It’s no surprise that Joseph Morgan is in high demand for interviews right now, between the goings-on with Klaus on The Vampire Diaries and the upcoming spinoff The Originals, there are a lot of questions begging for answers. Fortunately, E!Online, Zap2it and TVLine are all on the case, we’ve gathered the interviews up in a group for your reading pleasure.
Morgan teases that fans can expect the spinoff to be “a little more adult, a little more kind of gothic because these are old time Vampires here.”
And finally, he says, “It’s just so tremendously exciting for me, I’m so eager to get started on it. I really can’t wait, and I really hope people like it. I’m going to put my whole heart and soul into it.”
Zap2it asked the actor about the situation between Klaus and Caroline after last week’s emotional episode.
“I think she was being genuine,” he says. “The way Candice played it, she was being genuine. I also think it’s more interesting if she was — it sort of adds a level of complexity to her character, rather than, ‘Oh, we’re playing another thing on Klaus.’ It’s more if it comes from a genuine place. As an actor and a character, I bought into it.”
TVLine wants to know if Klaus has any romance coming up. Joseph says yes, but declines to say who with. Speculations welcome in comments!
TVLINE: Will Klaus ever get lucky in love? He has to be the most celibate vampire in Mystic Falls.
[Joseph Morgan] Yeah, he’s going to get some action.
It’s almost Thursday! Here’s another peek from Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414).

It’s Vampire Diaries Bite time and this week TV Guide‘s listing off 5 Reasons Why Klaus Isn’t Any Worse Than Stefan or Damon:
Klaus is just really, really lonely Because his own parents viewed him as an abomination, Klaus never felt worthy of affection. That’s why he isolates himself from those around him with violence and a false display of apathy — but that doesn’t mean Klaus is at all happy about it.
After Stefan insulted Klaus for keeping victims’ letters to memorialize them, the Original pointed out that Stefan wrote his victims’ names on walls. According to Klaus, this wasn’t a celebration of the deaths, but simply a “reminder that in the end, we’re left infinitely and utterly alone.”
Agree? Disagree? Head over to TV Guide to read the rest of their reasons and then check out the Bite below.
TVLine has some more from their talk with Julie Plec about the Salvatores, Klaus, Caroline & Tyler, and more coming up in the second half of season four. This passage about Klaus is intriguing:
“The beauty of Klaus, much like Damon, is that his horrible misdeeds are all born out of a place of a complete lack of trust and faith as a result of being repeatedly betrayed and rejected in his life. I’m not saying I excuse his horrific behavior, but it’s born from a very human place. Once someone’s got a strong core of humanity, there’s hope for them – [they may] just not necessarily wake up tomorrow as Man of the Year. Klaus will continue to be a very complicated character. Much like Damon in the first couple seasons, when he feels backed up against the wall, he lashes out in very, very destructive ways. It makes it impossible to forgive. And yet, the redemption of Klaus as a character-long arc is something we always talk about.”
