For more than 30 years, PaleyFest has held panel sessions and screenings that connect the worldwide community of television fans with the casts and creators of their favorite TV shows. One of the evenings was to celebrate the popular CW series The Originals, which has already been picked up for Season 2. Collider was there to catch up with the cast and creative team, and we’ve compiled highlights from both the red carpet and panel.
During the evening, executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci, as well as actors Joseph Morgan (“Klaus Mikaelson”), Daniel Gillies (“Elijah Mikaelson”), Claire Holt (“Rebekah Mikaelson”), Phoebe Tonkin (“Hayley”) and Danielle Campbell (“Davina”), talked about how the actors find out they’re going to get killed off, what’s to come for their characters, how the show is creeping towards the redemption of Klaus and the undoing of Elijah, what led to Rebekah’s hopefully temporary exit, whether the biggest challenge for Elijah will be trying to keep peace with his family or trying to keep peace with the supernatural community, why fans love the Elijah-Hayley relationship, possible cross-overs with The Vampire Diaries, what things are like for Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) in exile, and what fans can expect from the finale. Check out what they had to say after the jump.
