The Originals TVD Spinoff: Daniella Pineda Cast as Series Regular to Play Witch Sophie

the-originals-casting-daniella-pinedaDeadline is reporting that Daniella Pineda has been cast to play Sophie on the TVD spinoff, The Originals.

Daniella Pineda (Fitzgerald Family Christmas) has landed a regular role in the potentialVampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, which will be introduced as an upcoming episode of TVD  that airs April 25. The Originals stars TVD’ Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin reprising their roles. Written by TVD co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec, The Originals centers on the Original family of vampires, as Klaus (Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel. Elijah (Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.

Pineda will play Sophie, a witch whose magic has been silenced but not snuffed. A leader and a sexy, sharp-tongued social force, she is quietly sowing the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers. Pineda, repped by Innovative and manager Kristen Ames, co-starred in the NBC pilot Midnight Sun last season and recently guest starred on Showtime’s Homeland.
