For those of you wanting to see more interaction between Bonnie and Damon, the second “History Repeating” webclip certainly delivers. You have a whole scene between the pair.
CW Source posted a video interview with Candice Accola, in which she talks about the “Haunted” set, Caroline’s relationship with her mother, her relationship with Damon, working with Ian Somerhalder, Bonnie’s necklace, and the real-world vampire subculture and mythology.
Thanks to Reemy for the heads up!
We’ve got stills from episode eight of the Vampire Diaries, “162 Candles” up in the gallery. Not really helping with the withdrawal, we have to admit. ;)
There’s also another one from “Haunted” of Elena and Vicki (first thumbnail above) via Entertainment Weekly, along with an article discussing the episode (thanks, @Joselito4390!):
“The school does an awesome haunted house Halloween party, where the parking lot is decorated and the whole interior hallway of the school is this cool, creepy haunted house,” Plec tells EW. “And all the action of the episode culminates there when you’ve got people in vampire costumes running around. You’ve got monsters and demons and, as everything with Vicki comes to a head, as she fights off her urges to feed, we’re in this haunted house and we’re at this Halloween party, and the s— hits the fan, as they say.”
Kayla Ewell will be a guest on That Morning Show tomorrow morning, October 8th. She’ll be talking Vicki and Vampire Diaries, and you can catch the interview between 6-9 a.m. on E! Entertainment Network.
Candice Accola talks Caroline and Damon in PopSugar’s “6 Reasons You Can’t Live Without Vampires” video. Vampire Diaries talk starts at the 2:00 minute mark.
We tweeted this last night, but in case you missed it, via TV Guide’s MegaBuzz: a fan’s Vampire Diaries theory and Julie Plec’s sly spin on the issue.
UPDATE: And via Ask Ausiello: Find out why you shouldn’t miss this week’s episode OR next week’s.
There are a couple of clips from next week’s episode of the Vampire Diaries, “You’re Undead to Me”, on the cwgossip YouTube channel. The first is Caroline-centric with a splash of Damon, and the second is of Elena and Matt discussing Stefan, and Stefan’s being recognised by an old man.
Seventeen Magazine has a lighthearted Q&A with Candice Accola where she talks about the usual – living and working in Atlanta, hanging with the cast, and why those scripts are on lockdown:
17: Are you on the edge of your seat every time you get a new script?
CA: We actually got in trouble, [but] we’re all blaming Nina [Dobrev] who plays Elena. Nina took the script from the hair and makeup trailer because we’ve been dying to know what will happen next. And then she got caught, and so now, they have scripts on lockdown, and they won’t tell us any information!
And this afternoon had two radio interviews with Vampire Diaries cast members:
The first was BuzzWorthy’s interview with Michael Trevino who, according to many of you on Twitter, had a way better radio voice than the guy interviewing him. (Radio can’t have him, he’s on our TV.) Ends up Michael has also read the books (the first four), hints that perhaps there’s a reason why Tyler is such a jerk and bully (and maybe it has something to do with his parents), and that we might be seeing a different side of Tyler in upcoming episodes (especially when it comes to Vicki). He also played coy on the Lockwood family in general and referred to Mystic Falls’ history having a very real impact on the newest generation. We’re also pretty sure he dropped a super-vague hint about a particular character’s appearance later on down the road. You can listen to the entire interview (half hour) over at BuzzWorthy.
And on Stardish Radio, Jasmine Guy shed a little more light on her upcoming role as Grams, Bonnie’s witchy (and, uh, drunk?) grandmother, whom she apparently has the honor of naming and was soliciting suggestions (which included the Salem-inspired Tituba and Katerina’s suggestion of Sadie). She also revealed the name of Bonnie’s great-great-great-great grandmother (hover to see), Birdy Mae, and said she looks forward to seeing more of not only the race dynamics of the show’s Civil War-era flashbacks, but also the way vampires and witches interact, and what the “rules” will be for the show’s witches. Listen to the interview over at Stardish.
And finally, there’s an itty bitty Paul video snippet over at People.com where he talks about the best thing about growing up in New Jersey.
They also have yet another interview with Paul at Comic Con. He doesn’t really say much new here, but for posterity’s sake:
NYLON’s The Insider has a Q&A with Candice where she talks Twilight and True Blood comparisons, being a Japanese pop star, what Vampire Diaries‘ blood tastes like (Nina says it tastes like pancakes), and Caroline Forbes:
I know you can’t talk too much about your character yet, since you don’t want to give anything away, but your manager told me she’s like the Spawn of Satan?
She’s not the Spawn of Satan! No! She’s just misunderstood! Seriously, she’s just got a lot going on. And I love playing her. The lines I get to say, you know, it’s fun to be sassy or unapologetically conniving and manipulative.
Katerina will be sitting with Star Dish Radio tonight to talk about her film/TV/music career and playing Bonnie Bennett on Vampire Diaries. It’s a live interview set to begin at 10 p.m. ET. If you have a question you’re dying to ask her, the call-in number is (347) 945-5423.
Ian talks to New York Mag’s Vulture about Vampire Diaries and Lost:
What was it like for you the first time you saw yourself in the vampire makeup?
It’s a lot of fun because the second that the eyes and the teeth go in, I become a complete different person, and there, all of a sudden, seems to be this license to do things and manipulate people and be somewhat scary. And it’s kind of powerful at times, especially with the lighting and everything. I mean, I notice on set when I have all this makeup on, some of the other cast members are definitely affected by the look of it. It’s a simple look, but it’s very specific and it looks very real, very natural.
CWTelevision has posted two clips from next week’s episode, “Friday Night Bites.” First clip features the ever-so-charming Mr. Tanner and Stefan, plus some field action with Tyler, Matt, Elena, Bonnie, Caroline and…Damon? (Stefan = Wide Receiver = YES!) Second clip features Stefan, Caroline, and Damon.
Korbi Ghosh from Zap2it talked to Kevin Williamson about the Vampire Diaries when he appeared at the Apple store in Santa Monica this past Tuesday. There’s a clip posted of the first five minutes (the full chat will be available from iTunes in about a week) in which Kevin talks about the trials of shooting pilots, the books, liking the vampire genre and Caroline’s screen presence.
Courtesy of a kind soul, we have some additional stills from “Night of the Comet” (EP02/101) and “Friday Night Bites” (EP03/102) to share with you today. And yep, still loving Caroline’s scarf.
Vampire Diaries has officially joined the Television Without Pity club. If you’re a TWoP addict (like me), you know to tighten your snark cap before delving into their recaps. Vampire Diaries fans have been snarking their own canon for years, so watching others take the reins on the TV show is going to be entertaining indeed. (Not that we won’t be having our own fun in this regard, but we’re into sharing.) Cindy McLennan has posted her recaplet of the pilot (full recap to come later), TV is the Answer tackles big questions, and Vampire Diaries now has its own shiny, official forum.
