Daniel Gillies Joining Vampire Diaries Spinoff

Daniel Gillies is joining Joseph Morgan and Phoebe Tonkin in "The Vampire Diaries" spinoff, "The Originals." The spinoff series will be introduced in the "Vampire Diaries" episode that will air on April 25. All three are reprising their roles from the original series.

The new show is keeping the three-lead (two vampire brothers and a girl) formula of "Vampire Diaries," but this time the female lead, Hayley (Tonkin), is not an ordinary teenager but a werewolf.

If "The Originals" goes to series, Gillies will appear in both that show and Canadian medical drama "Saving Hope."

Written by Vampire Diaries co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec, "The Originals" centers on the Original family of vampires, as Klaus (Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel. Elijah (Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.
