Nina Dobrev teases the finale, Daniel Gillies on Elena’s influence + Julie spills up to TV Guide

Amy Wilkinson (@amymwilk) has posted her latest dose of “Vampire Diaries” goodies. In this video interview, Nina teases what to expect from “As I Lay Dying”, which, according to her, prepares the audience for season 3. The entire article is up over at Hollywood Crush.

PopWrap‘s Jarett Wieselman continues his “Vampire Diaries” interview series with the following chat. In it, Daniel Gillies discusses Elijah’s personality and humanity (or what’s left of it) as well as his connection with Elena. Check out an excerpt here and head over to NYPost for the whole material.

PW: So you think there might be something more to their relationship?
Daniel: There’s no question that he’s enchanted by Elena but it’s not as simplistic as needing to be with this girl — I just think he’s more fascinated by her as a study in the potential of what a person can be. I think that if he does survive [the finale] and leaves Mystic Falls, I don’t think he can stay away because she’s too much of a miracle for him. There’s something in her that’s also in him – I don’t mean to be grotesque about it and frame this in a romantic context, but there’s a spiritual quality they share and that’s going to be very difficult for him to not return to.

Finally, Robyn Ross has released part one of her exclusive interview with Julie Plec. The producer and writer explains the (bloody) events around the Sacrifice and leave no clueless innocence, and shares her expectations for the May 12th finale. Visit TV Guide for more and come back tomorrow for the next part!

The penultimate episode was epic, how can the finale compare?
Plec: The last episode was clearly the season finale of our mythology storyline. We went all out and that was as deliberate choice knowing that the story we wanted to tell in our season finale is actually the emotional resolution of the season. We also want to really give the audience a window to where we’re going in Season 3, a taste of what the series is going to be like as we move forward.

PopWrap’s interviews with Nina Dobrev & Stephen Amell: “It’s survival of the fittest.”

Looks like it’s “Vampire Diaries” week at PopWrap. After posting his interview with former guest star Stephen Amell, Jarett Wieselman has published his Nina Dobrev chat today. The actor, who played Brady, comments on filming “Daddy Issues” with Candice Accola, auditioning for Mason and Elijah as well as his other projects.

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.

Nina visits KTLA Morning News + Paul on Ryan Seacrest this morning

A few hours before The Sun Also Rises’s airing last Thursday, Nina Dobrev swang by KTLA Studios. She dished about Paul’s rumoured marriage, mythology on the show, the Catch VD campaign, etc. Thanks bunches to cristinababyblue for uploading!

Paul Wesley himself has also been interviewed recently. Actually, more recently than you’d think. This morning, the actor was featured on “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”. He was the first guest of his “Hunt Week”, starting today. See what Paul had to say about his character below and listen to the entire audio at Ryan’s official site.

When asked about his character Paul says “I think he’s [Stefan] is a good guy, but I think he has some darkness inside of him…I’ve done some bad things.” He admits though, “I think it’s always more fun to play the bad boy. You will see more ‘bad Stefan.’ I think you will be very happy with it!”

Nina Dobrev and Sara Canning on last episode’s shocking bloodbath (Zap2it, MTV & TV Line interviews)

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.”

TV Line: Vampire Diaries Actress Opens Up About Her Big [SPOILER] Scene: ‘It Was Really Emotional’

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.

Inside TV: Nina Dobrev’s five teases for tonight’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ (and one big one for the season finale)

• 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.”

Hollywood Crush: Nina Dobrev Says Tonight’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ Ep Will Be ‘Very Sad, Epic’

“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.”
