We learned during last month’s San Diego Comic-Con that both Claire Holt (Rebekah) and Nathaniel Buzolic (Kol) will be returning for flashbacks during Season 3 of “The Originals,” and now, thanks to TV Guide, we know they’ll be joined by Casper Zafer as their wayward brother Finn.
Zafer, pictured below, last appeared as the character back in Season 3 of “The Vampire Diaries.” Finn was resurrected in “The Originals” but played by Yusuf Gatewood.
As for what the siblings will be up to, “[It’s] a flashback that we’ve never seen before,” exec producer Michael Narducci told the Guide. “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.”
Odds are good we’ll see at least a few of them in the present day as well, but only time will tell so stay tuned! Season 3 kicks off October 8th at 9PM following the Season 7 premiere of sister series “The Vampire Diaries.” For more info in the meantime, visit “The Originals” on CWTV.com, “like” “The Originals” on Facebook, and follow “The Originals” on Twitter.
