Teen Wolf's Daniel Sharman Joining The Originals In Spellbinding Season 2 Role

Daniel Sharman The OriginalsThe list of Teen Wolf stars who have relocated to The CW just keeps on growing, as Daniel Sharman is now set to work his magic on The Originals in Season 2.

Sharman, who played Isaac Lahey on MTV’s werewolf drama, will make his debut on The Originals‘ second season premiere, E! Online is reporting. He’ll play a charming witch named Kaleb, and just like Sharman’s Teen Wolf character, it sounds like Kaleb has a dark family history — and bit of a temper.

Teen Wolf executive producer Jeff Davis recently discussed Sharman’s exit with TVLine:

“He came to me shortly after Crystal [Reed]; he was waffling about it,” Davis explained. “We’d actually convinced him to do Season 3B — I think he was holding out on that as well. He told me he wanted to try other things, maybe do a movie, and I said, ‘OK, if we can’t convince you to stay, you tell me where it should go.’ And he just said, “Please don’t kill me off!” So, there’s a possibility Isaac will return, but we don’t know for sure.”

Teen Wolf fans, will you miss Isaac in Beacon Hills? And will you welcome him to the Big Easy with open arms? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.

    NOOOOOO!!!!! I was so happy that this idiot was leaving teen wolf and now this idiot is going to ruin the originals! Terrible news!

  2. Pedro says:

    I loved his character on Teen Wolf, I almost cried when they announced he was leaving the show. I loved the first half of this season of The Originals, but the back half has been pretty bad, so this casting news suck.
    Thankfully, Julie Plec tends to kill every single supporting character on this goddamn show so hopefully he’ll comeback to TW eventually.

    • pretty bad? have you seen tha last episode? that was mindblowing, like the best CW ever did! and honestly the ressurected witches & the “Original Showdown” in the cemetery storyline(1×11 – 1×16) was awesome, sure after Bex left, there were a couple of bad episodes, but my God, they killing it now on the show, and if Mikael get ressurected in the finale, season 2 is gonna be pretty epic)))

      • Naazneen says:

        I have to agree with you. Things were a little rocky here and there, but the back half of this season has been fantastic. I never watched TW, so im not familiar with this actor. But it looks like he has a strong fanbase, which might bring new eyeballs to TO. So win win.

      • Absolutely agreed. I think CW did an awesome job on their finale’s this season but the originals was definitely my favorite, TVD was up there as well.

  3. spindae2 says:

    Ohhh I like him. He was always so funny to watch in TW, I mean after his father story. A really loveable character. Could be a nice match for Davina! ;-)

  4. Riana says:

    Maybe he’ll be a lost interest for Davina. That girl needs something good to happen to her.

  5. jan says:

    Well, how unfortunate for him. Plec is just as terrible a showrumner as Davis. This isn’t an upgrade in the slightest. But I guess after you’ve wallowed on a subpar MTV show, the CW is practically emmmy worthy.

    • Mariah says:

      Lol! I totally see it as upgrade! It’s cool that he is versatile! Go Daniel! You’re gonna do awesome!

  6. Meredith says:

    Nuts, does this mean I have to start watching the Originals? He’s so pretty!

    • Andy Swift says:

      You should anyway! It’s never disappointing.

      • Sara says:

        I love Daniel but I refuse to watch him on The Originals – it is a horrible show.

        • Sarah G says:

          The Originals is way better than Teen Wolf. And I say that as someone who used to dislike The Vampire Diaries and anything related to it. But after actually watching TVD and The Originals, they are significantly better. Almost everyone I know prefers TVD & TO, which is saying a lot because Teen Wolf is really good as well.

          • kalu says:

            The Originals is a good show, the characters have depth. Especially Klaus. I see it as a story with a long future as far it still has good directing. Teen Wolf has a very good story line but its graphics are not as real and entertaining as The Originals. Daniel has to step up his game if he wants to make an impact in The Originals. Not that B rated role of his in the teen Wolf.
            I wonder why these supernatural series can’t make their characters as fascinating as that of the movie The Underworld.

          • Ria says:

            And The Originals actually continue storylines and solely don’t depend on cute guys with shirtless scenes to save the situation. And actually put stuff together instead of throwing in a bunch of different plotlines.

        • Robert Wood says:

          Only to you the Originals is a bad show, but others love it, perhaps you should give another chance and actually try and follow the whole story rather then a few episodes. Ok so some eps may not be that grea,t remember not everything can be perfect. Those characters were great on TVD so before you totally knock something try and invest some time into it. As for Sharmen on the Originals I am sure he will do a great job, It will be nice to see him grow on that show, but it will be nice for him to return to TW at least for a few eps and do a final rap up on Issac.

