The Originals' Nathan Parsons on Hayley's Future With Jackson, the 'Explosive' Finale and More

We’re exactly one week away from the return of The CW’s The Originals (April 15, 8/7c) – and just when you thought the stakes couldn’t get any higher in the Big Easy, enter “the original werewolves.”

TVLine spoke with Nathan Parsons (aka Hayley’s were-fiancĂ© Jackson) about what we can expect from those new wolves, Jackson’s blossoming relationship with Hayley and the rest of Season 1.
TVLINE | Even in its first season, The Originals is pretty complicated. How familiar were you with it when you joined?
I was familiar with the general mythology from The Vampire Diaries, because I’d met Julie [Plec] and a few of the executive producers when I read for a few parts. Actually, I read for one of the vampires back when The Originals was casting as a pilot. I kept myself up to date on the mythology, so when they called again for the part of Jackson, it wasn’t tough to catch up.
TVLINE | You were almost a vampire? Do you remember which one you read for?
I don’t, unfortunately. They actually don’t tell you the names when you go in. It’s all very secretive.
TVLINE | Let’s talk Hayley and Jackson. What’s really going on there?
Their relationship is complicated. Jackson has watched Hayley as a wolf for years, so he’s had a lot of time to get to know her. When the curse was broken and he finally got to talk to her in person, he’d built up an entire relationship in his head. So for him to just say, “Hey, I’m that wolf that’s been watching you and we’re supposed to be married,” that was a lot to throw at her at once. I think she was a little taken aback. Also, the reality is starting to set in for Jackson: Hayley is pregnant with Klaus’ child. Nothing ever goes the way you plan it. See more
