Nina Dobrev’s panel:
Q: Stefan or Damon?
N: Defan – the other brother.
Q: You were in The American Mall…
N: It was a musical movie, it was really crazy. It was three weeks of singing and dancing. Really fun!
Q: Do you like the flashbacks on The Vampire Diaries?
N: They’re my favourite! It’s a rare opportunity to find a cool character that you love. Somebody dresses me – it’s like Halloween. Lots of fun.
Q: Did you have lots of (dance) training in The American Mall and the Miss Mystic Falls episode in The Vampire Diaries?
N: We had a dance instructor. Paul (Wesley) was terrified at first.
Q: How did you get into acting?
N: I had a dance background. I was a really hyper kid – my parents put me in classes. I love gymnastics and I took courses to be on stage/dance. I got an agent.
Q: Do you work long hours on-set?
N: It’s a weird schedule – TV in general – The Vampire Diaries especially. Lots of nights/days. Sometimes we’ll shoot from 6am to 8pm, sometimes 4pm to 5am. 14-15 hour days.
Q: In The Vampire Diaries books, Elena is blonde and bitchy. Do you prefer book or TV Elena?
N: I was excited to play book Elena. Kev (Williamson) and Julie (Plec) wanted the audience to love Elena and sympathize with her so that’s why they changed her character a bit and made her nicer. Also they wanted Elena and Katherine to be two different characters.
Q: Do you think it’d be a challenge to act out Katherine and Elena scenes when they’re face-to-face?
N: Yes. Not sure when it will happen. It would be cool and challenging.
Q: What was your first impression of The Vampire Diaries and how was your audition?
N: I read the Twilight books and I wasn’t skeptical since they (The Vampire Diaries & Twilight) have a lot of similarities. I met the producers and read the script. I kept fighting for the role.
Q: What’s your favourite episode of The Vampire Diaries?
N: Children of the Damned and Lost Girls. Vicki is in that episode (Lost Girls) and she is my best friend and ex-roommate. Now I live alone.
Q: How was the audition process for The Vampire Diaries and what was the role that you wanted but didn’t get?
N: Audition was gruelling. This was a TV show that everyone was talking about – lots of my friends went for it (the role of Elena). I did it in front of the studio, network, producers, executives. Paul was the only guy not schmoozing with me and offering me coffee. He was in a corner going over his lines. I was there for 12 hours. Paul and me had the best chemistry. Ian and Paul had the best chemistry. I’ve done tonnes of auditions that I haven’t gotten. I almost got the role of the female lead in Percy Jackson – they actually filmed in the same building as we film The Vampire Diaries. It was awkward.
Q: How difficult is it to fit in friends/family – social life?
N: Social life sounds really cool. What is that? (jokes) It’s very hard. The cast are my friends/family. We’re close and we get along.
Q: Do you like Katherine or Elena better?
N: Both. Elena – great many layers, nice girl that looks out for everyone. Has to deal with so many different things. Boyfriend is a vampire. Boyfriend’s brother is a vampire. Friend was killed because she was turning into a vampire. Best friend is a witch. Katherine is crazy and I’m not. I normally don’t play that role.
Q: What do you think when you watch yourself acting?
N: It’s odd. Very cool. I enjoy watching it (The Vampire Diaries) – I get involved in the storyline.
Q: Do you have any tips for future actors/actresses?
N: Practice, train and lots of hard work. Have a thick skin. Be prepared for knockbacks. You have to REALLY want it to be successful.
Q: Do you have any similarities with Elena or Katherine?
N: I’m more like Elena – a regular girl.
Q: Did you do any sightseeing in Australia?
N: I went to the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast – spooned a kangaroo, went to the Great Barrier Reef – found Nemo.
Q: What do you do off-set?
N: Sleep. I can sleep anywhere. A chair, the grass…
Q: What do you think of the other actors?
N: They’re cool. They’re some of my best friends. Awesome and smart. Everyone’s so different.
Q: Is it weird to have instant feedback from fans when you use twit-a-long?
N: Yes, it’s weird. It’s interesting to see how involved they are. We don’t film months in advance.
Q: If Elena moved into the Salvatores’, would they have to be invited in by her?
N: No, because she’s not the owner.
Q: How did John inherit Elena’s father’s ring?
N: John could’ve stole the brother’s ring. I have no idea.
