More chat goodness: Joseph Morgan, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino & more

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.

Spoilers galore: Klaus’s ritual, extreme loss of life + the year of the Originals

This season’s finale is coming closer and closer. The closer we get, the more chats surface. As we wrote yesterday, there was a press screening of last night’s episode on Wednesday. Most of the stories contain major spoilers for it (as well as the rest of the season), so I advise you not to read them unless you’ve seen it. This time, I decided to post just links to the articles since there are plenty of them and I feel like you’ll get a headache if there are segments from each one.

Interview round-up: TVD cast talks season 3, Zap2it sits down with Ian + Steven, Kat & Candice chats

I’m back and so are interviews! In anticipation of this week’s episode, a few chats have been released. Enjoy some excerpts below, more can be found at the links above them. They obviously don’t contain any spoilers for those who have already watched “The Last Dance”, but the rest must be careful.

TV Guide: Vampire Diaries’ Katerina Graham: “If Bonnie Ever Went Down, She’d Go Down with a Fight”

As previews show, Bonnie chooses to confront Klaus and prove that her powers are no joke. Still, Graham says, she’s not immune to typical teen insecurities. “Bonnie is filled with fear. She’s still only a 17-year-old girl and [is] scared, but is able to move forward and face her fears. That’s where her head is at: She can be scared out of her mind, but she presses forward and will do what she has to do.”

Spoilers galore: Vampire Diaries in EW, Plec spills to TV Guide & TV Fanatic, PopWatch previews Damon’s bedroom + more

This week has brought “Vampire Diaries” fans a lot of scoop. First, Mega Buzz posted an interesting snippet from Julie Plec saying “the vampire-werewolf conflict is going to go from a simmer to a boil.” The executive producer also comments on Tyler and Jules’s relationship status, visit TV Guide for the entire story.

Julie Plec talked to one more TV Guide reporter - Carita Rizo. In Julie’s chat with her (which you can find here), she discusses Klaus (how surprising, isn’t it?), how the curse will affect Rose and everyone else as well as what’s ahead for Damon and Elena.

Gabrielle Compolongo posted part two of her interview with Plec. The writer compares Klaus vs. Elijah, teases the Originals, the Katherine-stuck-in-the-tomb situation, Luka and his dad, etc. Plus, she answers the question whether Elena and Damon will ever get together. Head over to TV Fanatic to find out, but first, read on to understand what you can look forward to when the show returns.

In a summation, what can you tell us about the second half of season two?
We’ve set a lot of things in motion, and we’re going to come to the end of what we’re calling our werewolf chapter, which will really take that story to a really dark place and really change a lot of characters’ lives, not necessarily in a good way. We are going to dig deeper into the secrets of our new witches and what Bonnie’s role is going to be in their story, and of course, it’s all about the fear of the impending Klaus, and who’s going to be fighting on who’s side, who’s bond is with who, who’s going to betray whom, and is this curse going to be lifted at the hands of a sacrifice that would kill Elena. We’re full steam ahead.

Los Angeles Times has a nice review of Nina’s quotes said at the CW Winter TCA Panel and Party last week. The actress comments on playing the very different from one another Elena and Katherine. She also shares her speculations about whether or not Ms. Pierce will come out of the tomb, if  Elena will keep her promise to Elijah and more. Read the full article at Show Tracker.

Ian Somerhalder hasn’t dallied, too. He recently revealed PopWatch what Damon’s bedroom looked like. Kevin and Julie joined him to talk about his character’s bathroom. According to them, there will be a bath scene in one episode, and a shower scene in the next. We couldn’t ask for more, could we? Check out the rest of the interview over at Entertainment Weekly.

“The Vampire Diaries” is also featured in the latest issue of EW. The Salvatore Boarding House has the spread in HQ, and Vampire-Diaries.net published a great recap of the major hints. Both the scans and the article are up at their site.

With “The Vampire Diaries” midseason premiere next week (believe it or not), the cast was interviewed by many reporters, such as Watch With Kristin, TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross and more. You can find all the videos below. There are also links to the articles in addition to them, so please take time to go through these as well. (Lots of) SPOILERS to follow! Sorted by upload date.

