The Originals, which centers on the original vampires featured in The Vampire Diaries, moves to New Orleans this week as anticipated.
The Originals will follow Klaus (Joseph Morgan), “who 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 protege Marcel (The Game’s Charles Michael Davis).”
Claire Holt will also reprise her role as original vamp Rebekah, Klaus’ half sister. Other familiar faces will include Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). Daniella Pineda and Danielle Campbell have also joined the cast as witches, while Leah Pipes will play Camille, a human unaware of the supernatural universe that exists around her.
The Originals pilot/The Vampire Diaries episode 420 is filming at 641 Bourbon Street (around Bourbon & St. Peter St) and Pirate Alley (around St Peter and Chartres St) in New Orleans tomorrow, March 11, all day.
Last week they filmed in The Vampire Diaries studio in Georgia and on location in Conyers, GA.
The Originals pilot will air April 25 as an episode of The Vampire Diaries. If the series is picked up, it will debut on The CW in the fall.
