On how he got interested:
“I met this little boy who just broke my heart because I could see there was a fragility in the child,” he explains. “We had to be careful playing with him and he had to wear a crash-helmet. He’s an adorable boy. Of course, naturally I inquired about his health and condition, just to learn about the disease.”
And on the Vampire Diaries front, Daniel confirms whether or not he’ll be back for this week’s finale, about which he says:
“[The episode is] just going to rock the foundation of the fandom. It’s stunning what the writers have done. I love what Julie Plec has done. I’m as eager as the fans to see how it evolves. It’s deeply tragic. You can expect some tragedy. That’s all I can really say. Whatever’s happening with this group of people is about to be changed forever.”
