Chicago’s Mash.com caught up with Zach Roerig and Sara Canning and they talk about everything from the moment they found out they’d won their respective roles of Matt Donovan and Jenna Sommers on Vampire Diaries to the “vampire trend” and their prom nights.
Hollyscoop has posted their Young Hollywood Awards red carpet interview with Nina Dobrev. Nina talks season finale, True Blood, and what fans can expect in season 2. Thanks to @PerditaElizbeth for the heads up!
The BBC’s the 5:19 Show will be interviewing Nina, Paul and Ian tomorrow, and they need your help with a fun little game they want to play with them. The list of questions are in a post over in our forums (you’ll need to sign up to post – it doesn’t take long), or you can leave your answers in the comments here, and we’ll let the 5:19 team know where to look.
The show itself will be aired at a later date, but the 5:19 team will be posting it on YouTube when it does go live so that international fans can see it too. We’ll get that up here for you all as soon as it’s available, so keep your eyes peeled.
Earlier this morning (very early for fans in the US), UK fans of the Vampire Diaries were able to catch Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder talking about the show on ‘This Morning’. For those who missed it, or aren’t in the UK, we’ve got video of the interview below.
If you missed the game of musical tweets to try and get the correct information about this out on Twitter… lucky you. ;) As most of you are probably aware, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder are all over in the UK right now to do a bit of Vampire Diaries promotion. As well as attending a signing event at the Oxford Street HMV on Thursday, they’re also going to be appearing on the This Morning show on ITV1, tomorrow at some time after 10:30am. So set those Sky+ and Virgin Media boxes to record, tune in, and we’ll be getting a video of it up as soon as we can get our paws on one.
While they’re over in Europe, the trio will also be attending the Television Festival in Monte Carlo between June 6-10. CineTVBuzz will be at the event, and want you guys to submit questions you’d like them to ask Nina, Paul and Ian. If you have a question, then please leave it in the comments, and we’ll pass it on.
Have you recovered yet from The VRO’s epic month of Vampire Diaries awesome? Hungry for more? Well, mark your calendars: Katerina Graham will make her first VRO appearance on Sunday, June 13th at 9 p.m. ET. She’ll talk about the show, playing Bonnie Bennett, and what she’s working on during the filming hiatus.
And don’t forget that Mrs. Lockwood herself, Susan Walters, will be the The VRO’s special guest tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
Speaking of the busy Ms. Graham, she’s holding a special fan competition: Design a Kat Graham fan t-shirt and YOUR tee could be the official Kat Graham fan shirt. All proceeds will benefit charity. Check out what Kat herself has to say and what you need to do and RSVP on Facebook.
The anticipation has been building all month and the moment has finally arrived: Tune in to The VRO at 9pm ET tonight as Vampire Diaries executive producer/writer Julie Plec fields your questions. As she tweeted earlier, “I’m happy to defend it, explain it, or revel in it w u, depending on topic. Or we can just talk about Paul’s abs.” Word on the street is that tonight’s show is going to be extra-special so, whatever you have to do, make sure you’re there. We have a feeling it’s going to be lots of fun.
If you missed this week’s interviews, you can listen to them in full over at Blog Talk Radio: Paul M. Sommers and Marguerite MacIntyre. And tune in for Malese Jow on Friday night and Susan Walters on June 1st.
And tonight at 8/7c, the Vampire Diaries Season One encore officially begins on the CW. The Moonlight pairing kicks off next week, June 3rd.
And, if you follow Kev and Julie on Twitter, you know the writers returned to work this week to begin Season Two. Yes, as you read this, they’re plotting how to drive you all insane. Exciting, isn’t it?
Lots going on behind the scenes here at V-D.net (good stuff!) so bear with us as we work back into a groove. It’s becoming a very interesting summer indeed.
We’re heading into the home stretch of The VRO’s Vampire Diaries Month. This week there will be back-to-back interviews every night through Friday. The final round kicks off at 9pm ET TONIGHT with Paul M. Sommers, Director of Photography for The Vampire Diaries.

E’s Kristin Dos Santos caught up with Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev, and Ian Somerhalder at the CW upfront in New York City this past Thursday. Nina chats about filming the closing scenes of the season finale and Ian and Paul put in their two cents about being “diabolical.”
FearNet has posted a conversation with Nina Dobrev and she touches on season one’s final episodes, her working relationship with Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, playing Elena and Katherine, what distinguishes The Vampire Diaries within the genre, Elena’s journey as a character (so far), and her hopes for the second season.
Is there any particular direction in which you’d like to see Elena go in the second season?
Yeah, I definitely want to see how her relationship between the two boys progresses; and if at some point enough will be enough, and if she will decide that being around these two individuals is really worth all the pain and heartache and all the difficulties that they really put on her life. She had problems before they showed up. But it’s definitely complicated things a lot, their presence. So I’d like to see whether or not she will call it quits or keep going and fighting for what she loves.
