Michael Trevino attended a Tyler Shields photo exhibit last week. There, he met Hollywood Life. The two talked about the reason why Tyler would probably stick around, the dynamic between him and Caroline and Michael’s wishes for them as a couple. He also mentions the charity he’s working for right now and Chloe, whose idea it actually was.
Are Matt and Tyler going to be friends again? Do you miss filming those buddy/buddy scenes with Zach Roerig?
I really do. I miss working with Zach. And also Steven [R. McQueen.] I think they’ll be friends. Like he said in the last episode, he’s by himself. His mother’s gone, he lost his sister. … Who else is he going to turn to? He realizes Tyler means well, but obviously, given the circumstances of the moon coming every now and then, you can’t control that.
With tomorrow’s EPIC season finale, I bet Kristin‘s email was full of “Vampire Diaries” questions. She chose to answer two of them (both related to Damon) in E! Online’s latest spoiler chat. If you haven’t watched episode 20 yet, they’re extremely spoilery for you. And if you’re a fan of Damon and Elena together, the second one will make you pant for next episode even more.
aka_savannah: Will this partial werewolf bite kill my poor heart-broken Damon? #TVD
Just from knowing what we know about how TV shows work—like how networks don’t let producers kill off lead male characters—we’re gonna go ahead and say…no, Damon will not die from the werewolf bite.
lauren_delena: Any Damon and Elena finale scoop? Will they finally kiss? Thanks!
We will say that because Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is going crazy over his werewolf bite, he is capable of doing anything and saying anything. All bets are off and anything can happen when an off-his-rocker vampire is on the loose!
Are you still processing this week’s cliffhangers? We know we are. Last episode literally turned our world upside down. There was so much blood and death in 42 minutes that we almost lost hope that “the sun would also rise”. Dobrev and Canning (who were on the first row for the sacrifice) sat down to discuss the most major events and consequences. The articles posted below contain HUGE spoilers for international fans who haven’t caught up on the show yet.
“It’s going to be really cool to see where it goes. I mean there’s so many possibilities of where it could go. The storyline has opened up to so many different things now,” she says. “That also means there’s more flashbacks, which is fun. I love doing the flashbacks, being in a different world and a different era.”
TVLINE | What’s next for you? Any immediate plans?
I actually have a few things that I’m doing right now. I’m working on a short [film] that’s a noir piece, and I’m really excited about that. I also am doing a film at the end of this month for Lifetime called The Hunt for the I-5 Killer, which is based on true events. I’ve been auditioning, but I just got back to Vancouver a week ago, so that’s just a huge move to deal with.
Following her interviews with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, Gabrielle Compolongo has posted her next video from the “Vampire Diaries” set. In it, she chats with Katerina Graham. The two discuss her character’s relationship with Elena’s little brother, the possibility of seeing Lucy again, etc. See part one below and go to TV Fanatic for the other two.
Plus, Show Tracker has recently interviewed Julie Plec. The writer previews what’s to happen in the Klaus Chapter. She also comments on two of the show’s triangles – Stefan/Elena/Damon and Matt/Caroline/Tyler. Head over to LA Times for more of their chat.
“There’s one weapon, two originals. I wonder what’s going to happen,” Plec mused coyly during an interview with Showtracker. “That is their big conundrum. As soon as we get back from the hiatus, we’re going to start asking that question and seeing what our characters decide to do about it will be pretty big.”
Yes, I’m alive and terribly sorry for the recent lack of updates! Real life kept me busy and wouldn’t let me post. Fortunately, it’s all fine now, so I’m planning to catch up with all the news. So, expect many posts with in the next couple of days. I hope you haven’t forgotten me.
Nina Dobrev has done a cover shoot for the latest issue of Teen Vogue. The magazine has some goodies for her fans, such as a 2-page interview and a behind the scenes peek. Nina comments on the difficulty of portraying Elena and Katherine, media attention, etc. And thanks to dailygleeks via ontd_tvdiaries for providing us with scans (you need to join the community in order to view posts). In case you don’t have a LiveJournal account, you can still enjoy the prettiness at Teen Vogue’s site.
Not that she’s complaining. Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, but raised in Toronto, Nina landed her big break just out of high school in 2006 as teen mom Mia in Degrassi: The Next Generation and describes herself as your typical overachiever. “I wanted to be the jock, and I wanted to be a dancer and actress,” she says of her time at a competitive performing-arts high school in Toronto. “I was also a gymnast and very academically driven. I always had a lot on my plate and was really overwhelmed. Not much has changed—I’m constantly trying to one-up myself and raising the stakes.” She stops and smiles, adding, “Ha! No pun intended.”
MTV recently caught up with Nina Dobrev to talk about Valentine’s Day. She mentions Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” and her actual opinion on February 14th. Also, she speculates on how Elena and Katherine would celebrate it. Play the video to learn her answers and MTV has a short article. Thanks, Vampire-Diaries.net!
