In advance of tonight’s mid-season finale, Reigning Pain in New Orleans (EP109), Zap2it spoke with Danielle Campbell about Davina’s power and priorities, her relationship with Tim, the shocking events of the episode, and more. About her character:
“She’s pretty damn powerful,” Campbell points out. “She knows what’s going on and she’s starting to develop her own sense of what she thinks and she’s not just taking one side or another. She’s starting to have a voice of her own and she’s starting to figure out what she wants. She’s starting to think for herself.”

Michael Trevino makes his The Originals debut in tomorrow night’s all-new episode, Bloodletting (EP107), and he’s dropping teases about Tyler’s New Orleans agenda and who may or may not be in his vengeance-hungry hybrid crosshairs.
Also fueling Tyler’s desire for revenge? Not only has Klaus killed his mother, but also his crush on Caroline led to the eventual “Forwood” breakup. “Klaus has always wanted to be with Caroline and he’s made that very clear. And his infatuation with her still exists,” Trevino says. “It’s kind of tough. We can only do that love triangle between Klaus and Caroline and Tyler for so long. So I’m glad that with what’s happening now, we’ve kind of finally put an end to that. Whether that’s good or bad for Tyler remains to be seen. But we’re finally going to address that and leave it and hopefully never touch on it again.”
How is the relationship between Hayley and Tyler when they reunite?
Trevino: It’s not good. She backstabbed him, and so Tyler is really coming to New Orleans as a villain.
Ultimate revenge on Klaus could be killing Hayley and his baby. Do you think he has it in him to be that evil?
Trevino: I do. Tyler has always been surrounded by death, and Klaus killed his mother, and Hayley had something to do with that. So is it in him? Absolutely.
And be sure to check out Michael’s set video interview via TV Fanatic:
What can we expect from Tyler’s “second act of revenge” against his hybrid nemesis, as Trevino described to TV Fanatic yesterday on The Vampire Diaries set?
Might this actually be a suicide mission?!?
Phoebe Tonkin, Daniel Gillies, and Joseph Morgan discuss the hazards of falling for the mother of your brother’s unborn child with E!Online. As all things Original go, it’s indeed complicated:
“There’s the idea that Elijah is usurping his role as father. Having this family is what Elijah wants most; family above all. He’s taking on that role and that is addressed in the show,” [Joseph Morgan] explains. “We’re not beating around that bush. We’ll absolutely make reference to the fact that you might think that he’s the father with the way that he’s acting. That’s a lot of fun. I think that was a really fair decision from the writers to create that romantic tension between those two characters because that really messes with Klaus.”
The TV Addict has a slew of brief, red carpet chats with Vampire Diaries cast, writers, and guest stars (and bonus Kevin Williamson appearance!) at Saturday night’s TVD100 Celebration event in Atlanta.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Leah Pipes about her character Cami’s tragic family history as well as her relationships with Klaus and Marcel, and her feelings about her character in general:
“Every script I get I am more and more happy. I really love where the writers are taking Cami, and I’m enjoying telling that story. Obviously she’s the most relatable for a lot of young girls watching the show. Cami is just a normal human girl, and the way she handles herself in the precarious situation of being mind-controlled is, I think, commendable.”
She also gives a little tease about tonight’s episode!
It’s been widely rumored, and now the news is confirmed by Michael Trevino himself: According to Entertainment Weekly, his character Tyler Lockwood will be appearing on The Originals.
”A lot of fans are upset that Tyler has made the decision to leave as soon as he shows up. I’m getting a little bit of flack for it on the Twitterverse here,” Trevino says. “I just want to say everything will be explained, and I think Tyler will make it good once he shows up to The Originals…. I think everybody will be happy with Tyler’s reasoning when they see what he’s been up to and what he has planned.”
No word yet on exactly when he’ll be showing up or for how many episodes.

ETOnline spoke with Rick Cosnett about his Vampire Diaries character, Professor Wes Maxfield. Will he continue the tradition of, shall we say, less than transparent educators on the show?
ETonline: TVD has featured a few shady teachers, particularly towards the end of last season. The audience is now kind of conditioned to think all teachers on this show are evil. Do you get to have some fun playing with the audiences expectations of Dr. Maxfield?
Cosnett: Absolutely. It’s fun because he’s not necessarily bad; it’s the wonderful dichotomy that we all have. I think he’s a nice human being. Or is he? [laughs] Well, he has human qualities either way, and feelings and a life and people that he loves. It’s interesting to show how someone gets to a place where he does things that people might not look at as “good.”
