Nina Dobrev is at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote her new movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but she’s taken some time to talk to the media about her future with The Vampire Diaries as well. Over at MTV.com, she discusses how long she thinks the show should continue:
And at E!Online, Nina talks about how Elena’s potential transition might affect her:
“If she steps on an ant and kills the ant, she freaks out and starts crying, or if somebody tells a joke, she starts laughing like a maniac. So all of her emotions are heightened.”
Here they are! The CW has released 16 IMAGES from The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere episode, Growing Pains (EP401). Check them out in the Gallery or click on the images below. The episode airs Thursday, October 11, at 8 p.m.
And we have added the first batch of official Season 4 promo portraits to the Gallery as well!
As part of their fall TV preview, Entertainment Weekly talked to Julie Plec and Nina Dobrev about the various transitions – including high school graduation – coming up for characters on season 4 of The Vampire Diaries. We’ll avoid the slightly spoilery specifics, but Julie Plec had this to say about these transitions in general:
“But look, what I’ve been saying a lot about this season to the people at the network and in general is that the writers and I are really focusing on that time in your life as your adolescence is coming to an end, that milestone of graduation, and you are making decisions: Do I leave home for good? Do I stay? Can I part with this town that’s been so important to me? Do I part with these people who have been so important to me? Am I going out into the world and starting a life and growing up?”
There’s more, including Paul Wesley‘s take on Stefan’s eternal youth and Nina‘s hopes for a certain big senior year event.
