Klaus Mikaelson is definitely one of the biggest characters in The Vampire Diaries universe – but, you shouldn’t expect to see him in Legacies. The Originals star Joseph Morgan says that despite Legacies focusing on Klaus’ daughter Hope, don’t expect to see Klaus pop up:
“No never, never. You’re never going to see it. You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Michaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2,” he told TVGuide. “So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”
For Morgan, it’s about not having his character’s return feel forced:
“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced. Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.”
