In case you missed the Originals panel, you can watch it below. Thanks to Emma for uploading the video!

Some highlights:

“Klaus can’t be with Caroline – he messes up love interests when he finds them.” – Joseph Morgan when asked about Klaroline
Julie Plec: “I don’t like villains who are just villainous. Any character we explore has layers, emotional weaknesses.”
Joseph Morgan says it was a wonderful day when #TheOriginals came together as its own show.
Daniel Gillies: “I adored Joe and wanted to see where we could take this new kingdom.”
“There’s some excitement that my brother is coming to the dark side.” – Joseph Morgan

Joseph Morgan talks working on The Originals

Mar 18 • by admin • No CommentsInterviews, The Originals

Digital Spy has a spoiler free interview with Joseph Morgan, who talks working on The Originals.

How delicious is it to play the bad guy?
“I love it. I’m having so much fun; that’s why I’m doing this show. I wanted to explore the character further – and that’s exactly what I get to do. Originally, I thought I would only want to play Klaus for about a year on The Vampire Diaries - but he’s just turned out to be such a great character because he is so multi-faceted. There’s more to him then just being a two-dimensional evil character. We’ve learned more about his motives and what drives him. We’ve learned about his vulnerabilities and what made him like he is: his history with his family, with his father and mother, and the rejection from his siblings, and so on. It’s a lot of fun.”

Claire Holt as Rebekah and Joseph Morgan as Klaus in The Originals: 'Apres Moi, Le Deluge'
What else do you enjoy about playing Klaus?
“It’s also fun to be the character who brings the chaos. He’s the guy who comes in and scatters the chips everywhere, rather than trying to put everything back together, which is what some of the characters on the other show got stuck doing. I get to play a lot more of the theatrical side of Klaus as well, when he’s playing to a crowd or when he’s holding court or holding people hostage. It’s a lot of fun. I really enjoy it; I’m nowhere near done with it yet.”

How much fun do you have working on the flashback scenes? Klaus has a very cultured past…
“You’re right; he is cultured. When I auditioned for the role a few years ago, the audition notes referred to the fact that Klaus was a fan of opera. I thought to myself, ‘That’s so interesting’. Then they made him a painter and he also shows an interest in literature and poetry. He reads a William Blake poem in one of the episodes, which is really nice. I like working on the period scenes a lot.”

How much work is involved in those scenes?
“I think it’s more work for everyone because there are more to the costumes. There are wigs involved and things like that, but the sets also have to be transformed. It’s a lot of fun, though. Where else do you get to play a character in the present day and in the past? I’ve done period drama before and I’ve done modern day shows, but to do it all in one show and to show the evolution of a character over a huge amount of time is a great bonus for me.”

What would you like to see happen to Klaus this season?
“This season, I’d like to see him embrace the idea of being a father a little more. I feel like he is embracing the idea a little, but he’s very conflicted. He’s conflicted about everything though!”

What is Klaus going to be like as a father?
“I would imagine he’d be a stern disciplinarian. If it’s a girl and she grows up to be a teenager, woe betide the boys that she tries to bring back to the house! To be honest, I don’t know what he’s going to be like as a father. I think he’ll need the help of his siblings to put him in his place and help him stay honourable and good.”

After accusing Klaus (Joseph Morgan) of doing nothing while their control over the Quarter crumbles, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) makes a move to take matters into his own hands. He receives an intriguing offer of support from Francesca (guest star Peta Sergeant), a beautiful woman from a powerful New Orleans family. In an attempt to bring the warring factions of the city together, the Mikaelsons throw an extravagant party, where Klaus offers Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) a tempting deal, Elijah and Hayely share a dance, and a violent fight comes to a surprising end. Finally, even as Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) works on a new path to power, he continues to help Cami (Leah Pipes) deal with her Uncle Kieran’s tragedy (guest star Todd Stashwick)

I also added ten high quality episode stills to our gallery.

Joseph Morgan surveys the fraught future of the Mikaelson family

Mar 11 • by admin • No CommentsInterviews, The Originals

From Zap2It:

While you prep for the emotional turmoil of Tuesday’s (March 11) epic episode of “The Originals,” “Farewell to Storyville,” you should probably fire up your CWTV app, because star Joseph Morgan wants you to marathon the past two episodes.

