Daniel Gillies on The Originals, Elijah: He's Ready for War

at . Comments

When we last saw Elijah on The Originals Season 1, he was getting treaty signatures from a witch, a vampire, a werewolf and a human.

So... all will be fine, dandy and peaceful in the French Quarter moving forward, right?

Wrong, Daniel Gillies told me at PaleyFest last weekend.

In an exclusive chat on the red carpet, the beloved actor said Elijah is not operating under any illusions: he doesn't expect the various factions in New Orleans to actually abide by their new agreement and that this Mikaelson brother is "ready for war."

He's also ready to butt heads again and again with Klaus. Check out the interview now and start the countdown for The Originals Season 1 Episode 18

It airs on April 15.

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
