Danielle Campbell (Prison Break) is the latest new regular cast in the potential Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, which will be introduced in the April 25 episode of the CW drama. Written by TVD co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec, The Originals centers on the Original family of vampires, as Klaus (Joseph 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 (Charles Michael Davis). Campbell, repped by CESD and Evolution, will play Davina, a young witch who has been over-sheltered by her protective caregivers.
Chin Han (The Dark Knight, Contagion) has joined the cast of the CW’s breakout new drama Arrow, which has joined TVD as the CW’s highest-rated series. He will play Frank Chen, a successful businessman and old friend of the Queen family. He has ties to The Undertaking, a mysterious group led by Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) that is up to no good in the Arrow’s home town of Starling City. Han, repped by Van Johnson Co., recently shot HBO Asia’s first original series, Serangoon Road.
