Is Charles Michael Davis' Marcel on 'The Originals' Corrupt By Power?

Is Charles Michael Davis' Marcel on 'The Originals' Corrupt By Power?

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.

This Klaroline Moment Might Hint About Klaus' Future on 'The Originals'

This Klaroline Moment Might Hint About Klaus' Future on 'The Originals'

Klaus did a big thing for Caroline in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries…and it might just hint about his and their future on The Originals.

Speaking with MTV, Joseph Morgan gave us so many questions about that moment that we’d love to have answered right now.

“Does [the letter] mean he’s safe? Because he’s obviously written the letter some time in the future, so does that mean he survives the whole season?” he asked.

“Or is he writing it at some point in Season 4? The more you open that Pandora’s box, the harder it is to close it,” Joseph said.

All his questions about this make us wonder about it all.

IS this in season four, or season five, or even years beyond? And the most important one — why aren’t they together yet in that moment?

Guess, we’ll have to wait and see…we mean, Caroline Forbes is rumored to be coming to New Orleans sometime. Right?

Hope Will Be a Major Player in 'The Originals' Season Four

Hope Will Be a Major Player in 'The Originals' Season Four

Summer Fontana is going to be a major, major part of The Originals new season.

The young actress stars as the older Hope, who’s been on the run with her mom Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) for the past five years.

“Hope does play a major part in the season and there is something out there that is coming that is very dangerous and very deadly,” executive producer Michael Narducci told EW about her story.

He adds, “We wanted this season to feel, more so than seasons in the past, like a proper New Orleans ghost story, and that is a big part of it.”

So, what will Hope and dad Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) first meet actually be like?

“She’s a person who can ask questions and have a perspective. She barely remembers him and, over the course of the five years they’ve been apart, he’s almost become this mythical figure in her mind, so what does a 7-year-old kid think of Klaus Mikaelson, who we in the writers’ room refer to as the Genghis Khan of vampires?”

He questions, “Is she afraid of him? Is she amused by him? Does she know that he will always protect her? That is going to be a big part of Klaus’ headspace — coming to terms with this new person in his life. We know family is more important than anything for him, and now he’s got a new family member who he’s interacting with this season and that’s a great joy to see.”

The Originals premieres TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Joseph Morgan Can't Wait For Fans To See Klaus & Hope in New Season of 'The Originals'

Joseph Morgan Can't Wait For Fans To See Klaus & Hope in New Season of 'The Originals'

Klaus Mikaelson is many, many things, but the one thing that Joseph Morgan hopes fans get really excited about this season is his relationship with daughter Hope.

“That’s been the most exciting part of the season for me, the most fun for me to play,” he revealed in a new interview. “The idea of this character meeting his daughter really for the first time, since she’s a speaking, thinking person now as opposed to a baby.”

Hope will be played by cutie Summer Fontana in the new season, which kicks off tomorrow.

Another thing that Joseph knows fans will love? “The introduction of the evil force, the Big Bad of the whole season, which happens in Episode 4, which is going to set the tone of the season.”

He added, “The last two minutes of Episode 4 are incredibly exciting. It’ll be interesting to see what people think after so much time away.”

'Originals' Star Joseph Morgan Joins X-Men TV Series 'Gifted'

Woah, Joseph Morgan just got a new job!

The Originals star, who plays Klaus Mikaelson on the CW show, was pictured at Gifted‘s first table read on Friday (March 10).

X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner shared the news on her Twitter with a pic of the cast, which also includes Blair Redford, Jamie Chung and Natalie Alyn Lind.

This doesn’t mean that Joseph is actually leaving The Originals though, as we have no idea what his role is on Gifted anyhow.


It could very well be just a guest spot…either way, we can’t wait to find out more about it!

'Vampire Diaries' Characters Could Appear on 'The Originals' Post-Finale

'Vampire Diaries' Characters Could Appear on 'The Originals' Post-Finale

If you’re super bummed about The Vampire Diaries ending, we have a little good news to ease your pain.

We recently chatted with executive producer Julie Plec and it sounds like it’s entirely possible that some of our favorite Mystic Falls residents could head to the French Quarter on The Originals.

“Definitely,” Julie told us. “Matt Davis shows up in episode 8 of this season of The Originals, which starts airing next Friday. And then if we’re lucky enough to do season five, then I think the door is wide open for the appearances of anybody.”

We’ve already seen several of the characters visit New Orleans, but it would be really interesting to see them there after TVD has ended.

TELL JJJ: Who do you want to see show up on The Originals?

In case you missed it, read our entire interview with Julie now!
