Sebastian Roché: France
Sebastian Roché (Mikael) may play the father of the Original vampire line, but you wouldn’t guess it from his accent! The actor, of French and Scottish descent, was born and raised in Paris, France. As a teenager, he was home-schooled for six years as he traveled the world on a sailboat with his family. (He’s fluent in French, English, Italian, and Spanish.) Sebastian moved to the States in 1992.
