Thanks to Give Me My Remote, we have another goodie from San Diego Comic-Con to get us through this last long stretch of summer hiatus. Julie Plec spoke with reporters about The Originals, flashbacks, Shakespeare, potential crossovers, and more:
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:
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!
Between San Diego Comic-Con, TCA, and general summer distractions, some things inevitably fall through the cracks, so let’s catch up on some news and interviews we’ve missed in the past week or two. And never fear: Things will be gearing back up soon, as we’re only about seven weeks away from the joint premiere night for The Vampire Diaries and The Originals on the CW on October 3rd at 8/7c and 9/8c, respectively. (The Originals will then move to its normal Tuesday timeslot.)
