Candice Accola interview goodness: Zap2it, TV Guide & Wetpaint

Candice Accola is not only a fan favourite, but reporter one. This past month, the blonde talked to various media about Caroline, her relationship with Matt and Tyler and what’s to come. Continue to read for the best snippets and visit the links above them for more.

Wetpaint Exclusive: Candice Accola – Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Who would you prefer to date: a werewolf or a vamp?
This has nothing to do with who Caroline should date, but if I had to honestly answer that question, it would probably be a werewolf because I’d rather deal with just one night of the month than every single day of high-strung, potential death. You could deal with, like, one day a month he’s going to be an asshole. I think that’s doable.

Zap2it: ‘Vampire Diaries’ star Candice Accola: Will Caroline forgive Tyler? Plus, musical moments and birthday plans!

“What I love about Caroline’s arc this season is that she’s just gained so much perspective, which in turn has made her grow up so much,” Accola says. “Whereas before, throughout Season 1, I feel like Caroline would hold a grudge, [now she knows] she’s not perfect either. On her first night as a vampire she took advantage of a nurse and killed an innocent man. She’s killed and she’s asked to be forgiven, so she has it in her.”

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.”

Chats, chats, chats: Zimbio interview with Sara Canning, Dawn Olivieri talks to TV Guide & EW + Steven spills up to The TV Chick

Thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up on this Zimbio chat with Sara Canning. She comments on her career before the show, castmate Matt Davis and shooting love scenes with him. Tonight’s episode is also mentioned. Read the entire story over at Zimbio.

Zimbio: What is your typical day like filming on Vampire Diaries?
Sara: Getting up really early. I do a vocal warm-up in my car. Then I show up to set and go into hair and makeup; there’s anywhere from one to six of us in there at any time. The cast are my really great friends but also great people to watch work. We all jive together really well. Last week I shot a scene with six other cast members, it was all of us, for one day, in one room, shooting a bunch of scenes. And we just looked at each other and were like, ‘How good do we have it?’

Guest star Dawn Olivieri was interviewed this week, too. Robyn Ross has a wonderful chat with her up at TV Guide. She teases tonight’s “dinner party”, what the future holds for her and how long Andie will stick around town.

Mandi Bierly caught up with Dawn as well. The star dishes about Damon’s compulsion on her character, how it affects her as well as the struggle she’s going through. Visit Inside TV for all this + some great stories.

Also, The TV Chick posted her interview with Steven R. McQueen today. The actor discusses THE kiss, the consequences of it, the relationship between the Gilberts, etc. And here’s what he’d like to see next for Jeremy:

And what would you like to see from Jeremy coming up in the 2nd half of season 2? He’s really taken on this nice big role.
I think it’d be interesting to see him be more involved with his family legacy and starting to get involved with the training of being a vampire hunter. Whether Alaric takes him under his wing, or Uncle John, and just kind of get mentored in the right direction.

Head over to The TV Chick for the rest of the article.

TV Guide talks to David & Kevin, Sara Canning supports Teens for Jeans + still hope for Damon and Elena?

Thanks to @IHeartTVD for the heads up that Sara was at Aeropostale to support Teens for Jeans. It’s a campaign that collects jeans for homeless teens. If you haven’t donate yet, there’s still time to do so! Just bring them to your nearest Aeropostale store till this Sunday, February 13th. See a few pictures at BuzzFocus.

Mega Buzz‘s latest spoiler chat features some “Vampire Diaries” as well. With the recent Damon events, Delena fans haven’t been very happy. But according to Julie Plec herself, they shouldn’t lose hope. She says, “There are big moments coming up all around for them [Stefan, Elena and Damon].” Get more scoop over at TV Guide.

