Joseph Morgan reveals the hidden hero

Nov 20 • by admin • No CommentsInterviews, The Originals

Thanksgiving is just a week away and that’s why EW has a new great interview with Joseph Morgan, where they talk The Originals and of course, food.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So I’m not sure if Aurora taking Rebekah’s body proves that she’s trustworthy or the exact opposite. Does Klaus trust her at this point?
I guess in her twisted little mind she’s taken Rebekah for safekeeping and possibly saved her from a worse fate. But she’s also now using Rebekah as a pawn in this game. We already saw her manipulate him going, “Nothing will happen to Rebekah as long as you do what I say so come back to bed.”

That’s not the worst command.
[Laughs] Let’s see how far she goes with it. I think his mind’s going a mile a minute now and I think he’s equal parts impressed and utterly betrayed and vengeful. It just seems like something he would do, and I think he can’t believe that he’s been Klaus’d. [Laughs] I think they were on the path to regaining some trust and rekindling some romance it seemed and I think that put the brakes on and now he’s in full plotting mode.

I love the softer side to Klaus.
Yeah but you wouldn’t love it if there wasn’t the harsher side, you know? You can’t have the rainbow without the rain. That’s why when people ask me which side of Klaus do you prefer, I take him as a whole. I accept him as a whole being in all of his fury and childlike innocence. I think he’s an extreme. He’s a person under a magnifying glass. The whole idea that vampires have exaggerated emotions, I feel like I took that and ran with it with this character. [Laughs] That’s really who he is. That’s what’s so fun about playing him.

So this week is Thanksgiving dinner. I always wonder who cooks these meals?
We put a line in — I don’t know if it will stay in the cut — about how Klaus has made the stuffing. That’s his contribution. [Daniel] Gillies and I love to have fun with some of the dialogue and play around a little bit and sometimes they allow us to do stuff and we always wonder what will make the cut because we’ll go too far if they let us. So there may or may not be a line about Klaus making the stuffing and Elijah’s opinion on that stuffing.

What about the rest of the meal?
I also like to believe that there’s some butler who spends a lot of time shopping, buying whiskey and candles. He goes into a room and lights all these beautiful candles and then scurries out just before our heroes enter and have a huge dramatic argument. And then [he] comes out and laboriously puts out each of the candles after they’ve left the room and fills up the whiskey decanters. It’s a thankless job and one day there will be an episode of The Originals that just follows him, sort of like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. We see behind the scenes what happens.

‘The Originals’ Season 3 trailer

Sep 12 • by admin • No CommentsPromo, The Originals

The Originals‘ season 3 trailer is now out and it looks very promising! Michael Narducci, The Originals showrunner, tells The Hollywood Reporter Season 3 is the season about sire lines. “We are going to meet some of the people who, in their early days as vampires, Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah turned,” he teases. “We’re going to see the first time someone was turned into a vampire. We’re going to see what life was like for the Mikaelson siblings, not long after Esther turned them; not long after Klaus killed his mother, not long after they went. In the present, we will see the return of some of these faces, and what their feelings are today — knowing full well if an Original vampire dies, the entire sire line dies. And what their point of view of that might be.”

How will the Mikaelsons fare in the war brewing between sire lines? Find out when The Originals moves to Thursdays at 9/8c, starting October 8.

SPOILER: The Originals Klaus and Cami to get a lot closer

Aug 14 • by admin • No CommentsThe Originals

Executive producer of The Originals told TVGuide in their exclusive interview that Klaus and Cami are about to spend more time together in the upcoming season. “When we begin the season, Klaus and Cami have a very professional relationship. He has been so awful and diabolical to his family and he’s begun to see Cami professionally, as if to tell Elijah, ‘See, I’m turning over a new leaf; I’m working through my issues with a therapist!'” However, Cami (played by Leah Pipes) now wants to help him. Narducci commented: “Cami, for her part, now as a licensed practitioner, wants to help this guy, if for no other reason than she knows as a member of the O’Connell family legacy she can do some small bit of good by helping Klaus rein in his temper and avoid killing innocent people. She feels a moral obligation to get involved in his life and be someone he can vent to and open up to and help him work through some of his anger. And where that relationship goes from there I think is very interesting.”

Do you believe there’s something more that can develop between those two?

SPOILER: Big fight coming up on The Originals

Aug 12 • by admin • No CommentsThe Originals

Entertainment Weekly has a new scoop on The Originals. Apparently, there’s a big fight coming for Joseph Morgan’s Klaus.

If Marcel is running the city on The Originals, is Klaus actually going to lay low for a while and just be a father? — Tom
I am not sure Klaus is capable of laying low. Just this week, Joseph Morgan filmed what he described as a “huge fight scene.” And from the description of it — lots of vamping and wire work — it sounds like it could be with another vampire. “There was definitely an emotional content to this fight,” Morgan reveals, playing coy on who’s on the receiving end of his wrath. Though, he does offer that “it’s been a long time coming.” I’m hoping his very first progeny comes a-calling!

Any guesses on who could be involved?

Joseph Morgan Previews The Originals Season 3

Jul 30 • by admin • No CommentsInterviews, The Originals

TVOvermind posted a lovely interview with Joseph Morgan, filmed at SDCC 2015. The Originals star discussed how the new threats that will emerge in Season 3 won’t be immediate relatives of the Mikaelsons but instead sired vampires of the original family that have come to New Orleans to seek vengeance, making this season less about Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah’s parents and more about their “children,” in a way. Additionally, Morgan also talks about how Klaus is doing as a full-time father with Hayley still trapped in her werewolf form for most of the month and if he believes his character will ever truly find love.

KSiteTV published a lovely roundtable interview with Joseph Morgan, conducted at the 2015 Comic-Con International in San Diego, where he talks the upcoming Season of The Originals. He reveals he is most excited that Season 3 will feature the presence of more vampires — particularly those who were the first in the sire line. The first season 1 was what he called The Season of the Witches, and Season 2 dealt with a lot of issues with parents. Season 3 will be “very much more vampire-centric.”

There will also be some new characters intruduced this Fall. Jason Dohting, known for his role in Veronica Mars, will be visiting New Orleans as Detective Will Kinney. Rumors are that Dohring will face off certain villains and he will try to curb their evil ways. Kenney is said to be confident, smart, with a firm grasp of what’s right and wrong. Two other that we’ll meet soon are vampires Aurora and Lucien. Aurora is described as a sexy and erratic vampire, though she can suddenly turn lethal in a snap of a finger. There have been no updates as to her role, besides her being another vampire, though there are rumors that Aurora might be a new love interest for Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) as he is still being ignored by Cami (Leah Pipes). Lucien is an attractive vampire who has a tumultuous history against the Mikaelsons.

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

Oct 7 • by admin • 1 Comment »Interviews, 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.