Q: What kind of pranks were there on-set?
N: We pull a lot of pranks. I can’t tell you. One of our castmates believe aliens exist – we had somebody call his cell phone and it shows up on his phone as his own number calling himself. We left a creepy message. Guy thought it was real and got freaked out. This prank went on for three weeks. We sent him a rock and told him aliens wanted him to keep that rock with him at all times and he carried the rock around.
Q: Mannerisms for Katherine/Elena?
N: Elena has only lived 17-18 years in a modern city whereas Katherine has been around for ages. More confident.
Q: If you could play any other vampire in The Vampire Diaries, who would you play?
N: Vicki. You got to see how she was turned.
Q: What kind of music are you into?
N: The Fray, Kings Of Leon, Lady Gaga. Glee. I’m a musical fan.
Q: How did you feel whenever your brother (Jeremy) tells you off on The Vampire Diaries?
N: He’s always mean to me. I feel bad for Elena. She’s the underdog. Nobody loves Jeremy except Elena though. Both of his girlfriends were killed.
Q: If you could play any character in any movie, who would it be?
N: Angelina Jolie action movie. Wanted/Salt. Kirsten Dunst in Interview With The Vampire.
Q: What’s your favourite Glee song and why?
N: Don’t Stop Believing. I play it a lot when I’m on the treadmill.
Q: Did Elena choose the right brother?
N: She still hasn’t decided at her age. Why choose when you have two of the hottest brothers after you? She’s all Stefan, all the time though – she loves Stefan. Stefan’s a little stuck up. He’s always looking after her. Both (Stefan and Damon) have different qualities. Stefan will always protect her.
Q: How did you celebrate getting the role of Elena?
N: I went to Miami with the cast – then I needed a vacation after my vacation. I went to Cuba.
Q: What are your nicknames for cast members?
N: Candice – Candy Cola/Candy/Cola, Kayla – KK, Michael – Trevino, Steven – McQueen, Matthew – Davis. We call a lot of them by their last names.
Q: Were you nervous about being hung upside down in a car?
N: I love to do my own stunts. I was trained for stunts from growing up with a brother. He was my personal punching bag. I grew up as a tomboy. Not pretty but fun.
Q: Is it fun going to work?
N: Actually it is. Bittersweet. We have a Wall Of Death in the production office.
Paul Wesley’s panel:
Q: What’s your favourite scene in season 1 of The Vampire Diaries?
P: The moment before Elena and Stefan make love. It’s the first time he vamps out in front of her and his face and eyes change. He’s ashamed and she thinks he’s beautiful – it’s one of the most intimate moments. The love scene is a close second.
Q: How did you start your acting career?
P: I was sentenced by my parents to go to an all boys Christian school. I wanted to play ice hockey and got kicked out. I started acting and developed a love for it. I realised I could make a career out of it. I kind of fell into it. Advice for future actors/actresses – do acting cause you love it.
Q: What character would you play other than Stefan?
Q: How did you get the role on The Vampire Diaries?
P: I auditioned for the role of Damon initially. They didn’t think I was right for Stefan. I got three callbacks for Damon. Then I was asked to read for the role of Stefan because they couldn’t find an actor for it. I did seven readings for Stefan. There were ten “Stefan’s” sitting in the hallway. They were told to go home one by one and I stayed ’til the final round.
Q: Did you get any souvenirs from The Vampire Diaries?
P: A lock of Ian’s hair for good luck. I wear The Vampire Diaries underwear. Same pair all the time.
Q: How do you feel about emotional scenes (in The Vampire Diaries)? Especially the torture scene.
P: It takes a lot out of me. It’s the most difficult work I’ve done as an actor. My wrists were bleeding during the torture scene. Director told me to use the pain. I’m proud of it.
Q: Vampires or wolves?
P: Vampires. Vampires are thinkers. Wolves are mainly instinctive and testosterone – very alpha male. Vampires are powerful – it draws me to them.
Q: What was it like working with James Woods in Shark?
P: I really liked him. He gave me his number. He’s cool, instinctive and a fun guy.
Q: What was the most embarrassing thing that happened on-set The Vampire Diaries?
P: The blooper reel. It was made as a joke by one of the editors. I fall a lot, smash into doors, go to kiss Nina and smash her in the face. There was something in my teeth – it was green. I had to do a sexy make out scene.
