    My name is Sarah and I am %100 confident with my acting. I am practically 13 and I don’t ever recall getting an F on my grade. To me, the originals is a lot like the vampire diaries. It has sort of a dark mysterious feeling that just wants to make you have a crooked smile (might sound strange, but I bet it’s relatable.)If I ever get a tough role with many lines, I am willing to stay up late just to memorize it. I am very mature for my age an am fully prepared and fluid about the outcome of my role when it comes to the Originals.

  19. Jenny Rios

    Hello my name is Jenny Rios. I have dark brown hair but I have it dyed red. I am 18 years old soon to be 19. I think what you guys have prepared for the new season is amazing. All the seasons have been amazing. I am #1 fan of the originals. No I am not a professional actress. I’m just a normal civilian/person. But having the opportunity to be on one of the most popular and amazing shows on TV would be a wonderful opportunity and I would feel lucky and very grateful. I wouldn’t mind doing something small, like just not much as long as I will be there. No matter if I’m just a extra vampire or whatever role/small role I could do I would take. Having the opportunity would be great. One thing about myself is that , if I have to remember my lines I can do that quickly and fast because I’m really great on learning and remembering. So learning lines would be a piece of cake to me. I’m also great on acting. I’ve done it before but I did for 4 years in high school, being in drama. Please contact me thank you.

  22. Zack Roberts

    My name is Zack Roberts,
    I have been a fan ever since the dawn of vampire diaries.
    I enjoy the maturity of the originals a bit more though.
    I am highly educated on the knowledge of the supernatural.

    I am 5’11, Slim, I have hybrid jeans my father was Scandinavian, blond hair and lucid blue eyes.
    Although I took my mother’s jeans.
    I have a very narrow jaw structure I can tell you strait up I fit the part.
    I dress the style of the characters daily, my features are dark & sexy.
    I am 23 years old I have long dark hair & unique eyes that change.
    I’d love to send photos of my vampiric poses & natural poses.
    My fiance has also applied she is an international model.
    We would both love to play a part.
    I am confident enough to say I wouldn’t be an add for long before you’d want me to stay.
    Or adleast kill me off in a theatrical way lol.
    I would be beyond pleased if I was given this opportunity! Been thinking that since the beginning.

  24. Kaely Malik

    Name: Kaely Malik
    Age: 19
    Height: 5’4″
    Weight: 128 pounds
    Eyes: Hazel
    Hair: Dark Brown
    Race: I am a mix of Irish, Pakistani, and Lebanese.

    Why I want to be a part of The Originals: I have felt connected with all of the characters in this series because of all of their constant uncertainty of what will happen next, but still having the drive to move forward out of love. I can dive into any character – witch, vampire, or werewolf – because I can understand that they all have motivations to commit their sometimes violent actions against one another.
    I can bring diversity in both personality and appearance, and can be both humorous and serious. I have acting experience with Jane Kelly at the Actors Workshop of South Florida and believe that I can contribute to The Originals because I can channel any character given to me.
