Are you feeling a little Vampire deprived now that you’ve seen Eclipse? We strongly suggest giving the CW’s The Vampire Diaries a chance. The show is filled with sexy vampires, action packed plots, and cliff hangers that will blow your mind.
Stefan, Damon, and Elena otherwise known as Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder (from Lost), and Nina Dobrev made an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday and sat down with E! online to answer some questions about the new season.
Take a look at the cast’s interview’s after the jump. Make sure to check out Ian’s answers. They are pretty entertaining….he’s right on the money too! Katherine = a crazy, manipulative bitch. Enjoy!
What’s up for Damon this season?It’s not
necessarily going to be the funnest season for Damon. I think that he’s
going to challenged a lot where I don’t think he was used to being
challenged. I think there are some things that are gonna wreak more
havoc in Mystic Falls than he probably did in season one and it’s gonna
be a problem so those challenges are something to look forward to
’cause it’s not boring.
Will we keep seeing the humanity in Damon or will he revert back to his evil ways?Well, when I think that he finds out it wasn’t Elena, he’s gonna be a little pissed off.
Does he still want to be with Katherine after he finds out it’s her?He
still wants Katherine like an idiot. It’s weird you know, love is a
really blinding force. It forces us to do things, stupid things that we
all every single one of us has experienced it.
Will Damon’s feelings for Katherine transfer over to Elena?I
don’t know. Actually to be honest with you, I don’t know. What I’d like
to see is for him to realize [that Katherine] is a crazy, manipulative
bitch and really a lot of where he comes from, his traits, he learned
from her and if he were able to look inward at himself and say, “These
are not very high quality traits of a person.”
In the sneak peek clips we saw, SPOILER ALERT: Katherine says she wants Stefan. How will that make Damon feel?That’s another thing that’s just going to crush him.
How will it affect Damon and Stefan?A tentative
alliance. That’s the thing. That’s the interesting thought is that it
might actually form, that alliance may have to get stronger because
she’s going to wreak havoc for both of them, whether Katherine wants
Stefan or Damon, Stefan wants nothing to do with her, for the most
part. Until he does. If he does.
Do you think Elena brings out Damon’s humanity?I think that’s the only time you ever see it is when he’s with her. I mean Nina Dobrev’ll do that to you. No two ways about it.
Which Salvatore brother are you rooting for at this point for Elena to be with?Defan! Their undisovered brother who is the perfect mix between the two.
Will you be kissing Ian again this season?I will be kissing at least one Salvatore brother this season.
What’s up with Katherine coming back? Last
season I got to do it very little. I mostly played Elena and we teased
to Katherine a little bit, but this year there’s gonna be a lot more
Katherine. She’s back and she’s wreaking havoc and she’s up to no good.
So it’s gonna be fun to kind of step into Damon’s shoes a little bit
and play with them and mess with everyone’s minds.
How are you differentiating between Katherine and Elena as far as appearance?Between
the wardrobe stylist and the creators, we all kind of collaborate, but
I’m very outspoken about the way I want Elena and Katherine to look and
the fact that I want them to look differently. And one of the main
things for example is Elena is a flared jean girl and Katherine is a
skinny jeans and heels kind of girl. There’s little subtle things that
create a different vision visually. They have to look different as much
as they look the same.
How’s Stefan dealing with that porch kiss?For
me, I’m brokenhearted about the kiss between Damon and Elena. Because
as sociopathic and malicious as he is, and maybe a murderer, he knows
that I love him. It’s the worst insult. At this point Stefan doesn’t
empathize as much or care. He’s more like, You know what, I’m not going
to deal with this guy.
Does it change his feelings for Elena?Elena,
Elena, Elena. He loves her. It’s sort of a transformation. He’s coming
to terms with himself, season two is a lot more about acceptance. This
is what I am. He’s going to do other things. Laugh, be jovial.
Now that Katherine has said she’s back for Stefan, is he interested?It’s
a mix, he thought he was in love with Katherine at one point, she’s the
person who is responsible for his immortality. It’s heavy. He meets her
with disgust and at the same time a little bit of interest.What do you want for Stefan?I
love not necessarily the dark side, I love that as well, but I like
Stefan to have other tactics other than victimized and accepting the
burden. And be more proactive.
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER KEVIN WILLIAMSON
What can we expect this season?Well, you know
Katherine being back in Mystic Falls is a bit of a game changer for the
show. We have to find out how is this going to affect Damon and Stefan
in terms of Katherine now being back in town and I don’t know. It’s so
hard to talk about it without giving anything away because it seems
like everything is a surprise! She comes back and as you saw in the
clip, she came back and pretty much stated why she’s back and it’ll be
fun to sort of watch that play out, but if you’ve watched our show in
the past, you know there’s always more than one reason someone’s there
or some of the motives of our characters. So it’s a huge turning. Well,
she said she wanted Stefan. She came back for Stefan.
Could there be other reasons?Maybe. Could be.
What will we find out about Katherine?There’s
so much to still know about 1864. What happened? Why wasn’t she in the
tomb? How did she escape? Where did she go? Why did she come to Mystic
Falls to begin with? What brought her to Mystic Falls? And so there are
all those fun questions that we’re gonna explore and how the Lockwood
curse figures into it.
How is Katherine different now than she was in 1864? She’s
meaner. It’s going to be interesting to watch. She’s different in the
sense that she doesn’t have to wear corsets anymore and she’s
different, well I’m scared to say it because it’ll tease where she’s
been. It’s a bit of a secret what she’s been up to.
Will we see flashbacks of characters that died last season?Yes.
Will we see Isobel again?Not right away. I
don’t have any plans in the first, you know we’ve sort of broken the
whole season, but we haven’t individually broken down the back 9
episodes so I’d hate to say no and then turn around and do it and make
a liar out of me. So I would say not in the first 12.
How many flashback episodes will there be?Certainly we have three flashback episodes planned, and I’m guessing there’ll be four.
What can you tell us about Tyler’s journey this year?Tyler’s
going to sort of learn through the help of his Uncle Mason who comes to
town in the very first episode, who and what he is. He’s gonna learn
about the curse, who he is and how he responds to it. It’s going to be
a typical growing up story, a sort of coming of age tale, but it’s
horrible to have all these questions about why you’re the way you are
and why you’re so angry and why you always feel so lost and then you
get the answer and you don’t like it. So it’s gonna be a fun journey
for him…and violent.
