PW: I’m guessing that happened after filming Caroline’s torture scene?
Stephen: Yes. That was a really fun scene, and all the credit there goes to Candice Accola. She was the one with small explosives strapped to her arms, fishing bullets out of her skull. I just sat back and got to be creepy [laughs]. That was a fun scene.
On the other hand, Nina spills up about balancing between two characters, Katherine’s different faces, last week’s and this week’s shocking twists, etc. You can find an interesting quote below and go to New York Post for the full story.
PW: Will this finale set up the events of season three the way “Founder’s Day” set up season two?
Nina: It does. There’s not just one – there’s two or three kind of big twists that change the course of everyone’s lives, and they’re unexpected. It affects Damon & Elena hugely. It effects Stefan more than anyone would have imagined. Jeremy’s life is just completely turned around, and almost confusing – you’ll see why soon enough. But it initiates these storylines that will flourish in season three.
May has probably been the busiest month of the year for “Vampire Diaries” stars. They have been giving hundreds of interviews, mainly about the May 12th finale and next season. Below, you’ll find chats with Joseph, Candice, Michael, Zach, Michaela and Lisa. The usual spoiler warning is available once again.
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!
• 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.”
“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.”
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.
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.
Following her interviews with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, Gabrielle Compolongo has posted her next video from the “Vampire Diaries” set. In it, she chats with Katerina Graham. The two discuss her character’s relationship with Elena’s little brother, the possibility of seeing Lucy again, etc. See part one below and go to TV Fanatic for the other two.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Plus, Show Tracker has recently interviewed Julie Plec. The writer previews what’s to happen in the Klaus Chapter. She also comments on two of the show’s triangles – Stefan/Elena/Damon and Matt/Caroline/Tyler. Head over to LA Times for more of their chat.
“There’s one weapon, two originals. I wonder what’s going to happen,” Plec mused coyly during an interview with Showtracker. “That is their big conundrum. As soon as we get back from the hiatus, we’re going to start asking that question and seeing what our characters decide to do about it will be pretty big.”
Disney veteran Tiya Sircar (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Hannah Montana”) has joined the cast of popular CW series “The Vampire Diaries” in a guest-starring role as Amiee Bradley, a high school student who becomes involved in the supernatural activities in Mystic Falls.
“It’s been so much fun working with such a great cast,” says Sircar. “I’d love to come back for more episodes, but nobody is safe in Mystic Falls! Working with the boys in this show could make a girl’s head spin. They’re all so easy on the eyes. But what’s better, they happen to be really sweet as well.”
Sircar’s potentially recurring role will debut in episode three of the upcoming second season of the series. But Sircar is no stranger to working with hunky leading men. Her role in the 2009 blockbuster “17 Again” had Sircar slapping teen sensation Zac Efron, on whom her character had a major crush. In her next big screen role in the upcoming comedy “Friends with Benefits” Sircar is working with the king of sexy himself, Justin Timberlake.
Named one of the 40 hottest South Asians in the World by Anokhi Magazine, Sircar made the 2010 Sexy & Successful List. After popping up in fashion magazines for her red carpet style, Sircar took time out of her filming schedule last summer to give fans organic and eco-friendly beauty advice as a celebrity guest editor for BeautyBlitz.
Canadian actress Sara Canning is best known for her role as Jenna Sommers on The CW’s freshman TV drama The Vampire Diaries. As the young aunt and new guardian of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and her brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), the 20-something who was always the cool, fun one, now finds the transition to responsible authority figure to be a bit of a challenge.
The show, which follows the relationship between the human Elena, her vampire boyfriend Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder), premiered to the highest ratings in the network’s history and has since gone on to win the 2010 People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama.
In this exclusive interview with IESB, Sara Canning talked about the wild ride she’s been on with the successful new series and how she can’t wait to see where Season 2 will take them.
IESB: How did you become an actor? Was it just something you always wanted to do?
Sara: There is someone who played a big part in it. When I was 12, I was in a drama class in my junior high school and I auditioned for a play. We would use our after-school time and we were putting on this production, and I just had this really awesome teacher who was into the more quirky sides of theater. He would go into the dark side of Shakespeare, and that kind of stuff. So, I think he really influenced me, just wanting to be a performer and becoming really interested in theater, and then that developed into an interest in film and television, later on.
