In a recent interview with TV Line, Originals star, Charles Michael Davis, dished on whats coming up for Marcel.

marcel-the-battle-of-new-orleans

TV Fanatic: This week’s episode looks like a really good one for Marcel and for the viewers that have wanted to see more of his backstory a little bit.

Charles Michael Davis: There are some flashbacks in it which everyone loves.

TVF: How do the flashbacks link back to the present day, where there’s so much going on?

CMD: Everyone is trapped in the compound because the spell and they’re fighting off hunger. And they did a great job of crafting the story from World War I, which we always just kind of wanted to do [and] I was always wondering how they were going to put it together. And so we get to see the flashback when Marcel is fighting off hunger, it will take him back to World War I, and we’ll get to see how he was becoming a leader and sort of fighting off internal and external forces back then.

TVF: How would you say the Marcel we see in the flashbacks is different from the Marcel we’ve gotten to know in the present day?

CMD: I think his hair’s longer. [laughs] When I played it I wanted him to be a little bit more emotional, a little bit more raw, a little bit more to himself, I’m not quite concerned with what’s going on with everybody else…it’s like his growing teenage years.

You know, leaving home and branching out and finding who he is, as opposed to Marcel in present day in more of a mentor to the vampires, like Gia and Josh [and] pretty much the father figure to Davina so he already has responsibilities outside of himself, but in World War I he’s just dealing with himself. He has a different energy about him [and] a different way he kind of carries himself.

TVF: I feel that we’ve known he was in the war but will we see the decision making in that? I’m assuming it’s something he chose to do.

CMD: Yeah. And that’s something that we’ll find out and you’ll get to see in [The Originals Season 2 Episode 11]. Marcel deciding to go off to war and what it means with breaking the news to The Original family. But yeah, that was one of his decisions and I know we saw the return from war in Season 1. When he returns he has a warm welcoming, but anytime a parent has a kid that wants to go off to war, it’s sort of like, “Okay, well I respect your decision. Don’t take drugs. We’ll see you when you come back in the one or two years.”

TVF: Exactly. Don’t get killed, that sort of thing. How was it to shoot some of the World War I scenes with the combat?

CMD: Everyone was really excited about it. When we finally got on location, we had trenches built into the ground that were 6 or 7 deep down and we had mortars. It was kind of like in Tropic Thunder where you just want to blow things up and 15 mortars going off and we’re just walking through all these explosions. [The special effects advisor] gives a big speech beforehand for the safety meeting where he tells everybody, ‘whatever you do, don’t look at the explosions, you will go blind.’

TVF: Is it safe to say there was some serious choreography working around all those explosives?

CMD: We walk the path so that we wouldn’t get blown up. There was this great focus on set from everybody so things didn’t need to be said more than once or twice. We didn’t have to do any extra takes. We treated it like we were shooting a film. So everyone was really, really, really focused and came with like, defensive purpose. Even when we had to get our wardrobe dirty rather than have them dust us down, everyone was like, “No, it’s cool, I’ll roll around in the ground.” Like, ‘I’ll do what I need to do. We’ll make it real.’

TVF: Back to the present day, we saw Marcel getting a little bit busy with Cami in the beginning of the season but not much has happened since. Is there any romance heating up for him?

CMD: I think he’s taking a liking to Gia, so I don’t know if anything is quite romantic just yet but I think that he liked Gia from the start with how she was a warrior. And then as far as Cami goes, I think they’re obviously both a little preoccupied. You can’t even get out of the compound. There’s no making whoopee there. So there’ll be romance in the future maybe but not in the near future.

TVF: From what we saw last week, the vampires and werewolves are really starting to go at it with each other. Will that continue this week?

CMD: Yeah, for sure. Being trapped in there with time running down and also the hunger increasing, you build a lot of tension and so you’ll see that. So the whole episode will be filled with this sort of rising tension of everyone losing it on the inside and just wanting to eat Kol or Kaleb. Then you got the werewolves in there.

TVF: How did you feel challenged differently in this episode and moving forward?

CMD: This upcoming episode was a big turning point for me creatively about some things that I’ve kind of been sitting and wanting to do and so they became real and everything else has just been icing on the cake. It opens up more possibilities now, especially now, not dealing with the Rebekah storyline as much and also losing New Orleans to Klaus. It’s a rebuilding period. We have a third season so I’m pretty excited about that.

TVF: Looking ahead to later this season or even season three, what would be your hope for Marcel?

CMD: I’d like to see him build up to his inner circle again, to see him really become even more of a leader and see him patch up his relationship with Davina. I’d like to see him really go make a play again for New Orleans, like 100 percent, fully in. And then maybe if he got some super powers, I’m always game for that.

TVF: What super power would you like?

