Interview round-up: New promo videos, LA Times chats with Julie, Candice’s reveals to EW & MTV + more

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.

PopWrap: Dawn Olivieri: You never really die on ‘Vampire Diaries’

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.

Show Tracker: ‘The Vampire Diaries’: Remembering the dead with executive producer Julie Plec

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.”

Hollywood Crush: ‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Kat Graham Dishes On Whether Bonnie Will Risk Her Life For Elena

“Bonnie has always put Elena first,” Kat explained. “Bonnie Bennett hasn’t really had much of a family growing up, that’s already been established. So the relationship she has with Elena, she’s constantly putting herself on the line.”

Hollywood Crush: Nina Dobrev Says Kellan Lutz ‘Blows It Out Of The Park’ In ‘The Killing Game’

“Kellan does a really good job because as much as we’ve seen him in ‘Twilight’ and other movies, this role is really all about him and he really delivers, and I think people are going to be really pleasantly surprised and excited to see him taking on such a big role.”

Show Tracker: ‘The Vampire Diaries’: Executive producer Julie Plec teases a return, Klaus’ debut

“We will be seeing Trevor again this year,” executive producer Julie Plec revealed to Show Tracker during an interview. But even “Vampire Diaries” can’t perform miracles, so the character won’t be coming back from the dead. Instead, the return appearance will come during a format that fans of the show know all too well for period garb and revealing truths. Yes, another flashback episode is on its way!

Zap2it: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Candice Accola: Have we seen the last of Caroline’s insecurities?

“I think it was that moment of her saying ‘No, this is not how friends treat other friends,’ as opposed to being like ‘Oh, it’s okay, we can be friends now, everything’s okay,'” Candice says. “No, she stood up for herself. And i think that when she slammed that door it was also shutting the door on a lot of insecurities. She grew up a lot in that moment. I loved it.”

The TV Chick: INTERVIEW: Michaela McManus (Jules) from The Vampire Diaries

And obviously seeing as you are not a werewolf yourself (laughs), how do you relate to Jules?
That’s a good question, because obviously who knows what that feels like? (laughs) But the core of Jules is that she’s living with almost a handicap in a way. It’s this secret that she harbors and she has to deal with the consequences that this curse creates and her friend was killed (Mason) and so I think the core of her is that she wants to avenge her friend’s death and she’s very loyal. And she’s deeply wounded. And I think that’s where her anger comes from — her hurt and this desire for revenge. It comes from a very real place.

Hollywood Crush: ‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Candice Accola Spills On Stelena vs. Delena Debate

“I think it’s going to take a couple more seasons of really getting to know these characters to see, you know, what’s gonna be the better choice because in the land of Mystic Falls, not a lot of time has passed, you know, a lot of the episodes are the following day….in Mystic Falls, everyone is still getting to know each other.”

Inside TV: ‘The Vampire Diaries’: Kat Graham on the Show’s Upcoming Scooby Gang Vibe

“I can’t say too much, but I will say that if it ever comes today to having to do something for Elena, Bonnie will go balls out for her. She doesn’t care,” she tells us. “Klaus [Joseph Morgan] coming into the show is going to create chaos. People are going to have to figure out what these characters have to do to save their lives.” That is, if it’s even possible…
