Three weeks ago, The Originals season 2 unleashed a huge Freya size reveal. The oldest Mikaelson haunts the witch imprisonment home, with possible unfinished business. Esther’s backstory left a huge door open for the character’s introduction. However, The Originals‘ team still managed to surprise us with the nature of it. A Mikaelson ghost can only complicate things on The Originals season 2.
Soon Freya may reclaim her spot in the Mikaelson family. This might lead to the death of one of them…more about that coming soon. We expect Freya to play an important role in the rest of The Originals season 2, so who will take on this major role?
Continue on to find out more about the actresses playing Freya Mikaelson on The Originals season 2.
Freya made her first adult appearance on “Gonna Set Your Flag on Fire.” Her long blonde hair completely shielded her face. The Originals season 2 team did this intentionally to hide the actress. Hannah Bliss-Carlton temporarily stepped into the Freya shoes for the episode.
Bliss-Carlton has been a long-time extra for The Vampire Diaries. She’s also been an extra on other shows. Bliss-Carlton acted as a body double for the ghost Freya. She may appear in other episodes but she’s not the official face of Freya.
Eventually, Riley Voelkel becomes it. Voelkel’s biggest acting roles include playing young Fiona on American Horror Story: Coven and Jenna Johnson on The Newsroom. Currently, Voelkel can been seen on the Amazon studio pilot for Point of Honor, which also stars Nathan Parsons (Jackson).
Voelkel also appeared on Glee and The Mentalist. The Originals season 2 team hasn’t released an official date for Voelkel’s first appearance, but we cannot wait to see how Freya’s story unfolds.