Q: Nina mentioned in her Q&A a Vampire Diaries cast member believes in aliens. Who is it?
P: I can’t tell you. Ask Ian.
Q: If you could be in any movie, what would it be?
P: My favourite book is Catcher In The Rye – it’d be cool to do that.
Q: What’s your best Aussie accent?
P: (imitates an Australian) How are you going?
Q: If you could guest star on any TV show, what would you guest star on?
P: Six Feet Under. In a past life. I don’t really watch TV anymore.
Q: If you could work with any actor/actress – who would it be and why?
P: Meryl Streep. She’s versatile and incredible. She’d make me look really bad on-screen. Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Q: What are the similarities between you and Stefan?
P: In high school I felt like I didn’t have many friends – I was maybe a loner myself. Not quite in the cool group. Now I feel really cool. Stefan’s shunned by society – every high schooler feels that way. The character is relatable.
Q: What do you have to do to get into character?
P: Watch Ian. Hours of meditation. God, he’s so hot. I try to absorb the idea of having 160 years of knowledge. Difficult to fathom. I had to try and conceptualise that the most. It’s a very challenging role. No specific routine.
Q: What do you do when you’re not acting?
P: Partying all night long. I have issues with sleep – I don’t sleep very much. I like snowboarding, winter activities, watching a good film. I like playing the guitar – I’m really bad at it. I like to travel. Roadtrip!
Q: Do you do all your own stunts?
P: Not all. Some. Stunt guys do some. I jumped off the roof in the pilot. I had a harness. Couldn’t walk for a couple of days.
Q: What’s your star sign?
P: Leo. I was born July 23.
Q: How has your life changed since The Vampire Diaries?
P: I never used to sit in an auditorium answering questions. It’s changed my life – I feel fulfilled. I’ve been acting for ten years.
Q: What do you like most about Australia?
P: Vegemite. I haven’t seen much of Australia. People have been really friendly, food is good. I want to see more of it.
Q: What was it like working on the set of The O.C.?
P: Great. I made good friends – Ben McKenzie and Adam Brody. I auditioned for the lead of The O.C. It was a great experience. It was a quick role.
Q: Do you prefer Elena or Katherine?
P: I don’t know where it (the show) is going to go. No idea what’s happening in season 2. Katherine is incredibly powerful and manipulative and terrifying.
Q: Do you have a tattoo?
P: Yes. It’s a rose.
Q: What does it represent?
P: I just love roses. I got a tattoo I hated when I was a teenager and I found a Japanese artist to design over it.
Q: You did the mini-series Fallen – will it ever be released in Australia?
P: No idea. I play a half-angel in that. I need to save the world. It just came out on DVD actually.
Q: Is there anyone that has special/hidden talents on-set?
P: I make Ian think he has mind manipulation. No, not really. I have none.
Q: What’s the funniest moment on-set?
P: Nina had to wear a really long corset dress. She fell over. Ian and I just laughed. Afterward I was thinking, “why didn’t I help her?”
Q: When were you the most nervous in life?
P: Right now? I was forced to do a school play – I played Phantom from Phantom of the Opera. I completely forgot my lines. It was in the fifth grade.
Q: If you had a fight with Edward Cullen, who would win?
P: Who’s Edward? Stefan would kick everybody’s ass. I don’t know anything about Edward.
Q: Have you done any other conventions?
P: No, this is my first.
Q: What countries do you like to visit?
P: My parents and grandparents are Polish. Australia. Going home is special, though.
Q: Are the fangs painful to put on?
P: No. I have fangs already in real life. The mold is done by professionals – custom made.
Q: Is it difficult playing bad vs good Stefan?
P: Bad Stefan is emotional. They’re equally challenging. I just spent an entire season of playing a good guy – I want to do something different. Both are equally rewarding.
Ian Somerhalder’s panel:
Q: What are the similarities between Ian and Damon?
I: I’m not a maniacal killer? I only kill people in America. I also do not rob the cradle at that level. I enjoy the hell out of my life like Damon. In season 1 Damon seems like a dick – there’s a lot more to him than meets the eye. We all have a lot of skeletons in our closet – they make us really human. Humour is used as a bandaid for pain – Damon’s a very lonely guy – he just wants his girl and his bro back. He feels pretty stupid.
Q: Do you prefer modeling or acting?
