Containment might not live past its first season at The CW, but a couple of its stars will. EW has confirmed that both Kristen Gutoskie and Christina Moses have joined the casts of Julie Plec’s other shows.
Gutoskie, who plays Katie on Containment, will joins The Vampire Diaries‘ eighth season as Seline. The official character description says she’s “a warm, nurturing nanny of two young kids by day, and a small-town girl trying to find her place in a dangerous world by night. Bonded to her new ‘family’ in ways she can’t explain, Seline will fight desperately to protect the ones she loves.” Gutoskie will launch her recurring role in the first episode of season 8.
As for Moses, who plays Jana on Containment, she joins The Originals for its fourth season as Keelin, who’s described as “a smart, strong resourceful ER doctor — and the last living werewolf of her line. Keelin is openly bisexual, warm and unguarded by nature; but after the rest of her family was hunted to extinction, she went into hiding and since then she’s deliberately avoided getting too close to anyone. She lives in fear of being discovered by the wrong people and has no idea that she’s currently on a collision course with the Mikaelsons.” Moses will recur beginning with episode 401.
The Vampire Diaries is set to return Friday, Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. ET with The Originals slated for 2017.
