Thanks to Mr. Santos for the heads up!
Joseph Morgan says he hopes something changes inside Klaus once his baby is born. “If Klaus sees the baby or gets to hold the baby, I don’t know if it’ll make him go more in that [nurturing] direction or send him the other way. I can see him not being able to handle it,” he tells TV Guide. “With him becoming a father it’s interesting to see how that affects his bloodlust.”
Joseph has also commented on Klaus’ relationship with his siblings, which has changed a lot throughout the season: “[T]he family has become tighter and more important to him — both with his sister and brother and his potential “modern family.” They’re becoming that tight unit and they’ll have to work together to really keep a hold of the city and make things work.”
The changes did not only impact the character. The British actor admitted he likes The Original hybrid more the way he is now. “I would say he’s become more likable. I like him more, I’ve always liked him, but I feel like there’s more honor. His brother is rubbing off on him! Impending fatherhood has caused him to face his own demons. It’s really come full circle and that’s the season in a nutshell: him having to deal with his past in order to be able to deal with his future.”
What about the finale? What can we expect? E!Online found out that the tonight’s episode is “huge” and “it’s also very terrifying”. In Joseph’s words: “It’s a really frightening episode.” He promises, “I don’t think you’re going to be disappointed. We’re going to go out real strong.”
Are you ready for The Originals season finale? You better be, because it’s just hours away now!

As the baby’s due date draws near, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) embark on a search for Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), while Hayley herself is determined to do whatever it takes to keep her unborn baby safe and away from the witches. Francesca (guest star Peta Sargent) takes a meeting with Oliver (guest star Chase Coleman) and Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) to determine the future of the werewolves in New Orleans. In the aftermath of a surprising attack on Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and his vampires at the compound, Davina (Danielle Campbell) and Cami (Leah Pipes) join resources to take down Klaus. Finally, in a desperate move to protect those most important to him, Klaus makes a heartbreaking decision.

Season two of The Originals is coming to our screens in Fall.
The line-up for the East End Film Festival (June 13-25) has been revealed. The 13th edition of the festival will open on Friday 13th June with the world premiere of Dermaphoria.
Dermaphoria follows an experimental chemist who wakes up in a New Orleans jail with amnesia, accused of arson and links to a drug-manufacturing ring. The cast includes Joseph Morgan, Ron Perlman, Walton Goggins, Anwan Glover and Kate Walsh.
Congratulations to the whole team.
Joseph Morgan describes The Originals finale as “absolutely action-packed and utterly heartbreaking and emotional.” Season one finale will begin with episode 21 titled The Battle of New Orleans airing on Tuesday, May 6, and conclude with episode 22, From a Cradle to a Grave, on May 13.
The British actor teases Zap2It readers saying, “It all comes to a head. It really opens the world up but also it’s fearless. They’ve never been afraid to kill characters that we like and they’ve never been afraid to let people do things that might make them unpopular, and both of those things will happen in the next two episodes.” Should we get worried?
The last two episodes will be very intense. “Each faction seems to be getting ready to make their move – the wolves to get their hands on the stones to make these rings so they can control their curse, and the witches are getting ready to try and sacrifice the child, and there’s uproar in the human community after Father Kieran died and Francesca is trying to take over, the vampires and Marcel are getting ready to make their move as we saw, and the Originals [are plotting],” Joseph explains.
“The whole season has been a pleasure, but the last few episodes especially are like a rocket ship and I think we’re going to finish very strong,” he says. “It’s utterly compelling you to watch next season.”
Joseph Morgan talks to OTRC.com at a PaleyFest event honoring The Originals on March 22, 2014.
Here’s a short video of Joseph Morgan’s and Persia White’s arrival at PaleyFest 2014.
The gallery has been updated with the first few photos from the event. More will be added throughout the day.

“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

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.”
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.”
The Originals is all new tonight and below you can check out what’s ahead of us.

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)
