PopWrap‘s Jarett Wieselman continues his “Vampire Diaries” interview series with the following chat. In it, Daniel Gillies discusses Elijah’s personality and humanity (or what’s left of it) as well as his connection with Elena. Check out an excerpt here and head over to NYPost for the whole material.

PW: So you think there might be something more to their relationship?
Daniel: There’s no question that he’s enchanted by Elena but it’s not as simplistic as needing to be with this girl — I just think he’s more fascinated by her as a study in the potential of what a person can be. I think that if he does survive [the finale] and leaves Mystic Falls, I don’t think he can stay away because she’s too much of a miracle for him. There’s something in her that’s also in him – I don’t mean to be grotesque about it and frame this in a romantic context, but there’s a spiritual quality they share and that’s going to be very difficult for him to not return to.

Finally, Robyn Ross has released part one of her exclusive interview with Julie Plec. The producer and writer explains the (bloody) events around the Sacrifice and leave no clueless innocence, and shares her expectations for the May 12th finale. Visit TV Guide for more and come back tomorrow for the next part!

The penultimate episode was epic, how can the finale compare?
Plec: The last episode was clearly the season finale of our mythology storyline. We went all out and that was as deliberate choice knowing that the story we wanted to tell in our season finale is actually the emotional resolution of the season. We also want to really give the audience a window to where we’re going in Season 3, a taste of what the series is going to be like as we move forward.

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’

“Paul Sommers is directing it,” Nina said. “And Paul Sommers is our director of photography, so he’s done every episode since the beginning, except the pilot. So it’s his directorial debut. And it’s really cool and we’re really excited for him.”

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.

Katerina on Joseph Morgan as Klaus, CW Source talks to Candice

Over at Entertainment Weekly, Katerina Graham gushes about Klaus (after all, he’s the star of the season). She gives some hints about his arrival and shares her opinion on the actor. Read on to find it out and visit Inside TV’s Spoiler Room for more on your favourites.

Vampire Diaries scoop, please! Preferably on the upcoming arrival of Klaus! — Alison
To add to what EW’s Mandi Bierly already dug out of Julie Plec, Kat Graham (who plays Bonnie) says the hype about Klaus is not an overstatement by any means. “I think [the viewers will] be just as freaked out as we all get when we’re in his scenes,” she says. “I hope that toward the end of the season, and into next season, that fans are really able to distinguish the difference between the characters and the actors, because he’s doing such a phenomenal job as Klaus, I want people to really see that and not be like, ‘Oh I hate you, you’re such an a**hole trying to kill Elena!’ He’s just an actor.…By the end of the season he might be either really hated or really loved.”

And thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up on this CW Source chat with Candice. Accola chats about singing on the show, Caroline’s revelation to Matt, the triangle between these two and Tyler and our favourite villains, Katherine and Klaus.

More from Kat Graham and Julie Plec: Tonight’s “Know Thy Enemy”, characters’ returns & deaths + the countdown to Klaus begins

One more interview with Katerina has surfaced today, this time with E! Online. She dishes about the Sacrifice, what lengths Bonnie is willing to go for Elena to and her romance with Jeremy. Continue to read to learn who the new witch in town is, the rest of the article can be found at Watch with Kristin.

We’re not sure we love that ominous answer and it certainly didn’t put us at ease, but maybe the addition of a new witch in Mystic Falls will help fight evil and keep Bonnie living to see another day (and another season). “Lisa Tucker, who plays Greta, Jonas’ daughter, is coming to town, which is really exciting. Another witch on the scene! I’m always for more witches. The more witches the better,” Graham tells us.

Inside TV has recently sat down with Julie Plec to talk about all things “Vampire Diaries”. The writer spills up about almost every character’s storyline, including Damon’s, Caroline’s and Isobel’s. She also discusses tonight’s episode, next Mystic Falls’ full moon and the season finale.

“He [Morgan] has a depth and an intelligence as an actor, but he’s also got this great wicked grin and these dimples that make him seem both fun and naughty at the same time, even as he’s being evil or very stern,” Plec says. “So there’s a playfulness about him that Kevin and I really liked because we didn’t want Klaus to be a one-note bad guy. The more layers that we can bring to the character, the more successful the character’s gonna be, and Joseph seems to have the ability to do all that.” (Plec says he’s also read all the L.J. Smith books upon which the series is based, and has not only done his research on Klaus, but also the vampire canon and lore in general.)

TV Line, TV Guide, Zap2it & LA Times: What do Paul, Katerina and Candice have to say about the Klaus chapter?

Fans of Paul Wesley, Kat Graham and Candice Accola can’t complain of lack of chats. Interviews with the stars continue to pop up all over the Internet. TV Line, TV Guide, Zap2it and LA Times last caught up with them to talk about the rest of season 2, The Klaus Chapter. Katerina, Candice and Paul opened up about their characters, big bad Klaus, who may not make it to season 3 and more.

