Aussie actress Holt finds 'dream job' in Georgia
NEW YORK (AP) - Australian actress Claire Holt knew her career choice would take her to Hollywood, but the small town of Covington, Georgia, was a different story.
The 24-year-old is a cast member of The Vampire Diaries, which films in Covington, about 72m outside Atlanta, most of the year. The show premieres its fourth season on The CW on Thursday.
"I didn't really think about a television show sending me somewhere else," Holt said in a recent interview." She was hired to appear in a few episodes early in the show's third season, but the role was expanded.
Filming runs from June to April. Holt describes getting used to the area and the intense humidity in the summer as "an adjustment," though she's now feeling more comfortable.
