Here is a snippet of the interview Daniel Gillies gave TV Fanatic about The Originals and what to expect tomorrow night.
“One of Elijah’s most magical qualities is that, beneath this sometimes ruthless exterior, he’s still enchanted by life. He’s still excited after all this time and Hayley’s baby, it represents a new hope. He’s seduced by her vulnerability.”
Gillies, of course, is a series regular on The Originals, following many years in which his character only showed up sporadically in Mystic Falls (though Elijah’s presence was always felt, the actor believes, “like Obi-Wan Kenobi… from the good Star Wars moves, the first three”).
