In The Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) heads for New Orleans, but does that mean he’s leaving his affection for Caroline (Candice Accola) behind, as well?

 

Not exactly, executive producer Julie Plec tells Entertainment Weekly, but a human may catch his eye. Cami (Leah Pipes) a psychology student, works as a bartender at Rousseau's, New Orleans’s answer to the Mystic Grill.

 

''She refuses to believe in evil,'' explains Julie. ''She believes that every person has a story, and you just have to dig deep enough to try to get to the bottom of what their story is.”

 

Klaus and Cami’s interaction is brief, but we all know the way to his heart is through art. The two meet and discuss a painting in Jackson Square, and her analysis gives the hybrid ''a little bit of understanding, like perhaps he could be related to,” says Julie.

 

Much like with Elena (Nina Dobrev), vampires just can’t stay away from the human. Klaus’s protégé Marcel is drawn to Cami, and that interests Klaus.

Don’t worry, Klaroline fans. Julie promises, ''Klaus is still very attached to Caroline Forbes and the idea of what it could be like if they were ever to be together. It'll be a little bit of time before, if ever, he's able to be distracted from that.”

 

Do you think Klaus needs a new love interest, or are you holding out hope for him and Caroline?
