Zap2it & EW: More tidbits from the Vampire Diaries cast

Zap2it‘s @cadlymack hasn’t been doing anything but teasing us this week. Following her video interviews with Kat and Ian, fellow “Vampire Diaries” fan published new snippets from Wesley and Dobrev as well as clips featuring Somerhalder and Trevino (click to check them out).

Before things go terribly wrong, fans of Stefan and Elena as a couple will be pleased to see some sweet, happy moments, including an emotional scene where they discuss the reality of Elena’s mortality. After all, if Elena remains human, she is inevitably going to age and someday die — while Stefan will stay 17 forever. “There’s a lovely scene that we do at the lake house discussing that,” Wesley says. “Touching lightly upon it without hitting you over the head, you know what I mean? It’s really kind of beautiful.”

Read the rest of the chat with Paul here.

“She feels like everyone around her is against her,” Dobrev says. “She has one thing in mind: she wants to sacrifice herself to save her family and her friends, and they are hell-bent on stopping her. It almost feels like everyone is against her. Now, her father comes home on top of everything, and he’s in cahoots with everyone about it.”

The entire Nina interview – at Zap2it.

EW‘s recently caught up with Michael Trevino and Ian Somerhalder, too. Michael speculates what could happen when already too confused Tyler finds about the Sun and the Moon curse. The actor also spoils his character will have some serious choices to make rather sooner than later – and they will have quite an impact on vampires and werewolves both. Visit PopWatch for the full story.

On the other hand, Ian talks about filming while having walking pneumonia. As you probably remember, Mr. Somerhalder was sick in the last two months of 2010 – in other words, from episode 9 to 12. Despite that fact, he didn’t go home (as normal people would do), but continue shooting. Marcos Siega’s return and the possibility of “Vampire Diaries” set cursed are also mentioned. Find the whole article over at Inside TV.

Oh, and there’s a “Where Were We” slideshow up at Entertainment Weekly. It includes tidbits from almost every cast member. Must read!

The TV Chick set interviews with Ian, Candice, Kat, Matt, Sara & Julie

Alix Sternberg from The TV Chick has posted LOTS of chats with “The Vampire Diaries” crew lately. After the Steven R. McQueen one, the reporter released interviews with Katerina Graham, Candice Accola, Ian Somerhalder, Julie Plec, Matt Davis and Sara Canning. Excerpts from them can be found below and click on the links above each quote for more. Plus, head over to The TV Chick for her video with Candice.

FROM THE SET: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Kat Graham (Bonnie) from The Vampire Diaries

And do you have a favorite moment or scene that you’ve shot so far?
The first thing that comes to mind when you ask me that is when Elena comes up the stairs after she’s been kidnapped and I had written her a note. I wound up getting a nose bleed just from that thing. And she walks up the stairs and I ran to her and hugged her. That scene didn’t have any words for me but just having that kind of bond with Nina, [it’s] probably one of my favorite moments just because it’s so real for me. That was probably one of my favorite moments that I’ve shot.

FROM THE SET: INTERVIEW: Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) from The Vampire Diaries

What has been your biggest challenge playing Damon?
The softer side of Sears. You know what I mean? It’s like (sings) “Come see the softer side of…Salvatore.” [Ed. Note: He has us all cracking up]
It’s tough, because there has to be truth and there’s a lot of real pain buried in that humor and that sort of the maniacal killer in him is starting to wane by virtue of the fact that again, not to sound like a broken record, all the stakes have been raised because he cares about people now. There are stakes.

Michael Trevino promo pic & poster, Thursday Night preview + Team Caroline wristbands

Thanks to CW publicist @HeyJude012 for tweeting this season 2 shot of Michael Trevino. So dark, mysterious and hot! Did I mention “hot”? Just two more days, guys! Excited, much?

Besides the promo picture, we have a new poster to show you. Given the light smirk (accompanied by sexy look) and the heading, I believe it’s Katherine on it. Thanks, The CW Blog!

To end with the CW goodies, they uploaded a new promo featuring the show on their YouTube channel. “The Vampire Diaries” and “Nikita” own Thursday Nights, indeed. Time to return, isn’t it?

Plus, Candice Accola Web ordered 50 ‘Team Caroline’ wristbands. Maddie posted a few polls regarding them a while ago and due to the positive response from them decided to order some. If the sales go well, there will be more wristbands. I would like to highlight that 25% of the proceeds go to Turn The Corner and 25% more – to Lymenaide. Support those causes and Team Caroline by buying a wristband over at Candice Accola Web.

New interviews with Julie and Steven + more Zap2it’s set videos & TCA Tour quotes

Carina Mackenzie has posted two new video reports of her recent “Vampire Diaries” cast visits. In the first one, she chats to Katerina Graham about Damon and Bonnie. Kat shares her opinion on whether or not the two can become friends (or “more than that”), Ian Somerhalder himself and her character’s triangle with Jeremy and Luka. Read an extract here and the rest of the article (+ video) is up at Zap2it.

Meanwhile, Bonnie has her hands full juggling her feelings for Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Luka (Bryton James). “We’ll see how everything unfolds. I love where Bonnie is right now. I love that she’s with innocent Jeremy and they have this very innocence about them, and I love that connection, and think that a lot of kids can relate to that. Being that they’re friends first, and they’re really creating a foundation of friendship first, and trust, and then moving from there.”

