An all-time TV Fanatic favorite celebrates his birthday today.
Yes, Daniel Gillies is now 38 years old!
The actor sky-rocketed to fame as Elijah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries, making such an impression on viewers (and producer Julie Plec) that an entire storyline was built around his family and he was eventually turned into a series regular on The Originals.
Simply out, we adore him at TV Fanatic and this interview helps explain why.
Send in your best wishes to the actor now and prepare to vamp out over these 34 photos:
