The Originals’ Charles Michael Davis on Marcel’s New Crew, Future With Cami

No Comments

[Cami and Marcel] are both doing the responsible thing, given the state of New Orleans right now,” Charles Michael Davis tells TVLine of the twosome who appeared hot and heavy just three weeks ago. “Cami represents the human faction and Marcel is in charge of the vampires. It’s probably not the best time to start a relationship. We both just need a little time.”

Below, Davis discusses Marcel’s future in the Big Easy, including which of his new trainees will challenge him the most, and what we’ll learn about him via flashbacks.

 

 

TVLINE | If not Cami, who will Marcel be spending the bulk of his time with this season?
He floats around a little bit. He’ll be spending the bulk of his time with Elijah and Hayley. He also has Gia and Josh. It’s kind of nice, he has some time to rebuild.

TVLINE | Let’s talk about Gia a little bit. She seems like a little troublemaker.
He realizes she’s looking for something to fight for. He’s just like, “Bring me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” [Editor's note: Marcel is a plagiarizer.] They’re all a little damaged, they all want a better life and they’re all searching for something — whether they’re conscious of that or not. Gia has her heart in the right place, but she still needs to get her legs under her. Marcel and Elijah will be mentoring her and explaining things to her.

TVLINE | So much new information is introduced through flashbacks. Will we learn anything else from young(er) Marcel this season?
We’re going to learn a lot more about Marcel, actually. I just got some later scripts, and all the writers have been talking about this one flashback episode for weeks. We’ll get to see Marcel become a leader and step up, which is all part of his bigger journey. He’s in another transition period right now, so we’re going to look back and see what he did earlier in his life when he was looking for something bigger than himself.

TVLINE | This week is also the big Esther dinner. Why wasn’t Marcel invited?
Oh, it’s strict family-only.

TVLINE | I mean, he’s practically family.
He is, but he’s like that best friend that comes over for dinner. Then when the parents get angry and things get heated, they’re just like, “Marcel, go home!” And he’s like, “OK, bye, see you guys tomorrow.”

TVLINE | Just like, “Bye, Mr. and Mrs. Mikaelson.”
[Laughs] Yes! “Hope you feel better.”

TVLINE | That said, is Marcel still going to find himself tangled in their family drama?
That’s always his dilemma — being a part of the family, but not being a part of it. How does that define him? They’re all very damaged, and as we saw from last week’s flashback, they almost submit Marcel to some trauma. So is he going to get used to it and want to stick around, or is he going to set himself apart and have is own identity outside of it?

The Originals Spoilers: Tatia’s Beautifully Tragic Story, Plus Bonus Klaroline Scoop

No Comments

The Vampire Diaries first introduced Tatia in season 3 as the original Petrova doppelgänger that both Klaus and Elijah fell in love with and now it’s time to get the whole backstory. Nina Dobrev, Joseph Morgan and EP Micheal Narducci dish on Tatia’s upcoming debut on The Originals. Nina Dobrev will appear as Tatia in episode 5 in a flashback to the time of the Vikings.

 

Nina Dobrev got to be in scenes with both of our leads, both Daniel Gillies and Joseph Morgan, Narducci said. We tell a story that will make you understand her fate, what happened to her, her relationship with both brothers and why what happened between her and the two brothers is so beautiful but also tragic.

You’re going to get insight into Klaus and Esther’s relationship, but also Elijah and Esther’s relationship and what happened back then, Joseph Morgan spoiled. We’re grateful for Nina coming over… so we could tell that story because I think it needed to be told and it definitely informed who the brothers are today.

Nina Dobrev had this to reveal about her new doppel-licious character, I feel like she’s the purest of them all because she is the original original doppelganger. She doesn’t have anyone that proceeded her that affects her life and that she has to live up to or whose history will haunt her in the future, so she has no preconceived notions. She doesn’t have all the vampire drama before her existence, so she’s just pure love and hope and innocence in a way … until things get complicated, as they always do.

Bonus Klaroline Scoop: 

It doesn’t feel like there’s an easy way to make people drop what they’re doing in Mystic Falls and come to New Orleans, he spoiled. And certainly, once our storylines get rolling, it’s going to be very obvious that it will to be very impossible for our characters to take a vacation and go to Mystic Falls, but we are always looking, if it makes sense for story, to honor the fact that this is a shared universe.

You’ll also see pretty quickly that Klaus is going to have his hands full with the return of [his family] in his life and if anything, the last thing he would want is to involve someone else in that. There’s a lot of dirty family business to deal with first.
