Vampire Diaries at Comic ConTHIS POST IS A STICKY, KEEP SCROLLING FOR MORE NEWS. KEEP REFRESHING THIS POST FOR NEW LINKS BEING ADDED.

Stuck at home waiting to find out just what took place at Comic Con today? You’re not alone. But Vee and Crissy Calhoun have been tweeting from the panel and signing booth and taking pictures and video, while the rest of us have been ferreting out goodies from other sources to collect together. Don’t forget to keep checking back, because we’ll be adding more stuff as we find it!

First up, a recap of what took place at the panel. Highlight or mouseover the spoiler blocks to see the potentially spoilery stuff.

  • The audience sang Happy Birthday to Paul Wesley.
  • There was a brief clip from season 3 featuring Damon and Elena. Damon surprises Elena while he’s stark naked. Fans screamed.
  • Everyone seems unanimous on seeing Kayla Ewell and Sara Canning die on the show. Paul also mentions Rose. Julie reveals she still gets hate mail for killing off Mason Lockwood.
  • Paul is looking forward to exploring the darker side with Ripper Stefan.
  • Elijah will be back, at the very least in flashbacks.
  • Jeremy is being haunted by ghosts
  • Candice tells the audience she thinks it’s cool to do stunts and be a strong young woman. When asked what’s in store for Caroline and Tyler, Ian interjects with, “Puppies!”
  • Julie jokes that Katherine skipped town to Hawaii after the season finale.
  • On the subject of Damon and Elena dating: Julie points out that Katherine said it was okay to love both brothers, and that was for a reason. Kevin says that Elena will not just run into Damon’s arms now that Stefan is off with Klaus.
  • Nina reveals that Justin Bieber wanted to be on the show. Kevin states that he thinks stunt casting is unnecessary and that they’ll cast based on what’s good for the story.
  • At the end of the panel, everyone whipped out Team t-shirts. Paul had Team Damon, Ian had Team Stefan, Nina had Team Katherine, Candice had Team Tyler, and Joseph had Team Klaus. Julie and Kevin had a t-shirt listing all the main characters. Ian Somerhalder then says, “All of these teams together make up this kick-ass family that we call Vampire Diaries.”

IMG DESCComic Con has begun! Yesterday was the TV Guide Fan Favorites panel, and Vee and Chrissy Calhoun were on the scene to bring us the good stuff – including that Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette from True Blood) is a big Vampire Diaries fan!

There were a lot of people on hand for the panel, and it covered a lot of different shows, but there were a few tidbits on The Vampire Diaries from Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson. Buddy TV has a nice collection of highlights from the panel.

When did they realize their show was a cult/fan favorite?
Kevin Williamson: “It all started with Twitter.”
Julie Plec: “When Ian Somerhalder beat Robert Pattinson in a Favorite Vampire contest.”

Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or somehow just fell through the cracks. Please insert theme song by Explosions in the Sky here and enjoy.

Comic Con 2011: Hollywood Reporter Q&A with Kevin WilliamsonThe Hollywood Reporter has a Comic Con-centric interview with Kevin Williamson, who will be representing two CW shows at this year’s convention: The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. Kev talks about his first Comic Con experience, why he enjoys the event so much, why the interaction between a property and its fans is important, and drops a few Vampire Diaries tidbits. (For the record, we think he meant “Klaus” instead of “Elijah” at one point, given the context.)

THR: What have you learned from Diaries?
Williamson: As a storyteller, I always felt that this type of storytelling — I call it hybrid – is part high school, part drama, part family, part vampire, part horror. I felt like all these types of shows when you see them on TV go too slow. I felt like it needed to have an energy to it. After watching eight years of 24, you can see what an adrenaline show can be like. I wanted to bring that adrenaline to a melodramatic horror soap opera. I didn’t want it to be slow and gothic and boring. I wanted it to be alive, and pulsating every step of the way, whether it’s through action, great emotion or epic love. I wanted to tell a big, huge epic story and I feel like the fans who watch it religiously understand that. And I hope more people will watch it. It’s just that little show on the CW still.

EW's Season 3 scoop: Tyler & Caroline = Romeo & Juliet?Entertainment Weekly‘s Mandi Bierly has more Season 3 goodies courtesy of Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, and this time we have a nice tease for the developing relationship between Tyler and Caroline. Last we left our species-crossed pair, they were cuddling underneath a blanket in differing stages of (un)dress. And it looks like romance is indeed in the air though, like everything on The Vampire Diaries, it’s complicated:

“We now have a mother who knows her daughter’s a vampire, and we might soon have a mayor who figures out that her son is a werewolf,” Williamson says. “When that happens, it’s certainly building itself to a family feud. That’s the fun Mystic Falls storyline that’s underplaying throughout the entire season.”

Comic Con 2011: Details on the Vampire Diaries WB booth signingWarner Bros. has made big changes this year in how they will handle booth signings. For safety reasons, WB has agreed to adopt Comic Con’s official ticket distribution system. What does this mean? It means fans wanting to attend a signing event at the Warner Bros. booth will need to enter a random ticket drawing for the chance at scoring a wristband. Only that wristband will grant you access to the signing.

From the official WB press release:

Fans interested in attending signings at the Warner Bros. booth should review the schedule listed below, then plan to visit the Sails Pavilion at the time of each drawing. All fans present at the appointed time will receive numbered tickets that feature a distinct sticker. Then a randomized drawing will determine which fans receive wristbands granting access to each autograph line.

 

Info on the Vampire Diaries ticket drawing and signing are below:
Saturday, July 23
The Vampire Diaries
Ticket Distribution (Sails Pavilion #9): 11:00 a.m.
Autograph Signing (Warner Bros. Booth, #4545): 1:00 p.m.

 

Now, I know a lot of fans are upset by this news. Everyone wants a chance at coming face to face with the cast, getting a poster signed, etc. (And you will still have that chance with the ticket lottery.) But having been to Comic Con more than a few times now and experiencing first-hand the mob that gathers around the Warner Bros. booth – this is a good thing. Comic Con gets bigger every year, but the convention center and Exhibitor’s Hall remain the same. I guarantee once you see the Exhibitor’s Hall set-up and experience it packed to the gills with wall to wall people, you’ll understand why this was a necessary move for the WB, not only for safety reasons but for organization/schedule reasons as well. There seems to be a lot of concern about whether fans will be able to make the panel if they manage to snag a signing wristband. I’d say your chances of attending both are considerably improved with the new ticket system, as the signing will mostly likely be more organized and move quicker than years past.

That being said, good luck to everyone trying to snag a signing wristband! And, most importantly, have a blast at the Con.
