He is making his directorial debut with episode 7, which will likely air in late April/early May.
“I’ve been shadowing since Season 2. The experience was good. It was very involving,” Charles told Collider.com. “I used to play Poker, and it’s like any game that you play where you just don’t want to get up and leave the table because you’re so involved.”
He added, “It was great directing the cast members and to really see, from the other side of the camera, how they operate, what really works to serve the story, and how they bring that to the table, in their different styles. It was a really, really, really great experience.”
JJJ was actually on set back in season three and ran into Charles shadowing a director on set of Containment at the time. We can’t wait to see all his hard work play out on screen!
The Originals airs Fridays @ 8PM on The CW.
