The Originals Yusuf Gatewood, Finn Mikaelson, talks about Rebekah’s return and peeling back the layers!

Yusuf Gatewood is the newest regular cast member on The Originals, so he’ll be staying around for awhile as Finn Mikaelson, aka Vincent Griffith! But how long will he stay in that coffin?

While many significant events happened in “The Brothers That Care Forgot” episode, most significant was the return of Rebekah, Claire Holt, and baby Hope, both of whom will be sticking around for the mid-season finale 2×09 “The Map of Moments” on December 8th, 2014.

Yusuf on Rebekah and peeling the Mikaelson clan layers

The big thing I think everybody’s excited about is that Rebekah’s coming back, but within that, and her purpose in that, it’s just sort of like peeling back layers on this whole Mikaelson clan, and that’s the cool thing about all of this.

He says peeling back the layers will give a peek into what’s behind the actions as well as the motivations of both Esther and Finn. He reveals that people on Twitter hate him since he’s going after Klaus and Cami. Flashbacks have revealed why Esther wants to change her children back to mortal lives and why Finn is so close to her and wants to help her achieve her goal.

Yusuf gives credit to the writers for helping to peel back the layers of the Mikaelson family as well as Finn. Since his character on The Vampire Diaries wasn’t as fleshed out as much as Kol, the writers have given him lots of leeway to help flesh Finn out.

Enjoy the KSiteTV interview as Yusuf peels back the layers on Finn and the Mikaelson family!
