Joseph Morgan Talks About How He Felt After 'The Originals' Was All Wrapped

Joseph Morgan Talks About How He Felt After 'The Originals' Was All Wrapped

We still have a handful of episodes to before we have to say goodbye to The Originals, but for Joseph Morgan, it’s been over for a while.

Speaking with US Weekly, the actor opened up about the emotions he felt when the last scene was wrapped.

“We did one day in New Orleans at the very end and we did a couple of scenes and at the end it was wrapped. We did little speeches and hugs about stuff. It was pretty emotional and then everybody packed up and left,” Joseph recalls.

He adds, “I remember sort of standing there feeling like everyone’s gone. I’m just kind of standing in New Orleans unemployed and alone. I had friends and my wife was with me as well, thank goodness. And some of the cast were with me as well, but you feel like wow. That’s it, it’s done. It’s a joy and a sadness at once, is the only way I can describe it. It’s a plethora of feelings.”

Was there anything in particular he took from the set? You bet!

“The henleys. As many henleys as I could carry,” Joseph jokes. “I sort of took a last look at my dressing room that I’ve been in for five years and you think, ‘Is there anything else I can steal? No, I’ve got it all.’”

However, he did take the “name tag off the door. That’s probably worth something.”

The Originals airs Wednesdays on The CW.

Daniel Gillies & Joseph Morgan Preview Tonight's Elijah-Centric 'Originals' Episode

Daniel Gillies & Joseph Morgan Preview Tonight's Elijah-Centric 'Originals' Episode

Daniel Gillies takes center stage on The Originals tonight, in an Elijah Mikaelson-centric episode.

“He’s a very different being,” the actor recently told TVGuide about how Elijah is without his memories.

Daniel adds that “he’s lost a millennium of information, but he has all of this kind of vampiric muscle memory, in terms of his abilities and what not. He’s discovering who he is.”

Joseph Morgan, who will pop up in certain spots as Klaus, also directed the episode.

“I was excited by the writing itself and then the fact that it wasn’t jumping around between storylines,” he also told TVGuide. “It was just one through line, so it was a chance to really, really invest in the story that we’re telling.

“I felt sort of like I was making a prequel movie about Elijah. So that’s kind of the way we tackled it.”

Joseph continues, “What I wanted to do, because we were on a journey, is travel with Elijah a lot, so there’s a lot of moving shots with him, following him. There’s also a lot of that kind of that gritty, grimy feel of New York that I wanted, as opposed to the beauty of Manosque and the piano bar.”

The Originals airs TONIGHT, May 2nd @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Joseph Morgan & Danielle Rose Russell Talks Hope & Klaus' Reunion on 'The Originals' Tonight

Joseph Morgan & Danielle Rose Russell Talks Hope & Klaus' Reunion on 'The Originals' Tonight

Hope and Klaus are reunited tonight on The Originals – and it’s going to be an awkward reunion.

Both stars – Joseph Morgan and Danielle Rose Russell – opened up about the father/daughter dynamic between the two after having not seen each other for seven long years.

“There’s still some resentment there and a lot of sort of anger and upset there,” Joseph shared with TV Guide of the tense feelings. “She still feels certainly abandoned by her dad, and he feels this tremendous sense of guilt.”

He adds that Klaus “sort of covers for that by telling himself the lie that, ‘She’s better off without me.’ But it becomes quickly apparent that she is not, and she’s going down a path where he needs to step in and help and be a parent… It’s turbulent to say the least, their relationship.”

Danielle spoke with EW about the same situation, telling the glossy that the reunion is “a little emotional.”

“They really begin to navigate their new relationship for the first time in a very long time, and it’s really emotional to do that,” she adds. “If you hadn’t spoken to your father in seven or eight years, or since you were a young child and now you’re a teenager, you’ve changed a lot.”

“I think Hope really has come to terms with who Klaus is, so it’s a really interesting dynamic that this season will begin to explore.”

The Originals airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Joseph Morgan Previews Klaroline's Reunion on 'The Originals'

We have only a few more days until the premiere of The Originals – and Joseph Morgan is preparing us for the Klaroline reunion that we’ve all been waiting for.

“It’s not romantic, per se, but we definitely acknowledge the history that they have, and there is an attraction there; a chemistry and understanding between them,” the actor told TVLine in a new video interview about the former couple’s reunion.

Joseph adds, “Candice [King] has done a bunch of episodes and most of them are with me,” he says. “I don’t think she’s filming with anyone else (laughs).”

He also previews that the endgame might not be something all of us love.

“I feel very happy with how it all ends…I’m comfortable with where it ends,” Joseph says. “I don’t think there’s any way that could be satisfactory to everyone…some of you won’t be happy, but some of you will.”

The Originals premieres on Wednesday, April 18th on The CW.

The CW Debuts 'The Originals' Final Season Poster - See It Here!

The first poster for The Originals‘ final season is here!

Featuring brothers Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies), the tagline reads “Family. Always and Forever.”

Speaking with TVLine earlier this year, Daniel teased about what’s ahead for Elijah in the coming season, even though he had his memories wiped from him at the end of season four.

Elijah doesn’t take long “figure out he’s not a regular person.”

One of the upcoming episodes also centers just on Elijah and his new life.

“I think it’s one of the best episodes we’ve ever done,” Daniel adds. “I’m actually amazed that it made it through — it was such a change of pace from what we normally do.”

The Originals returns on Wednesday, April 18th on The CW.
