Joseph Morgan’s net worth is estimated to be $3 million dollars. He made most of his money from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. Being the lead of the series, Morgan was paid around $35,000 per episode of “The Originals,” which was just $5,000 lesser to Ian Somerhalder, who starred alongside Morgan. Klaus was introduced in The Vampire Diaries as the ultimate antagonist. However, Klaus’ compassion showed through from time to time while he wreaked havoc on the Mystic Falls crew.
Julie Plec, the show’s creator, thought Klaus’ narrative, as well as the stories of his brothers, were too compelling to ignore.

This was the series concluded after five seasons of Klaus becoming a better guy. Morgan directed three episodes of The Originals throughout its five-season run.
