The Originals will be gaining a new cast member this season, TVLine reports. Days of Our Lives star Matt Cedeño will play a vampire from the Mikaelson’s past.
Matt Cedeño (Devious Maids, Days of Our Lives) will arrive in Episode 15 of The Originals‘ current season, TVLine has learned, playing a “callous, smart and manipulative vampire from the Mikaelsons’ past who comes to New Orleans seeking vengeance.”
“Cortez is someone who was sired by a unique circumstance,” executive producer Michael Narducci tells TVLine. “He has a very interesting perspective, particularly on Klaus. He’s of Klaus’ sire line, but he was not sired by Klaus. He’s a very intriguing character, one of the most dangerous folks we’ve met.”
