The Originals' Klaus is about to meet his match in the "charming and sexy bad boy" department.

When Vampire Diaries fans first met Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in Season 2, he was an evil and malicious villain unwilling to stop at anything to get what he wanted. As time progressed, Klaus kept up his malevolent ways, but he also gained a bit of humanity, a sense of humor and quite a lot of charm along the way. When the show's spin-off debuts next month, Klaus — and Morgan — will have some stiff competition as our favorite bad boy we love to hate.

"You're not going to love to hate him; you're going to love to love him!" star Charles Michael Davis tells in the video below of his character Marcel. 

"He's so popular," Morgan adds. "Marcel has a legion. I love his introduction when we come in the bar and he's singing, everyone's cheering and Klaus just stands in the back like, 'What the?'"
