The best part about playing in a world of supernatural shenanigans and magical rituals is that it provides the opportunity to see any character again — alive or dead — thanks to resurrection spells, hallucinations or just good old hauntings. That's exactly what the cast of Legacies is hoping for when it comes to potential cameos from The Vampire Dairiesand The Originals characters.
When TV Guide caught up with the cast at New York Comic Con, we had to ask about their dream crossover choices to see whether they were secretly wishing for a visit from a certain Salvatore or Mikaelson clan member. The responses were surprisingly varied, and we're completely in support of each and every one of them!
Danielle Rose Russell naturally picked her on-screen dad as a her dream cameo option, though it may be a little difficult for Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) to pay his daughter a visit from the beyond. "Julie Plec has an open door policy, so hopefully if anyone wants to come along they can," Russell said, "but I would love to see Klaus back."
Matth Davis, the show's resident The Vampire Diaries veteran, actually had a super unexpected choice, listing Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev) as his first choice to return. Davis didn't leave Alaric's old drinking buddy, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), out in the cold though. "Obviously I'd love to see Damon, I would love that. I'd love to have a moment where they run into each other, clock each other, where he sees Elena at some point," Davis explained. "Because they've now become the townies and they're in the background somewhere. So it'd be an interesting moment to have those two see each other."
As for Kaylee Bryant, who plays a teenage Josie Saltzman, she'd prefer to keep things in the witch family. "I just feel like Bonnie (Kat Graham), throughout The Vampire Diaries, was in a similar vein [as Josie]. Just constantly doing the spell to get everyone out of that situation and looking after all of her friends, and I just feel like they could hang out over a good cup of tea and just talk about life," she said.
Legacies premieres Thursday, October 25 at 9/8c on The CW.
