‘The Originals’ Daniel Gillies on Elijah and Hayley love, Klaus as a dad and more

Zap2It

As “The Originals” prepares for its Season 3 premiere, there’s much to talk about in terms of the Mikaelson family. After working together to defeat Dahlia (Claudia Black) in the Season 2 finale, things have definitely changed in the French Quarter.

Zap2it spoke with Elijah Mikaelson himself — Daniel Gillies — about what the new season brings in terms of danger for the family and the continuing tentions between Elijah and Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Plus, what are the odds that the eldest Mikaelson brother could find love with Hayley, the mother of his niece?

Daniel Gillies: When he told everybody to come out to New Orleans at the beginning of the show, he had such hopes and dreams and aspirations. Those have sort of been rocked and shattered due to a variety of cataclysms that have been thrown at them from every single angle.
