Whew, What a busy day. Videos upon videos of our favorite actors and actresses from The Vampire Diaries and here’s another one. Joseph Morgan talks about his character Klaus and that he may reclaim his humanity.
“Well, you know, you open up the cover page of season 3, episode 1, and it’s, like, the first half a page, Damon’s already naked. So I’d spent almost two days on set completely naked, which is kinda awesome, because as if I wasn’t close enough to our crew members, I feel really close after that,” he laughs. “So our first AD Rudy, at like 8 o’clock in the morning, came up to me and says, ‘Hey listen, I have an idea.’ When Rudy has an idea, it’s usually pretty good. It was that I should go to the prop master, another genius part of our show, and have them make some elephant ears. The first thing we see is Nina’s reaction, so what if I was completely naked and we had elephant ears and double-stick tape, and I put them on each of my thighs, and ultimately, she would be staring at a very small, young elephant. The reaction that we got was f—ing amazing. I hope and pray that that is what we used in the edit because it was such a natural ‘Ohmygod!’ reaction.”
• That situation will also obviously complicate Bonnie’s relationship with Jeremy. But Bonnie will have more to worry about as the season progresses. “We’re digging into the history of the Original family as we get deeper into the season and, of course, there was a witch who put that curse on Klaus in the first place, and [she] was a very powerful foe back in the beginning of the Originals’ time. We’re even going as far as to call her the Original Witch, just as a label to put on her. Bonnie will be part of helping us unravel that whole story,” Plec says.
Xfinity has more information on what to expect this season:
Elijah Will Return: Speaking of Elijah, the calculating, cerebral Original ended last season in a state of suspended animation with the white-ash covered dagger in his chest. According to Gillies, it will not be too long before he is resurrected. “You can’t keep the guy in that box forever.”
Klaus Is A Complicated Big Bad: Klaus, the seemingly omnipotent vampire-werewolf hybrid will have his fangs and claws all over this season. His partnership with Stefan becomes more than just a power play. “[Stefan] learns some things that make him see Klaus in a different light,” reveals Wesley. Their relationship does not disturb Elijah in the least, says Gillies. “Frankly, he can have Klaus. That’s a terrible brother. I’d rather work solo and not have that as my mentor. That’s like having Charles Manson as your nursery school teacher.” However he acknowledges that it is possible for the two Originals to reconcile. “If he recovered the family and returned them to Elijah. And if he left Elena (Nina Dobrev) alone.”
