Daniel Gillies Set to Join TVD Spinoff “The Originals”


tvd-elijah-012712The recently announced “Vampire Diaries” spinoff, “The Originals,” would not be complete without one of our favorite original vampires, Elijah!

Daniel Gillies has signed on to the backdoor pilot and potential spinoff of the hit series focused on Klaus and the original vampires. He will join Joseph Morgan and Phoebe Tonkin for the show.

The pilot will air as the April 25 episode of “The Vampire Diaries” and the show will center on the Original family of vampires, as Klaus (Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel. Elijah (Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.

Who else would you love to see come back for the spinoff?
