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.
