Claire Holt recently chatted with Zap2it about The Originals spinoff and more. On Rebekah and Katherine:
“It’s kind of funny,” Claire tells us. “They’re so similar in a way, but so different in a way. I think Rebekah likes having the power. She likes controlling situations. I think she’s liked to play that sort of vixen role in Mystic Falls, and Katherine has been the ultimate vixen, so I don’t think they’re going to be the best of friends, that’s for sure.”

Parade Magazine sat down with Ian Somerhalder to discuss The Vampire Diaries and lots more. Watch the video below:
The Vampire Diaries returns tomorrow with Bring It On (EP416), so we also have the return of TV Guide‘s Vampire Diaries Bite video feature. This week, Ian Somerhalder discusses the new Elena:
“It’s super cool to see this super empowered woman where the boys aren’t scared she’s going to walk out the door and get killed because she’s a badass chick who can hold her own.”
There’s a lot of talk about Caroline’s relationships with Tyler and Klaus, but does it have to be all about the romance? Nope! In an interview with TV Guide, Candice Accola discusses another potential path for Caroline:
“What brings out Caroline’s openness is that… Klaus [reminds her] that there’s a whole other world out there,” Accola says. “She can travel and experience things and grow and learn, and that’s been implanted in Caroline’s brain and she can’t get it out. Klaus is the only person she can dream big with. It’s not that ‘we can run away in the sunset and be in love’ dream that she has with Tyler, but it’s running off to Paris alone and being independent. That’s enticing. … Klaus has aroused those thoughts in Caroline.”
Entertainment Tonight talked to Nina Dobrev about That Thing That Happened and how it will affect Elena going forward. We don’t want to spoil any non-U.S. fans who haven’t seen Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414) yet, so here’s just a bit of a quote. You can read the rest at ETonline.
ETonline: This season has been a thrill from the start. What’s your feeling about season four?
Nina Dobrev: It’s been really cool, especially because you always hear actors say doing a TV show for X amount of years can be boring and repetitive, but over the last four years, Elena has been changing and evolving and growing so much. Julie [Plec, executive producer] has done such an incredible job of keeping it fresh and exciting and making me excited to come to work every day.
We know Vaughn (guest star Charlie Bewley) will play a big role in this week’s new episode, Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414). In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, TV Guide talks to Ian Somerhalder about whether Vaughn will pose a threat to Damon in particular. And . . . looks like yes:
“Damon would be an extremely difficult man to get tied up to a tree, unless you’re Elena or some hot sorority girl who is compelled to do so. So the fact that he’s there means Vaughn knows what he’s doing.”
In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, TV Guide talks to Ian Somerhalder about whether he thinks Elena is in love with Damon and whether he’d be able to embrace that love.
“Even as dumb and crazy as Damon can be, it’s like, ‘ouch fire hot, ouch fire hot, ouch fire hot.’ I would hope the man would take a break. Hell, people get burned over a six-month relationship and take a year to heal. If you got screwed over for 150 years, you can imagine how that carries forward.”
Claire Holt spoke with Entertainment Tonight about what has happened to her character Rebekah this season and what’s to come in the next few weeks, including Rebekah’s relationships with Stefan, Matt, and more. On how she feels about her character this season:
“I feel really lucky as an actor because I get to go a lot of places with Rebekah. I get to explore her vulnerable side, I get to explore the mean girl/catty side of her and there’s that inner conflict about whether she wants to be human or a vampire. I just love it all and am so grateful to the writers for giving me so much.”
And her internal struggle:
“That provides a huge amount of inner turmoil for her because she loves parts of being a vampire — the power, being able to control situations — but she also wants to be a real girl and to have those experiences of going to a dance and being loved by a boy.”

TV Guide talked to Kat Graham about tonight’s episode A View to a Kill (EP412) and Bonnie’s run-in with Kol. Sounds like it will be pretty dramatic:
“This is the first scene that Bonnie and Kol have had together and it’s honestly one of the most intense scenes I’ve had with one other person since I don’t know when.”
Watch the Vampire Diaries Bite:
Kat Graham has done several interviews in advance of tonight’s new episode, Catch Me If You Can (EP411). First, at ETonline, Kat talks a bit about the introduction of Bonnie’s father but then gets into her character’s overall arc:
So much crazy Bonnie stuff is coming up. I’m excited that, if Bonnie makes any turn as to who she is and what she’s about, I’m excited to know that a lot of fans will come with her. I’m excited for them to grow with Bonnie and excited for them to see what Bonnie can do. For so long, this was a character who was never at her full power. She was always losing it and then getting some of it back … she’s struggled with finding herself as a witch and finding herself in her power.
And at Hollywood Life, Kat discusses Bonnie and Jeremy:
I think their relationship is still healing, and Bonnie’s starting to trust him again. She’s going to need someone more than ever, a partner in crime. I can also say her love was never lost for him. She never really got over it.
