"The Originals" star Daniel Gillies recently chatted with Fashion & Style balancing his career and being a father and a good husband to his wife. Check out our exclusive interview with this handsome, talented actor!

As a father and an actor, do you find it difficult to strike a balance between work and family life?

The short answer is yes, although I know that I am extraordinarily privileged to do what I do and that I am able to earn a decent living as an actor.

I am also grateful for all the love and gratification that I receive for "The Originals" because I know that kind of support for a television show is very rare.

The only downside to being both an actor and a father is the merciless scheduling and the distance from home.

Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook Really Put a Lot of Thought into Their Son’s Name. Via 'People'.


Nobody can accuse Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook of rushing into a name for their son.

The Originals actor, 39, said it took days after their son was born on April 4 to settle on the perfect name for their progeny: Theodore Vigo Sullivan Gillies.

“We just couldn’t settle on a name because it’s such an important decision,” the actor tells PEOPLE, explaining that he went with nicknames including “sweetheart,” “raisin” and even “calcified alien” in the interim.

The couple had it narrowed down to two names before birth — after compiling individual lists that included upwards of 700 names to start, then creating a sort of “Venn diagram” to see which names overlapped between them, before coming up with their top choices.

He was born on the fourth of the fourth, and I said, ‘Let’s give him four names. Four seems to be his number.
— Daniel Gillies

Congratulations to Rachael and Daniel on their new baby boy!

Rachael has announced the arrival of 'Theodore Vigo Sullivan Gillies' on Twitter.  Born at 5am in Los Angeles on April the 4th and weighing in at 8 pounds, 14 ounces and measuring 20.5 inches. 

Huge congratulations and love to Rachael, Daniel and big sister Charlotte!
