The Originals revolves around Klaus (Joseph Morgan), who returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago, where he is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel (The Game‘s Charles Michael Davis).

Campbell, who also co-starred in the feature Prom, will play Davina, a young and troubled witch who has been over-sheltered by protective caregivers.

The pilot will air April 25 as an episode of The Vampire Diaries. Showrunner Julie Plec will pen the script for Warner Bros. Television.
