On getting the role of Klaus: “I was lucky that around the time I decided I wanted to be involved in television this great role came up in TVD. I got a tremendous amount of support from the fans who shared my passion for the genre. It was really them that started to entertain the idea of a spin off by making trailers on YouTube for The Originals. Neither the producers nor myself had communicated our shared desire to make this show so I think I have the fans to thank for forcing the issue.”
On his inspiration: “My wife is a great inspiration to me as well as a tremendous source of support. We constantly bounce ideas back and forth. I read a lot, I enjoy art, music, films, comics, video games and travel. I write and paint and am a campfire guitarist. I gain inspiration from learning about others and from that I learn about myself. I try to experience as much as I can so I can draw from it. I’m curious. Inspiration can be found everywhere if you open yourself to it.”
On something fans may not know: “Years ago, my brother and I were in a band together called the Long Men. My brother is a very talented musician, he sings and plays the guitar.”
