Daniel Gillies Interview

‘The Originals’ Daniel Gillies: Elijah won’t be able to cage Klaus’ fury

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.

The Originals: Hilarious 'Mom' Tips

By Entertainment Weekly

After more than a thousand years of existence, the Mikalesons are prepared for just about anything … other than parenthood. Let’s be real: Their parents weren’t exactly the type of people you’d want them to emulate. And yet, thanks to a one-night stand between Klaus and Hayley, they’ve found themselves smack in the middle of raising a child. Thankfully, Hayley’s there to help, but even she didn’t grow up with the best parental figures in her life. In other words, we’re lucky Hope is so resilient.
