Interview by Zap2It
Though the holidays left the Mikaelsons close — and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) on the verge of happiness — that was never going to last. When last fans saw the final moments of the midseason finale of “The Originals,” Elijah (Daniel Gillies) was putting a dagger through Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) chest, while Klaus was waking up to find Cami’s (Leah Pipes) throat sliced open.
With all of that haunting them, the Mikaelsons are off to a tumultuous start to the new year and, according to Gillies, things are only going south from here. The actor spoke to Zap2it about the family’s struggles to retain their “kingdom,” Elijah trying to maintain some traces of his humanity and whether Klaus’ fury can be controlled after finding the love of his life dead.