Kevin Williamson and David Anders stopped by TV Guide, too. David’s interview with Robyn Ross stars with an upcoming Elena line saying, “Why does everything John touches fall apart?”. The actor claims his character wants only good for his daughter, though. He also teases the reason for his return will be revealed within the next five episodes or so. And if you’re curious to know who might pay a surprise visit to Mystic Falls, just continue to read (highlight for spoilers). Head over to TV Guide for the entire story.

Will daddy and daughter make up? Anders teases that Elena’s familial web will only get more tangled in the coming weeks. “There might be a surprise visit from Isobel,” he says.

Damian Holbrook posted his chat with Kevin yesterday, too. The executive producer talks about last night’s “Crying Wolf” in particular. As the ones who watched the episode know, “S–t goes down.” Go here to find out why.

Siding with the furrier folks in town could come with a hefty price — especially for a certain Salvatore in possession of that mysterious moonstone — but given the shaky state of his relationship with Caroline, young Mr. Lockwood doesn’t really have a pack of options. “He doesn’t know whom to trust because Caroline lied to him about everything,” says Williamson. “He’s very lonely and vulnerable, but he’s also an aggressive guy, so he may not respond appropriately.”

MTV’s Valentine video with Nina, more from Katerina’s Troix shoot + chats with Ian, Steven & Daniel

MTV recently caught up with Nina Dobrev to talk about Valentine’s Day.  She mentions Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” and her actual opinion on February 14th. Also, she speculates on how Elena and Katherine would celebrate it. Play the video to learn her answers and MTV has a short article. Thanks, Vampire-Diaries.net!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Laura Prudom sat down with Ian Somerhalder to discuss all things “Vampire Diaries”. The hottie answers questions about emotional (and evil) Damon, his interactions with Andie and Jules and Damon’s part in the upcoming vampire-werewolf war. He also gives some scoop on episode 15 “The Dinner Party” (featuring flashbacks) and his Ian Somerhalder foundation. The full chat is available at TV Squad.

Mandi Bierly from EW goes to Steven R. McQueen for spoilers. And he doesn’t let us down either. Steven comments on Jeremy’s relationship with Bonnie and John Gilbert. Plus, he tells us whether we’ll see him by Damon’s side again any time soon. The article is up over at Inside TV.

Spoilers selection: Crying wolf promo, synopsis of 215 & 216, episode stills and more

TV Line has recently reported that the search for Klaus is finally over. The legendary vampire will be probably played by Joseph Morgan. As you can guess, this immediately became top “Vampire Diaries” news. Although the actor’s credits include mostly British films and TV series, he does have some intriguing roles. Back in 2003, he starred in “Master and Commander” along with Russell Crow. Morgan has also played Philotas in the biography movie about the life of Alexander the Great (starring Colin Farrell, Angelina Jolie). Something about his face (right) reminds me of Klaus. I think he would make a fierce Original! What’s your opinion? Learn more over at TV Line.

Let’s continue with the tidbits, shall we? In this article, Natalie Abrams reviews the latest TVD spoilers from TV Guide. She comments on the showdown between vampires and werewolves, warlocks Martin, Jr. and Martin, Sr., Elena’s destiny, etc. Great recap, especially if you haven’t had a chance to caught up with the news lately!

TV Guide Magazine also highlights the top moments from “Daddy Issues” in its 7-13 February issue. As usual, spoiler warning for the ones, who haven’t seen the episode yet. HUGE thanks to tariel22 via @tvdfansonline, the scan is up at their site!

Clevver TV caught up with Stephen Amell’s (Brady) cousin, Robbie last week. He spills up about his cousin’s guest role on “The Vampire Diaries”, teasing he’s going be around for two episodes. It means 214 “Crying Wolf” is his final ep. Why is he gone after only two weeks? Are the Salvatore brothers to blame? That, we’ll see this Thursday. For now, enjoy Clevver TV’s report. Thanks, Vampire Diaries Online!

Official descriptions for episode 15 (“The Dinner Party”) and 16 (“The House Guest”) (click to visit VampireSite.net) have been released as well. Airing February 17th and February 24th, respectively.

