Welcome back to Humor Nation. There are certain characters who have made an everlasting impression on us and it is now almost impossible to imagine the show without them such as Klaus in Originals. But what if I told you that a major character like Klaus and also some other characters that you became a fan were not supposed to last that long, their time was actually pretty limited. There was a time when the writers had a limited vision involving these characters, their storylines was supposed to a shorter one, but the reception they got from the fans forced the writers to reconsider their decisions and the rest is history.
So Take A Look At 5 Characters In TVD Universe Who Were Not Supposed To Last Long
5. JOSH ROSZA
Steven Krueger did an amazing job playing the role of Joshua Rosza, the best BFF one could have. Josh is such a compassionate character who always tried doing the right thing, his loyalty to Marcel is unparalleled. But did you know that Steven Krueger was supposed to only last for one season only. A media website reported that Josh was ‘almost killed off’ in the Originals Season 1 finale, but the popularity of the character forced the writers to explore Josh’s character more. In Season 2, we would see him in a relationship with Aiden, becoming the first LGBT character on the Originals. Krueger was promoted as a regular in Season 5.
4. KLAUS MIKAELSON
We wouldn’t have the Originals or Legacies if it weren’t for Klaus Mikaelson. But did you know that the character of Klaus was supposed to die at the end of Season 3. In an interview, Joseph Morgan revealed that his character wasn’t supposed to last more than four episodes, he had no expectations that he would last that long, he believed he would die at the end of Season 3. Being the big bad villain, terrorizing everyone throughout the season and dying at the end was the logical choice.
But he used his character to build his own profile and hoped he would somehow get his own show. Lucky for him, the love that Klaus received from the fans convinced the creators to not only keep Klaus around, but also explore his family in the spin-off series. He believed that there wasn’t enough room for his character to grow in the setting of Vampire Diaries as the focus was always on the Salvatores as it was their story.
