PW: I’m guessing that happened after filming Caroline’s torture scene?
Stephen: Yes. That was a really fun scene, and all the credit there goes to Candice Accola. She was the one with small explosives strapped to her arms, fishing bullets out of her skull. I just sat back and got to be creepy [laughs]. That was a fun scene.
On the other hand, Nina spills up about balancing between two characters, Katherine’s different faces, last week’s and this week’s shocking twists, etc. You can find an interesting quote below and go to New York Post for the full story.
PW: Will this finale set up the events of season three the way “Founder’s Day” set up season two?
Nina: It does. There’s not just one – there’s two or three kind of big twists that change the course of everyone’s lives, and they’re unexpected. It affects Damon & Elena hugely. It effects Stefan more than anyone would have imagined. Jeremy’s life is just completely turned around, and almost confusing – you’ll see why soon enough. But it initiates these storylines that will flourish in season three.
Collider‘s Christina Radish has recently chatted on the phone with actor Joseph Morgan. Some of the topics covered: playing the villain, what he’d like to see from Klaus in the future and his attitude towards the Salvatore brothers. Read an extract below and visit Collider’s site for the rest.
What do you think Klaus thinks of the Salvatore brothers? Does he feel that one is more of a thorn in his side than the other?
MORGAN: Maybe. Damon he just thinks is a loose canon. These guys are 160 years old, and he’s been around for probably 10 times that. At worst, they’re a nuisance to him. I don’t think he really sees either of them as a serious threat. Stefan (Paul Wesley) is more predictable for him because he’s in love with Elena (Nina Dobrev) in a way that is honorable. He can predict what Stefan will do and can manipulate that. Damon is a little more difficult because he is so unstacked. He doesn’t seem to value his own life very much, so he will turn up and say, “I killed your witch, and you can kill me if you want,” and just see what happens. That is probably a little more of a nuisance to Klaus, and also a little more impacting as well. He really puts himself out there and Klaus definitely has a fascination with that. I think there is also a fascination with Katherine because of that.
At the Thor premiere, we caught up with Steven R. McQueen, who dished on Jeremy’s upcoming action. “He takes part in the action in a way. That’s all I can reveal.” No, it’s not. “Working with Kat [Graham] has been so great. She is a great actress and an even better person. I have been happy to finally have a girlfriend with a fighting chance at surviving. Jeremy has what we call around the set ‘the kiss of death.’ All of his love interests seem to die on him, but Bonnie is powerful and at least has a fighting chance at surviving all the supernatural villains around town.” The question is: Does Jeremy? Jenna didn’t seem to have too much luck last night, after all.
It’s here, folks. After this Thursday’s airing of “The Sun Also Rises”, there’s just one episode left for season two. In case you’ve been living in a cage for the last couple of weeks, you should know that it’s has the rather ominous title “As I Lay Dying”. Synopsis and stills can be found in the sidebar. And thaks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up that the song used in the promo is called “Ship of Fools” by FirstCom Music. It’s not available for download, but you can still listen to it at the company’s site.
WARNING: There’s a character back, which makes this trailer even more spoilery than usual. Steer clear unless you like spoilers.
May has probably been the busiest month of the year for “Vampire Diaries” stars. They have been giving hundreds of interviews, mainly about the May 12th finale and next season. Below, you’ll find chats with Joseph, Candice, Michael, Zach, Michaela and Lisa. The usual spoiler warning is available once again.
More and more interviews continue to pop up. This week, they have been mostly of Ms. Dobrev. They can be all found below and follow the links for the whole stories. Nina opens up about her “Vampire Diaries” co-stars, the characters she plays and the last two episodes of season 2. There are some pretty spoilery segments, so beware!
• Fans are talking about chemistry between Elena and Elijah (Daniel Gillies). Should we be? “We can obviously tell that there was something between Elijah and Katherine, and there is now something sort of building between Elena and Elijah. Is it the same thing that’s been going on with every guy who’s encountered Elena after having survived Katherine?” Dobrev asks. (She has no answer.) “It’s funny,” she says. “Daniel Gillies is such a sweetheart, and he’s so amazing and so funny, and we’re really, really good friends, so we have a lot of fun on set. That kind of chemistry and friendship definitely can be caught on camera. I’m glad that it plays.”
“Paul Sommers is directing it,” Nina said. “And Paul Sommers is our director of photography, so he’s done every episode since the beginning, except the pilot. So it’s his directorial debut. And it’s really cool and we’re really excited for him.”
The same day, Hollywood Crush has also caught up with the actress. It’s the first interview of her chatting about “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, her latest project. She discusses the script, the cast (Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, etc.) and the movie itself. Go here for the entire article.
Wonder how many viewers tuned in this past Thursday? Actually, they were just as many as last week. Maybe Bonnie has made some kind of spell? LOL. Don’t forget season three is a go. Let’s show our support for the show in the upcoming weeks, everyone!
The CW’s Vampire Diaries was even with last week’s 1.2 adults 18-49 ratings, while Nikita was down two tenths (25%) to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

On the other hand, the real Klaus (you know what I mean) stopped by KTLA Morning News. He dished on his “Vampire Diaries” audition, playing the Original, his previous credits and more. Play the video below to see more from Joseph’s short hair-do (more than in last episode, at least).
