Oct 8th: (SPOILERS) Interview With A Vampire In A Suit: The Originals’ Daniel Gillies

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Mr. Daniel Gillies while he flexed his culinary muscles on his TV brother’s recipe for stuffed red peppers. We talked about underrepresented vampires, gender equality, racial diversity, the UFC, our mutual crush on Mads Mikkelsen, and even managed to squeeze in some stuff about his awesome show The Originals and its upcoming third season.

Our website’s mission is to promote women’s contributions to sci-fi and fantasy, and I have to say that The Originals has done a pretty great job of showcasing a lot of powerful yet very different women from many racial backgrounds. Do you know if this has been a conscious goal of the series?

Well, that’s Julie Plec. I think the same could be said of any of her shows. There are always frequent and complex female characters. And what’s lovely about The Originals is that we’re most triumphantly racially diverse. It should be. It’s set in New Orleans where it’s absolutely as diverse as it gets, and we should be seeing many cultures represented. What’s cool, in terms of your question on whether it’s a conscious choice, is that, absolutely, I think it’s a choice. Ostensibly, we’re a show aimed at women in a lot of ways, even though, as the show has grown and diversified, I’ve noticed a growing male audience that is really enjoying the show. However, particularly in our origin when we split from the mothership of The Vampire Diaries, a show with an enormous demographic of women followers, it’s been in our best interest to have strong, intelligent, sassy, cool, intellectually dexterous women at the center of these dramas. It has not only behooved us to have women wielding great intellects, but we’re also sensitive to a multiplicity of female wisdom, strength, humor and contemporary fun set amid this world of magic realism. And I think they’ve done it masterfully. Look at the number of writers we have, too. I just finished working with the writer of the last episode who’s a woman, Diane Ademu-John. Michelle Paradise wrote the episode before that. Julie wrote the one before that. It’s written by women. Are we designing this show with lots of women in mind deliberately? The short answer is absolutely.

Jul 14th: The Movie Crypt: Ep 112: Daniel Gillies

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, The Originals | Comments Off on The Movie Crypt: Ep 112: Daniel Gillies

While Daniel Gillies may be best known as “Elijah Mikaelson” on the hit television shows THE ORIGINALS and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and for his acting roles in movies like SPIDER-MAN 2 and BRIDE AND PREJUDICE, it is his directorial debut (BROKEN KINGDOM) and the accompanying documentary about his incredible trials and tribulations in getting the film funded (KINGDOM COME) that have both become legends on The Movie Crypt podcast.

After countless mentions over the life of this podcast about how KINGDOM COME is the absolute “must see” filmmaking documentary for anyone wanting to learn just how harrowing the indie financing process can be, Daniel FINALLY sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen to tell his tale on this week’s fascinating episode. Listen, cringe, laugh, learn, and be inspired as Daniel shares his personal story and recollects on the experience that damn near killed him, yet couldn’t disenchant his love of cinema or his desire to do it all again someday. It doesn’t get more honest or more real than this. And seriously… we can’t recommend enough that you seek out and watch both KINGDOM COME and BROKEN KINGDOM immediately.