        • Carine says:

          Lmao… no! If you’re a fan of Teen Wolf yet you think The Originals is worse you have no taste PERIOD! I don’t care if people have the right to their own opinion fact is Teen Wolf has WAYYY to many plotholes, some overacting, and not enough character depth! TO isn’t perfect either but it’s definitely better! I’m glad he’s joining the cast.

          • Sydney says:

            I have to agree with you there. TW is a good show but it lacks a lot in developing the characters, character depth, and finishing or solving its previous storylines. I feel like the only thing Jeff(producer for Teen Wolf) does is bring in nice looking guys for shirtless scenes and he doesn’t try to look at what’s wrong in the show in the matter. TO actually tries to understand the character and the show gives a lot of depth for all the characters.

  7. Cookiemonster says:

    Hopefully Plec allows him to keep his accent, because damn, he was bad at covering it up on Teen Wolf.

  8. Gerald says:

    Really wanted it to be him not Crystal that died off this year, but now that Crystal is gone I can see why they don’t need him. I thought His character stole all of Stiles lines this season. The writers were using him for comic relief while Dylan went dark. Now Stiles can be Stiles again. Yay!!!!

    • Robert Wood says:

      Crystal Reed, what a joke, she left the show so early because she thinks she this great actress, she’s OK but not great and she also is a new comer, how on earth dose she thinks she can sign a contract with a show that she was to be committed to then want to break it, that shows her immaturity and her fooling herself that she’s all that and everyone will be screaming for her to be on their show, she had not loyalty to TW or to her character how F stupid to leave your show and only bread and butter without having another job lined up, Not saying Sharmon should have left the show and break his contract either, but at least he did not want his character killed off which means he would return at some point to rap things up and he also had another job lined up, he said he was only taking a break. But Crystal that was just plain foolish, who is she really nothing great and I think the Industry made look at her leaving as some one that can’t be trusted to honor her contract. Hopes she enjoy’s her very long vacation.

    • Ashlie says:

      I thought Isaac was hella hilarious!! Love him. I don’t think that he should have been the one to die though. They did it right. Allison died protect in everyone. I just hate how Teen Wolf reduced her role in all of season 3B. Ridiculous. Happy for Daniel’s new role!!! Hope he’ll come back to Teen Wolf when he’s ready to!

    • Sydney says:

      @ Gerald, just because Crystal’s character died on the show, doesn’t mean that the show doesn’t need Daniel’s character. Isaac was used for the comic relief for 3B, but he actually had a role in the show too. Plus, Isaac was actually supposed to have a storyline next season, but Daniel wanted to try other roles right now. I hope you know that Isaac was FAN FAVORITE. And personally I loved his funny lines. I just wish that Jeff (the producer for Teen Wolf) could’ve actually done something with Isaac too and now Daniel left. He’s the ninth f****** person to leave TW. And that’s kind of saying something. Idk what the TW writers are doing but it probably better change because I’ve never seen that many actors leave a show like that. And we lost 4 last season! TW is losing actors to the CW left and right. Don’t get too relieved. Daniel’s in another show(good for him), BUT he asked that his character not get killed off. :))))
      So he can always come back! :)))

  9. Diz says:

    He does nothing for me.

    • Tia says:

      Good for you lol. He does tons for millions of us. Why the hell are you even on a page talking about him then? Lol.

  10. I like Daniel and LUV the Originals as I also watch Vampire Diaries. I felt in this last season of Teen Wolf there wasn’t much to his character as most of the focus as always was on the main four (Stiles, Scott, Allison and Lidya). I am excited to see him on Originals and hope that it lasts the whole season and not a few episodes. I’d also like for him to use his normal accent as I’m a big fan of UK telly and the actors that come from their. The more Brits the better I say.

    • Alisha says:

      I definitely agree with you there! I love his accent and think he’s gonna be great! I watch TVD too by the way :)

  11. Kate says:

    Oh, maybe he gets to use his actual very charming real accent…random warning, he is very good friends with the Carver twins….

    • Ryan says:

      I would KILL for the Carver Twins to show up on “The Originals,” if that’s what you’re insinuating, but they’re too busy in New York with “The Leftovers” so, alas, no such luck.

      • The Leftovers is only 10 episodes and has almost finished filming. So the Carvers would have the time but I doubt Sharman would have enough say to do much about it.

  12. yamshams says:

    I have to give Plec credit for this. It was a very, very smart business move. TO isn’t doing so hot in the ratings (not that the other CW shows are faring much better) and something about the show has seemed dull and lifeless (is ephemeral a good word? Sometimes it’s very good, but it never lasts for more than an episode or two). Not that Sharman can change that necessarily, since it comes down to the writing improving. That said, Sharman will possibly bring a crop of fans with him and that doesn’t hurt things, especially if the show FINALLY gets it’s footing and learns how to hook people over the course of a season and not just with short and elusive plot points.

