The Originals player Maisie Richardson-Sellers talked about Eva and her history in an interview with TV Fanatic. Get the scoop:
In the next episode we find out some really interesting things, which are a bit of a surprise to us. We’ll also see her not clearly as this evil character. We’re going to learn about why she is the way she is, which is great, so definitely watch for that. We know she was in the asylum and she’s been dealt with before, so how’s she going to be dealt with this time.
The actress also teased what fans can expect in next week’s episode (titled “Save My Soul”):
Well, she’s in a very confused state. Rebekah’s having these visions and
she realizes that Eva is attempting to reclaim her body so she turns to those witches around her who are the most powerful, which are Davina and Freya to see if they can help her. But obviously since it’s new territory, everyone’s trying to figure out what could we possibly do. So in the next episode, we learn more about Eva, we learn more about Freya, and we figure out how we’re going to approach this issue. Meanwhile, it’s becoming more and more of an issue because Eva’s becoming more and more powerful. Time is of the essence.
