He plays a Viking-era vamp on the Vampire Diaries, but where is Joseph Morgan (Klaus) really from?

If the accent didn’t already give it away, this charismatic actor has an English pedigree. Born in London, England, Joseph lived for 11 years in a small town called Morriston (with a population of less than 17,000) located in Wales.

He later moved back to London in his late teens to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama at the University of London.

It sounds like he’s a city boy at heart!
