It’s been exactly one week since Elijah’s fatal encounter with The Hollow on The Originals, but we hope you haven’t spent that time shedding any tears over the Big Easy’s best-dressed bloodsucker.
“How many deaths has Elijah had?” actor Daniel Gillies asks TVLine. “I haven’t got the count, but I think a few fans do. At this point, we’ve kind of cried wolf.”
But even though Elijah isn’t permanently dead — his spirit is currently chilling in Freya’s pendant — that doesn’t mean Gillies put any less effort into his character’s latest demise.
“It’s different every time,” he admits. “It depends on what weapon you’re being murdered with, if you want it slow or fast, and how exhausted you are on set that day. … I’m joking about that last one, of course. It’s contingent on so many little factors. I never want to die exactly the same way twice, even though a couple of the deaths I’ve had might have been similar.”
