It’s been exactly one week since Elijah’s fatal encounter with The Hollow on The Originals, but we hope you haven’t spent that time shedding any tears over the Big Easy’s best-dressed bloodsucker.

“How many deaths has Elijah had?” actor Daniel Gillies asks TVLine. “I haven’t got the count, but I think a few fans do. At this point, we’ve kind of cried wolf.”

But even though Elijah isn’t permanently dead — his spirit is currently chilling in Freya’s pendant — that doesn’t mean Gillies put any less effort into his character’s latest demise.
“It’s different every time,” he admits. “It depends on what weapon you’re being murdered with, if you want it slow or fast, and how exhausted you are on set that day. … I’m joking about that last one, of course. It’s contingent on so many little factors. I never want to die exactly the same way twice, even though a couple of the deaths I’ve had might have been similar.”

And you’ll be happy to know this wasn’t the kind of death that required a warning from the Powers That Be.

“We usually know when things are going to happen to us about two episodes before they do, if that,” he notes. “Sometimes it’s only an episode before. Many times, I’ve seen that solemn march down the corridors of an executive produder — poor [Michael] Narducci or Julie [Plec] — having to deliver the dark news that someone has been slain. Fortunately, I haven’t received those tidings.”

Lovers of love, myself included, will appreciate that Hayley is the one tasked with pulling Elijah’s mind back from the brink when The Originals returns on June 2 (The CW, 8/7c). But don’t expect the couple to find its happily-ever-after just yet. As Gillies explains:

“It’s sort of who they are, that’s their greatest obstacle. Have you ever been in a relationship where you’re kind of doomed from the get-go? You can sense it in your bones. There’s that feeling that you’re drawn to one another, but at the same time, you’re resisting it with good instinct. And those first instincts are the ones that need to govern. At the end of the day, [Hayley will] always be the mother to Klaus’ child, and he’ll always be murderous monster in a suit. I don’t think they’ll ever extricate themselves from what they are. And what they are at their deepest selves can’t share a sustainable relationship.”

The Originals returns with 4×10: “Phantomesque” on the second of June.



Lifetime has given the green light to original movie The Lost Wife of Robert Durst, with Katharine McPhee and Daniel Gillies set to star as Kathie and Robert Durst, Deadline.com says;

Based on Matt Birkbeck’s book, “A Deadly Secret: The Bizarre and Chilling Story of Robert Durst, the movie centers on the wife of Robert Durst, subject of HBO’s documentary The Jinx. Young and wide-eyed, Kathie (McPhee) falls in love with charming yet quirky real estate scion Robert Durst (Gillies), only to find their marriage turning stranger, darker and more disturbing as time passes. When Kathie vanishes in 1982, her family and friends are deeply disturbed that her disappearance isn’t taken seriously by police.

While Durst is currently in jail awaiting trial for the murder of his close friend, journalist Susan Berman, the questions linger as to what really happened to Kathie. The Lost Wife of Robert Durst pulls back the curtain on the world of Robert Durst and explores what may have happened between him and Kathie.

A movie about Robert Durst had been in development at Lifetime since last summer. Bettina Gilois is penning the script.

The Jinx examined Durst’s ties to his wife’s disappearance and Berman’s death, as well as the 2001 death and dismemberment of his neighbor Morris Black, for which he was tried and acquitted. The HBO series ended with Durst blurting out on a hot microphone that he “killed them all, of course.”

The Lost Wife of Robert Durst is produced by Lincoln Square and Lifetime.

McPhee stars as Paige Dineen on CBS drama series Scorpion, which recently was renewed for a fourth season.

Gillies plays Elijah on CW’s The Originals, which was renewed for a fifth season, and can next be seen in CBS’ new fall drama series SEAL Team. Gillies also directed an episode of The Originals, which airs June 2, as well as feature Broken Kingdom and documentary Kingdom Come. Gillies is repped by APA and Link Entertainment.



The Originals returns with “Phantomesque” on the second of June. This episode is also the directed by Daniel Gillies. Here’s the preview and the official episode description

DANIEL GILLIES DIRECTS THE EPISODE — After the devastating events of the previous episode, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) requests that his estranged siblings Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) and Kol (guest star Nathaniel Buzolic) return home to stand by their family against The Hollow. Meanwhile, Freya (Riley Voelkel) recruits Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) for a dangerous journey that will put both their lives at risk — but may be the sole means of saving someone they love. Elsewhere, tensions rise when Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) leads a hunt for The Hollow — putting him on a collision course with the person he was least prepared to face. Finally, as Kol continues to mourn the loss of Davina, he is forced to consider the lengths he’d go to see her again.

Phoebe Tonkin (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals) and Joel Jackson (Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door) are set to star in SBS’ upcoming Safe Harbour.

The Matchbox Pictures four-parter, currently shooting in Brisbane, will also include Ewen Leslie (Rake), Leeanna Walsman (Seven Types of Ambiguity) and Jacqueline McKenzie (The 4400).

They’ll be joined by Hazem Shammas (Underbelly), Nicole Chamoun (Kick) and Robert Rabiah (Tomorrow When the War Began).

“We are excited to be working with the enormously talented Matchbox Pictures team and a brilliant young ensemble cast who bring the story to life in beautiful Brisbane.”

Safe Harbour has received production funding from Screen Australia in association with Screen Queensland.

The Originals has -finally- been renewed for a fifth season, TV Line confirms;

The CW has opted to extend the Mikaelsons’ stay in New Orleans, renewing The Originals for a fifth season.

As previously reported, Michael Narducci will not return as showrunner for Season 5. Instead, series creator — and former Vampire Diaries showrunner — Julie Plec will call the shots. Leslie Morgenstern (TVD) will also executive-produce.

The Originals follows, as its title suggests, the world’s first family of vampires — plus a few hybrids and witches thrown in for good measure. Now midway through its fourth season, the show is pitting its heroes against their most powerful foe yet, a mysterious entity known as The Hollow.

Thus far this season The Originals is averaging 980,000 total viewers and a 0.3 rating, up in audience versus Season 3 but down a tick in the demo (where it matches the recently axed Frequency and No Tomorrow and bests Reign and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend).