He tells Zap2it that episodes 14, 15 and 16 “are sort of a chapter in themselves.” Explains the star, “They’re sort of a three-parter. If you had them all on DVD you’d watch them as a marathon. Sixteen should be called ‘Family Business’ because it’s very much centered around Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah.”

The episode will feature the surviving Mikaelson siblings finally getting in some much-needed group therapy. “It’s them in one location thrashing out everything. Everything comes out — all the secrets. Everything’s out on the table and they realize we have to deal with this as a family now. Can we move forward? Can we forgive each other? Can we forget?”

Joseph Morgan on his family, fans and Klaus’ dead brothers

Mar 4 • by admin • No CommentsInterviews, The Originals

In his newest interview Joseph Morgan talks his supportive family, passionate fans, Klaus’ dead brothers and more. Keep on reading to find out if there’s any chance Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) and Finn (Casper Zafer) will come to New Orleans.

Klaus has this bratty, middle child-syndrome kind of deal. Does Klaus’ family dynamic relate to your own in any way?
No, I just have one brother, younger than me. I didn’t grow up in that way, and my parents stayed together and were very loving. One thing I can relate to is the closeness and the value of family. We moved to Wales when I was quite young but we frequently visited the rest of my family especially my mother’s side. Woe to anyone who does them wrong.

Speaking of Klaus’ siblings, there were two others who were killed off on The Vampire Diaries. Now with the spin-off, is there any regret in doing away with those two brothers? Is there any chance we’ll see them in flashbacks or in the present even?
It’s not my decision to regret. [Laughs.] We always hear whispers of storylines to come, and about 50% of them pan out. The writer’s room constantly adapts and changes things and goes with characters that are making an impact and kills off characters that aren’t, latching on to certain storylines and working around other actors’ schedules. There’s all these factors that come into play.

But there’s possibilities to bring them back in a 1,000 years worth of flashbacks, and secondly, we are a supernatural show. There’s always a chance an incantation can be found, or some kind of loophole that the witches never saw coming.

You mentioned being a big fan of this horror. It’s so popular right now. What would you say The Originalsbrings to the table that other TV dabbling in the supernatural doesn’t?
We’re a more adult show than the show that we came from. The city is very much a character. We’re very into the reputation that the city has for decadence. And then the idea of a war, I feel like we’re among the most epic shows in that respect. We’re dealing with these beings who are a thousand years old, these Originals. They could only have existed in Mystic Falls for so long before it became a little ludicrous, in my opinion. The stakes are so high for creatures like that. They need to be involved, they need to have epic action, they need to be involved in a war for their species. What we’re really trying to do is grow the scale a bit.

We’re still finding our feet too, don’t get me wrong. We’re a first season and I feel like episodes 14, 15 and 16 are the best we’ve done, and it’s because we’re starting to find our tone, our groove and step out on our own. To say, this is the show we are, and it’s a little darker, a little more psychological than its predecessor.

If I could separate The Originals from The Vampire Diaries in a nutshell I’d say that The Vampire Diaries is more coming-of-age, and we’re more these monsters reveling in who they are and what they are. It’s the end of days for us Mikaelsons. They’ve come to New Orleans to eventually self destruct, to kill each other or love each other, but it’s all going to happen in that city.

You’ve been playing this role for a couple years now, your biggest role to date. You also just won the People’s Choice award for Favorite Actor in a New Series. Now that your fame is blowing up, have you had any crazy run-ins with fans?
The fans are so incredible and so incredibly determined. In New York, I was late for an event for the Upfronts. I was with my girlfriend and there were a lot of fans of various shows camped out outside the hotel, so you’d get a lot of people shouting for photos as soon as you walked out. I was so late so I jumped into the car they provided, and we were just trying to make it there. And a couple of these girls ran down the road after the town car, just running through the streets of New York, and they kept running.

And we kept going for six, seven blocks, and it was like, they’re still there! Then we stopped at a light and I thought, “We’ve gotta get out and take a photo with these girls because this is crazy.” That they would want that so much was so bonkers to me. That was a moment of realization for me that people really like this show.