I: Acting. Modeling was fun when I was young. There’s truly no comparison.
Q: Lost vs The Vampire Diaries?
I: Lost – I didn’t know what the hell was going on. Every character lived in the moment. You never knew what was gonna trigger the death. There’s so much source material for The Vampire Diaries. There’s two more books coming out. I share so much information with Julie/Kev.
Q: Are you involved in any charities?
I: I’m spreading myself quite thin actually. I support mainly environmental/animal charities. Giant Ones, Conservation International. Wildlife Federation. Animal Adoption/No Kill charities. [I didn’t write this part down because I fail and I was listening ~intensely but he also mentioned how Australia is beautiful and that we should take care of it. And that the Gulf of Mexico is his home – he’s from Louisiana and the oil spill really affects him. He tried to make us understand by making us imagine Melbourne was affected by something similar and all sources of our income and our family’s income is gone just like that.]
Q: Are you worried about being typecast?
I: No, because we’re the luckiest kids in Hollywood. I’m gonna work damn hard not to be typecast.
Q: What did you want to be when you were younger?
I: Marine Biologist. I grew up near a freshwater bayou.
Q: Are you superstitious?
I: The world is worst off because of superstitions. All have quirky superstitions. We can’t explain everything in the world – it calls for research and understanding. There’s lots of energy in the world.
Q: What’s your favourite Damon scene?
I: Dancing around with half-naked Kayla is never a bad thing. Stefan/Damon – back in the 1800s – flashbacks when Stefan and Damon were friends. Paul and I are like brothers – I want to shoot Paul because I spend so much time with him. Stefan and Damon transitioning to become vampires – they’re emotional and powerful scenes.
Q: How did you enjoy your time in Hollywood?
I: It’s a strange place. A lot of talented, intelligent people that live there. A lot of the greatest filmmakers spend most of their time in L.A. It’s the basis and financing of storytelling. I wish Hollywood would get back to understanding CGI may not be the most entertaining/intriguing – basic storytelling is better. The weather’s really good, though.
Q: What storylines do you want in season 2?
Q: Did you have an idea of what you would look like as a vampire on-screen?
I: They didn’t really show me what vampires would look like. I went to make-up/hair/fangs/eye tests – created cool guys.
Q: Who’s your all-time idol?
I: So many. Actors – Damon should be a cross between Mick Jagger and Carey Grant and look like Marlon Brando. Brando is amazing. They exuded so much pain. They’re always smiling – they sensed that something was going on back there that’s cool.
Q: If you had any role written for you, what would you want to play and what genre of movie?
I: It comes down the filmmaker. Who conceptualises/makes them what they are. My brother’s doing a film with Clint Eastwood.
Q: What book would you recommend us to read?
I: I’m the worst guy to ask. The Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman – it’s an enlightening book, you learn to appreciate the people around you. It’s hard to be humans and not judge. Judging doesn’t help anything. Probably why the world is in turmoil. It’s easy to read. The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley is a heavy book.
Q: What was the process of getting the role of Damon?
I: It was HELL to get. I had an initial meeting with producers. Took 7-10 days. I was vested in it. Scared. It was an intense and liberating process. I was in Las Vegas with parents – called my agent and asked for the part – told me it was probably too late but said I had to be in L.A the next day and I had eight pages of sides to read. I was reading the material while driving through the desert at 100mph with my ex. I don’t recommend it.
Q: What have you been doing in Australia?
I: Working. I was up in Port Douglas, scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. In two days we have to shoot new promotional ad for The Vampire Diaries.
Q: What’s your favourite role you’ve done?
I: Lost. The Rules of Attraction. Watch that if you’re over 16. 18 maybe.
Q: Damon/Stefan – both on human blood. Price is Elena. Who is going to win?
I: I don’t know.
Q: If you were still on Lost, how would you try to get off the island?
I: You wouldn’t know until you were actually in that situation.
Q: Did Young Americans (the Dawson Creek spin-off) help you to get The Vampire Diaries role?
I: Yes. It launched the careers of actors that are doing very well – Kate Bosworth, etc. It got me Life As A House and then Rules of Attraction.
Q: Nina and Paul both mentioned you have an alien-believer in the Vampire Diaries cast. Can you tell us who it is?
I: May or may not play a teacher on The Vampire Diaries. Check his Twitter.
Q: What’s your favourite joke from The Vampire Diaries?
