The lucky man is Sebastian Roché — aka Mikael Mikaelson, the dastardly patriarch of the Original Family. The TVD/Originalsstar just shared this gorgeous shot of himself and his betrothed lounging in the French countryside, along with the caption: “Vive la France, 2 days before the wedding.” Congrats, Sebastian!
Though we haven’t seen the British actor recently on TVD, he played a fairly prominent presence in the second half of The Originals. First, we saw him in flashbacks to the fateful days he caught up to bastard son Klaus in New Orleans. More recently, he convinced Davina to bring him back from the Other Side, unbeknownst to any of the other characters on the show. We doubt we’ve seen the last of this schemer!
Wedding fever seems to be contagious on The Originals set. Joseph Morgan (Klaus) also recently announced his engagement to girlfriend and fellow TVD alum Persia White (she played Bonnie’s mom, Abby Bennett on the vampire drama). Are you thinking what we’re thinking? Double, vampire-themed wedding! We’re just going to go ahead and pretend these “family” photos taken on the set of The Originals pilot are from the festivities.
Are you surprised to hear that Sebastian is getting married? Hit the comments and let us know!
