Warhouse: New Interview With Joseph Morgan
What attracts you to a character?
I’m always attracted by a good character arc. A journey that changes the character from the beginning of the film to the end. Warhouse certainly had that. It was also a wonderful opportunity to explore how far someone would go when they were totally alone, when they had no one there to judge them.
This film goes into some pretty dark places psychologically, how do you prepare for that?
I listen to music that has emotional significance to me. I allow myself to be absorbed by the scenario. Mostly it’s convincing myself the situation I’m in is real and then allowing the madness to emerge. We all have a little crazy inside, over the years I’ve learnt how to access it.
Do you think you could survive in a house like that?
I would find it pretty difficult to survive in the Warhouse. I like my alone time but I also crave regular human contact and that is what would drive me mad I think. A J Budd has his training as a royal marine commando to fall back on – Improvise, adapt, overcome. For me it would be much harder.
I have to admit, I am a huge Vampire Diaries fan, and when Klaus was introduced I didn’t think he could live up to the hype, but you have created an incredible character. Please tell me you’ll be back for Season 4?
I don’t think they could get rid of an indestructible 1,000 year old hybrid that easily