I: Damon trying to convince Stefan he’s good – Stefan starts laughing. Stefan had to go get squirrel blood and Damon offered a soccer mom.
Q: What’s the greatest thing about acting?
I: It’s basically made up of people that didn’t want to grow up. Acting is an unbelievable avenue of exploring. I highly recommend acting classes. They teach people to listen. It’s a cathartic way to hammer down on issues we create in our lives. It’s a cool avenue of exhilaration. It’s a way to get out of your comfort zone.
Q: Was there someone/something that inspired you to take up acting?
I: Watching old movies as a kid. So many reasons. I always knew I wanted to do it. Parents wanted me to explore it. It’s fun to make believe.
Q: What’s the craziest thing a fan has said/done?
I: Asking me to bite them. 13 year-olds look like 25. Parts of the body requested is also interesting. Fans memorising license plates of vehicles and stalking us. It’s all good.
Q: What superpower do you want?
I: Ability to fix the oil leak in Gulf of Mexico or mind compulsion.
Michael Trevino’s panel:
Q: Do you like Melbourne or Sydney better?
M: I need to check out Melbourne more. I was in Sydney for a couple of days.
Q: What’s your favourite mythical creature?
M: Lycans from Underworld are interesting.
Q: Who do you go for in the World Cup?
M: At first I went for Mexico and America. Didn’t turn out well. The Argentina vs Germany match was good. I’m gonna go with Spain.
Q: Are there a lot of script chances in The Vampire Diaries?
M: Lots of revision. We get ideas about the main story. Script’s totally different. Gotta roll with it. Changes from day to day.
Q: What’s your nationality?
M: Mexican. I get “Italian” a lot.
Q: Do you know how Tyler’s character is going to develop?
M: I brought the books and read the first two. Got an idea of the family background. Not much Tyler in season 1. Mainly scenes with Jeremy. It’s a big cast so they need to show a lot of storylines. Can’t wait for season 2!
Q: What has been your favourite scenes to shoot? Season 1 and 2.
M: Season 1 – punching Jeremy in the face and he doesn’t know what’s happening. There’s a close-up of the moon in that shot which is kinda foreshadowing.
Spoilers to follow!
Season 2 – another Lockwood family member will appear – he’s my Uncle.
Q: How did you get into acting?
M: I didn’t take drama classes in high school. So I thought about “What if?” a lot. It was spontaneous – I took theater classes and I got opportunities.
Q: Is there a lot more Tyler in season 2?
M: Yes. Lockwood takeover.
Q: If you could play anyone else in (The Vampire Diaries) the series besides Tyler, who would you play and why?
M: Damon. I went for the role of Damon (was told I wasn’t pretty enough), I went for the role of Stefan (I was not “nice” enough).
Q: How did you get involved in The Vampire Diaries?
M: Vampires are so successful these days. My agent got me the audition.
Q: Do you have any movies coming out soon?
M: The Factory with John Cusack. Filmed a couple of years ago. Shooting’s done. Waiting for distribution and release now.
Q: Who do you get along most with on-set?
M: Everyone. We’re all really close. We shoot in Atlanta – live five minutes away from each other so we’re always at each others’ houses. I have the most scenes with Zach (Roerig) and Steven (McQueen) – we’re the closest.
Q: What would you like your character to do if you could do anything?
M: I’d like to see the lighter side of Tyler. That he’s not always a prick. More of his family and flashbacks of ancestors – maybe they were bullies back then.
Q: What’s your favourite episode of The Vampire Diaries?
M: Founder’s Day – the season finale. We shot on the weekend for that episode. Took 10 days to complete shooting. Since the finale was amazing, I think the first episode of season 2 should be just as good if not better.
Q: Were there any funny/unexpected moments on-set?
M: Fight scene with Zach (in 1×18 – Under Control) – the pavement was slick and my knee came down and hit Zach on the nuts. It was a “cut” right there. I felt really bad.
Q: If you could star in any TV series/movie, what would it be?
M: I want to be a serial killer on Dexter.
Q: If you weren’t acting, what would your job be?
M: A lawyer. I wanted to major in Marine Biology. I wanted to do shows at Seaworld.
Q: There are differences between The Vampire Diaries books and the TV series. Do you like or dislike that?
M: I knew it was different from the beginning. The books were written in ’91. I like TV – it’s edgier, interesting. It also shows respect to the books.
