Don’t underestimate this handsome devil — The Originals Marcel has a lot of power.
“Let me put it to you this way – there’s no supernatural demon that is resting inside Marcel and corrupting and making him lose his mind,” showrunner Michael Narducci recently shared about Charles Michael Davis‘ character in season four.
He adds that his story arc this season is “not an addiction metaphor; it’s not a possession metaphor. Marcel is the same Marcel he has always been, for better or for worse.”
“He is, for all intents and purposes, as strong and as lethal and as dangerous, and as immortal and indestructible as any of the other characters in this series because of what happened to him at the end of last season,” Michael says. “So then, the question becomes, is he corrupted by having that power? Is he going to become arrogant? Is he going to exercise compassion? That’s the journey that I’m interested in exploring as Marcel.”
Tune in to tonight’s new episode called “No Quarter” @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
