Daniel GilliesAccording to Deadline, Daniel Gillies is set as one of three leads on the potential spinoff The Originals.

Another Vampire Diaries standout is headed to the potential spinoff series. Daniel Gillies is set to star opposite Joseph Morgan and Phoebe Tonkin in The Originals, which will be introduced as an upcoming episode of Vampire Diaries that will air April 25, serving as a potential backdoor pilot. All three are reprising their roles from the original series as the spinoff is keeping the three-lead — two vampire brothers and a girl — formula of Vampire Diaries. The only difference is that the female lead, Hayley (Tonkin), is not an ordinary teenager like Vampire Diaries‘ Elena but a werewolf.


Update: Give Me My Remote has confirmed the casting with Warner Bros.

    Please remember not to post videos unless it’s something like a clip being used to reference a particular scene. Off topic videos and other off topic comments may be deleted, because we’ve been getting feedback that they are making the site very difficult for fans to use. Thanks!

    LOL! Of course you will…but I wasn’t trying to kill you, just wanted to make you happy by sharing these little highlights with you…you said yourself that you can’t get enough of Elijah, but if they kill you, better not send you too many ;)

    So funny, I thought about posting a comment yesterday explaining that I am not a hairdresser and do not really know where my sudden fixation came from :). It has abated now. In fact I have a completely different job which is more like yours (you’re a teacher, right?).

  • a_softsong

    Thank you.  I did enjoy the videos.  

  • Wendy

    Yes, that is a good one.  I did see a recent pic of him where he is holding up his finger (shhhhhh)…that one was HOT!  It’s on either google or bing images if you want to add to your collection!

  • a_softsong

    You know me so well.  LOL

  • darkdimension

    Excellent. There is a few of us around here from the blessed teaching profession. One of my colleagues is actually retraining as a barber right now, as she wants a job you don’t have to take home with you… So there’s a thought. Imagine cutting Elijah’s hair. He really does have nice hair, especially in Season 2.

  • Sam Sebastian

    I hate Klaus’ character…. So I thought… “The Originals” will take Klaus away from The Vampire Diaries and enjoy it as much as I used to… I love Elijah on the other hand. So yeah, if Elijah is in The Originals, then I’ll put up with Klaus. Elijah FTW! 

  • Infidelz

    This is fantastic news!  I will definitely watch now.  Wasn’t sure until they confirmed DG/Elijah will be a regular.  Yay!!!!  Now, it just needs to be more grown-up than TVD.  Please, no high school, no love triangle drama, please.  : )  Just badass vampires.  

  • Infidelz

    If you hate Klaus so much and want him dead and gone, then why would you want cross-over episodes?  lol

  • Infidelz

    The problem is, Elijah is an amazing character and is WAY underutilized on TVD. His fans are restless (and tbh, extremely unhappy). He’s too good of a character to waste.  And some people are actually really excited that the Originals will be getting their own show (completely deserved and earned) where they can shine.  Also hoping it is a bit more adult oriented.  So sick of TVD being stuck in high school.  

    Don’t even ned to stress how sick we are of the constant “must kill an Original” threat.  

  • Infidelz

    You guys!  A great uncle?1  You’re acting like he’s 70 years old.  DG is maybe two years older than Ian.  lol

    Honestly, I would have loved to see Elena leave the brothers in favor of Elijah.  He brings out the best in her.

  • Infidelz

    I understand what y’all are saying, but I also understand Kiki’s statement.  It’s a little much wading through all the Damon/Elena/Stefan comments to find some good old fashioned Elijah squeeing.  :)

    Also, I’m a little torn about any cross-over between the two shows.  Mostly, I don’t want to see any of the Mystic Falls gang on The Originals.  I don’t want them taking up ANY time – they get enough screentime on TVD (especially the main three).  But it might be a good strategy to milk ratings.  

    There is an Originals Forum for those interested.  If we can still PM, PM me.

  • Infidelz

    This really should have happened.  Would have given a nice break to the never-ending-triangle.

  • Infidelz

    Kat is not good enough for Elijah.  Elena used to be worthy, but after Finn’s killing, and all of season 4, I don’t think so anymore.
