‘The Originals’ brings back Sebastian Roche as the Original father

Look for Sebastian Roche to appear on The Originals this fall, reprising his role as Elijah and Rebekah’s father Mikael.

EW reports that Roche, whose character first appeared in The Vampire Diaries season 3 as the father of the Original vampires, will appear in an episode of The Originals season 1.

We have to assume that it will be in a flashback, seeing as Mikael was killed off on The Vampire Diaries.

What do you think they need to bring back Mikael for? Will we finally meet Klaus’ real father, the werewolf whom Esther had an affair with?

Further, the memorable Supernatural guest star Todd Stashwick, who played Dracula (kind of) in the black-and-white episode “Monster Movie,” has landed the recurring role of Kieran.

We have previously reported that Kieran is a priest with a dark past, who first appears in episode 4 of season 1.

Showrunner Julie Plec now reveals to EW how Kieran finds himself involved with the Originals.

She explains, “Once a powerful and pragmatic diplomat between the humans and the various supernatural factions in New Orleans, he returns home looking for answers about a personal tragedy but finds a very different landscape than when he left.”

The Originals premieres Thursday, October 3, airing at 9/8c on The CW. After this, it will air Tuesday nights at 8/7c (starting October 8).
