This daytime TV star is making his move to primetime. Days of Our Lives' star Matt Cadeno will debut in episode 15 of The Originals as Cortez, a "callous, smart and manipulative vampire from the Mikaelsons' past who comes to New Orleans seeking vengeance." In an interview with TVLine, executive producer Michael Narducci describes him as, "someone who was sired by a unique circumstance. 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."
