Joseph Morgan chatted with E! Online about Haley and impending fatherhood:
What’s coming up for Hayley on The Originals? I’m surprised by how much I am loving her on this show!
The Originals are surprised by their affection for her, too! “We’re going to see a little more of his protective side, and I think indeed from the entire Mikaelson family. We’re going to see them kind of embrace the idea that this baby and therefore this person, this mother, Hayley, belong to us,” Joseph Morgan previews. “She’s with us now.” But it won’t always be easy for Klaus to show his softer side to Hayley. “I hope he’ll be a little more understanding and considerate to the mother of his child, although I feel like he fluctuates,” Morgan explains. “I feel like he wasn’t keen to show her that she perhaps means something.”
How do you feel about the whole Haley baby story?
It’s central to The Originals show and during the backdoor pilot a lot of people were upset about the whole baby story. Perhaps shock is a better word! I’ll admit while watching the backdoor pilot I was a bit perplexed when it was revealed Haley was carrying Klaus’s child. The idea seemed to come completely out of left field. I had my doubts then, but now I’m kinda liking the whole idea. It gives us an opportunity to see Klaus in a different light.
From what I’ve read around the web it seems a lot of people weren’t big fans of Haley’s character to begin with. Now she is central to the show’s story. I never had a problem with Haley and I’m a big fan of Phoebe Tonkin (I really miss The Secret Circle).
How do you feel about Haley’s character?
Were you a skeptic before and now a fan?
