The Originals has cast Christina Moses as a bisexual werewolf! From Deadline:

“Keelin, 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.”
