INDIE FIX: Broken Kingdom and Kingdom Come
The harsh realities of independent filmmaking

Broken Kingdom and Kingdom Come

Directed by Daniel Gillies (Broken Kingdom) and John Lyons Murphy and Paiman Kalayeh (Kingdom Come)

Daniel Gillies: Art is the Highest Form of Worship
I got a chance to catch up with Daniel recently at home when he came back for one of his usual twenty-four hour weekend visits with the family. Daniel and my husband did an NBC pilot together years ago and have remained good friends ever since. Over the years, I have gotten to know him and he definitely embodies the 'soul of biz' because he is a true artist at heart.

Daniel is currently finishing up shooting the 1st season of The Originals for the CW. He also plays a doctor on *NBC's Saving Hope, which he shoots the rest of the year. He is so passionate about what he does and I honestly believe that he would do it, even if he didn't get paid a cent.

* DGilliesNetwork Note: Saving Hope is no longer on NBC - it airs on CTV in Canada.

PaleyFest Panel
Los Angeles, CA
The actors of The Originals,  including Daniel, attended PaleyFest 2014, in which the entire starring cast appeared on-stage along with
 Executive Producer Julie Plec and Co-Executive Producer Michael Narducci. They answered questions posed by the panel moderator, and also took some audience questions. As always, the cast had a great time teasing each other, as well as giving us some thoughtful insight into their characters, the story, and what might be ahead. If you haven't seen this entertaining panel, you can view the entire broadcast HERE on youtube.
Also, be sure to check out our GALLERY of photos of Daniel from the event, which include the red carpet and screen shots of the panel itself, as well as a lot of casual pics and selfies that are a lot of fun!

In case you didn't know, Daniel's birthday was Friday, March 14th. In the days preceding his birthday, we collected messages from his fans and supporters via twitter, and posted them on a special birthday page here, where he could read them without getting bogged down in all the spam that is typically found in his twitter @ mentions. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted a message. Just to let you know - the link was emailed to Daniel, and he has seen it and said it was lovely!

Daniel Gillies Talks Elijah, Klaus & The Originals - Exclusive Interview (Video)
If anyone asked us what it is about Daniel Gillies that makes the ladies and gents go wild, generating a list of worthwhile responses would not pose a challenge at all. He's a handsome, talented, and engaging fellow. Plus, he plays Elijah Mikaelson with such keen perfection every week on The Originals (which airs Tuesday evenings at 8:00 pm ET/PT on The CW) so what's not to adore about this New Zealand actor/director/screenwriter/devoted husband and father? Essentially he's a prime example of a modern Renaissance man.

Fans know him as the nobler Original brother but Kiwi actor Daniel Gillies has a controversial opinion on his character Elijah.  “His [Elijah’s] disease is his unrelenting love for his brother. It's like an abusive relationship with somebody that’s heavily addicted to drugs.”  
Daniel also reveals that if he could play any other character on the show he’d choose teen witch, Davina!   Find out why and what Daniel misses most about New Zealand.

The Originals scoop: Daniel Gillies Talks What Elijah Sees In Hayley and His Monster Within

From the beginning of The Originals, there was just a hit of perhaps more than a brotherly interest by Elijah (Daniel Gillies, pictured with Tiffany Vogt) in Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), the werewolf baby-momma of his indifferent brother, Klaus (Joseph Morgan). But that hint has begun to look like more distinct romantic interest when Elijah returned from his brief time away in Marcel's (Charles Michael Davis) coffin and actively began to hover more protectively around Hayley and unborn child.
