Charles Michael Davis to Star as The Originals' Klaus Protege

at . Comments

Charles Michael Davis has landed a key role on the CW's The Originals.

Davis will play Marcel, the diabolical former protege of Klaus (Joseph Morgan), in The Vampire Diaries spinoff, which will be introduced in the April 25 episode of the series titled "The Originals."

The spinoff centers around the Original family from The Vampire Diaries, with Klaus returning to his former home in the French Quarter of New Orleans and reuniting with Marcel.

Marcel is described as a "fierce and bold" modern-day vampire who's "able to accomplish as much with his charm as he is with his strength," making him a compelling right-hand man (or adversary).

Klaus' brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, will reportedly side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.

Like Klaus and Elijah, werewolf Haley (Phoebe Tonkin) will also migrate from TVD to the new series, while Daniella Pineda was recently cast as a new series regular along with Davis.

Davis, whose casting was first reported by Deadline, will also appear on Grey’s Anatomy and The Client List this spring, and has previously appeared on Switched At Birth.

What do you think? Excited to meet Marcel on The Originals?

The Originals Quotes

They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.

Klaus

My dearest Hope, I do not know how this will find you. As a child full of wonder, a teenager full of opinions, or a woman with the world at her feet. I write to tell you that I love and to explain that in our family's darkest hour I was called upon to save my siblings, so I did. Please do not mourn me. Whatever pain I endure I do so in service of those I love. My sole regret is that I will be away from you. Be good to your mother. I draw comfort knowing that she will protect you, and I know she will not rest until our family is united. Until then, my sacrifice will allow you to grow. To become a beautiful daughter I can now only imagine. Please remember that you are the legacy this family has always desired. The promise we fought to protect. You are and always will be our hope.

Klaus
