Need a fix to last you through next week’s new episode? The CW has uploaded a webclip for A View To A Kill (EP412) featuring some good old-fashioned Original sibling squabbling. Enjoy!
Want a taste of next week’s episode, Catch Me If You Can (EP411)? Here’s a clip from the CW, in which Rebekah actually uses the term “Team Klaus” while hatching her plans with her new ally.
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.

In preparation for tonight’s return of The Vampire Diaries, TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross talked to Claire Holt about what’s coming up for Rebekah in tonight’s After School Special (EP410) as well as the rest of the season. What is Rebekah’s goal? Will she be using Stefan for that goal or might she have more complicated feelings? Watch the video to find out!
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?!
Well, we didn’t have to wait long for yet another sneak peek at next week’s The Vampire Diaries. Check out this scene between Rebekah and Matt from The Rager (EP403). the episode airs Thursday, October 25th.
TV Guide sits down with Joseph Morgan to discuss what the arrival of big bad vampire hunter Connor (Todd Williams, introduced in last night’s episode) means for Klaus and whether the Original sibling showdown that happened between Klaus and Rebekah in the premiere will have long term repercussions.
“Season 4 will … see that bond tested more than it’s ever been,” Morgan told us on the Atlanta set of the CW series. “He goes a little further than he’s ever gone and [as usual] Klaus likes to ruin everything for himself and push people away.”
