Happy Birthday Wishes for Claire Holt: Pictures and Fun Facts!

How would we describe Claire Holt in three words? Talented, kickass, and mesmerizing! When the gorgeous Aussie and former mermaid from H20: Just Add Water joined the Vampire Diaries cast in Season 3 as sassy yet vulnerable Original vampire Rebekah Mikaelson, we knew right away she was going to become a fan favorite. And guess what? She in fact has!

Not only does Claire possess a great deal of screen presence but she’s also eloquent, down-to-earth, and seems super sweet! Well, Miss Claire happens to celebrate her birthday on June 11, so in honor of her special day we’re following TVD tradition and celebrating with a round of stunning photos of the young starlet as well as a handful of fun facts about her.

Sink your teeth into the birthday festivities below!

Move aside, Regina George! Claire got her sass on in the hilarious Mean Girls 2 flick. (Her nickname on set was Clack!)

Wonder how Rebekah overpowered Damon Salvatore? Well, perhaps Claire's athletic prowess came in handy! She keeps busy with various sports and workouts!
