Thanks to @lara1070 for the heads up: Creation Entertainment has added Zach Roerig as a guest for their Vampire Diaries convention on April 14-15, 2012 in Chicago, IL.
Zach will be appearing Sunday, April 15, alongside Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder. Michael Trevino, Joseph Morgan, and Daniel Gillies will be appearing on Saturday, April 14. VISIT THE CREATION CHICAGO SITE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
The Insider has a new video of Paul Wesley talking about what’s going on with Stefan as we move forward from the last episode, and two exclusive behind the scenes pictures from tonight’s episode, Smells Like Teen Spirit (EP306). Beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen up through The Reckoning (EP305), and the same goes for the EW article below!
In other news, if you were hoping for some Jeremy/Katherine romance, you are out of luck today. E! Online spoke with Steven R. McQueen, and it seems there are a few things about Katherine’s personality that just don’t work for the youngest Gilbert. Steven said:
“Katherine usually has some sort of bad intention, and I think she is usually up to something. With my ring I’m like a never-failing blood bag, so I feel like me being around her is never all that good for me.”
Smart boy, that Jeremy! Besides, I think it’s safe to say he’s got his heads -and his brain!- already filled with girl trouble, both from the living and the dead. Add in Stefan’s new attitude and everyone in Mystic Falls had better be watching their backs, and their necks, tonight!
Check out this very cool behind-the-scenes video from E! News! There’s some really interesting little tidbits from the crew in this video, so there’s a glimpse of a side of the show we don’t normally get to see. Don’t worry, though, you’ll see some of the actors as well. Keep an eye out for Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev. Thanks to @VampDNetwork for the video!
If you missed the 2011 Scream Awards on Spike yesterday, never fear, we have some video for you. Paul Wesley co-presented a couple of awards with Erika Christensen, including Best Comic Book Writer, and Best Sci-Fi Actor.
Someone in the crowd also got a very cool little behind-the-scenes look at the presentation of the Best Sci-Fi Actor award. (the awards show was filmed several days before it aired).The video if you’d like to watch that, you can watch it here.
Big thanks to users DMspacefulPlus and Beckyabc2 for the videos!
It’s no secret that Paul Wesley loves playing the dark side, and from the sound of this interview, he’s not too eager to go back to being good. Hollywood Crush caught up with Paul at the 2011 Scream Awards and asked for his thoughts on Stefan’s possible redemption.
AOL.TV has a preview of this week’s episode, Smells Like Teen Spirit (EP306). SPOILER WARNING: the cast does their very best to avoid spoilers (and they’re good at it!) but if you haven’t seen up through The Reckoning (EP305), think carefully before you click.
Hint: Turn your speakers up high, some of the actor interviews are on the quiet side.
Entertainment Weekly also has some exclusive pictures from Smells Like Teen Spirit, you can see them here. Is it Thursday yet?!
About.com caught up with Paul Wesley at the 2011 Scream Awards. The actor is a big advocate for Ripper Stefan and is excited for the new stories unfolding this season. Paul was full of praise for Julie Plec, Kevin Williamson and the rest of the writers, but wouldn’t give any hints as to how long Stefan will be staying in Mystic Falls. We’ll just have to wait and see on that one!
The Scream Awards will air on Tuesday, October 18th, 9pm EST on Spike. Paul is a presenter this year, so keep an eye out for him during the show!
Paul Wesley announced via Twitter earlier today that he would be presenting at this year’s Scream Awards, SpikeTV’s annual awards show honoring the best in horror, science fiction, and fantasy media. The awards ceremony was tonight but you’ll be able to watch the big show this Tuesday, October 18th at 9pm/8c on Spike. In the meantime, check out photos of Paul and the lovely Torrey DeVitto on tonight’s red carpet (see more at Vampire Diaries Web) and continue to wonder why Vampire Diaries didn’t receive a single Scream nomination this year. (Oh, you thought we’d forgotten about that, Spike? Hmmm?)