Q: What do you get up to when you’re not filming?
M: You mean besides keeping out of trouble? Hanging out with family/friends. I’m teaching myself photography – taking random pictures of landscapes and people. Not in a stalkery/perverted way…
Q: Have you ever been to Australia before?
M: Never. I’m enjoying myself, though!
Q: I’ve heard you’re a really good dancer…
M: Where does everybody hear that from? I’m not auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance or anything. I like to dance to certain music.
Q: When are you leaving Melbourne?
M: My flight is tomorrow [which is technically today (July 6th) – the cast left already].
Q: What’s your favourite part of being in Australia?
M: Being here (at the convention). Meeting all the fans.
Q: Were you shocked by Vicki’s death?
M: I was very sad. Her acting was amazing. I thought, “who am I gonna do scenes with now?”
Q: What’s the thing about vampires/werewolves that makes them so popular?
M: It’s history repeating itself. Buffy/Angel. This is a new generation. Success of Twilight/True Blood.
Q: Who are you favourite actors/actresses?
M: (Robert) De Niro. Kate Beckinsale. Meryl Streep. I’d like to work with De Niro.
Q: Stefan or Damon?
M: Damon. Tyler comes from the same world – flawed, rules don’t apply to them, can also be sweet… I relate to him more.
Spoilers to follow!
Q: Does Tyler have a new love interest in season 2?
Q: What’s your favourite type of music?
M: Everything. Favourite band is The Doors. I like hip hop – Kid Cudi. I partied a lot when I was younger. I like electro.

M: Dexter. Modern Family. The Office.
Q: Have you ever been starstruck and by who?
M: I bumped into him while I was headed to an audition – he was talking business. It was George Clooney.
Q: Would you mind if Tyler went darkside?
Q: Who’s your mentor?
M: My grandfather from my dad’s side. He’s a hard working Mexican.
Q: Have you tasted Vegemite?
M: Yes. It sounded disgusting. A friend of mine is Australian and told me to buy a few jars for her while I was here. I had toast and Vegemite for breakfast the other day. It’s an acquired taste. I also did a Tim Tam Slam.
Q: Have you tried any local beer?
M: Just Pure Blonde.
Q: Have you done anything interesting in Australia?
M: A tour of the Sydney Opera House.
Q: Are you surprised with the popularity of The Vampire Diaries?
M: I always knew it’d be popular. Not THIS big though. The scripts are so good, even I’m a fan!
Q: You were in 90210 – how are the people?
M: I was excited to be on the remake at first. Then the writers/producers got lost. My character didn’t work out. I still keep in touch with the cast, though.
Q: How much can you benchpress?
M: I don’t actually know. I’m having a gym session before the autographs.
Q: What’s your best Aussie accent?
M: (imitates an Australian and does it REALLY well in my opinion) Stranger Danger.
Q: What show did you work on that you enjoyed the most?
M: Cane. It was my first real big gig. I felt like I was getting paid to learn how to act.
Q: What do you dislike/like about Tyler?
M: Dislike – fights all the time, super cocky, womaniser. I want to show the different side of him. Like – not gonna take no for an answer.
Q: What do you think you’ll be doing in 10-20 years?
M: Swimming at Seaworld. (joke) Hopefully in films by then – acting/directing.
Q: Did the flight (to Australia) put you off?
M: I’ll definitely come back next year if the opportunity arises. I can fall asleep anywhere – I’ve never flown on Virgin Blue. It was quite an experience.
Q: Are you on Twitter?
M: Yes (if you aren’t following him already, you can find him here).
Q: Would you guest star on Supernatural?
M: There are a lot of Supernatural fans in Australia. The fanbase is diehard. I need to look into it more. I’m sure there can be a crossover somewhere…
Q: Do you prefer Australian or American football?
M: Do you mean rugby? Rugby is huge in Australia. I would like to know (AFL – Australian Football League) how it works. I’ll Wiki that. I’ve been an NFL fan since birth.
Q: Do you like Dexter because Jimmy (Smits) was on it?
M: Jimmy is very respected in the business. I’ve been watching Dexter since season 1, though. Jimmy is very professional.
Q: What’s it like working with Kevin Williamson?
M: In high school everyone watched Dawson’s Creek. Working with him is great. Kevin is brilliant.
