Vampire Diaries’ Claire Holt is engaged!
Holt, who is best known for her role as Rebekah Mikaelson on the popular drama Vampire Diaries, just announced her engagement to Andrew Joblin earlier today. The Australian actress, 29, posted a romantic shot of herself kissing her fiancé and showing off her stunning new engagement ring. She captioned the Instagram, "My heart is so full ❤️"
In July, Holt made her relationship with Joblin public when she shared photos on Instagram of them vacationing in Italy. She posted multiple photos with her beau from the vacation, including one of them kissing alongside another couple, captioned, “Finally homeward bound after the best month of my life. Thanks for the memories!”
The exciting engagement news comes just months after the actress split from her ex-husband, TV producer Matthew Kaplan. In 2015, Holt announced that she and Kaplan were engaged just a year after she quit a Vampire Diaries spin-off show, The Originals, saying she did so to spend time with her family. “I made a life choice, not a career choice,” she said at the time.
Holt joined the cast of Vampire Diaries in 2011 and her success on the show lead to a handful of other major roles on television and movies. She recently starred in the 2017 thriller 47 Meters Down with Mandy Moore, playing Moore's younger sister that gets the two stuck in a shark cage at the ocean floor. Her latest work is in the 2018 film A Violent Separation, which will hit the big screen later next year.
