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.”
Busy, busy news day around here. The Vampire Diaries is definitely back. KSiteTV has our first look at a few stills from The Five (EP404), airing November 1st. (Read the official synopsis here.) Click the still below to see three more images at KSiteTV! We also have our first look at guest star David Alpay as Professor Shane.
The CW has released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries: The Five (EP404), airing Thursday, November 1st on the CW. Highlight for spoilers:
A FRAT PARTY AND A FLASHBACK TO 12TH CENTURY ITALY — Damon (Ian Somerhalder) goes with Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) to visit Whitmore College, where Professor Shane (guest star David Alpay, “The Borgias”) is taking over the Occult Studies classes formerly taught by Bonnie’s grandmother. At a fraternity costume party, Damon takes advantage of the wild scene to give Elena a lesson in choosing a victim. Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) attempt to buy Matt’s (Zach Roerig) forgiveness falls flat, but she is intrigued by unexpected news from Klaus (Joseph Morgan). When Stefan (Paul Wesley) questions Klaus about Connor’s (guest star Todd Williams) motives, Klaus reveals a long-ago encounter with a powerful group of vampire hunters, but it’s Rebekah who delivers the information that stuns Stefan.
The episode was written by Brett Matthews and Rebecca Sonnenshine and directed by Joshua Butler.
It’s going to be a busy week, so here’s the next batch of interviews for your enjoyment. First up, Julie Plec previews Season 4′s return over at The Hollywood Reporter.
THR: Now that Elena’s exploring her new state of being as a vampire, will this force her to open her mind up?
Plec: Elena becoming a vampire, in a way, is an awakening of a person who is about to go through a lot of changes – some for the better and some for the worse, some for the darker and some for the lighter. In all that, she is going to evolve as a person and her relationships are going to evolve accordingly. I can’t say much beyond that other than that it’s a journey for her of an adolescent growing up to a really tragic adulthood. We change a lot in those years and we change what we want out of life; it’s a constant evolution.
TV Guide sits down with Nina Dobrev to talk vampire!Elena, Stefan and Damon, and Season 4 surprises.
Over at Entertainment Weekly, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder talk about vampire sex. And that’s all we need to say, right?
Zach Roerig chats with MTV’s Hollywood Crush about the State of the Donovan in Season 4 and how last season’s events will affect Matt’s relationship with Elena. (Also, book fans, there’s a nice spoilery gimme in that article that might interest you.)
“Damon definitely blames Matt and doesn’t think that Matt deserves to live,” Zach explained. “Of course Damon, being the rage-filled-fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of guy, comes at Matt. But thankfully Elena is there to defend him.
“Both Salvatore brothers make it clear to Matt that he needs to earn his survival,” he added.
And, finally, the Associated Press sat down with Daniel Gillies to talk Elijah, Elena, and Season 4.
