the originals marbekah rebel charles michael davis claire holt marcel rebekah 'The Originals': Charles Michael Davis ships Mabekah (or Rebel, whatever you call it)Marcel and Rebekah have quite the epic love story on The CW’s “The Originals.” Is it enough to land in legendary territory? Star Charles Michael Davis hopes so.

He tells Zap2it, “I hope it ranks up there with all the great ones — from McSteamy and Doctor Grey to Lois Lane and Clark Kent.”

So yes, in case you were wondering, Davis is a total Marbekah shipper. Or is it Rebel? Whatever you want to call it, he’s into it. But the vampire king of New Orleans and the Original sister haven’t exactly been able to just be together — take their complete failure in 1919, for example — and things aren’t looking great for the present-day couple either.

“That’s going to be the test,” says Davis of whether Marcel will be able to finally let go the hope of a future with Rebekah. “I think it’s a man torn between what he feels like is his purpose and the love of his life. So it’s going to be a tough test.”

So yes, there will be other love interests in the future. “With Marcel, always,” Davis says with a laugh. “Everyone’s a candidate. There are more potential love interests but we’ve got to wait and see what happens with Marcel and Rebekah- — don’t count that out yet.”

“The Originals” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
