In a show filled with backstabbers, power-grabbers, and all-out villains, newbie vampire Josh (Steven Krueger) is a breath of fresh air on The Originals. He’s just trying to survive in this crazy, dangerous supernatural world — and look out for best friend Davina (Danielle Campbell), of course. The lifestyle doesn’t leave much time for dating, but Josh deserves a chance at love. Is there a lucky man in his future? Danielle talked to TV Line about possible love interests for Josh!
“Oh, we’ve been joking around about that on set for so long. I think he’s long overdue to have one, so I wouldn’t say that’s unlikely,” Danielle said, which seems hopeful — that is if Josh makes it to the second season. Executive producer Julie Plec said The Originals would see more than a few character deaths before Season 1 is out, and we’re totally worried about Josh. What did Danielle have to say to quell our fears? Not much, unfortunately.
“On this show, you have to be worried about everybody,” Danielle admitted in response to a question concerning Josh’s possible death. “I mean, I just came back from the dead! I wish I could tell you not to worry about Josh, but you should. And I love their friendship, too. I think he’s the one person she can really trust, and she’ll never question whether he has her best interests at heart. He’s her family right now.”
Aww. We’re really hope these two both make it to Season 2. They’ve gotta be the nicest characters on the show, right? And, on a series that counts one of its main characters as its chief villains, we need some nice characters to root for.
Do you think Josh will get a love interest? Do you think he’ll make it to Season 2? Sound off in the comments below!
The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
