'The Originals': Sebastian Roche talks season 2 secrets and Mikael's softer side

There is only one name that strikes genuine fear into the heart of Klaus Mikaelson: Mikael.

When Mikael first entered the third season of The Vampire Diaries, he was known as the vampire who hunted vampires. It was then pieced together that he was much more than that. He was the father of the Original family.

And with that discovery came baggage. Years before, when Mikael discovered that his wife had cheated on him with a werewolf and that Klaus was not his biological son, Mikael had cast Klaus aside, labeling him “an abomination.” And when Mikael helped Esther turn their family into vampires, the parents tried to keep Klaus’ wolf side at bay. But more than a thousand years later, Klaus is a hybrid, and Mikael is still determined to kill him.

And despite being killed on The Vampire Diaries, the Original father has found his way back to the land of the living on The Originals, and with season 2, Mikael has his biggest role yet. We spoke with the man behind Mikael, Sebastian Roché, about the character, what comes next, and more.

'The Originals': Mikael's coming to New Orleans -- PHOTO

It’s official, Originals fans! Mikael is coming to town.

We suspected we’d see the Original father at some point, but we’ve now confirmed that he will show up in the upcoming episode on Tuesday, March 4. Viewers will get a flashback to 1919 when Mikael arrived in New Orleans after being summoned by Rebekah and Marcel.

For those fans who didn’t see Mikael when he came to The Vampire Diaries, he’s the father of the Original family, though he isn’t Klaus’ biological father. Klaus’ mother, Esther, had an affair with a werewolf, hence Klaus’ hybrid capabilities and Mikael’s hatred of Klaus, even at a young age. And after Klaus killed his mother, that hatred only grew. Mikael spent the rest of his life trying to track down his half-son. And when the Vampire Diaries crew reunited them two seasons ago, the showdown was epic.
