There's a new witch coming to the Big Easy!
Shannon Kane, a fan favorite on All My Children, has been cast in the recurring role of Sabine on The Originals, the CW's highly anticipated Vampire Diaries spin-off, we've exclusively learned.
Described as wild, bold and sexy, Sabine is a street-smart tour guide in New Orleans who also happens to secretly be a leading member of the French Quarter's witch community. So we're guessing she's not a fan of Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) then!
Aside from her 172-episode turn as Natalia Fowler on All My Children, Kane also starred on the drama Hollywood Heights as Traci Madsen and appeared in Madea's Big Happy Family.
Speaking of the differences fans can expect to see between The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, creator Julie Plec recently said, "[The Originals] is about the power of the family community and the power struggle over the family community and the supernatural community of an entire city. We like to look at it as, we graduated from high school and went to college and are getting our master's degree in The Originals."
The Originals premieres Thursday Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. following the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries on the CW. The series will then move to its regularly scheduled night on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m.
