The Originals has just cast a Stargate actress for a very witchy role.

SGU Stargate Universe’s Elyse Lévesque, who played Chloe Armstrong on the short-run sci-fi series, will appear on the popular CW series in the recurring role of redheaded witch Genevieve.

According to TV Line, “The seductive and deceptive Genevieve returns to New Orleans with a mysterious agenda and some unfinished business with Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis).”

There’s a hint that her character may have something to do with the secret shared by the former lovers, which was teased at in Tuesday’s awesome fall finale.

Lévesque’s first appearance on The Originals will be in episode 13, and the series will return to TV on Jan. 14.

Are you excited about Elyse Lévesque joining the cast? What do you think her arrival will mean?
