The actress and the CW gave fans a first look at The Originals characters Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson's former lover Tuesday, revealing a pic of the actress rocking braided, crimped hair and a long sleeved belted dress. "Here's your first look of Tatia," Nina captioned the shot.
Vampire Diaries showrunner Julie Plec first revealed in September that Nina would be crossing over to the Originals, telling E! Online, "There was a character's name introduced a long time ago in season three in association with Klaus and Elijah and how they became vampires and a girl that they both loved a long time ago who was the original doppelgänger, Tatia. So Nina Dobrev will be visiting The Originals for a nice little storyline in our fifth episode which airs November 3."
"What we remember from The Vampire Diaries, for those who watch both shows, is that [Klaus and Elijah] both loved her, so it's a little bit of history repeating itself like with Stefan and Damon," Julie continued. "And then Esther, their mother, killed her so that she could make Klaus not a hybrid. There's lots of secrets and scandal and romance and terrible tragedy attached to her character. We'll get to go back into the past to see how that all played out."
Originals star Joseph Morgan – who plays Klaus on the show - told TV Line the episode will be "shocking," adding, "It's pretty grim. I don't want to spoil too much, but it's definitely revealing of the brothers and what happened back then."