In addition to “The Dinner Party” synopsis, episode stills have been revealed. Third flashback episode this season = plenty of Stefan and Damon. Head over to Vampire Diaries Web to check the images out.

CW television has uploaded an extended trailer for “Crying Wolf”. This week, “a romantic getaway is about to get some unwanted guests”. All new “The Vampire Diaries” Thursday 8/7c. See you there!

Zap2it & EW: More tidbits from the Vampire Diaries cast

Zap2it‘s @cadlymack hasn’t been doing anything but teasing us this week. Following her video interviews with Kat and Ian, fellow “Vampire Diaries” fan published new snippets from Wesley and Dobrev as well as clips featuring Somerhalder and Trevino (click to check them out).

Before things go terribly wrong, fans of Stefan and Elena as a couple will be pleased to see some sweet, happy moments, including an emotional scene where they discuss the reality of Elena’s mortality. After all, if Elena remains human, she is inevitably going to age and someday die — while Stefan will stay 17 forever. “There’s a lovely scene that we do at the lake house discussing that,” Wesley says. “Touching lightly upon it without hitting you over the head, you know what I mean? It’s really kind of beautiful.”

Read the rest of the chat with Paul here.

“She feels like everyone around her is against her,” Dobrev says. “She has one thing in mind: she wants to sacrifice herself to save her family and her friends, and they are hell-bent on stopping her. It almost feels like everyone is against her. Now, her father comes home on top of everything, and he’s in cahoots with everyone about it.”

The entire Nina interview – at Zap2it.

EW‘s recently caught up with Michael Trevino and Ian Somerhalder, too. Michael speculates what could happen when already too confused Tyler finds about the Sun and the Moon curse. The actor also spoils his character will have some serious choices to make rather sooner than later – and they will have quite an impact on vampires and werewolves both. Visit PopWatch for the full story.

On the other hand, Ian talks about filming while having walking pneumonia. As you probably remember, Mr. Somerhalder was sick in the last two months of 2010 – in other words, from episode 9 to 12. Despite that fact, he didn’t go home (as normal people would do), but continue shooting. Marcos Siega’s return and the possibility of “Vampire Diaries” set cursed are also mentioned. Find the whole article over at Inside TV.

Oh, and there’s a “Where Were We” slideshow up at Entertainment Weekly. It includes tidbits from almost every cast member. Must read!

The TV Chick set interviews with Ian, Candice, Kat, Matt, Sara & Julie

Alix Sternberg from The TV Chick has posted LOTS of chats with “The Vampire Diaries” crew lately. After the Steven R. McQueen one, the reporter released interviews with Katerina Graham, Candice Accola, Ian Somerhalder, Julie Plec, Matt Davis and Sara Canning. Excerpts from them can be found below and click on the links above each quote for more. Plus, head over to The TV Chick for her video with Candice.

FROM THE SET: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Kat Graham (Bonnie) from The Vampire Diaries

And do you have a favorite moment or scene that you’ve shot so far?
The first thing that comes to mind when you ask me that is when Elena comes up the stairs after she’s been kidnapped and I had written her a note. I wound up getting a nose bleed just from that thing. And she walks up the stairs and I ran to her and hugged her. That scene didn’t have any words for me but just having that kind of bond with Nina, [it’s] probably one of my favorite moments just because it’s so real for me. That was probably one of my favorite moments that I’ve shot.

FROM THE SET: INTERVIEW: Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) from The Vampire Diaries

What has been your biggest challenge playing Damon?
The softer side of Sears. You know what I mean? It’s like (sings) “Come see the softer side of…Salvatore.” [Ed. Note: He has us all cracking up]
It’s tough, because there has to be truth and there’s a lot of real pain buried in that humor and that sort of the maniacal killer in him is starting to wane by virtue of the fact that again, not to sound like a broken record, all the stakes have been raised because he cares about people now. There are stakes.

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.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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!
