At a San Diego Comic-Con roundtable with reporters, Charles Michael Davis teased a bit about the backstory of his character Marcel, as well as his relationships with other characters on the show and more. And thanks to Give Me My Remote, we can see it too:
The CW has uploaded a brief video with Michael Trevino. While the actor doesn’t reveal much about season 5, he does talk about the moments he enjoyed most in season 4.
At Comic-Con, Phoebe Tonkin spoke with reporters about her character Hayley moving from The Vampire Diaries to The Originals as well as what Hayley’s relationship (or lack thereof) with Klaus will be like going forward. Here’s a taste via Give Me My Remote:
“I think Klaus resents Hayley a little bit,” Tonkin told reporters at Comic-Con. “They didn’t plan on this going any further than a one night stand, and now they’re facing the consequence of that.”
The Hollywood Reporter has a new video interview with Kat Graham in which she discusses Bonnie’s future in season five, now that Jeremy is the only one who can see her:
“She loves her friends and family and she can’t connect to them, and it creates an intimacy relying on one person as your connection to the one thing that matters the most to you,” Graham says. “It’s a really beautiful thing to see. She only has him (Jeremy) at this point.”
Then head over to The TV Addict to watch a video interview from Comic-Con with EP Caroline Dries about the upcoming fifth season!
The CW has posted two more in its series of video interviews with its stars, leading up to the fall season. Our first today is with Zach Roerig, otherwise known as Matt on The Vampire Diaries, which will have its season five premiere on Thursday, October 3 at 8/7c:
And we also have Daniella Pineda, a.k.a. Sophie of The Originals, which premieres on Thursday, October 3 at 9/8c before moving to its regular Tuesday time slot. (The network hasn’t put this video on YouTube yet, so apologies if you can’t see it in your country!)
It’s that time of year: The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are heading to Comic-Con International 2013 in San Diego and TV Guide Magazine is featuring both shows on their now-annual run of special Comic-Con issues, available in stores and at the con itself.

Warner Bros. has just announced its plans for Comic-Con International, and both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have panels – and there’s a special Originals screening, too! Via Give Me My Remote:
WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 • BALLROOM 20
For the sixth straight year, WBTVG gets Comic-Con off to a dramatic start by hosting a special sneak peek, world-premiere screening event on Preview Night, debuting some of the most hotly anticipated new series of the year. For 2013, WBTV will screen the complete pilot episodes of Almost Human, The Tomorrow People and The 100 for the first time ever in public. Additionally, WBTV will unveil a special presentation of The Originals on the big screen, featuring never-before-seen footage that did not air as part of “The Originals” episode of The Vampire Diaries episode in April.
SATURDAY, JULY 20
The Originals (Tuesdays 8/7c The CW): Series stars Joseph Morgan, Claire Holt, Phoebe Tonkin and Charles Michael Davis join executive producer Julie Plec.
The Vampire Diaries (Thursdays 8/7c The CW): Comic-Con veterans Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham and Candice Accola join executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries.
They have not announced times for the panels yet, but we’ll let you know when they do. Please note that the exact panel lineups are subject to change, but it’s great to see that both shows are getting a share of the spotlight! Comic-Con International will be held at the San Diego Convention Center from July 18-21; read all about it at the official site.
Entertainment Tonight Online interviewed Leah Pipes about her role in Lifetime’s Jodi Arias movie, but they also took some time to discuss her upcoming role on The Originals.
ETonline: As the lone human in this world, how long do you think she could or should stay in the dark?
Pipes: Yeah, it’s like Cammy and the tourists wearing fannypacks … and they’re all definitely going to die, so it’ll just be me [laughs]. As of now, she’s working at a bar, owned by Sophie, who is a witch. So I can see them having a friendship. She also seems to be creating a friendship with Klaus and it sounds like Marcel is trying to groom her to be his queen; I don’t know if someone will spill the beans or she will put two and two together, but she has no human friends, it can’t take that long!
It’s that time of year again: The Teen Choice Awards have announced their first wave of nominations. The Vampire Diaries as a whole is up for Choice TV Show: Fantascy/Sci-Fi. Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are both up for Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Nina Dobrev and Kat Graham are both nominated for Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Congratulations, everybody!
