You’ve already had the pleasure of meeting Aiden Flowers and Perry Cox, the adorable child actors cast as young Niklaus and Elijah Mikaelson, respectively. Now prepare to have your heart melt over the utterly precious actress who is set to play the boys’ baby sister, Rebekah in The Originals Season 1 Episode 16!
Let’s please give a very warm welcome to the talented and delightful Callie Brook McClincy!
The bio on her official Facebook page reads as follows: “Callie is a professional pretender! She loves to sing and dance, and looks forward to every opportunity to step into someone else’s shoes and story.” Aww! Isn’t she a cutiepie? With her blonde waves, wondrous, blue eyes, and sweet smile, this little lady is the spitting image of Claire Holt, who plays the adult version of Rebekah on The Vampire Diaries spinoff. Moreover, Callie is just as brilliant of an actress; taking into account how she’s still at the start of her film and television career, it’s amazing that she’s already booked so many great roles! Along with her highly anticipated Originals gig, this little lady stars as Sharon Blackwell in “11 Seconds”, Hanna James in the TV movie “Anna Nicole,” and young Karen Wheaton in “It’s Supernatural.”
Just like the other pint-sized Mikaelsons, she will be making her official debut in a significant flashback scene in “Farewell to Storyville.” Will it be the one in which Elijah reveals a shocking secret about their family? Perhaps, but one thing’s for sure: the trio’s childhood vignettes will be memorable and oh-so-endearing, especially when contrasted with the show’s constant slew of supernatural battles and bloodshed.
Overall, we’re excited to see Callie in action as the feisty little Viking. Considering how we recently found out that Rebekah is Mikael’s favorite child and that she was also quite sneaky for such a small tyke (basically, she did naughty things and blamed them on Klaus like any younger sibling would), we’re intrigued to see her as an itty bitty girl.
Do you approve of this casting decision, loves? What do you think baby Rebekah Mikaelson was like? Sound off in the comments!
The Originals episode 16 airs Tuesday, March 11 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Be sure to tune in for all the shocking reveals and showdowns. (And, obviously, lots of cuteness!)
