Charles Michael Davis, the hot vampire from The CW's "The Originals" is celebrating his 31st birthday on Tuesday, 1 December.

Much like a bottle of tasty red wine, Charles is getting better with age. In celebration of his birthday, we have compiled some of the best lines Charles' character 'Marcel Gerard' has said in the bloody, action-packed series "The Originals", along with some of his cute photos with co-stars.

Always and Forever (S01E01)

Marcel Gerard: Well, if I'd known you were coming back to town, if I had a heads-up...
Klaus Mikaelson: What, Marcel? What would you have done?
Marcel Gerard: [happily] I'd have thrown you a damn parade!

Sinners and Saints (S01E05)

Rebekah Mikaelson: You do not want to end up on the wrong side of me.
Marcel Gerard: Oh, Rebekah Mikaelson, you do not want to end up in the wrong side of me.

Dance Back from the Grave (S01E12)

Marcel: How long you gonna hate me?
Rebekah: You left me in a box for 52 years. Twice that seems like a good start.

Alive and Kicking (S02 E02)

Marcel Gerard (To Elijah): First thing I learned living with your family is wherever you people go, threats and bloodshed seem to follow. So just stay out of the way and try not to kill anyone.

Marcel Gerard: Gia has proven herself. She knows what she's getting into. So she's gonna be the first one that I turn. Everybody else, first, I need to be sure that you can handle moving up a notch on the food chain, the emotional ups and downs, solitude and bloodlust. Imagine hearing the sound of a heart beating, beating, beating and wanting more than anything to feed. That's what it's like to be a vampire. It's not for everybody. Some folks, well, let's just say, it brings out the worst in them.
