Every family needs a matriarch, even the Originals of The Vampire Diaries.
According to a report from TV Guide, British actress Alice Evans will step into the very old shoes of the hybrid-bearing mother of the Originals.
Alice Evans will make her first appearance as Esther in flashback scenes during the eigth episode of the third season.
Evans played young Eloise on the hit ABC show Lost and was also seen on Brother & Sisters. She's also the wife of Ringer's Ioan Gruffudd.
Here's where our detective work comes into play -- and remember it's mere speculation. We reported back in August that Sebastian Roche would turn up as a "hunter" on this season of The Vampire Diaries.
It was hard to tell as it was so quick, but he showed up in "The End of the Affair" as someone "hunting" Klaus and Rebekah. Is it possible that he will turn out to be the big, bad papa of the Originals? We think he might.
