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.”

Chat time: Vampire Diaries finale scoop, Originals & sacrifices

Yes, you heard that right. It’s chat time again! With season two coming to an end, there’s been hundreds of interviews surfacing. I put them all together in this post for your safety and sanity. There are many topics discussed, especially the finale, the Curse of the Sun and the Moon and Klaus, of course. For more scoop, click on the Interview category at the top of the page.

Zap2it: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev on Katherine: ‘It must be a lonely place’

Don’t expect Katherine to stay down for long, though. “When she gets rejected, she wants it even more,” she says. “It’s the want-what-I-can’t-have syndrome. It makes the dynamic with Katherine and Damon a little bit more interesting because all of a sudden he doesn’t want her anymore. It’s kind of like ‘Oh, you don’t want me? I’m going to make you want me.’ It heightens the love triangle even more between those three.”

Vampire Diaries UK return date, Paul Wesley in TV Guide

ITV2 themselves announced the return date for “Vampire Diaries” on their Facebook page a few days ago. And no, this is NOT an April Fools’ Day joke. The show will return British screens April 12th, less than a week after its official return. Cheers, UK fans!

And thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up on Paul’s TV Guide feature. In Ileane Rudolph’s chat with the actor, he discusses what’s ahead for Stefan when the show returns, well-known Klaus and his girlfriends on (Elena) and off screen (Torrey DeVitto).

TV Guide talks to David & Kevin, Sara Canning supports Teens for Jeans + still hope for Damon and Elena?

Thanks to @IHeartTVD for the heads up that Sara was at Aeropostale to support Teens for Jeans. It’s a campaign that collects jeans for homeless teens. If you haven’t donate yet, there’s still time to do so! Just bring them to your nearest Aeropostale store till this Sunday, February 13th. See a few pictures at BuzzFocus.

Mega Buzz‘s latest spoiler chat features some “Vampire Diaries” as well. With the recent Damon events, Delena fans haven’t been very happy. But according to Julie Plec herself, they shouldn’t lose hope. She says, “There are big moments coming up all around for them [Stefan, Elena and Damon].” Get more scoop over at TV Guide.

Kevin Williamson and David Anders stopped by TV Guide, too. David’s interview with Robyn Ross stars with an upcoming Elena line saying, “Why does everything John touches fall apart?”. The actor claims his character wants only good for his daughter, though. He also teases the reason for his return will be revealed within the next five episodes or so. And if you’re curious to know who might pay a surprise visit to Mystic Falls, just continue to read (highlight for spoilers). Head over to TV Guide for the entire story.

Will daddy and daughter make up? Anders teases that Elena’s familial web will only get more tangled in the coming weeks. “There might be a surprise visit from Isobel,” he says.

Damian Holbrook posted his chat with Kevin yesterday, too. The executive producer talks about last night’s “Crying Wolf” in particular. As the ones who watched the episode know, “S–t goes down.” Go here to find out why.

Siding with the furrier folks in town could come with a hefty price — especially for a certain Salvatore in possession of that mysterious moonstone — but given the shaky state of his relationship with Caroline, young Mr. Lockwood doesn’t really have a pack of options. “He doesn’t know whom to trust because Caroline lied to him about everything,” says Williamson. “He’s very lonely and vulnerable, but he’s also an aggressive guy, so he may not respond appropriately.”

Interview round-up: IGN chats with Nina and Candice, Ian talks to PopWrap + TV Line & more

First of all, I’m SO terribly sorry I haven’t been around lately. With the end of the term, I had no time to surf the Internet. I also had some health problems, so it was impossible for me to post. However, I’m better now and will be able to update the blog. If I disappear for some time in the future, it would be because my health is getting worse again. My apologies in advance.

I have lots of things to catch up with, so I decided to start with the chats. In this post, you will find all the discussions with the cast websites have posted recently (old and new both). To make things easy for you (since there are plenty of them), I separated the articles. Basically, if you’re particularly interested in Nina’s interview, you can find them all under her name.

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!

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.

Daddy Issues (213) synopsis, latest Candice appearances + various cast interviews

The episode description of “Daddy Issues” has been released, thanks to VampireSite.net. According to the latest spoilers (and Michael Trevino’s tweet), David Anders is coming back in it. The synopsis confirms that. Besides Uncle John’s return, Damon’s shower scene takes place in that episode as well. In conclusion, I already love February 3rd.

CHOOSING SIDES — Johnathan Gilbert’s (guest star David Anders) return to Mystic Falls comes as an unhappy surprise to Elena (Nina Dobrev), Jenna (Sara Canning) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Caroline (Candice Accola) lets Stefan (Paul Wesley) know about her conversation with Tyler (Michael Trevino), and Stefan does his best to reach out to a confused and conflicted Tyler. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) comforts Bonnie (Katerina Graham) after her disturbing conversation with Jonas (guest star Randy Goodwin). When Jules (guest star Michaela McManus) takes a hostage, the situation quickly escalates into a violent confrontation.

Zach Roerig and Matt Davis also star. Joshua Butler directed the episode written by Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec.

Candice Accola has recently attended a few events (our 2011 Winter TCA master post is coming, so stay tuned!). First, she showed up at Give Back Hollywood Foundation & Fashion Forms Giving Lounge on January 13th. Two days later, the actress shone in a black dress at 2011 Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala. Visit the links above for high quality photos. HUGE thanks to @CAccolaWeb!

Speaking of, Mandie (the webmaster) has a poll about the recent “Buffy” speculations up over at her site. If you haven’t heard yet, Candice is one of the actresses most likely to star in the upcoming remake. In case you’re interested, Candice Accola Web has links to various articles.

Also, TV Guide and EW posted their chats with Steven R. McQueen and Sara Canning, respectively. Robyn Ross and Steven talk about Jeremy’s crush on Bonnie, his season 2 motivations and more. The video can be found after the break and Robyn’s article is over here. On the other hand, Sara comments on the men in her character’s life – Alaric, John Gilbert and… Original Elijah? There are quotes from Kevin, Julie and Ian included, too. Head over to Inside TV for the entire interview.
