Daniel Gillies’ handsome mug addresses fans in a brand-new interview, promising more Original hotness this fall.

Regardless of whether you consider yourself to be Team Damon or Team Stefan, I’m pretty sure we’re all Team Elijah. In this new video, just released by The CW, Daniel Gillies talks about playing The Vampire Diaries‘ best-groomed Original — and what fans can look forward to as we edge closer to the Oct. 11 season premiere.

“Elijah will definitely be back,” Daniel says. “I think as long as there are vampires on this show, I think Elijah will be back. With four deaths under my belt, I think I’m pretty much bulletproof at this point.”

So what could Elijah have in store for us next season? Knowing this show, it could be anything! I even chatted with Daniel back in May 2011 about a potential coupling of Elijah and Elena (Nina Dobrev) — and now that she’s a vampire, that’s more of a possibility than ever. Here’s what he said about their chemistry at the time:

“It’s dangerous, but I think there’s something intoxicating about the combination of Elena’s purity and Elijah’s ancient resonance. … She represents something magnificent to him, something he doesn’t see very often in people. The fans are right; there’s a resistance and a purity, and the sexual tension becomes pyre between them. Perhaps people think Elena looks safe around him. It’s the same reason people want to see her with Damon, but it’s on a different level, because Elijah’s got an older spirit.”

Watch Daniel’s interview below, then drop me a comment with your hopes for season four:
