“In the beginning I was a very old vampire who was going to live like two episodes,” Daniel Gillies explains to TVGuide.com. “They didn’t know I was going to be a brother, I [just] was a henchman.” But Elijah has transformed from being terrifyingly powerful in his knowledge and skills, to a still powerful vampire, but one with a distinct moral compass and compassion for Elena who Gillies calls a warrior.

Daniel Gillies plays formidable Elijah foe-turned-ally in Season 3 of “The Vampire Diaries.” After being resurrected for the fourth time in the series, Gillies shares his insights on the show’s star, Nina Dobrev, who plays small-town doppelganger Elena Gilbert, the future of the Original vampire clan and the classical nature of his character. But Elijah isn’t Gillies’ main focus — upcoming projects include the NBC medical drama “Saving Hope,” with “Smallville’s” Erica Durance and Michael Shanks, and a new film, “Broken Kingdom,” with Rachel Leigh Cook that he wrote and directed.

NS: You say Elijah has been around for 1,000 years, yet he’s still getting duped by “ludicrous nothings.” Do you consider Elena a “nothing?”

Elijah’s seeming attraction to Elena comes from a similar desire to intrigue the audience. “Nina Dobrev and I just like working with each other and maybe we’re a little too flirty with each other. It just ends up in what we’re doing. That’s all it is. I really enjoy working with Ian Somerhalder. Not so flirty with Ian. Only with Nina.” He does think that there is more than simple friendship between the characters.”There’s some sort of unsaid thing that’s happening which I like. It’s going to sound pretentious, but it’s kind of like a spiritual romance. They both aspire to the same qualities in a person. I think that Elijah’s certainly enchanted by a nobility that she’s able to uphold, that he aspires to.” He may even forgive Elena after he learns that she has betrayed him. “He’s able to forgive Klaus (Joseph Morgan) for some atrocities. I think that if he thinks people are doing things in their best interests, then he’s probably relatively forgiving. We just have to see.”