    • Lizzie says:

      Have you been keeping up with the TW rating. The last season was the highest rating they had and it has grown in fan base. Plus its still campy but they have been getting a lot more positive reviews.

    • Ameera says:

      ‘Ephemeral’ I see what ya did there

    • Ricky says:

      T O’S ratings are around the same as TW’S actually TW’S just may be a bit higher. TO is a good show regardless though. It’s got more depth tk it, especially with the characters. And Daniel’s gonna do great in it!!!

  13. Ryan says:

    Given the fact that it’s Kaleb with a “K,” Sharman’s keeping his accent, and Sharman bears a striking resemblance to Joseph Morgan, there are really only two viable theories: Kaleb is either a long-lost Original or Kaleb is Klaus and Hayley’s son. Problem with the first theory is obvious: how is he still alive and a witch? Vampires can’t be witches but we don’t know if werewolves can. Maybe he’s prolonged his life like we’ve seen other witches do? As for the second theory, I know Hayley thinks the baby is a girl but she could be wrong. All she has to base her theory on is some witchy midwife-ing and no actual medical tests. So the baby’s born, it’s a boy, they name him Kaleb, and the baby rapidly ages, resulting in a vampire-wolf-witch (which is something they keep stressing the baby has witches’ blood – and that’d explain why the Ancestors want it dead: it’s a brand new evolution of supernatural creature, bordering on all-powerful, a true “abomination”). The difficult upbringing would be that he rapidly aged, obviously, unless they totally copy “Angel” and have the baby taken from Klaus and brought back a changed, grown man.

    • Riana says:

      How about they make him a regular, they have a small main cast, so they can afford it and it gives him more job security. Though I do think Sebastian Roche could become a regular for Season 2.

    • Sarah G says:

      Um I’m pretty sure he’s just gonna be a new character….probably not Klaus’s hybrid child and definitely not a long lost Original lol interesting theories though! (Not being sarcastic btw)

  14. Nick says:

    Really happy about this news. I’m not a fan of the actor, so this new role will make sure he’ll make no guest appearances on TW.

  15. Ram510 says:

    I don’t know what Julie is doing with The Originals these days but this back half has been dull and been going in circles for weeks with no real developments. Maybe with Rebekah leaving that sort threw things off and she’s looking to get a fresh start next season but it’s been a snoozefest, which is has cause in the beginning The Originals was must see tv

    • veepster says:

      True, and i we don´t even know why they are fighting for a street in Nola i mean whats so special about it? honestly ugh this show had so much potential and has been nothing but a huge disapointment. And what was with the over dramatic acting in the last episode sheesus! that scene were JM goes rarrrrrrwwwwwwwwwww omg i had to pause for laughs and PT screams at the end!

  16. Ray says:

    This guy has the acting range of a baked potato

    • Beverly says:

      Your comment isn’t even needed. Hater. From what I’ve seen Daniel is a great actor. LMAO at your jealous ass.

  17. Honestly If you’re going to leave a pretty successful show on MTV, at least go to somewhere more successful.

    • Marija says:

      The Originals is successful !

    • Andie says:

      Agreed. Maybe he was just tired of playing a high schooler (he is 27, after all, hilariously over a year older than Tyler Hoechlin who plays Derek and is much older in the show).

      • LOL I didn’t know that. But yeah, I can see that he wanted to take a break from Teen Wolf, I just find it surprising the low retention this show has for it’s cast members.

    • Ariel says:

      LOL. really?? The Originals seems pretty successful to me.

    • Emmy says:

      Um, the Originals is successful. There’s going to be a season 2. The ratings are around the same as TW’s. At least they actually work on their characters, unlike TW tbh. TW knows how to bring in nice looking guys and shirtless scenes. But development much? Nah, I don’t think so. Good for Daniel Sharman. He’ll do awesome.

  18. newyork13 says:

    Of course I can welcome him to the big easy, it’s freaking Daniel Sharman. If he’s evil I may not be to impressed, but it’s Daniel who is Isaac so I will love him no matter what. <3

  19. Marija says:

    Omg ! I watch teenwolf and the originals ! Im sad that he left teenwolf, but im glad he is joining the originals ! Xxx

  20. mike says:

    He should be great on the originals and to those who think he had no acting skills– Sorry you don’t get cast as a main with no skill. teenwolf never let him be a main hence his desire to leave. and who said Teen wolf is successful it’s viewership is on the downside it has maybe 1 season left. Daniel did the smart move by jumping to The CW.

    • Andie says:

      Isn’t Teen Wolf the most successful show MTV has ever had? I feel like they’ll stay on as long as Jeff Davis, Tyler Posey, and Dylan O’Brien stick around.