The second report is related to Ian Somerhalder’s latest Twitter photo. It features Damon, new reporter in town Andie Star (who we wrote about last month) and third wheel Alaric. According to the actor himself, Andie is Damon’s new love interest. But don’t you think she’s acting on free will – Mr. Salvatore is compelling her, so that he can use her as a “blood source”. To learn more about Andie, head over to Zap2it or simply watch the video below.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Fanbolt and The TV Chick also posted their chats with Julie Plec and Steven R. McQueen, respectively. Julie answers fan questions, such as what’s Bonnie’s family history, what’s ahead for Bamon and Delena and how does Klaus’s casting go. There’s even a tiny little mention of the “Vampire Diaries” finale (of the season and the series both). Find the answers of all these questions over at Fanbolt. On the other hand, Steven talks to Alix about Jeremy’s development so far, his attitude to Bonnie and Elena as well as what we can look forward to in the second half of the season. Visit The TV Chick for the entire chat.

Finally, Teen Television has some more quotes from the Winter TCA Panel. Nina and Candice discuss their characters’ progress, what has drawn them to playing on a vampire show, what to expect in the near future and more. Check out the full story at Teen Television, thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up!

Crying Wolf episode description, stills from 213 & 214 + new Stefan poster

Been dying for a Stefan poster? Well, your wish just came true. New January Sweeps poster (left) hit the Net a few days ago. In case the MQ version doesn’t please you, Blood Falls have it in high quality. Sorry, Damon, but there’s a reason he always gets the girl.

Many thanks to VampireSite.net for revealing the official description of episode 14, “Crying Wolf”. It airs February 10th and promises to be very interesting.

SECRETS AND LIES – Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) get away for what they hope will be a romantic weekend at the Gilbert family lake house, not realizing that they’ve been followed. Jenna (Sara Canning) starts to worry that Alaric (Matt Davis) isn’t being honest with her. Jules (guest star Michaela McManus) explains the importance of the sun and moon curse to Tyler (Michael Trevino), but leaves out an important detail. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) attends a tea at the Historical Society in order to talk to Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies), but Elijah isn’t giving up any secrets. With help from Caroline (Candice Accola) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), Bonnie (Katerina Graham) uses deceptive measures to get shocking new information out of Luka (guest star Bryton James). Finally, Tyler offers Matt (Zach Roerig) some relationship advice.

David Von Ancken directed the episode written by Brian Young.

As if the synopsis wasn’t enough to thrill us, Nina Dobrev Network has two stills from the February 10th episode. You can check them out in her gallery. Let the celebrations begin, Stelena fans! And in case you haven’t wished NDN happy 1st anniversary yet, head over to her site to do it. 🙂

The CW has released images from “Daddy Issues” as well. Credit goes to Andrea, again. There are some previews below, all the stills are up over at Vampire Diaries Web. Looks like Tyler fans will join Stelena ones in their happiness.

ITV2’s Vampire Diaries return date + trailer

Good news, UK fans! @itv2 tweeted that the show returned with all new episodes Tuesday, February 1st. That’s right, you’ll be able to see the “Vampire Diaries” midseason premiere only one week after the USA. For Australian fans, TVD comes back January 31st on GO!.

In addition to these news, ITV2 uploaded a new promo to make us even more excited. It features scenes from “The Descent”, so SPOILER warning for the ones who don’t like them.

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.

Candice & Kevin open up at TCA Press Tour, Inside TV talks to Daniel Gillies

Some interviews surfaced in the past few days. First of all, Wetpaint caught up with Candice Accola at the Television Critics Association Tour to talk about Caroline and Tyler. The chat is rather short, but quite interesting. Head over to their site for the entire story.

Does anything happen in those?

Yes. There are interactions between Tyler and Caroline. I think the thing to remember is that Caroline’s been lying to Tyler. And also, there are more werewolves coming into town. So how that’s going to sway Tyler in the kind of man that he wants to be is going to be very interesting. How that affects Caroline and Tyler’s relationship and friendship is going to be interesting. Caroline and Matt, whether anything is going to spark. That’s a triangle — there are many triangles. It’s become a whole geometry problem within the town of Mystic Falls. But I think what’s really wonderful is that a lot of supernatural qualities of the show has been going on, and that’s obviously going to continue, but in the next couple of episodes there are a lot of very human questions being asked that are more based on relationships.

Wetpaint talked to Kevin Williamson as well. The interview is separated in two parts (part one and part two). It touches on everything “Vampire Diaries” including Klaus’s casting (of course), Damon’s shower scene and the possibility of a gay character coming up this season. Beware of spoilers!

Are you casting a name we already know or someone new?
We’re looking at both — people who might be familiar to an audience. But most importantly, we want the right actor. So I’m guessing it’ll probably be someone we don’t know.

In addition to the gay character rumours, Michael Jensen says it wouldn’t be a werewolf. Williamson explained his decision saying that would be “too obvious.” Read Jensen’s article over at AfterElton.com.

Fancast has a report of the main spoilers spilled by the executive producer. According to Carrie Borzillo, “the Elena/Katherine dichotomy will continue to take twists and turns.” Visit Carrie’s Fancast page for her full recap.

Daniel Gillies (who is already on Twitter) had his moment, too. In this interview with Inside TV, the actor comments on Elijah, his upcoming integration into the town and who he thinks should play Klaus. Plus, Daniel teases Elijah knows John Gilbert and has scenes with him. Find out more at Entertainment Weekly.
