Charles Michael Davis, Julie Plec and Jason Dohring Tease ‘The Originals’ Season 3
The Originals returns tonight with the new threat of the Mikaelson’s first sired line coming to town and causing some trouble.
The Mikaelson’s original sired line will bring lots of trouble with them and Charles Michael Davis teased where Marcel stands on the subject of the old new kids, since Marcel is also one of the siblings’ sired vamps.
“They predate him, so he’s heard of them,” Davis told THR. “There’s some knowledge and some respect there. He’s heard about them through the Originals, [but] the Originals haven’t had contact with them in so long, they’re not in Marcel’s world. But of course, since he’s tied so close to the Original family, he’ll be pulled into it in the present day.”
Veronica Mars alum Jason Dohring will make his debut this season as (human) Detective Kinney. Julie Plec has previously described his character as “a nice breath of fresh air” and now Jason is giving fans more insight into the character.
“There’s a gruesome discovery made in a courtyard. He calls in his friend and confidant, Vincent, to help solve it, because he’s into the occult and he knows that sort of thing,” said Dohring. “He winds up working with Cami as well to build a profile for who this guy could be. He doesn’t know anything is out of the ordinary, particularly, until maybe the sixth episode in. Along the way, there’s things that Cami is not saying that are being picked up on. They’re working together, but there’s an uneasiness, because she doesn’t want him to know, obviously, what’s really probably going on. And he’s [like], ‘What the f— aren’t you telling me?’ So there’s that rigid vibe, as well.”
The little witch that could, Davina, will also be getting in on some action this season as she tries to settle into her new role as Regent of the New Orleans Witch Community.
“For Davina, the biggest [issue] for her is this idea of what is this young girl — older and wiser, beyond her years — going to do with this new batch of responsibilities, with very grownup powers and grownup obligations in the witches’ community?” Plec teased. “She’s very quickly going to learn that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. She has to seek some advice from friends in equally powerful positions on how to get people to respect her.”
The Originals returns to The CW on tonight 9pm, following The Vampire Diaries season premiere at 8.