CMD: I don’t know, I mean, they already have mind control. I guess he doesn’t need claws like Wolverine. If he could shoot laser beams out of his eyes that would probably be helpful. But other than that, I don’t know. I guess he already is kind of a super hero.

TVF: I’m thinking like maybe we need to get you a guest spot on The Flash and get the laser beams shooting out of your eyes.

CMD: I guess that’s my new mission is to get a crossover on The Flash. I talked to Justin Baldoni about a crossover with Jane The Virgin. Use some of the guys that were in his proposal video, show up at the hotel, Marcel and Klaus are checking in, just randomly checking in and then that’s it, that’s the only scene.

ETonline sat down with TVD star Ian Solmerhalder and co-executive producer Caroline Dries at the TCA Winter Press Tour last week to get the scoop on what’s next for the star-crossed vampires as they navigate through their newest jaw-dropping obstacle: the awkward first date.

Home

Throughout the first half of Season 6, Damon and Elena have been forced to fight for their love. They’re not just getting their happy ending handed to them on a silver platter. And despite the agony, it’s creating a “worth the wait” type of scenario. This was an observation that 36-year-old-actor, Ian Somerhalder, wholeheartedly agreed with.

“Actually that’s a really awesome observation,” Somerhalder said. “They haven’t just been handed this. In the past we’ve fast-forwarded through a lot of the cool, gushy parts that you would typically see in a new love story, so I think that Damon being in this space of who he loves genuinely gives him a sense of purpose.”

“When an audience sees that sense of purpose in Damon, I think it makes them very happy. And I enjoy it as well,” he continued. “And I think that the one thing that [fans] can expect again, because it’s The Vampire Diaries, for every minute of screen time of happiness, you’re going to have five minutes of drama, f—ked up, and people trying to kill us.”

Fans were devastated at the end of the mid-season finale when Damon and Elena were this close to rekindling their romance — only to discover Kai’s wicked plan to steal a magically invisible Elena away from the Salvatore house.

“I knew the fans would hate that and I’m so happy that they did,” executive producer Caroline Dries said with a laugh. “I just remember when we thought of that, it was perfect — let’s just ruin everyone’s hopes and dreams and let’s add mistletoe to make it even worse.”

Calm down, Delena fans—don’t’ be grabbing those torches and pitchforks just yet! Dries promised that there’s a bigger plan in the works and the outcome will be worth this tortuous wait. “I always want to say [to the fans], ‘Trust me. We know what we’re doing. We know what we’re doing.'”

And what they’re doing is setting up a side of Damon and Elena’s relationship that viewers have never seen before: the adorable dating phase. “It’s more of that courting period of, ‘Do we go on a date?’ ‘Where would you want to go?’ the EP explained. “When you see Damon be a normal, human, twenty-whatever-year-old, it’s refreshing and fun, and what we don’t normally get to see.”

Dries teased that Delena fans should get ready to feel some “butterflies” as Elena attempts to re-fall in love with Damon. “As they re-connect — she’s been compelled to forget that she loved him —those feelings are still in her,” Dires said. “So it’s like what do we do? We don’t just jump into bed together. We’re going to be normal so, ‘Should we go out to dinner?’ It’s like the fun kind of boring stuff that you would never want to tell but now it’s interesting because we’ve never seen it before.”

Somerhalder spilled that he believes it’s “important” for the Damon and Elena fans to focus on the positive side of things. “That glimmer of hope usually turns into some really gnarly things but it’s a give-and-take,” he said. “I think that there’s some really great stuff coming up, some great Damon and Elena stuff.”

Bonus Scoop: For those fans who are wondering if Damon could have any deep-seeded romantic feelings for Bonnie, Dries was quick to shut that thought down. “I think it’s a deep profound friendship that he even doesn’t admit is a friendship,” she said. “I know there are a lot of eager Bamon fans out there, but for now no. His eyes are on Elena 100 percent.”

The Vampire Diaries returns to screens today and and second-time director Paul Wesley spoke with TV Line and promised three things: “dynamic” action, a major Forbes family moment and an “oh, s—t” final twist he’s, honestly, pretty proud of.

10352881_10153002946828334_5996697881120741996_n

TVLINE | What was the biggest change between your first time directing and this one?
People came up to me this time and said, “You’re so relaxed and calm.” I was really nervous my first time, and while I still had some jitters this time around, it was much easier. I knew what I wanted to do and I knew what everyone was capable of. You share your vision and you trust a lot of people; you can’t try to micro-manage everything. It’s really important for directors to let people do the jobs they’re good at, which is something I learned.

TVLINE | Which actor surprised you the most as a director this time?
It’s interesting to work with guest stars or recurring actors because they haven’t been on the show for six years, so they can surprise you. They make you go, “Oh! I didn’t expect you to say your line that way.” The series regulars, including myself, all have a cadence and a disposition that we’ve assigned to our characters. … Chris Wood is so good in my episode. He really is so great, the perfect blend of dark humor and true danger, just a really talented guy. Candice Accola and Marguerite MacIntyre also really nailed it in this episode. They’ve got some great stuff.

