Vampire Diaries Star Daniel Gillies Reveals Where He's Headed, and the Elena Scene We Never Saw!

E!

As in life, there were pros and cons in last night episode of The Vampire Diaries. Pro: the Original siblings stopped their mother from killing them, ensuring Elijah's (Daniel Gillies) safety. Wheeee! Con: Elijah decided to leave Mystic Falls. Boo!

Luckily, fans of Mr. Gillies won't be without the well-coifed actor for long: Gillies' new show Saving Hope, a medical drama with a twist, has been picked up by NBC and he recently visited the E! News studio to tell us all about his new series. Spoiler Alert: he rides a lot of gurneys and has a boring Mc-label. (You know, like, Grey's Anatomy's McDreamy and McSteamy?)

Plus, he reveals his favorite TVD moment, which is one fans never got the chance to see, and reveals the secret to his friendship with co-star Joseph Morgan... 

It was the most beautiful piece of writing. I love scenes when they’re very, very simple.
