when vampire marcel (charles michael davis) made his appearance in season 1 of the originals (2013-current), a lot of female fans lost their hearts to the handsome bloodsucker. but unlike his vampire character, 30-year-old charles is a pretty laid-back guy with a love for cooking and martial arts.
at age 10, charles was arrested for shoplifting – he tried to steal a pair of cheap headphones. when asked, he told the shop owner that he was nine because he thought that he’d get a lighter sentence. luckily, he was never charged. he started modelling in his early teens, before grabbing a small guest role in noah’s arc (2005-2006) in 2005 as an interviewer. charles loves spending time in the kitchen and says that if he wasn’t an actor, he would’ve ended up being a chef. who’d he love to work with on a show? the following (2013-current) star kevin bacon. charles is a bit of a health freak and lists his favourite drink as water. he’s also a vegan and can’t say no to almond butter and pistachios. he keeps fit with muay thai, yoga and hip-hop dancing. fans might be surprised to learn that charles is also a serious ballroom dancer. he even attended a salsa course in his first year at college in 2002. besides acting and modelling, charles is also skilled at painting and likes to build his own furniture. he might be a hollywood hunk but you won’t find charles grabbing tabloid headlines for all the wrong reasons – he’s an extremely religious guy who goes to church every weekend. he also doesn’t drink. while the actor is currently single, he says that he’d one day love to have triplets. otherwise, he’ll settle for one boy and one girl.
