Nina Dobrev interviews: EW, Hollywood Crush, TV Guide + new promotional photo

More and more interviews continue to pop up. This week, they have been mostly of Ms. Dobrev. They can be all found below and follow the links for the whole stories. Nina opens up about her “Vampire Diaries” co-stars, the characters she plays and the last two episodes of season 2. There are some pretty spoilery segments, so beware!

Inside TV: Nina Dobrev’s five teases for tonight’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ (and one big one for the season finale)

• Fans are talking about chemistry between Elena and Elijah (Daniel Gillies). Should we be? “We can obviously tell that there was something between Elijah and Katherine, and there is now something sort of building between Elena and Elijah. Is it the same thing that’s been going on with every guy who’s encountered Elena after having survived Katherine?” Dobrev asks. (She has no answer.) “It’s funny,” she says. “Daniel Gillies is such a sweetheart, and he’s so amazing and so funny, and we’re really, really good friends, so we have a lot of fun on set. That kind of chemistry and friendship definitely can be caught on camera. I’m glad that it plays.”

Hollywood Crush: Nina Dobrev Says Tonight’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ Ep Will Be ‘Very Sad, Epic’

The Sun Also Rises (221) extended promo + song list and ratings for The Last Day

A couple of days ago, an extended trailer for the last episode before the season finale was revealed. As you all know, it’s titled “The Sun Also Rises”. The promo is highly spoilery, especially for the ones who haven’t watched episode 20 yet. It’s time!

OVERNIGHT RATINGS – AT TV BY THE NUMBERS.

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.

KSiteTV and Zap2it’s reviews of The Last Day (220)

In case you don’t know, there was a press screening of tonight’s “The Last Day” at The CW yesterday.

TV Guide: 6 Reasons Why You Should Watch Vampire Diaries This Week

5. Klaus needs to hunt down his ritual shopping list items: The ritual, as we’ve heard before, needs a witch, a vampire, a doppelganger and a werewolf. Conveniently, the ritual coincides with the return of Tyler (Michael Trevino) to Mystic Falls. Even if you think you know who will fill each of those positions, you’re wrong — dead wrong.

KSiteTV: Advance Review: The Vampire Diaries “The Last Day”

Oh wait. No I haven’t said enough. One MORE thing: There’s more than one “I-did-not-see-that-coming” moment tonight. That’s probably to be expected from TVD, but just be warned. What you think will happen, is probably not what is going to happen. I credit the Vampire Diaries writing team with keeping it real and having the ability to surprise us constantly.

The Seven visits Caroline’s house, Nina Dobrev on Regis & Kelly

The Vampire Diaries picked up for third season

As The CW Blog has recently reported, “The Vampire Diaries” is one of the network’s early pick-ups for the 2011-2012 season. Thought that’s not a surprise considering it’s its top-rated drama. “America’s Next Top Model”, “Gossip Girl, “90210” and “Supernatural” are also set to return next fall. Read The CW’s full press release over at their site.

The CW’s bloodily addictive hit THE VAMPIRE DIARIES was also given an early renewal, and in its sophomore season, remains the network’s most-watched show (4.0 million viewers) and the network’s number-one show among its target audience of women 18-34 (2.9/9).

MTV chats to Dawn Olivieri, no potential TVD/Secret Circle crossovers

Hollywood Crush has recently met Dawn Olivieri, the actress who plays Andie Star. They chat about the reporter, her relationship with Damon and Elena being jealous (or is she?). Watch the video below and go to MTV for more “Vampire” stories.

Plus, THR has posted part two of their interview with Kevin Williamson. In it, the writer denies any crossovers between “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Secret Circle”. There have been some rumors about it on the Net, but apparently, they’re NOT true. Kevin also points out the similarities and differences between the two shows.

“You’ll watch us build another mythology based on L.J. Smith’s books that will become as twisty and turny as The Vampire Diaries [is] but with a whole new story,” Williamson explains. “There’s an epic love story that we hint at in the pilot that is going to blow up about two soulmates. It’s not as violent as The Vampire Diaries or as scary.”
