Ology has a new interview with Paul Wesley; the actor shares his thoughts on Elena’s siring and looks ahead at what’s coming up for Stefan and Damon’s ever-rocky relationship.
He also admits that he’s been Team Stefan pretty much from the beginning, even the he initially read to play a very different role.
You originally auditioned for the role of Damon. Do you ever wonder what it would have been like if you got that role?
[Paul Wesley] Yes. [Laughs] I never really thought about it after I got Stefan, but I definitely didn’t think—I thought Stefan was going to be really young and I think they did too. I just didn’t think I was age appropriate for Stefan, but I secretly preferred the role of Stefan. I just didn’t think it was going to happen. So when I read for Damon they didn’t think that was a match, but then I got a call like a month later and they were like, ‘Do you want to read for Stefan?’ I was actually relieved. I was so thrilled about it because I preferred it. So I hadn’t really looked back since.

News of The Originals spinoff has caused quite a sensation in the fandom. Everyone is asking questions about how it will work and above all, who we might see on it.
Entertainment Weekly interviewed Julie Plec on the topic, and she not only gives some details about the show’s mysterious new character, Marcel, she also has a few things to say about the possibility of guest stars that will have Elijah fans doing cartwheels in the aisles.
Would there be a role for Elijah (Daniel Gillies) in the spinoff, because there needs to be.
[Plec] Oh, in the world of Julie Plec [Laughs] and her obsession with Daniel Gillies, there is always a role for Elijah. It’s only a matter of whether in Daniel Gillies’ world there is an interest in having a job with Julie Plec. But I can hope the answer is yes.
When asked about the role of Rebekah, and whether we might be seeing Claire Holt in New Orleans, Julie allows for the possibility but does point out that Rebekah is very much in the middle of things on TVD right now, not to mention extremely put out with Klaus. Fortunately for Rebekah fans, Entertainment Weekly also spoke with Claire Holt recently, and she sheds a little more light (spoilers!) on what Rebekah’s up to in tomorrow night’s episode.
“Rebekah gathers Stefan, Elena, and Caroline in the high school and she basically psychologically tortures them,” Holt says. “She questions them about the tattoo, and the cure, and Stefan and Elena’s relationship, and it brings some uncomfortable truths to light. It’s definitely going to be much more difficult for Caroline, Elena, and Stefan than it is for Rebekah.”
Only a few more days until The Vampire Diaries returns from hiatus! It’s hard to be patient for even a few more days, but TV Guide is here to help with an exclusive clip from Thursday’s new episode, After School Special (EP410). Is it Thursday yet?!

We’ve got a teaser for you below, but don’t stop there! We’re happy to report that the whole cast is represented, (and most of them are rocking shades of charcoal, red and burgundy!). Head on over to E!Online to get your drool on, and don’t forget to mark the season premiere on your calendar. TVD will be back with a new episode on January 17th.
The CW has released the official synopsis for the January 17th mid-season premiere of The Vampire Diaries: After School Special (EP410). Highlight for spoilers:
REBEKAH IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE — Appearing unexpectedly at Mystic Falls High, Rebekah (Claire Holt) wastes no time trying to force Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) to answer her questions about the search for a cure, leading to a bombshell piece of information from Elena. When Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) father, Rudy Owens (guest star Rick Worthy, “Supernatural”), accepts the role of Interim Mayor, he makes it a priority to protect his daughter, who isn’t at all comfortable with the role he suddenly wants to play in her life. Professor Shane (guest star David Alpay) continues to encourage Bonnie to believe in her powers, but he soon finds himself in danger when he reveals too much to the wrong person. Later, Caroline does her best to comfort Tyler (Michael Trevino) after a violent confrontation. Meanwhile, at the lake house, Damon and Matt (Zach Roerig) train Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), trying to raise his game as a hunter, but Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is impatient with their progress and intervenes to speed up the process.
The episode was written by Brett Matthews and directed by David Von Ancken.
