London Comic Con visitors will get to see Episode 1 of THE ORIGINALS – the brand new chapter from The Vampire Diaries currently making its UK premier on Syfy and on The CW in the US. Syfy’s special comic con screening will also feature an exclusive pre-recorded introduction from series star JOSEPH MORGAN, as well as a sneak preview of Episode 2.
The Originals centres on the Mikaelson siblings, Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah, first seen in Season Two of The Vampire Diaries and established in the hit series as the world’s original vampires.
The Originals sees Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah returning to their former home in New Orleans, where they become embroiled in a power struggle with those who want to claim the city, currently controlled by Klaus’ former protégé, Marcel. The various factions – vampires, witches, werewolves and humans – crave a peaceful community but a centuries-long war rages amongst them. Now in the midst of a thriving New Orleans, a city steeped in magic and history, the war is about to reach a fever pitch, and the Originals stand as the catalyst. As lines are drawn and strategies are laid out, one truth will echo through the French Quarter – power begins and ends with family.
The Originals stars JOSEPH MORGAN as Klaus, DANIEL GILLIES as Elijah, CLAIRE HOLT as Rebekah, PHOEBE TONKIN as Hayley, CHARLES MICHAEL DAVIS as Marcel, DANIELLA PINEDA as Sophie, LEAH PIPES as Camille and DANIELLE CAMPBELL as Davina.
