Claire Rhiannon Holt was born on June 11, 1988 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. From an early age, she enjoyed singing, playing the piano and guitar, and was a member of the school choir. A 2005 graduate of Stuartholme High School in Queensland, she first appeared in commercials before launching her acting career on Network 10's popular teen series "H20: Just Add Water," about three teenage girls who transform into mermaids when they come into contact with water. Holt's character, Emma Gilbert, was the most confident and responsible out of the three mermaids, as well as possessed the power to freeze water, and to control clouds, ice and snow. After leaving the series, Holt appeared in the ABC Family made-for-TV movie "Mean Girls 2," a sequel to the blockbuster hit comedy "Mean Girls" (2004) about high school female cliques starring Lindsay Lohan. In the sequel, Holt played a slow-witted blonde with a raging libido.
Having had much success on teen fantasy series, Holt continued to make inroads with a recurring role on the drama "Pretty Little Liars," about four girls who run the risk of having their secrets revealed by a mysterious figure who sends them cryptic notes. In 2011, Holt joined the cast of The CW's supernatural drama "The Vampire Diaries," about teenaged Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) who is torn between two vampire brothers, Stefan (Paul Wesley ) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). Holt's character, Rebekah, instantly became a fan favorite due in no small part to her queen bee antics and her often humorous desire to enjoy high school despite being a vampire. Typical of Rebekah's behavior she held Elena, Stefan and others captive at the local high school, forcing them to play a manipulative and painful game of truth or dare. In early 2013, Holt joined the cast of a spin-off series "The Originals," along with co-stars Joseph Morgan, who played her sociopathic vampire brother Klaus, and Phoebe Tonkin, who played a werewolf.