EW chats to Somerhalder, Zap2it’s video interview with Michael, Candice & Ian

Even though Ian Somerhalder turned 32 yesterday, it looks like this guy just can’t catch a break. He had an interview with Entertainment Weekly about Damon’s humanity, his love for Stefan and Ian Somerhalder Foundation. Visit Inside TV for the full article.

What can he tell us about the Salvatore Brothers’ relationship in this episode? ”Stefan is locked in that cave. In all actuality, it’s kind of what Damon’s been dreaming about. But truthfully, Damon wants to get his brother out of there. He’s gonna try really hard, once he works out what he needs to work out. As much as he wants to kill his brother sometimes, he loves him. Damon can’t imagine being stuck in that cave with Katherine. That would just suck. There’s such a commonality of pain between these two guys. They’re in love with the same two women. Two of them — it’s absurd. [Laughs] And the protagonists that have come to town, they mean business. They’re gonna wreak some havoc, and they’re gonna cause some problems for us, that’s for sure.”

You’ve probably noticed that with the “Vampire Diaries” mid-season finale tonight, more and more chats have popped up. The stars in this one are Michael Trevino, Candice Accola and Ian Somerhalder – all interviewed by the wonderful Carina Mackenzie. They talk about their experience filming “By the Light of the Moon” in particular. Tyler’s journey from a bully to this strong person, Marcos Siega’s return and Mason’s friend, Jules are also mentioned. I love this quote from Ian:

Ian Somerhalder says that the heart of Tyler’s story is whether or not he can step up, accept his fate, and do what it takes to protect his home and his family. “Or what’s left of his family, the poor guy,” Somerhalder adds. “We killed his dad, we killed his uncle. I think we need to figure out, first of all, what Tyler wants. My guess, hopefully, is that he realizes that this is his home. This is where it all started and where it should end.”

Interview round-up: Nina talks tomb sex, TV Guide’s video with Michael, The Show Girl chats to Ian

Lots of interviews this week… Here are the latest ones:

‘Vampire Diaries’ exclusive: Nina Dobrev talks this week’s steamy sex scene (and the resulting bruises):

Dobrev agrees that the introduction of Elijah and the concept of The Originals has been great for the show. “It’s gonna keep getting gorier and better and darker,” she says. “It adds a whole other layer. As difficult as it was for all the characters before, now they’re faced with an even more epic danger. Everyone is at risk.” But not Katherine, right? She won’t be getting a stake in the heart anytime soon, we hope. “I can’t imagine what the show was before Katherine came around,” Dobrev says. For a second, you wonder if that’s the sleep-deprivation from her schedule playing the doppelgängers for half a season talking. But it’s not. “If she ever left, I think that would be a really big mistake. She’s like another Damon,” she continues, “but now Damon is getting a lot softer, and you still need that kind of playful bad character.”

Behind the scenes of Paul’s People shoot, interview with New York Post

Remember those features of our very own Ian and Paul in People? Of course you do, how could you forget them. ;) Well, People released their interview with Paul as well. The actor explains why the Sexiest Man honour could work against him. There’s also a behind the scenes footage featured in the video. Click here to watch the whole chat. Favourite moment? “The less sexy you try to be, the more sexy I think you are.” This is why we love Paul!

The actor also talked to PopWrap. He teases the last two episodes this year, making us crave for more. Paul also mentions the werewolves (whose popularity is definitely growing lately), the Originals (including Klaus himself), etc. Thanks to NYPost on YouTube for the embed. You can watch the interview at PopWrap as well.

Hollywood Insider chats to Julie Plec: “This episode [Katerina] gives us a lot more information.”

• Another slow tease: The story of The Originals and what powers they have will be a good portion of the rest of the season, Plec says. “It’s gonna be a big surprise for all of them [Damon, Stefan, Elena, Rose] when they come face-to-face with Elijah again, and then the question of ‘Well, how do you kill an Original?” is a big one that they’ll have to seek out answers to, and that’s gonna give us a lot story for upcoming episodes.” Tonight, we learn of one power that an Original vampire has that is unexpected.
