Welcome back to Humor Nation. Klaus Mikaelson is arguably the most popular character in the TVD Universe. This character too existed in the TVD books, however, the book version of Klaus Mikaelson was entirely different. It was pretty old in age and far more sinister and devious. The TVD showrunners decided to cast a younger actor for the role. Interestingly, the casting for the character took too long so the writers had to create the character of Elijah Mikaelson to keep the storyline progressing. He’s a character whose reputation preceded him. There was an immense anticipation and hype surrounding this character. Eventually when he arrived, he turned out to be far more ruthless that we imagined him to be. But the charisma of the actor Joseph Morgan made Klaus into a fan favorite. This compelled the writers to transform him into an anti-hero and also explore his story arc in depth thus giving him more screen time and ultimately a separate spin-off.
