And The TV Chick has posted another of her Comic Con videos, to go with the Julie one posted yesterday! See what Candice has to say about birthday parties, love triangles, and more.
The TV Chick has posted a great video interview with Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec. It’s a little old – from Comic-Con – but it had some things we hadn’t heard before, so we thought we’d go ahead and share it with you. Julie talks about how hard it was to kill off Jenna, how much she dislikes it when spoilers get out (and why), and what Damon would rather eat glass than do.
Check out this cool little teaser video of photo shoot footage from the TV Guide Magazine Comic Con 2011 Special Issue. There are a lot of shows in here, so watch carefully for the The Vampire Diaries shots!

Good things come to those who (impatiently) wait! TV Guide has the Vampire Diaries sizzle reel that was show at Comic Con this past weekend – and yes, it includes our very first five-second glimpse at Season 3 (or #TVDS3, if you will). Watch the entire video; new footage at the very end. Check it out below!
And Entertainment Weekly‘s Spoiler Room has two interesting tidbits: One from Nina Dobrev on an Alaric and Elena “adventure,” and about those Original flashbacks…
…when prompted for his outlook for the season, Joseph Morgan says he’s most excited to meet Klaus’ family. “We get a chance to go back and see the point where they became vampires and where the curse was placed on Klaus to suppress his hybrid nature, his hybrid side,” he told a roundtable. “It’ll be interesting when we introduce other originals who are possibly equally as powerful or have some sort of emotional hold over Klaus … to see what that brings out of him.”
Look, more video! ThinkHero has a couple of wonderful interviews with Candice Accola and Joseph Morgan about their characters and Season 3. Kristen Nedopak (@Nedopak) even got Joseph to do evil laughs just for us! It doesn’t get much better than that. Thank you, Kristen!
