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.

EW chats to Somerhalder, Zap2it’s video interview with Michael, Candice & Ian

Even though Ian Somerhalder turned 32 yesterday, it looks like this guy just can’t catch a break. He had an interview with Entertainment Weekly about Damon’s humanity, his love for Stefan and Ian Somerhalder Foundation. Visit Inside TV for the full article.

What can he tell us about the Salvatore Brothers’ relationship in this episode? ”Stefan is locked in that cave. In all actuality, it’s kind of what Damon’s been dreaming about. But truthfully, Damon wants to get his brother out of there. He’s gonna try really hard, once he works out what he needs to work out. As much as he wants to kill his brother sometimes, he loves him. Damon can’t imagine being stuck in that cave with Katherine. That would just suck. There’s such a commonality of pain between these two guys. They’re in love with the same two women. Two of them — it’s absurd. [Laughs] And the protagonists that have come to town, they mean business. They’re gonna wreak some havoc, and they’re gonna cause some problems for us, that’s for sure.”

You’ve probably noticed that with the “Vampire Diaries” mid-season finale tonight, more and more chats have popped up. The stars in this one are Michael Trevino, Candice Accola and Ian Somerhalder – all interviewed by the wonderful Carina Mackenzie. They talk about their experience filming “By the Light of the Moon” in particular. Tyler’s journey from a bully to this strong person, Marcos Siega’s return and Mason’s friend, Jules are also mentioned. I love this quote from Ian:

Ian Somerhalder says that the heart of Tyler’s story is whether or not he can step up, accept his fate, and do what it takes to protect his home and his family. “Or what’s left of his family, the poor guy,” Somerhalder adds. “We killed his dad, we killed his uncle. I think we need to figure out, first of all, what Tyler wants. My guess, hopefully, is that he realizes that this is his home. This is where it all started and where it should end.”

Full synopsis of Founder’s Day


FOUNDER’S DAY TURNS DEADLY – Founder’s Day has finally arrived, and everyone is busy with last-minute preparations for floats and fireworks.  Stefan (Paul Wesley) is uncomfortable with Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) new attitude toward Elena (Nina Dobrev), but Elena is more concerned about repairing her relationship with Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).  Jeremy is worried about Anna (guest star Malese Jow), but not sure he’s on board with her latest plan for the future.  While Caroline (Candice Accola) is enjoying her day as Queen of the celebration, she also tries to help Matt (Zach Roerig) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) get their friendship back on track.  Finally, although Damon and Alaric (Matt Davis) do their best to stop him, Johnathan Gilbert (guest star David Anders) sets a plan in motion that brings Founder’s Day to an end amid chaos, destruction and death.  Sara Canning and Katerina Graham also star.

Marcos Siega directed the episode written by Bryan Oh & Andrew Chambliss.
