Joseph Morgan on why Klaus doesn’t need a love interest

Oct 7 • by admin • No CommentsInterviews, The Originals

Joseph Morgan tells MTV Klaus shouldn’t necessarily be looking to settle down with anyone. Keep on reading to find out why.

“He’s very jealous,” Morgan told MTV News over the phone. “He’s not desiring a love interest specifically, but he wants to be the center of attention. That’s why he hates when Elijah and Rebekah are conspiring, and he hates if Elijah and Hayley are together, because that’s Elijah playing surrogate father to his child. Even though he doesn’t want to be there, he doesn’t want Elijah to be there [either]. He wants everybody to be focused on him, but he lacks the emotional tools to form healthy relationships with any of these people, so they’re drawn to each other instead.”

Morgan also said that Klaus has “the nature of a loner” and that he manages to destroy every relationship he’s ever had, which is why, during the premiere, we’ll see a Klaus that is barely even speaking to his brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and his baby’s mother Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin).

“They’ve really shut themselves away in the compound, they’re living as strangers,” Morgan continued. “They each remind each other of what they’ve collectively lost. It’s very difficult for them to communicate when we find them at the beginning. Elijah is worried for Hayley — being a hybrid now, having gone through that death and the loss of her daughter, she is struggling with her new nature. Elijah encourages Klaus to talk to her about it and help her come to terms with it, but you know Klaus. He’s not the greatest communicator. I’m not sure that that has the desired effect.”

What the result of this big conversation will be remains to be seen, but Morgan said that one thing remains crystal clear — Klaus and Hayley are a firm “It’s Complicated” on Facebook.

“It’s a turbulent relationship, as far as Klaus and Hayley are concerned,” he explained. “They’re really people who shouldn’t be in each others’ lives, but because of this child they have together, they’re forced to be. It’s a very interesting and very human dynamic to play.”

Of course, these relationships will soon be shaken up not only by the fight to win back baby Hope, but the arrival of Klaus and Elijah’s parents, Esther and Mikael, who come to New Orleans with separate (but equally sinister) plans for their not-so-much favorite son.

“He’s very emotionally threatened by his mother, because he’s always been a bit of a mummy’s boy,” Morgan said. “He learned at a young age that Mikael was not his birth father, but he’s always desired that kind of affirmation and affection from both parents. Mikael can be a very physically imposing threat to Klaus, and we will see some physical confrontations, but also some emotional confrontations with the parents in season two. I’m really not sure who is the bigger threat. I’d say Mikael is more direct in his confrontations, and Esther is more manipulative.”

The Mikaelson parents, the French Quarter witches, the Guerrera werewolves, and Klaus’ own self-destructive nature will prove to be a threat throughout season two, but Morgan said that nothing will distract Klaus from his one true goal: getting his daughter back.

“[Klaus' goal] 100 percent is to make New Orleans safe for his daughter, so he can bring her back and reunite their family,” Morgan concluded. “He wants the chance at redemption that his daughter will bring him, and he wants a chance to be a father. But he can’t do that while his enemies are running New Orleans.”

Thanks to Nazan for the heads up.

My dinner date with…Joseph Morgan

Sep 30 • by admin • No CommentsThe Originals

In the latest CW video, Joseph Morgan answers fan questions. The first question asked which cast member from The Originals was the funniest. The actor responded intelligently: “I assume you are not including me because, obviously, so I would have to say the cast member I like to laugh at the most is Daniel Gillies who plays… Elijah.”

After revealing that blood doesn’t scare him, he confessed his favorite line was from the show is “I’m gonna kill each and every and last one of you,” and added Klaus uses it in episodes 2, ,5, 7, 13, 17, 20, 21, and 22 of season 1.” It is also being featured in season 2.

The video ends with Morgan thanking fans for the questions.

Joseph Morgan and Persia White get married in Jamaica

Jul 23 • by admin • No CommentsPhotoshoot

Big congratulations to Joseph Morgan and Persia White on their marriage. I’d like to wish them all the very best.

The couple got married in an intimate ceremony in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on July 5.

“It had a very rustic feel to it,” White tells PEOPLE. “There was nothing about it that was overwhelming or very huge or fabulous in that way. We tried to keep everything really intimate and beautiful and sort of going along with nature.”

The bride wore a Vera Wang dress with a cathedral-length veil, while the groom sported an ivory-colored silk tux with black lapels by Miguel Wilson. “And then I had a bow tie,” adds Morgan. “In fact, the bow tie was the first bow tie I’ve ever tied myself, so I was quite proud of that.”

The couple, who met on the set of season 3 of The Vampire Diaries, exchanged vows in front of 26 guests at a private villa, within sight of where they got engaged.

“I think one of the reasons we picked it was because we love the ocean and we both grew up by the sea,” White says. “To be by the sea was wonderful. And the people of Jamaica are just wonderful.”

So, who made the exclusive guest list? “It was mostly family, a handful of close friends,” Morgan says. “My best man was my best friend of almost 20 years, Matt Ryan. He actually plays John Constantine on the new NBC show Constantine, but we’ve been friends since we were teenagers.”

The pair danced to Florence + the Machine’s “Never Let Me Go” for their first turn around the dance floor. But their favorite moment involved a band of Jamaican drummers.

“We had this great group called the Children of the Drums,” Morgan says. “It was six Jamaican drummers, and they got everybody up on the dance floor. At one point, all of our guests were on the dance floor, which is an achievement, I think.”

The food wasn’t too shabby, either, especially the cake, which was vegan – in keeping with the couple’s plant-based menu. “It was a triple-layer, chocolate on the inside and vanilla icing,” says White. “A beautiful, amazing cake.”

After helicoptering over to Negril for their honeymoon, the two relaxed by “partaking in the favorite local pastime – cliff jumping,” says Morgan. White adds: “That was what was more daunting than anything else. And we did it together, so we’re pretty proud of that.”

What’s next for the couple? Well, in addition to working on more film and TV projects together, they hope to start a family. Says White: “Little cute mini Josephs!”

‘Dermaphoria’ official trailer

May 14 • by admin • No CommentsDermaphoria

Dermaphoria film trailer is finally out and it looks very promising. Take a look yourself and let us know what you think!

East End filmmaker Ross Clarke (Skid Row, EEFF 2010heads West to America to make his stylish, atmospheric feature debut with Dermaphoria. A fragmented, involving plunge into a fractured psyche, Clarke’s film sees Eric Ashworth (Joseph Morgan, The Vampire Diaries) wake up in jail, accused of arson and incapable of piecing together the reasons for his being there. Recalling the mysterious, evocative name of Desiree (played by rising star Nicole Badaan), his past misdemeanours remain a mystery until, holed up in a low-rent motel, he discovers a strange new hallucinogen that allows him to recover his memories. Demystifying his clouded past, his former life as an illegal chemist becomes clearer; but as his tolerance for the drug increases, the world around him becomes more and more interchangeable with his imagination.

Also starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Walton Goggins (The Shield, Sons of Anarchy) and Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy), Clarke’s debut film is a phenomenally realised, hallucinatory experience. Making atmospheric use of its New Orleans setting, Dermaphoria alternately recalls Angel HeartMemento and 2013′s Upstream Colour. It represents the arrival of a truly talented, distinctive filmmaker, an artistic ‘coming of age’ that couldn’t be a better fit for the East End Film Festival in its 13th year.

Tickets for London East End Festival screening will be available shortly from the Genesis Cinema website. More information about the film and festival can be found here.
