Joseph Morgan stars in "The Vampire Diaries" on The CW as Klaus, one of the "Originals" — the very first vampire family — and the most powerful vampire in existence. Season 3 will reveal Klaus's family history and his reasons for wanting Stefan (Paul Wesley) on his side.

On the big screen, Morgan stars in "Immortals," opposite Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke and Luke Evans, as Lysander.

Joseph Morgan was born in London and spent his childhood with his family in Swansea, Wales, where he attended Morriston Comprehensive School before moving back to London in his late teens to study acting at the Central School of Speech and Drama.

Upon graduation from Central School, Morgan was hired by acclaimed film director Peter Weir ("Gallipoli," "The Year of Living Dangerously," "Dead Poets Society," "The Truman Show") to costar opposite Russell Crow in "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World." Soon after completion of that film, director Oliver Stone hired Morgan for a strong supporting role in the feature film "Alexander."

After "Alexander," Morgan spent time working on stage in the West End of London, as well as starring as Troy in the first series of the Sky One UK television series "Hex." He also has starred in the BBC miniseries "The Line of Beauty." Other television credits include the series "Doc Martin" and "Mansfield Park," in which he played the character of William, alongside star Billie Piper.

Morgan's big break came in 2009, when he was cast in the leading role in the miniseries "Ben Hur." Based on the classic novel and film, "Ben Hur" was directed by Steve Shill. In 2010, Morgan was cast in a co-starring role in the independent drama "Drift," alongside Thomas Dekker, Jeremy Piven and Mira Sorvino.

Morgan's most recent film roles includ the independent drama "Angels Crest," and the big-budget film "Immortals," in which he co-stars with Mickey Rourke.
