Behind the scenes of Paul’s People shoot, interview with New York Post

Remember those features of our very own Ian and Paul in People? Of course you do, how could you forget them. 😉 Well, People released their interview with Paul as well. The actor explains why the Sexiest Man honour could work against him. There’s also a behind the scenes footage featured in the video. Click here to watch the whole chat. Favourite moment? “The less sexy you try to be, the more sexy I think you are.” This is why we love Paul!

The actor also talked to PopWrap. He teases the last two episodes this year, making us crave for more. Paul also mentions the werewolves (whose popularity is definitely growing lately), the Originals (including Klaus himself), etc. Thanks to NYPost on YouTube for the embed. You can watch the interview at PopWrap as well.

Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec to The TV Chick: “2.06 is fun.”

There’s so much story so far this season. Are you confident it will take you through 22 episodes?

KW: Yes. I mean, we are already into the third season. We are actually trying to figure out the breaking point. Where are we going to stop at the end of this season? We kind of know where our season finale. We know what we want the last — I know a couple of the cliffhangers already, at least a lot of them, and I’m trying to figure out “where do I stop?” It’s so much fun. It’s a hard show to write. There’s a lot of mythology. I like slowing it down for the relationship stuff. So you don’t know how far we’re going to get.

JSYK chats with Nina Dobrev and Katerina Graham

Yup, witches will probably fall into that stuck-in-the-middle category. Katerina reveals that the show is currently filming episode six and she hasn’t dealt with any werewolves yet, but says, “Witches are kind of in the middle of everything. Always. The humans and the vampires. The vampires and the werewolves…People are going to want to manipulate Bonnie to get what they want. I think that goes for anyone who’s trying to become powerful or strong or destroy any other supernatural creature. They’re going to want to use Bonnie.”

The TV Chick talks to Vampire Diaries producers: “It’s a huge journey.”

The Vampire Diaries returns tonight! The sizzling, action-packed, full of crazy twists second season premiere will leave you gasping at your television. Or at the very least, it left me doing that. I could not be happier that this show is back. I love being transported week after week into the mysterious Mystic Falls, and let’s be honest, the Salvatore Brothers are quite eye-pleasing. I recently had the chance to catch up with the cast and producers of the show. Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, the absolutely brilliant (and super sweet) Executive Producers had a lot to say about the upcoming season, werewolves and flashback episodes.

What can we expect in Mystic Falls in the upcoming season?

Kevin Williamson: Katherine being back in Mystic Falls is a bit of a game changer for the show. How is this going to affect Damon and Stefan in terms of Katherine now being back in town? And it’s so hard to talk about it without giving anything away. Everything’s a surprise. She comes back and pretty much stated why she was back. It will be fun to sort of watch that play out. If you watched our show in the past, you know there’s always more than one reason someone’s there and some of the motives of our characters. It’s a huge journey.

TV Guide chats to Nina Dobrev and Julie Plec

SPOILER ALERT: This story contains some key plot details from Season 2.

When we learned that Katherine was not among those unfortunate vampire souls sealed inside the tomb, it was clear that Stefan and Damon’s complicated lover would show up on The Vampire Diaries at some point. Her sneak attack on Damon during the season finale was just the beginning. Season 2 promises to be, as the CW’s promos shout, the year of the Kat.

“We felt like it would be really cool and powerful to bring in the woman these men loved first,” says executive producer Julie Plec. “Just when you thought you were [deciding] who’s right for Elena — Damon or Stefan — you add the, well, what if Katherine doesn’t want any of that to happen?”

As a result, Nina Dobrev is pulling double duty this season, playing both good-hearted Elena and the Machiavellian Katherine with an unprecedented frequency. “It’s hard enough to play one character, much less two,” Plec says.

The Vampire Diaries Star Katerina Graham on Sparks With Damon and Being Team Stefan

Just in time for The Vampire Diaries’ second season premiere, I chatted with Katerina Graham, who plays Bonnie on the series. She spilled the beans on whom she thinks Elena should be with and a possible love connection between Bonnie and a certain sexy vampire (though she played it very, very coy). Graham dished on the new werewolves, and also revealed her fever for a young man named Justin Bieber.

BuzzSugar: What are you most excited about in the upcoming season?
Katerina Graham: I’m really excited about the season premiere, honestly. There have been so many episodes shot after that — we’re on episode six — but I’m really dying to see the season premiere, I’m just dying!

Buzz: Has it been weird acting with Nina Dobrev as Katherine and Elena now?
KG: No! Nina’s always great to do scenes with, and just because she’s a new character she’s still very much Nina Dobrev, still very much that person to work with. She’s handling Katherine really really well.

Buzz: I’ve noticed some sexual tension between Damon and Bonnie.
KG: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Buzz: Is there any possibility of a love connection between them?
KG: I don’t know . . . that’s the answer! Next question, next question!
