The battle lines between Klaus and Marcel have been drawn on ‘The Originals’ and actor Charles Michael Davis reveals what’s in store for Klaus’s former protégé!
With vampires, witches and werewolves all fighting for power on The Originals, the city of New Orleans is bound to combust. Actor Charles Michael Davis tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY where Marcel’s alliances will fall, whether a love triangle is in the works and his thoughts on a Vampire Diaries crossover! Read on for all the scoop!
Charles Michael Davis Talks ‘Originals’ Finale
Although Klaus (Joseph Morgan) gave Marcel a brief pardon on his exile from New Orleans for Father Kieran’s (Todd Stashwick) funeral, the animosity between the two former friends is still as high as ever. They may have a father-son relationship, but Marcel has declared war on the man who taught him everything he knows.
Tensions in New Orleans continue to rise, as all supernatural entities fight for power and Marcel is going to have to have a strategic game plan to come out on top. Charles tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that we are are going see Marcel “align with many different people and other characters” and “we are going to see a lot more with witches and werewolves that are really in the picture now.”
The April 22 episode did reveal that Marcel was the one who saved Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) from the people who killed her parents, so maybe he’ll form an alliance with the werewolves. (Klaus wouldn’t be too happy about that.)
Charles Michael Davis Teases Romance & Crossovers
After Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) departure, Marcel was left with a broken heart. Over the rest of the season, The Originals has the laid the foundation for a possible romance between Cami (Leah Pipes) and Marcel. Charles teases to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY whether Marcel’s close relationship with Cami could turn into a full-fledged romance and love triangle with Klaus, who fancies Cami.
“I think it is pretty strong,” Charles says of the chances of a Cami and Marcel romance. “Cami, as a character, really voices her opinion and makes Marcel really reflect on things and she has feelings for Marcel…I think this potential relationship between everyone is very viable.”
Charles also discussed the idea of an Originals and Vampire Diaries crossover! Both Klaus and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) started on The Vampire Diaries and there are tons of connections on both shows. However, Charles doesn’t necessarily think Marcel should be making a trip to Mystic Falls in the near future.
“I think it should happen later than sooner,” he says. “I really like those characters, but they are really developed and they have doppelgängers and people coming back from the dead… So to join that universe, I think we have to do a little more in our universe to do a crossover.”
