Directed by actor Daniel Gillies, Episode 410 of The CW series The Originals, entitled “Phantomesque,” the danger is ramping up to a seemingly insurmountable level, as Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) return at the request of Klaus (Joseph Morgan), so that their family can stand even stronger against the devastating force that is The Hollow. With Elijah (Gillies) currently unable to help, Freya (Riley Voelkel) is working with Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) is trying to figure out a plan of his own.

During this 1-on-1 phone interview with Collider, Daniel Gillies talked about the difference between directing a movie (he wrote, directed and starred in the feature film Broken Kingdom) versus an episode of television, the challenge of telling your co-stars what to do, being directed by his co-stars in return (Joseph Morgan and Charles Michael Davis have also helmed episodes), and how he hopes to direct again next year, along with the bittersweet departure of showrunner Michael Narducci (for whom Julie Plec will be taking over in Season 5), having a conclusive element to the story for each season, wanting to always be challenged, as an actor, and his character’s true motivations.
