The actor was also photographed taking Torrey DeVitto out for lunch on February 14th. So nice of him! I love how he found the time despite his busy “Vampire Diaries” schedule. The full set can be found at Paul Wesley France.

Steven R. McQueen on Piranha 3D

Richard Dreyfuss in a boat. Nubile partygoers stalked by a toothy, swimming predator. What sounds like the Steven Spielberg masterpiece Jaws is actually Piranha 3D, a tongue-in-cheek horror film from director Alexandre Aja (High Tension). Helping Aja contain the centuries-old threat onscreen is Elisabeth Shue, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Jerry O’Connell, and up-and-coming actor Steven R. McQueen. The young star of the CW’s Vampire Diaries spoke to about Comic-Con, his fear of the toilet, and the oil tanker that pumped gallons of fake blood onto the Piranha set.

Q: So I read that nearly 1,000 characters die in Piranha 3D.

A: It’s something like that. I think we used more blood than any movie ever has. We actually had an oil tanker standing by, so fake blood could just be pumping out all day. [Laughs] It’s so funny, man. I went from Disney, which caters to a youthful audience, to The Vampire Diariesand now Piranha. It’s fun to see the different ways I can entertain different audiences.

TV Fanatic interviews Steven: “He [Jeremy] doesn’t have any humanity anymore.”

In the latest Vampire Diaries trailer, Elena tries to shake her brother awake, following his first season finale overdose.

Well, spoiler alert, fans: Jeremy Gilbert lives! We know this because Steven R. McQueen spoke with TV Fanatic this week and previewed his character’s upcoming arc on the series. Excerpts from the interview are below…

What can you tell us about Jeremy this season?
Obviously I can’t give away everything, when it comes to if he turns into a vampire or not. I can say this: Jeremy has been pushed around quite a bit. He’s lost his parents, lost his first love, and all of the sudden there’s this new girl that he relates to because she’s an outsider as well, so they connect on that level. When he loses her, she’s the last person, and he lets himself go emotionally. He’s a little cold to the world now. Instead of being pushed around and wearing his heart on his sleeve; he’s about to push back a little bit.

Do you think Jeremy initiated the change for all of the wrong reasons?
He doesn’t have any humanity anymore. He doesn’t trust his sister because she betrayed him, he doesn’t really trust anybody and everyone views him as a kind of monster, so I think his mindset is “everyone already sees me as a monster, why not become one?”

Obviously, Jeremy wakes up, changed or not changed. Can you tell me how life goes when he does wake up?
Jeremy is a little more calculated. He always had his heart on his sleeve, and he doesn’t [use] emotion anymore. He thinks logically of how he can control the situation.
