Joseph Morgan Bio

Mar 14, 2013

Joseph Morgan plays original vampire Klaus on The Vampire Diaries. Learn more about the actor in his Kidzworld Bio!

British Beginnings

Joseph was born in England on May 16, 1981 but was raised on the island of Wales. From a young age he was interested in theater, and studied at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. His very first audition was for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, but he wasn’t successful.

Joseph’s first major role was in 2004 as Troy on the TV series Hex. The show was made in the UK and focused on a girl who had dangerous powers. After appearing in a handful of episodes, he moved onto other TV movies and TV mini-series.

Klaus

 In 2011 Joseph got his big break when he was cast in The Vampire Diaries as Klaus. Klaus is an original vampire who has a deep connection with Stefan, Damon and Katherine. What sets him apart from his siblings, Elijah and Rebekah, is that Klaus is a hybrid – a cross between a vampire and a werewolf! Joseph’s character has had such a great response on the show that The CW has offered him his own show called The Originals. The show will focus on the original vampire family.

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