Show Tracker: ‘The Vampire Diaries’: ‘Every character is going to surprise you,’ says Katerina Graham

There’s some pictures of Damon and Bonnie at the ’60s dance. Are they having a moment? Or are they just working together to protect Elena?

You will have to absolutely watch that scene. … We definitely have a scene together. It’s an amazing scene. It’ll get everyone talking. It’s just a can’t-miss moment. It definitely has to deal with a great part of Bonnie’s decision on what she’s going to do. Whether that’s yes or no, I won’t say. But it’s an incredible moment in the show.

Interview round-up: TV Fanatic’s on-set video with Paul, Katerina talks the sacrifice + two Candice Accola chats

With an all new episode this Thursday, the reporters have been better than ever to “Vampire Diaries” fans. A few new interviews with the cast have popped this week. You can check them all out here, follow the links above them for the full articles. Many thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net and Candice Accola Web for the heads up!

Zap2it: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Kat Graham: Bonnie is prepared to sacrifice herself for Elena

“I was doing stunts recently that I’ve never done before,” she says, excited. “I still get to play with fire and all that crazy stuff. You’ll definitely get to see all the fun witchy cool things that people love to see. It’s very challenging. Those scenes take a lot longer than some of the other scenes because there are all these rigs and stuff like that.” She admits that there have been occasions when the stuntwork and the fire (it’s real, folks, not edited in later) have made her “very, very nervous.”

Dish of Salt: Candice Accola Takes a Bite Out of ‘Vampire Diaries’

Candice Accola chats with AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman about the love triangle between her character, Caroline, and the two men in her life, Matt and Tyler. So, who does she prefer? “The Vampire Diaries” returns with new episodes on April 7 on The CW.

Episode 20 & 22 (season finale!) titles, additional stills from season 2

Spoiler TV has recently revealed the CW primetime schedule for the entire season. Thank God, there won’t be any other breaks this year until after the finale. The schedule also shows episode 20 title – “The Last Day”. Last dance, last day… poor Mystic Falls residents, I would say!

Plus, Ian Somerhalder announced the start of season 2 finale shooting yesterday. Right after that, he tweeted a photo of his own copy of the script (right). It is titled “As I Lay Dying”, written by TBD and directed by John Behring (“Plan B”, “The Last Dance”). I’m with mixed feelings about this – happy that the cast will be finally able to catch a break, but also sad that it’s that time of the year again.

It’s here-Season finale episode (ep222) of TVD.Wow,44 episodes in 24 months.Almost 3pm,got out of bed,coffee and new script- awesomeness…

Andrea at Vampire Diaries Web has added yet another batch of extra stills and BTS pictures to their gallery. There are images from almost every single episode so far as well as a few from next week’s “Know Thy Enemy”. They’re honestly awesome, so be sure to visit the site and look through them!

UPDATE:

Vampire-Diaries.net reported the last unknown season 2 episode title last night. According to them, episode 21 will be the one where “The Sun Also Rises”. Vee also let her imagination loose and shared her thoughts on the recently revealed titles. Check them all out here. Some really interesting references there!

New interviews with Julie and Steven + more Zap2it’s set videos & TCA Tour quotes

Carina Mackenzie has posted two new video reports of her recent “Vampire Diaries” cast visits. In the first one, she chats to Katerina Graham about Damon and Bonnie. Kat shares her opinion on whether or not the two can become friends (or “more than that”), Ian Somerhalder himself and her character’s triangle with Jeremy and Luka. Read an extract here and the rest of the article (+ video) is up at Zap2it.

Meanwhile, Bonnie has her hands full juggling her feelings for Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Luka (Bryton James). “We’ll see how everything unfolds. I love where Bonnie is right now. I love that she’s with innocent Jeremy and they have this very innocence about them, and I love that connection, and think that a lot of kids can relate to that. Being that they’re friends first, and they’re really creating a foundation of friendship first, and trust, and then moving from there.”

The second report is related to Ian Somerhalder’s latest Twitter photo. It features Damon, new reporter in town Andie Star (who we wrote about last month) and third wheel Alaric. According to the actor himself, Andie is Damon’s new love interest. But don’t you think she’s acting on free will – Mr. Salvatore is compelling her, so that he can use her as a “blood source”. To learn more about Andie, head over to Zap2it or simply watch the video below.

Fanbolt and The TV Chick also posted their chats with Julie Plec and Steven R. McQueen, respectively. Julie answers fan questions, such as what’s Bonnie’s family history, what’s ahead for Bamon and Delena and how does Klaus’s casting go. There’s even a tiny little mention of the “Vampire Diaries” finale (of the season and the series both). Find the answers of all these questions over at Fanbolt. On the other hand, Steven talks to Alix about Jeremy’s development so far, his attitude to Bonnie and Elena as well as what we can look forward to in the second half of the season. Visit The TV Chick for the entire chat.

Finally, Teen Television has some more quotes from the Winter TCA Panel. Nina and Candice discuss their characters’ progress, what has drawn them to playing on a vampire show, what to expect in the near future and more. Check out the full story at Teen Television, thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up!
