Exclusive: Claire Holt Is Returning to The Originals Alongside the Original Finn!

Another Vampire Diaries character makes their way to The Originals

Robyn Ross

Get ready for more Mikaelsons! The original Finn (Casper Zafer) is making his debut on The Originals season premiere in a flashback scene that will also include fan favorites Claire Holt and Nathaniel Buzolic.

"[It's] a flashback that we've never seen before," Michael Narducci tells TVGuide.com. "We've always understood that the Mikaelson family, the brothers and sister, had to flee in the wake of Esther's death by Klaus' hands. Klaus blamed Mikael and said, 'We have to go. Our father is insane,' and for a very long time Mikael chased them. So wouldn't it be cool to see the family not long after that? What was their state of mind? What were their relationships like? How did they relate to one another knowing Mikael was out there somewhere, and they're relatively new vampires so what was their existence like? I think it might be surprising and interesting."

Mega Buzz: Klaus and Cami are getting closer on The Originals!

Zafer last appeared as Finn on Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries. The character was resurrected in The Originals Season 1 finale, but was played by Yusuf Gatewood until Freya drew out his soul from Vincent's body and into her talisman.

Are you excited for the big Originals flashback? Season 3 returns on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c on The CW.
