The Vampire Diaries Fan Favorite Daniel Gillies Dishes on the Originals, Elijah & Elena and More!


The accent. The hair. The honor. The inability to stay dead.

These are just a few of our favorite things about The Vampire Diaries' Original vampire Elijah, he who is so masterfully played by Daniel Gillies. Seriously, he turned a character who was meant to be the standard three-episode villain into one of the series' most beloved characters, with fans promising to boycott the show should he be killed yet again. (That would be death No. 5 on the show, thankyouverymuch!)

We caught up with Mr. Gillies in the E! News studio to discuss tonight's episode, his fate on the show, the possibility of an Elijah and Elena (Nina Dobrev) hookup, his infamous hair and so much more!
