Over at Entertainment Weekly, Katerina Graham gushes about Klaus (after all, he’s the star of the season). She gives some hints about his arrival and shares her opinion on the actor. Read on to find it out and visit Inside TV’s Spoiler Room for more on your favourites.
Vampire Diaries scoop, please! Preferably on the upcoming arrival of Klaus! — Alison
To add to what EW’s Mandi Bierly already dug out of Julie Plec, Kat Graham (who plays Bonnie) says the hype about Klaus is not an overstatement by any means. “I think [the viewers will] be just as freaked out as we all get when we’re in his scenes,” she says. “I hope that toward the end of the season, and into next season, that fans are really able to distinguish the difference between the characters and the actors, because he’s doing such a phenomenal job as Klaus, I want people to really see that and not be like, ‘Oh I hate you, you’re such an a**hole trying to kill Elena!’ He’s just an actor.…By the end of the season he might be either really hated or really loved.”
Zap2it‘s @cadlymack continues to please “Vampire Diaries” fans with her set reports. She posted her chat with Sara Canning last night. The actress opens up about the fall-out of Isobel’s arrival, the men in Jenna’s life, which way she’s going to go, etc. You can watch the interview over at Zap2it.
“It’s kind of hard to say what needs to happen now, or what prominent piece of story needs to happen that would fix that. I think we would see some significant Alaric and Jenna time in terms of them addressing their relationship and defining it.”
Just an hour after Know Thy Enemy’s airing, Carina released another on-set interview. This time, it features Zach Roerig. He comments on Matt’s growth, the recent events around him and his reaction to Tyler’s impending return. Play the video below for more scoop and Zach’s blue eyes.
Spoiler TV has recently revealed the CW primetime schedule for the entire season. Thank God, there won’t be any other breaks this year until after the finale. The schedule also shows episode 20 title – “The Last Day”. Last dance, last day… poor Mystic Falls residents, I would say!
Vampire-Diaries.net reported the last unknown season 2 episode title last night. According to them, episode 21 will be the one where “The Sun Also Rises”. Vee also let her imagination loose and shared her thoughts on the recently revealed titles. Check them all out here. Some really interesting references there!
Even though the show is on too-long hiatus this month, we can’t complain of lack of interviews. Various reporters have talked to the cast lately, such as Show Tracker, Zap2it‘s Carina Mackenzie and Hollywood Crush. We gathered all the articles in one post for your sanity. Check out the best quotes below and click on the links for the entire stories. And if you’d like to ask the writers a question yourself, head over to Vampire Diaries’ official Facebook page.
PW: Right, especially when that choice involves suffering from a fictional malady.
Dawn: Totally. What’s funny to me is that the writers are really showing what it’s doing to Damon. In season one, he was compelling Vicki and it became disastrous. He may have entered this situation thinking it could be a similar case, but it’s turning out much differently for Damon, which has been an interesting turn. He’s not just able to shrug her off like he thought he could. I can’t wait for you guys to see episode 19 – there’s a lot of Andie and Damon in that one. Some big things go down.
That constant dark cloud over Mystic Falls means no one is safe forever, not even the show’s main trio of Elena (Nina Dobrev), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). “I think that there are people who are safe for quite a long time,” Plec says. “But the rule always applies. Anything can happen at any time, and not everybody’s going to like it, and not everyone’s going to be happy about it.” While Elena, Stefan and Damon are probably not going anywhere soon, it does seem likely there will be more casualties when the series returns April 7. “I think we’ve got about 20 characters working at this point. Yes, there will be a percentage of them that will not make it to season three.”
For the last time until April, Chris Mollere (@cmollere) was kind enough to tweet all songs heard in Thursday night’s “The House Guest”. We love you, Chris! Speaking of music, s.o.stereo, Caroline’s musical “back up”, are on Twitter, so be sure to give them a follow.
TV by the Numbers also revealed 216 ratings. Unfortunately, “Vampire Diaries” was down, gaining 2.94 million viewers this week. Go here to check out the overnight ratings.
Both The Vampire Diaries and Nikita were down a tenth with adults 18-49 and adults 18-34.
Finally, Blood Falls uploaded some more stills and behind the scenes photos from episode 16 to their gallery. See them all over at their site. To the ones who haven’t seen the episode yet – beware of spoilers!
