The Originals Matt Cedeño

The Originals Casts Days' Matt Cedeño as Shadow From the Mikaelsons' Past

As if the Mikaelsons weren’t already up to their perfect jawlines in unwelcome guests, here comes another one.

Matt Cedeño (Devious Maids, Days of Our Lives) will arrive in Episode 15 of The Originals‘ current season, TVLine has learned, playing a “callous, smart and manipulative vampire from the Mikaelsons’ past who comes to New Orleans seeking vengeance.”

“Cortez is someone who was sired by a unique circumstance,” executive producer Michael Narducci tells TVLine. “He has a very interesting perspective, particularly on Klaus. He’s of Klaus’ sire line, but he was not sired by Klaus. He’s a very intriguing character, one of the most dangerous folks we’ve met.”

The Originals returns with new episodes on Friday, Jan. 29 at 9/8c on The CW. Drop a comment with your thoughts on Cedeño’s casting below.
