Daniel Gillies (Elijah) pratar om Flashbacks i "The Originals"

“It will be about both the contemporary [story] — where we are now and what we are up to — and also will flash back to show what the f**k happened to us to bring us to this moment,” Daniel explained.  

The show is set in New Orleans, and executive producer Julie Plec will show the city today and throughout the early 20th century, when the Originals first lived there.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel will join Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) in the April 25 backdoor pilot.

Though he’s also currently working on the Canadian show Saving Hope, Daniel’s filming schedule for the spin-off isn’t expected to interfere. 

TVD executive producer Julie Plec said she’d love for Daniel to be part of the new show, but the ball was entirely in his court. Since we can’t get enough of either Mr. Gillies or Elijah, we’re delighted he wanted to head to New Orleans!
