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.
CLICK FOR MORE INTERVIEWS WITH NINA DOBREV, PAUL WESLEY, KAT GRAHAM, MICHAEL TREVINO, STEVEN R. MCQUEEN, CANDICE ACCOLA, ZACH ROERIG, MATT DAVIS, SARA CANNING, NATHANIEL BUZOLIC, OLGA FONDA, MALESE JOW, MARGUERITE MACINTYRE & JULIE PLEC.
TV Guide caught up with Nina Dobrev and guest star Shaun Sipos to talk about Elena’s connection with Sipos’s character Aaron, a fellow Whitmore student.
“Elena’s hope was to go to college and start this new life but she soon learned that Mystic Falls isn’t the only place overrun by vampires,” Dobrev tells TVGuide.com. “When she meets Aaron … they bond over a similar life and past and the grief and death they both had.”
And E!Online talks to guest star Olga Fonda about Nadia’s agenda in Mystic Falls.
And Fonda is more than OK with viewers sharing their opinions with her on Twitter, saying the Vampire Diaries’ fans have been amazing to her. “Since I’ve been on the show, I’ve had a lot of new fans coming on board, and they are just so wonderful. I was a little nervous, again, I’m here and the show has been together for four years, they have the people you love, and if you mess with them, they might not like you necessarily as much,” she says. “I do get a little tweet here and there that says ‘Don’t mess with Matt. You better not mess with him!’ But they’ve been so wonderful and they’ve been so welcoming and then they’ve been so loving.”
So it turns out new guest star Janina Gavankar had a lot to do (and say) on last night’s cucko-bananas episode of The Vampire Diaries. Since pretty much everything from last night is a spoiler, make sure you’ve watched Original Sin (EP503) before reading this TV Guide interview.
How did you ultimately prepare for the role?
Gavankar: I came thinking I knew some sh– because this is my third vampire show. Meanwhile, this show is so different from True Blood. This is a show about doppelgangers. I love swimming in backstory soup, so the first thing I did was sit down with the writer of the episode, Rebecca Sonnenshine, and I waded through all of it with her and figured out the whole thing. I had more hair tests and makeup tests than any other show.
Entertainment Weekly has a fun photo gallery highlighting six of the new characters we’ll be seeing in Vampire Diaries Season 5 – well, not all of them are entirely new, because we’ll be seeing a lot more of this guy:
The face is familiar, but it’s a totally new role for Wesley, who’s now also playing the 2,000 year old immortal who quickly returns to Mystic Falls. ”The fun of Silas is much like season 1 Damon [Ian Somerhalder] in that he’s up to something and no one can quite figure out what it is,” exec producer Julie Plec says. ”Specifically for Damon, it’s driving him crazy because it’s like the tables have turned: If you remember in season 1, Stefan was always saying to Damon, ‘What are you up to?’ and Damon’s like, ‘That’s for me to know and you to….’ Silas plays the same little tricks on Damon, so it’s up to Damon to get to the bottom of what Silas wants, what he’s doing to get it, how it’s gonna impact all of them, and ultimately how they can put a stop to it.”
The post also features tidbits about Olga Fonda as Nadia, Kendrick Sampson as Jesse, Rick Cosnett as Dr. Wes Maxfield, Janina Gavankar as Tessa, and Shaun Sipos as Aaron.
E!Online has our first look at the October 3rd premiere of The Originals. Looks like we can expect flashbacks and the return of a gone-too-soon guest star.
With flashbacks playing such a major role on The Vampire Diaries, fans can expect to see even more on The Originals given the fact that Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah have clocked some thousand years. “I’ve read the first two scripts and I am just so excited. They both feature elements of flashback,” Morgan recently told us. “They’re both really on a larger scale. This is a war we’re building toward.”
There may not be a new Vampire Diaries episode tonight, but that doesn’t mean the CW can’t tease the show’s return. ET Online has our first look at a special poster for The Originals (EP420) backdoor pilot, set to air Thursday, April 25th.
In New Orleans, the air is thick with blood…
That’s The CW’s tease for The Originals, the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries that also serves as a backdoor pilot for a spinoff revolving around Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah!
The poster features Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah, and new character Marcel, played by Charles Michael Davis.
We know, we know: Hiatuses suck, but one Thursday down and only one more to go until The Vampire Diaries returns with all-new episodes on Thursday, March 14th! In the meantime, feast your eyes on some new episode stills for Bring It On (EP416) and Because the Night (EP417) and click the images to view the episode’s respective gallery on KSiteTV.
TV Guide has new, exclusive guest star news: Cynthia Addai-Robinson will appear on the March 21st episode of The Vampire Diaries as Bonnie Bennett’s new mentor in magic.
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.