TVLINE | Is there a specific scene you’re excited for us to see?
There’s a scene at the end of the episode, the final sequence, and it really puts my episode on the map in terms of having an effect. It’s really effecting. I don’t want to reveal what happens, but it’s a scene that has a really interesting twist and leaves you going, “Oh, s—t!”

TVLINE | What would you say Stefan’s main focus is right now?
In a weird way, his main focus is Caroline. That’s sort of been his M.O. lately. She’s sort of a huge part of his life now as a friend. Stefan and Elena were so inseparable, bonded, etc., and Caroline and Stefan are now sort of the duo. Everything he does revolves around Caroline at this point.

TVLINE | You’ve always been a big supporter of Stefan and Caroline’s relationship. Why do you think they work well together?
Honestly, I’m just a fan of Stefan doing anything unexpected. I’m a fan of any character that does something people would find uncharacteristic of them, but not something arbitrary just for the sake of being arbitrary. Our characters are vampires, they’re hundreds of years old and I just think Stefan should remember that he’s an old soul who can do crazy things once in a while. The minute a character becomes predictable, it becomes a little boring.

TVLINE | Stefan’s fake proposal to Elena earlier this season was definitely unpredictable. Is the door still open for those two?
I’m telling you, all it takes is one shift in writing. All it takes is one intelligently shifted moment or new storyline to sort of diverge and — boom! — we’re back on the Stefan and Elena train. I have no idea what the writers are doing or planning on doing or if that’s something they’re even interested in, but I wouldn’t eliminate anything from the equation.

TVLINE | Lastly, how do you feel about losing Jeremy — and Steven R. McQueen as a series regular — next year?
It’s weird. We’ve gone through this before, but certainly not in Season 6. I love Steven. He’s such a sweet and nice and kind kid. Of course it’s sad, you know, but he’s a young actor, we’re in Season 6 and I’m excited to see what he does next.

Gonna Set Your Flag On Fire

In a recent interview with IGN, Originals star Phoebe Tonkin, discussed the show’s current storylines and her vampire/werewolf hybrid character Hayley’s role in the escalating conflict against the witches.

Question: You really blend genres on The Originals. One minute it’s an action show, one minute it’s kind of visceral horror, then romance; you’re getting to play a mother. Is that the excitement in not knowing what they’re going to throw at you next?

Phoebe Tonkin: Yeah. What’s so amazing and beautiful about our show is it really is these kind of ordinary characters — although they are supernatural characters — but they’re put in extreme situations. To have someone, whether they’re wolf or vampire or not, when you put in the idea of motherhood and family loyalty, it really kind of grounds those storylines and makes it really interesting to play against everything being hyped and big. They’re real feelings and they’re real things that they’re dealing with.

Question: When you start as an actor, you obviously never know where your career is going to go. Is it amusing for you that it has become a lot of not just genre material but physical stuff and characters who sometimes get in the mix in fight scenes?

Tonkin: I’m actually amazed because I’m like the least physical person. I don’t really do anything exercise wise, but I find myself in these jobs that I’m always really kind of testing my endurance and my strength. Maybe it’ll be nice next year to do something a little more low key, where the stakes aren’t as high and maybe a little romantic, independent comedy or something.

Question: Is there anything coming up where Hayley gets to really unleash?

Tonkin: Yeah, a lot. Right now, Hayley’s really trying to keep the wolves on her side and keep that alliance and kind of protect her home. Basically she’s kind of now realized that as a hybrid she has both the wolves and the vampires on her side. So she’s trying to use those allies and try to join their forces together so that she has an even stronger army behind her against the witches, who right now are the most serious threat to the original family and to the werewolves as well.

Question: How much do they tell you about what’s coming down the pipeline? It can get kind of convoluted. Are there times where you have to call Julie [Plec]?

Tonkin: You know, the writers are amazing on our show because they could probably write like an unofficial bible of the world of Vampire Diaries and The Originals. You can [go to] any of those writers and be like, “In that episode of Vampire Diaries five seasons ago when this happened… and now it’s sort of happening again,” and they know everything. They’re really, really helpful in that way. They don’t tell us a huge amount, but everyone is so passionate about that show and our writers and producers, they’re so excited to tell us when they know something is coming up. So they’ll kind of pull us aside and be like, “I just want to tell you that so and so is happening and don’t tell anyone because it’s really exciting.” So there’s little things, little comments but only because people are so excited about stuff that’s coming up and us as actors as well are always keen to know what’s happening so we’re always trying to steal scripts and find out what’s going on.
