Based on the news that The Originals is shooting a new pilot for the fall, we imagine we’ll be seeing a lot more of Davina (Danielle Campbell) in the new show’s first episode.
Though Davina had some scenes in the backdoor pilot — which aired as part of The Vampire Diaries Season 4 — they were cut. “She would be too much of a cliffhanger for the show,” Danielle Campbell told Wetpaint Entertainment at the CW Upfronts.
So what can we expect from this mystery girl come fall? It sounds like both Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) want Davina on their side when it comes to their fight over who will control New Orleans. Danielle explains, “She is a very powerful witch who gets stuck in the power struggle. So it’s going to be very exciting. There’s a lot of surprises with her.”
It sounds like Davina hasn’t picked a side yet, because Danielle adds, “You’re gonna see her character grow a lot.”
So what makes this magical miss such a hot commodity? “She’s a witch who has a lot of power, more than is good for her,” Danielle tells TVFanatic.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Davina has a dark side. Her guardians attempted to protect her from the outside world, but she’s captivated by New Orleans.
