Joseph Morgan has become a bit of a fans favourite since appearing in The Vampire Diaries as Klaus, so it is no real surprise that he has been given a spin-off show, which is titled The Originals. Joseph has been talking about the spin-off, revealing his hopes for the series.
Morgan was chatting to Entertainment Weekly about the spin-off, when he explained, "It would be nice, if we were picked up or even possibly during the pilot, to see a little bit of Klaus as the underdog, the one we’re rooting for."
Joseph added, "I’m terrified I’m gonna say something I’m not supposed to but there’s some huge, huge transitions and some reveals that will change the character forever…. We’re gonna see some tremendous moments of vulnerability, but he is so, I wanna swear, badass. We’re gonna see him cooler than he’s ever been before."
The Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals is set to begin filming next month and, as well as starring Joseph Morgan, we will also see the familiar faces of Daniel Gillies and Claire Holt, while Charles Michael Davis will also join the show. The Originals premiere will initially serve as an episode of The Vampire Diaries, which will air on The CW on April 25.
