Charles Michael Davis to Star as The Originals' Klaus Protege

by 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?
