The Originals Cast: Where Are They Really From?

We hate to break it to you, but your beloved cast of The Originals isn’t from New Orleans — heck, some of them aren’t even from the United States. Sure, their on-screen counterparts know their way around the Big Easy, but where are these guys and gals really from?

Just like the Mikaelson siblings — who have definitely seen everywhere on Earth in their centuries of living it up — the cast hails from different corners of the world and combines to make what we consider the greatest cast of 2013. Seriously, with source material like The Vampire Diaries, they’re really living up to all the hype.
