The CW Airs Trailer for “The Vampire Diaries” Spinoff, Featuring Pineda

Daniella Pineda is ready for her close-up…

The Mexican-American actress will be starring in next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, which will actually serve as the pilot for The Originals, a spinoff of the CW’s hit supernatural series.

Daniella Pineda

The CW aired the pilot’s extended trailer, featuring Pineda as a witch whose magic has been silenced but not killed, after the show’s episode this week.

Airing April 25, The Originals sends Klaus (Joseph Morgan) to the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago. He’s soon reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). Elijah (Daniel Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.

Phoebe Tonkin and Claire Holt reprise their roles, while Pineda, Danielle Campbell, and Leah Pipes join as new additions.

In the minute-long promo, we see how the story leaves Mystic Falls — with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) finding out Klaus skipped town — and follows Klaus as he reunites with his old friends.

When he reunites with Marcel, Klaus sees how different things have become and how powerful his mentee is. “Loyalty. Family. I want what he has,” Klaus says. “I want it back. I want to be king!”

On the cover, the former Desperate Housewives star – who spent much of the year campaigning for Barack Obama – appears in white-haute lingerie with smoky eye makeup and tousled hair.

Eva Longoria's GC Mexico Shoot

Even though she brings the sexy for her GQ Mexico photo shoot, Longoria hopes people find her beautiful for other reasons.

“I hope that people think I’m beautiful for all the work I do concerning charity and philanthropy, or political activism,” the actress told GQ Mexico. “For me, these are the things that define beauty. Beauty lies, mainly, in someone’s personality, not on their skin.”

Meantime, Longoria is set to heat up the big screen in January with her upcoming action flick, The Baytown Outlaws, which also stars Paul Wesley and Billy Bob Thornton. In the film, Longoria plays a woman who relies on three brothers to help save her son from an abusive father.
