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?

Oh my God.....A black man on TVD in a major role that won't die after 2 episodes. Never thought Plec had it in her!

First Connor , now Marcel. Glad to see Julie showing the Brothers some love. Lets hope his character sticks around.

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

Rebekah: I know you hate me, but what's done is done.
Klaus: What's done is never done. It remains within us, the story we tell ourselves so we know who we are. A vicious father, a bastard son, and the sister who betrayed him. Perhaps it's time for a new story.
