More Interviews: Nina Dobrev, Julie Plec + New Guest Star Grace PhippsEntertainment Weekly sat down with Nina Dobrev during a recent TVD set visit to talk about the Season 3 finale, Elena’s transition, and Salvatores:

“She’s confused and changing and having different cravings and having different urges,” says Dobrev. “I feel like she’s kind of gone back to being stuck in the middle between the two boys.”


Give Me My Remote has more with Julie Plec, who discusses the show’s success, Twitter reactions to the Season 3 finale, and why Season 4 will not be slowing things down:

JP: And so I went into season 3 and I told all the actors, “This is the year we really need to prove to everybody that we’re good at what we do and this show is never going to falter. And the quality of storytelling, quality of production, quality of performance is our priority, and we’re going to do it, we’re going to work our asses off so nobody thinks this was just a fluke.” And we did so well in season 3 that I think in the back of our heads, we thought we could step back a little in season 4 and sleep a little. And then we get to season 4 and we realized, no, it’s been going so well, we haven’t faltered yet, let’s just drive this train all the way to the end of the series and never let anyone say, “You really blew it.” So that’s the goal.


And Zap2It has a nice introduction to upcoming guest star Grace Phipps, whose character, April, takes her bow on The Vampire Diaries in tonight’s episode. Spoiler alert: Phipps is really charming.

Phipps brings a great new energy to the cast, while April shifts the dynamic of the show a bit. Now, Elena isn’t concerned about saving herself all the time — she’s got a new, innocent person in town who means a lot to her, and keeping April safe begins to take priority. As we’ll see in tonight’s episode, “Memorial,” keeping April safe is much easier said than done thanks to a new hunter in town.

Julie Plec: The Insider caught up with Julie Plec for an excellent and lengthy discussion about tonight’s new episode, Memorial, and the events and fallout of last week’s Season 4 premiere, Growing Pains. In addition to touching on the big mystery set up in last week’s final moments and Elena’s journey as a newbie vampire, Plec also explains why tonight’s Memorial acts as a Season 3 finale: Earlier you mentioned that you were slow playing these first few episodes. Does that allow these characters, whose lives whoosh by, to take stock of everything that’s happened?
Julie: For sure. I look at episode two in my own special way as the finale of last season’s journey. We never got a chance to mourn, we never got a chance to properly grieve Alaric. In a way, our characters are never given the opportunity to sit and think about the terrible things that happen to them. This is a way of saying to the audience, we are allowing ourselves this moment to grieve. We are putting this away and moving forward. In many ways, episode three is truly the launch of season three [four? – V.] in that we’re really beginning a new chapter. Episode one and two are almost like a nice bow wrapped on end of season three.

This week’s TV Guide Vampire Diaries Bite is good news for fans of Damon’s reckless side, looks like we’ll be seeing some more of it soon, and that it will be a big draw for Elena’s own wild side. Hear what Julie Plec has to say about it in the clip below.


Speaking of reckless, Zach Roerig answers questions from Celebuzz about Matt Donovan’s guilt issues and what might be in store for him this season.

Celebuzz: Matt is obviously feeling a lot of guilt about Elena’s sacrifice for him. How is that going to continue to impact his role this season?

Zach Roerig: Feeling that guilt is going to make him is question why he is alive. I just think both Salvatore brothers are going to encourage Matt in different ways to kind of put up or shut up. Matt’s involvement is stepped up in everything.


Zach Roerig isn’t the only one who has to step up this season, Nina Dobrev has a whole new challenge as she takes on Elena’s new reality. The TV Chick spoke with the actress about all the changes Elena is going through this season.

What are you looking forward to this season for your character?

To go on the journey with her and sort of see how she deals with things, and it’s sad though. She never wanted this at all and now she has no choice. Not just for today, but forever. And she’s stuck with this lifestyle, but who knows. Everything happens for a reason, and maybe one day she’ll be really thankful and really happy that she gets to live through different eras and different times. Maybe she will leave all these boys behind and try to find a cure for cancer or make some good of it.

Candice Accola & Michael TrevinoWe’re all still reeling from last night’s premiere, Growing Pains (EP401), but that doesn’t mean the interviews, teasers, and general flood of coverage has stopped. So how about some morning reading to answer some questions – and, undoubtedly, create plenty of new questions? Fair warning: You should assume that these are all spoilery through last night’s episode, and there are some hints about the rest of the season as well. Enjoy, and hit the comments with your theories about what’s going on!

Joseph Morgan as KlausAs if tonight’s season premiere wasn’t enough, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first glimpse of Klaus and Elijah in 12th century garb (and hair!). In the accompanying video, costume designer Leigh Leverett talks about her style choices, and which character’s look was deliberately altered a bit from the period norm.

“I look at research from the period and find the best styles… that I think fit our show,” Leverett says about the three costumes she created for the episode. “We actually built all of this in our tailor shop.”


We’ve also got a few more interviews and goodies to help tide you over until tonight:

Happy premiere day! If you woke up in desperate need of some Vampire Diaries content to get you through your morning, you’re in luck: Julie Plec talked to TV Guide about Elena’s transition and how it affects her and the triangle. Without getting into too many of the specifics (click through if you want to see!), we can give you this interesting bit:

“Elena is uncompromising about is the length she’ll go to protect the people she cares about and as a vampire that takes on a whole new meaning. So I do think there is some element of concern on the part of her closest friends to make sure she’s not losing her way or losing sight of herself in all this – especially how it relates to the Salvatore brothers.”

And in the first Vampire Diaries Bite video of the season, Robyn Ross gives some tantalizing teases about the premiere. (Warning: Slightly spoilery! Watch at your own risk!)

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.

And here we go: The CW has released the official episode synopsis for the Vampire Diaries: Memorial (EP402). The episode airs on Thursday, October 18th! NOTE: It seems like the CW sent out the episode 2 description with the Season 4 premiere date attached. Hopefully we’ll have some clarification soon!

Highlight the text below for spoilers:

A NEW DANGER COMES TO TOWN — [spoiler]Elena (Nina Dobrev) tries to cope with the extreme highs and lows that are part of becoming a vampire, and Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) almost come to blows while arguing about what is best for her. Damon decides to help Elena in his own way and asks her not to tell Stefan. A stranger, Connor Jordan (guest star Todd Williams, “Chicago Code”), arrives in town and begins questioning Sheriff Forbes and Mayor Lockwood. Connor’s actions quickly convince Stefan that they are dealing with a dangerous vampire hunter. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) are surprised to see a girl they used to know, April, (guest star Grace Phipps, “The Nine Lives of Chloe King”), has returned to town and is enrolling at Mystic Falls High. At a town gathering, Elena comes close to losing control until Caroline steps in to help her. Finally, Damon confides his feelings to an unexpected friend.
