English actor Joseph Morgan has been in the acting industry for many years now and has enjoyed a number of roles in some very interesting and exciting movie and television projects along the way. However, with that said, it is fair to say that Joseph Morgan did not really hit the big time until he landed the role of Klaus in the hit The CW television series The Vampire Diaries.
Following his role as Klaus in The Vampire Diaries, which saw Joseph Morgan appearing in 50 episodes of the show to date, going on to become a household name around the world, the spinoff series The Originals was created. The Originals has proven to be almost as successful as The Vampire Diaries and Morgan has appeared in 45 episodes of the show so far, but he has much more than that coming up.
As well as his continued role as Klaus Mikaelson in both The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, Joseph Morgan also has a couple of movie projects coming up. Joseph will appear on the big screen in the movie Dermaphoria, which co-stars Walton Goggins, Ron Perlman, and Kate Walsh. Morgan will be seen in the film 500 Miles North, alongside Matt Ryan and Kevin McNally, with both movies awaiting an official release date.
Joseph Morgan has enjoyed a long and steady rise to Hollywood stardom but his hard work and dedication has finally paid off, with the actor becoming one of the top television stars in the business, while continuing to take on plenty of movie projects.
The Originals is currently in its second season and continues to air on The CW on Monday evenings at 8/7c, with a third season confirmed for later in the year.
