Spartacus: War of the Damned actress Cynthia Addai-Robinson will play Aja, a powerful witch, with a connection to Bonnie’s mother, who comes to Mystic Falls to help Bonnie control her magic.
And the 38th annual Saturn Awards have announced this year’s nominees and The Vampire Diaries is up for Best Youth-Oriented Series on Television.
Guest star Charlie Bewley will appear as Vaughn in tomorrow’s new episode, Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414), so Alloy Entertainment interviewed him about his experience on the show and his other projects.
Alloy Entertainment: What was it like filming scenes with Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan, and the cast? Were there any entertaining behind-the-scenes moments on set?
Charlie Bewley: Ian is the glue that binds us all. He runs the show. It’s quite the spectacle. I love the guy — he has lots of great energy and is a real people person. TV is a new medium for me… these guys have been going at it for years. I feel privileged to have come in and injected my own brand of energy to Mystic Falls.
Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas will be appearing on tomorrow night’s new episode of The Vampire Diaries, My Brother’s Keeper (EP407), and Nina Dobrev interviewed her for Entertainment Tonight about her experience visiting the show. Gabby also helps Nina with some gymnastic, and there are some nice words from Nina, Ian Somerhalder, and Candice Accola about Gabby’s accomplishments and working with her on set. (And for international viewers, try this YouTube version.)
Check out a few fun behind-the-scenes photos of Gabrielle Douglas on the Vampire Diaries set, courtesy of the CW. Check them all out in the Gallery. Gabby makes her TVD debut on tomorrow night’s all-new episode, My Brother’s Keeper (EP407)!
Here’s a cool (and very sweet) behind the scenes video featuring Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas and the Vampire Diaries cast chatting about Douglas’s upcoming guest appearance in tomorrow night’s episode, My Brother’s Keeper (EP407). We’re not sure who was more excited to meet who.
TV Guide has learned that actors Charlie Bewley and Camille Guaty will appear in the second half of season four of The Vampire Diaries. Guaty’s character, Caitlin, will be a woman from Professor Shane‘s past, while Bewley will play a “tough and rugged” character named Vaughn. They speculate that he might be a hunter. Thoughts?
TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross returns with a new Vampire Diaries Bite this week and this time she talks The Killer (EP405), tonight’s all-new episode, with guest star Todd Williams, who plays (the very determined and bad ass) Connor.
Entertainment Weekly also caught up with Todd Williams to talk about tonight’s episode:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Connor is a character who, at the moment, is very easy to dislike. Is there something in his backstory that would surprise us?
TODD WILLIAMS: That’s what this episode is about, basically shedding some light as to why Connor’s doing what he’s doing. It’s not as black and white as, Oh, vampires. I want to kill ‘em. That’s it. There’s definitely a story there, and this episode makes him a little more three-dimensional, just in terms of his humanity.
And yesterday, TV journalists screened The Killer with Julie Plec, Todd Williams, and Michael Narducci. Check out various teases (beware spoilers!) below:

The CW has released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries: My Brother’s Keeper (EP407), airing Thursday, November 29th at 8/7c. Highlight for spoilers:
THE MISS MYSTIC FALLS PAGEANT — Caroline (Candice Accola) does her best to be there for Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) in a tough time. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tries to convince Stefan to help him uncover Prof. Shane’s (guest star David Alpay) motives, but Stefan is intent on carrying out a different plan with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). At the annual Miss Mystic Falls Pageant, Elena and Caroline give April (guest star Grace Phipps) advice on which dress to wear, while Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) work together on a secret project, and Damon confronts Prof. Shane with his suspicions. Alarmed by the vivid nightmares he’s having, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) turns to Matt (Zach Roerig) for help, but the situation escalates sooner than anyone expected. Olympic Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas also makes an appearance.
The episode was written by Caroline Dries and Elisabeth R. Finch and directed by Jeffrey Hunt.
Celebuzz catches up with Kat Graham to talk Bonnie, the Tyler and Klaus situation, witchcraft, and all things Season 4 premiere. Check out the video below!
HuffPostTV talks with Torrey DeVitto about Meredith’s character “trajectory,” action scenes, and more.
When we see Meredith in Season 4, are the Salvatore brothers really angry with her?
You know, I don’t think they’re too happy or pleased, but, here’s what everybody is missing: Had Meredith not done what she did, there would possibly be no more “Vampire Diaries” because Elena would be dead. So can we just give Meredith a little more credit here? [Laughs.] Come on you sexy little vampires — you’d have no girl to fight over so just get over it. [Laughs.]
And NiceGirlsTV has more teases from the Comic-Con 2012 press room, courtesy of Nina Dobrev.
Elena may not be the first member of the Mystic Falls gang to grow fangs, but that doesn’t mean that her friends are going to necessarily be comfortable with her new life.
“Caroline kind of was accepted by the group as a vampire and I think for Elena, everyone is going to just be sad. They’ve just spent all this time doing everything in their power to protect her, and now she’s a vampire – so I guess she can protect herself.”
