The Originals Casting Scoop: Who are Sophie and Davina?

Move over, Bonnie Bennett, and make room for two new witches on The Vampire Diaries.

According to E! News, The CW is looking for a pair of actresses to come on board the April 25 installment of this drama, which, of course, will serve as the backdoor pilot for the wildly anticipated Vampire Diaries spinoff.

The first, Sophie, is described as a "strong leader" who is plotting some kind of revolution because her magic has been quelled.

The second, Davina, has a few demons in her closet, but has mostly lived a life sheltered by her caregivers.
