35 year old actor Daniel Gillies has revealed how his character Elijah is in love with Elena (Nina Dobrev) in the hit The CW vampire series, The Vampire Diaries. Daniel admitted that everybody in The Vampire Diaries seems to fall for Elena at some point or another and that he hoped that Elijah would manage to express his feelings for her before it is too late.
Gillies explained, "I know it's a little obvious in the world of Vampire Diaries, where everyone falls in love with Elena, but I agree that Elijah sees something beautiful in her. I would love for him to express that to her before he goes. I feel like Elijah would be most drawn to her because she's living a better life than people who've lived for centuries longer.
He added, "I think that's the sort of thing he's attracted to. Even it was just a moment, I'd love to see them share something - but I think it should be more." Daniel Gillies character Elijah recently made his return to The Vampire Diaries, after being resurrected by Damon (Ian Somerhalder). The Vampire Diaries airs on The CW on Thursdays at 8/7c.
