Joseph Morgan: 'The Originals' is Edgier Than 'Vampire Diaries'

Joseph Morgan: 'The Originals' is Edgier Than 'Vampire Diaries'

Joseph Morgan keeps it dapper in a tux for his feature in the October 2013 issue of Bello magazine.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Originals star shared with the mag:

On researching for the role: “I’ve always been fascinated with the genre. I had somewhat of a knowledge of vampire mythology before going into the show. I watched a lot of films, read a lot of books, and you know, just kind of immersed myself in it, so in many ways it was a dream job going into this. I just had to familiarize myself with the particular mythology of Mystic Falls.”

On how he started as just a guest star: “I came into The Vampire Diaries in someone else’s body (Alaric), and then I was contracted to do more episodes as a guest star at the end of the second season, with the potential to become a regular. I knew if I really messed I up, they’d cover themselves because Klaus could just come into some other actor’s body. But luckily they seemed to like what I was doing.”

On how the show differs from The Vampire Diaries: “They’ve taken my favorite elements of The Vampire Diaries and made a new show with them. And I’ve always loved working with Claire [Holt] and Daniel [Gillies]. There’s an older, darker, edgier side to The Originals. I’m looking forward to playing how Klaus deals with impending fatherhood.”

    He is an amazing actor! I kind of miss the originals in tvd, but at the same time it has made tvd stronger because its less confusing haha. If I had time to watch the originals too, I definitely would. Klaus was one of my fav TVD characters!
