While The Vampire Diaries cast is about ready to start filming Season 5 — Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) is already on set — The CW spin-off The Originals is awaiting its leading man. Joseph Morgan (Klaus) is busy on the set of Dermaphoria, his frightening new movie.
Joseph tweeted a photo of himself waiting out a storm in New Orleans, where he’s shooting. In the film, Joseph’s character, a chemist, finds himself in jail with no memory of the drug lab explosion that landed him there. The drug-maker has one memory, though: his girlfriend, who’s missing. To find her and get rid of everyone who’s chasing him, Joseph’s character invents a dangerous new drug that will help him see into his past.
If that description gets your heart rate up, just wait until you read some of the hints about the film Joseph’s been dropping on Twitter. He says the filming has been going “Really well but very intense. In almost very scene of this movie.”
We can see why. He tweeted, “Yesterday was mad science, today is all chicken wire and bloody yo-yos. #Dermaphoria.” Bloody yo-yos? We also crack ourselves in the nose trying to do Around the World.
But it’s not all party tricks. “Today I walked through the wreckage of an explosion, learnt to drive a boat, and am about to get kidnapped. And that's all before lunch,” he recently wrote on Twitter.
Sounds like Joseph’s learning some important skills. At this point, we’re almost as excited for Dermaphoria as we are for The Originals!
