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.”

Bite On This interviews Chris Mollere & release date for The Vampire Diaries soundtrack

Chris Mollere, the Vampire Diaries music supervisor, was recently interviewed by Bite On This. You can listen to his interview here. It is really great, so do not miss it!

Vampire-Diaries.net were lucky enough to talk to him as well! Here are a few tidbits he mentioned in both interviews thanks to them:

    • The official Vampire Diaries soundtrack will be released October 12th on EMI/Virgin. The soundtrack will feature selections from Season 1 and Season 2.
    • He couldn’t say too much about the final tracklisting, but the special TVD Mix of “Bloodstream” by Stateless – unique to the show – will be on the soundtrack.
    • He couldn’t drop any hints about artists featured in the Season 2 premiere because he’s pulling together the music for it now. “We’ve got a lot of stuff to answer. I don’t know if it’s going to be the most song-driven episode we’ve had.”
