When word first came of “The Originals,” a spinoff of “The Vampire Diaries” on The CW, a major character named Marcel was yet to be cast, but that’s changed now. Read on for the details.
Deadline reports that Charles Michael Davis (“Switched at Birth,” “The Game”) will portray Klaus’ diabolical former protégé in the potential new series, which will be introduced via a backdoor pilot episode of “TVD” airing April 25th.
“The Originals” stars Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, and Phoebe Tonkin, all of whom are reprising their roles on “The Vampire Diaries” of brothers Klaus and Elijah and werewolf Hayley, respectively, along with Daniella Pineda as Sophie, a witch whose magic has been silenced but not snuffed. Written by “TVD” co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec, “The Originals” centers on the Original family of vampires as Klaus returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with Marcel. Elijah, intent on helping his self-destructive sibling find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.
