Joslyn Davis here for ClevverTV and today we've solved a Vampire Diaries mystery that's had fans scratching their heads for the entire season! If you're like us, you've likely been wondering why Elijah is the only member of the original vampire family who does not have a British accent. Thanks to some digging from our good friend Robyn Ross over at TV Guide, we finally have an answer. According to Daniel Gillies, who plays Elijah, he didn't actually expect to be on as many episodes as he has. He explained that when he first landed the role of Elijah, he know he was going to be a very old vampire and a henchman, but he didn't know he'd be a brother in the original family. So there's one explanation as to why he wouldn't have known to give his character an accent. But on that specific note, Daniel Gillies says the answer is quote: "really, really basic." He notes that he made a decision about the character's life prior to coming to Mystic Falls saying that Elijah "would have lived in Europe so there's his cadence," but as far as where else he would have lived, Daniel says quote: "no question, New York City." Then he went on to clarify that it only takes a couple of decades for an accent to truly change -- and this my friends and fellow TVD fans is the answer. Quite simply, Elijah lost his accent or decided to get rid of it. Either way, as far as we know, this lack of a British accent doesn't mean that he's not a part of the family. But, things on this show can change at the drop of a hat, so who knows? For more inside scoop on The Vampire Diaries, make ClevverTV your top source by subscribing to our channel on YouTube.
