The Originals Star Sebastian Roché Lands Guest Role on Scandal!
Need another Sebastian Roché fix? The actor who plays The Originals’ dastardly dad Mikael is about to star in a several-episode arc of Scandal. We’re not sure who should be more worried: Olivia Pope or the Original vampire.
“I repeat, I'll be on SCANDAL this coming Thursday 3rd April for a few eps, tell everyone :) with @guillermodiazyo,” Sebastian tweeted a few days ago, implying that his character will interact with Huck during his stint. But this isn’t the only excited Scandal-themed tweet Sebastian unleashed from his Twitter handle over the past week. He also shared a photo of himself and Kerry Washington together, a look at his beautiful Paul Smith-designed costume, and his thoughts on “the wonderful cast.” Basically, this actor is incredibly gracious and enthusiastic on whichever show he happens to grace his presence.
We love Sebastian’s behind-the-scenes tweets. Just a few days ago, he shared a nostalgic photo from his time on The Vampire Diariesset, circa Season 3: “Fond memories!!! Oh yeah!! With @natebuzz @iansomerhalder @ernestoriley @rickworthy @Michael_Trevino @ToddWilliams,” he captioned the photo of himself with many of the other TVDers.
And he wasted no time in spreading the family love during his recent time on The Originals set. He snapped both these photo of himself with his on-screen sons, Daniel Gillies (Elijah) and Joseph Morgan(Klaus), as well as this goofy one with JoMo getting staked. Sebastian’s awesome behind-the-scenes snapshots are worth him getting cast at all, in our opinion. Of course, he also happens to be an excellent actor — but that’s just an added bonus, right?
Will you watch Sebastian’s turn on Scandal? Do you hope to see him on The Originals again? Sound off in the comments below!
