Claire Holt's success in the teen fantasy realm in her native Australia was the perfect jumping off point to a promising career in America. She first made waves with a starring role on the hit series "H20: Just Add Water" (Network 10, 2006-2010), as one of three teenaged girls who led double lives as mermaids. She followed it up with a featured role in "Mean Girls 2" (ABC Family, 2011), as a not-so-bright, promiscuous teenager, before going on to land a recurring role on the teen drama "Pretty Little Liars" (ABC Family, 2010- ), as the loyal friend of a high school student with dark, possibly murderous, secrets. Holt then landed an even juicier role on the supernatural drama "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ). Holt's portrayal of beautiful and manipulative "Original" vampire Rebekah was exactly the edge she needed to gain a whole new fan base and set her on a path to becoming one of Hollywood's fastest rising stars.
