The Originals: Can Klaus Pull the Wool Over Marcel's Eyes?
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Emotions and familial feelings aside, there's also trouble for Klaus considering Marcel has seen - and learned -- all Klaus' tricks. Part of Klaus' plan, which has already hit some bumps, was to stake Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and hand him over to Marcel as a messed up form of trust and collateral. Needless to say, Rebekah (Claire Holt) was furious to learn her favorite brother is stuck in a coffin in the attic of her one-time lover Marcel and his freakishly powerful teenage secret weapon Davina (Danielle Campbell). While both stubborn siblings know that they're more powerful together than apart, they'll continue to bump heads in an effort to take back their brother. You'll see a lot of their love and resentment and 1,000 years of pain and conflict, Morgan says. [...] how Elijah will feel when he's un-daggererd? "I suppose Elijah would've liked to be let in on the plan before he became a part of it that way," Morgan says. Or will they face an even bigger threat that causes them ...

'Ironside,' 'The Originals' new dramas on TV
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
The pilot tells us how Ironside lost the use of his legs through a series of flashbacks showing him getting shot while on a case with his partner, Gary Stanton (Brent Sexton, "The Killing"). The character exposition is set against the supposed suicide of a beautiful young woman who had worked in an investment firm. Good supporting castUnderwood is OK, if a little too hungry to chew the scenery, but the supporting cast is very good, including Sexton as the other "victim" of the shooting, who feels guilty for not having his partner's back; TV's busiest character actor, Pablo Schreiber ("Orange Is the New Black"), as one of Ironside's team; Spencer Grammer ("Greek") as brainy and beautiful cop Holly; and Kenneth Choi ("House") as the captain whose primary job is to tell Ironside to follow the rules. The Originals" is about actual vampires, not to mention witches and hybrids - that would be a werewolf-vampire mix, not a Toyota Prius - and it's a spinoff from another CW hit, "The Vampire ...

Rachael Leigh Cook: I’m Happy We Waited to Have a Baby
Celebrity Babies - People - over 3 years
Joe Scarnici/Getty After tying the knot in 2004, Rachael Leigh Cook and her husband Daniel Gillies are “so excited” to be expecting a baby — but that’s because they waited. “We got married incredibly fast,” the actress, 33, told PEOPLE from the set of her TNT crime-drama, Perception. “We got engaged after dating for maybe five months and we got married a couple of months after that. There was just so much more both of us wanted to do. We wanted to travel and accomplish a lot more in our professional lives.” Although many people were waiting to see her pregnant — Cook says that after announcing she was expecting, many reactions included “Finally!” — she insists she and the Vampire Diaries star, 37, have no regrets waiting almost a decade into their marriage to add a baby carriage. “We’re both people who like kids, but we weren’t jumping up and down, like, ‘Oh my God, let’s start that chapter of our lives,’” she explains. “We weren’t those kind of people.

"The Originals" has been picked up for a full season! "The Vampire Diaries" spinoff, which aired its backdoor pilot on Thursday night, will join its parent show, "Supernatural," "Arrow," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Hart of Dixie" for The CW's 2013-2014 TV season. "As soon as we saw last night's episode of ''The Vampire Diaries,' we knew we wanted more of 'The Originals' -- Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with 'The Vampire Diaries,' which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for 'The Originals,'" Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, said in a statement on "The Originals" series order. The CW's decision to pick up "The Originals" is not particularly surprising, considering the success of "The Vampire Diaries." However, the pilot did not impress in the ratings.

Joseph Morgan Talks 'The Vampire Diaries' Death, Spinoff And More
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"The Vampire Diaries'" Joseph Morgan is one of the most beloved villains on TV. But in last week's episode, fans saw his character Klaus' softer side. Below, Morgan, who plays the perhaps not-so-evil hybrid on the blood-sucking The CW drama, spoke with The Huffington Post about the tear-filled scene and what it could mean for Klaus and Caroline a.k.a. Klaroline. "There always seems to be a glimmer of hope," Morgan said about one of the most shipped couples on "The Vampire Diaries." "I think there's this spark between them." As for who will die in Season 4 -- an event that has viewers on the edge of their seats -- Morgan was tight-lipped about the facts, but opened up about his feelings towards the big moment. "It's always ... kind of emotional to know that one of the people that you see every day, or almost every day, you're suddenly not going to see them so often," he said.

The CBS pilot, which is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and already has Toni Collette attached, follows a Washington, D.C. family caught in the middle of a massive political conspiracy. On "Hostages" (based on an Israeli series), Collette's role is the matriarch Ellen, a surgeon who's forced to save her family's lives, and McDermott will play Duncan, "a righteous FBI agent at the center of said conspiracy whose role will come as a surprise," according to TVLine.

Jen Grisanti: To Realize Your Dream or Not
Huffington Post - over 4 years
How do you go from having an unrealized dream to realizing your dream? I explore this concept in my upcoming book, Change Your Story, Change Your Life: A Path to Your Success. Both in fiction and in life, you have a choice: you can be an active hero in your story or you can be a passive and reactive one. My book guides the reader how to become the author of their life and become an active hero in pursuit of their dreams. Through story tools, I show the reader how, in any story, we empathize with a central character at the beginning because their world is suddenly turned upside down. By the end of the story, after watching the central character move through a series of obstacles and escalating obstacles, we see he/she learn, grow and realize what they need to do in order to achieve their goal. You can do this in your life as well. You can take a dream that is unrealized and use basic story tools to materialize that dream. On this note, I recently saw two noteworthy documenta ...

Boom Tron - over 4 years
Are you ready for the return of The Vampire Diaries? The CW thinks, or rather knows so, releasing a full blown cast photo for their highest rated show, coming at you from Mystic Falls. As you can see, it all centers around sexy Elena. Either that or legs, because there’s certainly a lot of it being flexed by Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, and well...everyone. Only Dobrev’s, however, are guarded by the Salvatore brothers, with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley taking up position to either side of TVD star.

'Vampire Diaries' Star Daniel Gillies Teases Elijah's Season Four Return
MTV News - over 4 years
Things are going to get a bit crazy when "The Vampire Diaries" returns for its fourth season on October 11. There's the fact that you know who became a vampire, a certain someone has possessed another certain someone, and Elena has seemingly picked one Salvatore brother over the other. But while we're interested in the resolution of all of those plot points, we're also curious what the status of the Original Family is now that everyone thinks Klaus is dead (like it ever would be that easy). We recently had the chance to catch up with Daniel Gillies, the actor who plays brother Elijah, and asked him what we can expect from the Original vampire siblings in the coming season. Consider this your cue to stop reading if you aren't caught up on "The Vampire Diaries." Daniel revealed that he had just come back from "The Vampire Diaries" set where he filmed a flashback scene set in the 11th century. He wouldn't dish what it was about, but he did say fans should "buckle up and get ready fo ...