      • Armani says:

        Honestly, who knows? I feel like Teen Wolf is losing all of their talents to CW.

        • Ameera says:

          CW has been canceling shows left and right because of low ratings(starcrossed and the tomorrow people…). CW aint got nothing on teen wolf, just sayin

          • Personally social media shouldn't count says:

            CW cancels their shows because of low social media and international appeal . The network even said, as well as the Tomorrow People did in ratings, it didn’t have social media interactions and it wasn’t an international success

          • Sammi says:

            Then why the hell are all the actors leaving TW then??? And 4 of them from one season, season 3B to be exact??? Obviously CW is offering something that MTV isn’t. It’s MTV. C’mon. I don’t think ratings for CW are a problem lol. I’m happy for Daniel. Jeff (TW’S producer) can’t even give his characters depth and storyline consistency. Jeff didnt choose to explore Daniel’s character more and that’s honestly sad. I’m glad that Daniel took advantage of looking at other roles even though he can come back to TW since they didn’t kill his character off. But if a show like TW can’t keep several several actors like that, the writers need to look at themselves.

      • Kimi says:

        Idk about that. Season 4 is looking kind of messy. Plus TW keeps losing they’re actors to the CW. So….

    • Angie says:

      I agree completely.

    • Angel says:

      I AGREE COMPLETELY! Jumping to CW was a smart move! Good for you Daniel!

  21. jimmy woo says:

    I love Daniel Sharman. I’m really glad he is joining The Originals. Also, glad he may come back to Teen Wolf.

    Good all around.

  22. Tina says:

    Yeah! That’s great news!! I’ve been hoping that he would reappear on my screen again!! I’ll miss him on Teen Wolf, but I think that this will be good for him and he’ll do awesome!! Plus, he can always come back to Teen Wolf if he wants. I’m excited!!!

  23. Ameera says:

    I watch both teen wolf and the originals, so this is mimdblowing for me. My brain is gonna need some time to turn daniel sharman from the lovable abused beta wolf into a possibly lovable witch. Because of this there is no doubt…im so gonna watch season 2 of the originals. This should really help with their ratings.

  24. Reetah says:

    I LOVE Daniel sharman and I am so happy that he is going to be on the originals… When I heard he was leaving teenwolf, I knew I was done with teenwolf but I am excited that I still get to see his face on ‘the originals’… Can’t wait for season 2… Yay!

    • Ashlie says:

      Yeah I’m not too excited about season 4 of Teen Wolf. Especially after finding out that Daniel left. There’s gonna be way too many new characters next season, Kate’s back, a bunch of plot holes (i.e. Malia). Yeah no. But I’m excited to catch up on the originals, especially now that Daniel is joining for season 2!!! Can’t wait for October!

    • Misty says:

      I totes agree!!!

  25. Lons says:

    I am excited to know that Daniel Sharman is joining TO! Please keep his accent!

  26. Chuck8755 says:

    Teenwolf is one of most amazing shows I’ve ever seen. I liked Isaac and will miss him but with Scott,Derek, and Lydia onboard the show won’t miss a beat.

    • Annie says:

      I guess. TW keeps losing their actors though. ESPECIALLY to CW. And TW doesn’t have a lot of character depth in it as well as having a crap load of plotholes with it now. Especially with season 4. And seeing as the way TW is going lol, I’m glad that Daniel moved to a show that can actually do something with its characters and actually give the character development and depth. So I think that going to the CW is a smart choice.

  27. Deborah says:

    im a big fan of both shows i will miss and welcome him in his roles on both show i cant wait for both to come back on tv with their new seasons

  28. Tasneem says:

    i was so dissapointed when i found out that Isaac has left Teen Wolf but at least we get to see him in the Originals – I DO however hope that Isaac will return sooner rather than later.

  29. Gillian says:

    I loved him on Teen Wolf and I am very happy that he will be The Originals! He is amazing!

  30. Gillian says:

    He is amazing! I loved him on Teen Wolf and I am sure he will be amazing on The Originals!

  31. Cora says:

    I love Isaac on teen wolf and I think he will do amazing on The Originals! I love you Daniel Sharman! Have fun with life I hope you come back soon!! And don’t listen to haters because their “purpose” is to break others down when they know they will do amazing things one day!

  32. Cora says:

    And yes my name is Cora :)

  33. Alisha says:

    I was really sad when I heard isaac was leaving teen wolf but i can’t wait to see him on the originals as I love that show too! Hope he doesn’t get killed off too soon though.

  34. mina says:

    NOOOOOOOO I LOVED ISAAC. HES MY FAVORITE CHARACTER AFTER STILES. HED BETTER COME BACK PLZZZ
