Daniel Gillies Confirmed for The Vampire Diaries Spinoff

at . Comments

In case you needed another reason to be excited for The Vampire Diaries spinoff...

Multiple sources confirm that fan favorite Daniel Gillies will reprise his beloved role of Elijah on both the April 25 backdoor pilot for The Originals AND the series itself, with Deadline reporting Gillies will be a regular cast member if the show is picked up for the fall.

Daniel Gillies as Elijah

The spinoff will find Klaus back in New Orleans and dealing with his diabolical protege, an uncast vampire named Marcel. Look for Elijah to side with Marcel's enemies in an attempt to keep Klaus in line and maybe even find redemption for his brother.

Phoebe Tonkin has also been confirmed for the series as Hayley, while The CW is casting for Camille, a human psychology student who will take an interest in Klaus as she tries to determine the basis for evil.

So... are now more excited for The Vampire Diaries spinoff? Will you watch it?

Yaayayayayayayayayay! Now I don't have to watch this crap of a show to see my favourite Original! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


SERIOUS: Can somebody with any kind of access to PLEC get in touch with the woman and tell her that "Hayley" + "Camille" are just horrible ideas? Please. Seriously. If she has a twitter feed or a blog or something that anybody knows about, because I don't think she actually has any kinda link to the audience she's supposed to be writing for, and apparently, no staff to tell her when she's coming up with a BAD idea.


Boy those dish trolls really wanna make me rip my eyes
Out of their sockets


Fuck The Originals spin off. Bring back The Secret Circle!


@HellyJelly Saving Hope will still be on in Canada. It is a shorter season with a different filming schedule then full season CW shows. There is only a few weeks filming overlap, the last few weeks of CW filming and the first few weeks for Saving Hope. At least that is how it was last year.


Good news !!, I was worried it was going to be the Klausshow.....


I could hardly care less about Hayley and CW's obvious obsession with Phoebe Tonkin (????) but I like Daniel Gilles. I also think that the Originals would suck without all the Originals. So, I guess Rebekah and Kol should come along as well. I am curious about how Daniel Gilles as regular cast will play out if the Originals get picked up for the fall considering that he is sort of regular on that less then stellar show called Saving Hope. Is that still on, by the way?


I can bear the thought of a new random character and I love Daniel Gilles but why Hayley? No one cares about her. It would make more sense to have Rebekah and Kol.


FINALLY some good news after all that Hayley-Camille-crap!!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
