The CW has confirmed that Claire Holt is leaving The Originals, the spinoff from The Vampire Diaries. Between The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, Holt has appeared in over 50 episodes as Rebekah Mikaelson, Klaus and Elijah's temperamental little sister. The Wrap reported that "show producers had decided that Rebekah's storyline was advancing in such a way that the character was no longer needed in a series regular capacity." This week's episode was her last, though she could appear as a guest in the future. This is sad and very unexpected news, fellow CW fans. What will the show do without her?
