Claire Holt: 5 Things To Know
You may know her as the mad, bad and dangerous to know Original Vampire Rebekah from the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, but Aussie actress Claire Holt has many strings to her bow. Earlier this year she played Penny, a ‘good Christian girl’ in the Comedy Drama Blue Like Jazz whom she describes as a ‘complete polar opposite’ to Rebekah. We sat down with Aussie actress Claire Holt last week to talk The Vampire Diaries (Interview here) and to play ’5 Things to Know’ with us.
Screen Spy: What’s your favorite color?
Claire Holt: My favorite color is yellow.
Screen Spy: What’s your favorite travel destination?
Claire Holt: Hm, right now I would have to say my home in Australia. I never get to go home. If I’m going to go anywhere it will be back to my family and my home.
Screen Spy: What do you do to unwind?
Claire Holt: I just did a triathlon! I like to be outside. I like to work out and swim and run and ride my bike and be in the outdoors.
Screen Spy:What’s your favorite book?
Claire Holt: Hmm … my favorite book. I love the Harry Potter books. I think they’re my favorites. I know everyone says that but I really loved them. Those were the books I read faster than any others. I devoured them. I’m such a big fan.
Screen Spy: Do you have any pets?
Claire Holt: I don’t. I had a dog in Australia and a pet bunny rabbit here but he chewed through all the wires in my house. I had to send him to a home that didn’t have as many exposed wires!” [laughing] I love animals. I wish I had a pet.