Finally, a bunch of chats have surfaced today. First, Daniel Gillies did an interview for TV Fanatic. He dishes about his character and the deal he made with Elena, Klaus (a.k.a. Joseph Morgan) as well as future projects. Visit their site for the entire interview.
Laura Prudom sat down with Ian Somerhalder to discuss all things “Vampire Diaries”. The hottie answers questions about emotional (and evil) Damon, his interactions with Andie and Jules and Damon’s part in the upcoming vampire-werewolf war. He also gives some scoop on episode 15 “The Dinner Party” (featuring flashbacks) and his Ian Somerhalder foundation. The full chat is available at TV Squad.
Mandi Bierly from EW goes to Steven R. McQueen for spoilers. And he doesn’t let us down either. Steven comments on Jeremy’s relationship with Bonnie and John Gilbert. Plus, he tells us whether we’ll see him by Damon’s side again any time soon. The article is up over at Inside TV.
Crushable: Wow, you can combine anything these days. Well, as someone who plays a psychic on TV, can you make some predictions about the upcoming seasons of your favoirte shows? Kat: I really love The Office. I know Steve Carell is leaving, but I think the characters are really strong right now, and it’s my favorite show, so I think it will keep going on. Vampire Diaries is going to take huge turn, and people are going to be shocked the way things develop so quickly. For life? I predict I’ll get involved with more charities and continue to do human rights activism, so yeah…I predict it’s going to a really great holiday season!
Q) What are the recent projects that you are working on?
A) Right now it is all about “The Vampire Diaries.” We’re in kind of an intense shooting schedule here in Atlanta. We just started shooting our fifth episode so everybody is just kind of gung-ho about our second season. I’ve also been doing a lot of promoting a Canadian indie film I did last year in between shooting “The Vampire Diaries” pilot and the show being picked up, with me moving to Atlanta. I shot a Canadian gothic period piece that has been doing very well in Canada and the film festival circuits, which is called Black Field.
Q) What is new this season on “The Vampire Diaries” and with your character Jenna Sommers?
A) I think one of the biggest things that the viewers are looking forward to is the return of Katherine. You have seen the tense moment at the end of season one and that will definitely be addressed in the first episode. I think that’s really going to effect every character. We’ve seen Jenna let Katherine (Nina Dobrev) into the house so she’s sort of been a catalyst for everything that is about to go down. I think that is going to play a big part for Jenna, how she is going to deal with Katherine being around and her not knowing who she is. Matt Davis and I were also working together at the later part of the first season and we’ve seen a lot of stop and start with a relationship developing between them. They got stuck, but there is so much chemistry between them. There are so many other factors that aren’t letting things be easy for them. We get to see things grow between them, maybe in a positive way, but I don’t think it will ever be easy for them. The fact that Alaric, unbeknownst to Jenna, has an alliance with a group of vampires that her niece is involved with…That alone puts a stress on the relationship since there are a lot of secrets.
Sherwood Park’s got its very own blood sucker, and she’s getting stronger by the day.
Well, OK, she’s not a vampire, but Sara Canning, a Sherwood Park native, is about to start taping the second season of Vampire Diaries, which airs on the CTV in Canada and the CW Network in the United States.
Canning plays Jenna Sommers in the TV show, an aunt and caregiver of Elena and drug user Jeremy, who go and live with her after their parents died in a car accident.
But in a world filled with vampires, witches, and other potentially supernatural beings, alluded to throughout the first season, Canning believes that her character will continue to stay oblivious to the fact that she is surrounded by blood-thirsty creatures.
“The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev on acting, her character, Elena, and why she loves Atlanta.
Nina Dobrev didn’t exactly emerge from out of nowhere to land the highly coveted role of heroine Elena Gilbert on “The Vampire Diaries.” She’d previously spent four years on the Canadian teen drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation” and had small parts in films such as “Away From Her” and “Repo! The Genetic Opera.” But the show (which is filmed in Decatur and Covington) was a huge step up the Hollywood ladder for the 21-year-old Dobrev, who clearly relishes the challenges The CW network hit presents. We recently spoke with the Bulgarian-born, Toronto-bred beauty about her acting background, her ATL food addictions and what fans can expect from season two of “The Vampire Diaries.”
JEZEBEL: You got into the arts at a very early age. What initially sparked your interest in performing?
NINA DOBREV: I was always a really outgoing kid. My parents didn’t know what to do with me because I was so high energy, and my friends and I were always putting on little plays at home. I started doing gymnastics and ballet, so I was always performing in some way. Then I went to a performing arts high school in Canada where we studied music, dance and theater, and I realized that that was where I was happiest.
