Actress Natalie Zea plays the role of Claire in the hit television series The Following. For The Following season one finale, they decided to film two different endings. One where Claire is killed off and one where Claire survives. Natalie says that she and series creator Kevin Williamson wanted to kill Claire off but Fox insisted that she had to stay alive.
Zea was talking to the guys over at TV Guide, when she told them, "My concern, and Kevin Williamson's concern, was always, is there more story to tell with Claire? And we both discovered that maybe there wasn't."
The former Justified star then went n to say, "I feel like what would need to happen [for Claire to continue] would be a change to her DNA In other words, she might have to break bad a little bit."
As well as starring Natalie Zea, The Following also stars Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore, Valorie Curry, Nico Tortorella and James Purefoy, to name just a few of the other cast members. The Following season two will return to Fox in 2014, although an official premiere date has yet to be confirmed.
