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.”

New Nina season 2 promos, BTS of episode 12 & 13, Comic-Con portraits + more cast photos

Quite a lot of pictures of the “Vampire Diaries” cast surfaced in the last few days. To start off, @HeyJude012 has revealed a brand new promo of Nina. In addition to it, Nina Dobrev Network has one more image from the shoot.

After Ms. Perfection №1 comes №2. Kat Graham attended Entertainment Weekly 2011 Pre-SAG Party along with Michael Trevino. Photos of her are up over at Vampire Diaries Web and visit Michael Trevino Fan for Michael ones. In case these are not enough for you, there’s a video interview with them in our last interview round-up.

Trevino has showed up at Hennessy Privilege Intime Dinner (click for pictures) as well. Thanks to Michael-Trevino.org for supplying us with photos, again!

To make your day even better, we have some images of Steven for you, too! He has visited a few Sundance Film Festival events. Find several images at VDW. Plus, Steven R. McQueen Online uploaded some more in their gallery (folder 1 and folder 2).

Behind the scenes pics have been released, too. Judy Yam has a funny “Nian” shot from “The Descent”. PopWrap has published a BTS pic from the same episode as well as another from “Daddy Issues”.

To end up with the behind the scenes stuff, ELLE has posted a video from Nina Dobrev’s photoshoot. She comments on the differences between Elena and Katherine and making out with almost every guy on the show. Head over to Elle’s site to see her spread. She’s so beautiful, new outtakes better come out soon!

Thirsty for candids? Well, here are some! Dobrev was seen shopping in LA on January 18th. A few days later, she and Ian Somerhalder departed from LAX. They may be old, but still great to look at. Many thanks to Undisclosed Desires!

Finally, new EW portraits from last year’s Comic Con hit the Net this morning. These are definitely worth checking out! 30+ portraits can be found in Nina Dobrev Fans’s gallery. Long live, purple pants LOL!

EDIT: Candice Accola Web has also posted new/old scans of the actress in CH2 October 2010. Candice looks absolutely smashing, go to CAW for her six page feature. The issue is available online as well.

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.

Michaela McManus chats to Inside TV, Damon’s shower scene takes place in episode 13

Inside TV has talked to lots of cast members latterly. Mandi last chatted to the newest arrival in Atlanta/Mystic Falls, Michaela McManus. She mainly comments on the men of the show, including Mason and Tyler Lockwood, werewolf buddy Brady and unique Damon. Michaela doesn’t omit to drop some hints about the second half of the season as well, so be careful.

Asked if she’s gotten to film a transformation scene yet, she says she’s shot a partial one: “Coming out of it is what I filmed. When they turn, they transform into this beast, and the morning after, it’s discovering what happened last night. It’s kind of like blacking out when they turn. They’re not necessarily conscious of what they’re doing.” For the first time in her career, McManus is doing stunt work and she’s loving it. “Jules gets pretty physical, and I think people will be impressed with her skills,” she says. “[The show] is doing a lot more action. It’s something to tune in for.”

Head over to Entertainment Weekly for the full interview.

Also, Sandra Gonzales is reporting we’ll have the enormous pleasure to see the notorious shower scene of Damon’s in 213 “Daddy Issues”. The episode airs February 3rd, so mark your calendars!

Heather asks: Thank you for all The Vampire Diaries EW has covered lately! Now, any word on the upcoming Damon shower scene I’ve been hearing about?
No word on the identity of the “beautiful girl” he shares the scene with, but I can confirm it takes place in episode 13 and airs Feb. 3. So mark it with a giant smiley face with fangs on your TV calendars. (I’m not the only one who has one, right?)

Michaela McManus joins The Vampire Diaries cast as Jules

Day by day, we learn more and more about this character. E! Online‘s Kristin told us about her in the first place. Then, we found out she came to town to investigate Mason’s disappearance. Now, thanks to Michael Ausiello (via Vampire Diaries Online), we also know who will play Jules and it’s “One Tree Hill”‘s Michaela McManus. Her previous credits include “Law & Order: SVU” as well. The actress will make her debut in a December episode (probably 11) of the season. Read an excerpt from Ausiello’s article below and visit Movieline for the rest.

The actress will play Jules, a friend of Mason Lockwood’s who comes to Mystic Falls looking for the MIA werebeast (little does she know he got his heart ripped out by Damon two weeks ago).
