When it comes to vampires, Daniel Gillies's Elijah is the cream of the crop. Since leaving The Vampire Diaries to headline The Originals we've seen the brother of Klaus grow from the altruistic, steadfast, suit-wearing stud into a complicated, nuanced lead. Gillies plays Elijah with elegance and grace and it is this ability to be good and true that has made not only the audience, but also Hayley, fall in love with him.
I was lucky enough to chat with the incredibly eloquent Gillies about the finale of The Originals, as well as where he sees Elijah's journey headed. And oh yeah, fatherhood -- Klaus isn't the only new daddy around here.
