Michael Trevino Talks Playing Klaus With “a Little Swagger” on The Vampire Diaries
The Vampire Diaries pulled a fast one on us when an impassioned moment betweenCaroline (Candice Accola) andTyler (Michael Trevino) during the Season 3 finale turned into something else entirely. Not only wasKlaus (Joseph Morgan) still alive, he was inhabiting Tyler’s body and putting the moves on his hybrid buddy’s girl. Bad dog! Michael Trevino spoke toAccess Hollywood about he played the part of Klaus inside Tyler’s body.
“I told myself not to imitate how Joseph Morgan plays Klaus,” said Michael, adding that he only wanted to capture the other actor’s subtlety. “So I took that note and kind of just ran with it and sprinkled my own little Klaus mannerisms in there… Just a little flavor. He’s a Brit. I want to throw my little swagger in there.”
When the show returns for Season 4 in October, there won’t be a major time jump, so Klaus will still be taking up residence in Tyler. While Michael says Tyler’s fate is still unknown at this point, he thinks Klaus will try and “make a play again at Caroline” while his identity is still unknown.
Pretending to be her presumed-dead boyfriend? Klaus sure knows the way to a girl’s heart.