With yesterday”s “Vampire Diaries” episode being the last until April, lots of interviews were released. The press talked to various cast members, particularly Candice. There are chats with Sara Canning and Zach Roerig, too. We brought all articles together, so you don’t lose your mind. Follow the links above the extracts for the entire stories. Thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net (@tvdnews) and Vampire Diaries Online (@tvdfansonline) for the heads up!
TVLINE | What can Caroline fans look forward to in the next few episodes?
Tyler (played by Michael Trevino) has just left, so Caroline is just working on everything being OK. He had been consuming her time — obviously she had his back and he didn’t have hers , and he’s been the one standing in between her opportunities with Matt (played by Zach Roerig). So she’s trying to get back to herself.
“She started having these inklings and mistrust creeping in largely due to what John has been mumbling,” says Sara Canning. “Jenna is straight up with Alaric and says, ‘If this is going to work you need to be honest with me’ and he really doesn’t have anything to say.”
Zach scoffs. “If Tyler comes back, he’ll have much more to deal with than just this love triangle. There will be a whole other can of worms. He’s not going to be a threat to the romance aspect of it, I don’t think,” he says. “Honestly if Matt and Caroline can just get through everything that happens to them in these next couple episodes, they can get through just about anything.”
Io9 has a marvellous interview with “Vampire Diaries” writer Andrew Chambliss. He has worked on many episodes, such as “Bad Moon Rising”, “Katerina” and “The Dinner Party”. Andrew discusses almost everything, uncluding his sci-fi/fantasy obsession, the different shows he has written for through the years, etc. Thanks, Vampire-Diaries.net!
It seems like you’ve often been one of the younger (youngest?) writers in the room. Has that been a challenge?
I was pretty lucky to get staffed on Bionic Woman as young as I was (I think I was the youngest by two or three years), but I wasn’t treated any differently because of my age. In my head, I might have been wondering if people took me less seriously because I was the youngest writer in the room but at the end of the day a good idea is a good idea so the room or a good EP isn’t going to ignore it because of the age of the person who pitches it. But all that anxiety was on me, and I tried to squash that as quickly as possible so I wouldn’t psych myself out. I definitely think that I’ve gained a lot more confidence in the past three or four years but I think that comes more from experience rather than getting older.
Question: Got any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? —Ellie
Ausiello: Thursday’s episode is not to be missed. It boasts two deaths, one super-romantic Matt/Caroline scene, and — in the hour’s final minutes — a doozy of a twist.
Vampire Diaries Web has some more stills (+ a behind the scenes photo from “Rose”) from episode 8, 11, 15 and 16 (upcoming) of season two. Click on each image to access the galleries, respectively. WARNING: “The Dinner Party” folder (third picture) contains major spoilers for the ones, who haven’t watched the episode yet.
Trailer for next week’s episode 16 was revealed, thanks to The CW. Spoiler warning for the ones, who haven’t seen “The Dinner Party” yet. Head over to VampireSite.net for 216’s official description and go here for stills. The February 24th episode will be the last one before another hiatus comes. The show will most likely return April 7th (no official word yet). Thanks to Vampire Diaries Online for the heads up!
According to Deadline, Joseph Morgan has officially singed to play Klaus. TV Line‘s Ausiello dropped the bombshell that the actor was negotiating for the role earlier this month. You may recognize Joseph from “Master and Commander” and “Alexander”. Check out the full report over at Deadline.
Last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries was certainly a tough one for Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning). Not only did she find herself distrusting her beau Alaric, but then he went and all but confirmed his streak of dishonesty regarding Isobel. And as it turns out, it’s only going to get worse for Elena’s still-clueless guardian.
“We’ll see her deal with it in her Jenna-like way. She’ll deal with some crazy stuff in next week’s episode, too, actually. Something that will shake her up even worse,” Canning teases.
Episode 16 stills have been released as well. A few images can be found here and head over to VDW (these guys are just awesome, aren’t they?) for more HQs. Thanks to Nina Dobrev Network for the heads up! SPOILERS TO FOLLOW: As fan theories say, it’s not just Elena in the stills. They suppose Katherine’s set free and she’s the “house guest”. Nina’s look, expression and attitude in the first few stills are very Katherine-esque, to begin with. More to it, she’s wearing leggings as well as holding a whiskey tumbler which is so not Elena. So, we have every reason to think the b-tch is back. However, I believe it’s Elena here since Bonnie wouldn’t exactly smiling in Ms. Pierce’s company. Well done, TVD family!
