We’re all wondering: How long can Bonnie’s death stay secret? TV Guide spoke with Kat Graham about this and other matters, including Bonnie’s evolving relationship with Jeremy:
“They continue to evolve and grow, and it’s exciting because Bonnie has never had that before. So, it’s new territory for her. She’s always been about her magic and her girlfriends and saving the town. So, for her to have these moments with Jeremy are really special.” And what about a ghostly kiss? “I can’t say, but it seems like a natural progression,” she says. “Although who knows how they’ll do it now that I’m dead.”
Yeah, being dead sort of puts a few obstacles in the way of romance. Kat also talks about Bonnie’s connection with new character Tessa.
Eager for more of Klaus and Cami’s interactions? Watch this TV Guide exclusive webclip from next week’s episode, Girl in New Orleans (EP104).
Joseph Morgan recently spoke with TV Guide about the battle – or game – between Klaus and his former protege:
“It’s going to be harder to pull the wool over Marcel’s eyes, but that’s what makes it interesting because there’s this game between the two of them,” Morgan says. “They really don’t trust each other, and they’re really sussing each other up. But there are still moments where the cards are laid on the table and then they go back to playing the game. Klaus is going to have to constantly understand that Marcel does know what’s going on and change accordingly.”
He also talks a bit about Klaus’s relationships with his siblings, so make sure you check out the whole thing!
Another interview with Kat Graham, this time from KTLA.
Over at The Hollywood Reporter, Kat Graham talks about Bonnie’s otherworldly dilemma, and why she’s keeping it to herself.
“There is definitely going to be some fighting,” Kat Graham, who plays Bonnie, tells The Hollywood Reporter. “If she does tell anyone about it, it makes it real, which I think she was always trying to avoid.”
In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite from TV Guide, we learn a little about Dr. Wesley Maxfield, who will be joining a long-established club of TVD teachers who are a lot more complicated than they seem.
“He can be a jerk,” Cosnett told TVGuide.com about his character during our visit to the show’s set. “There’s a side to him that will be revealed which is not as nice as we’d all like.”
Rebekah is set to show up on The Originals tonight, and Charles Michael Davis talked to TV Guide about the relationship his character Marcel has with the Original sister:
“[Their sexual tension] is high,” Davis tells TVGuide.com. “This is a great episode for them because it flashes back to the 1800s and also goes to present day so you’ll get an understanding of their whole relationship.” As Holt recently told us, “There’s still a really strong attraction between Marcel and Rebekah. There’s a really long history there, and I don’t think when you have a deep forbidden love that just goes away.”
He also talks about Marcel’s dynamics with Cami, Davina, and Klaus. And make sure you take a look at TV Guide’s fall TV crush video if you haven’t seen that yet!
HAPPY SERIES PREMIERE DAY! The Originals: Always and Forever (EP101) airs TONIGHT at 9/8c after the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries. Lots of interviews and such hitting the web today, so quick hits:
“Klaus is an anti-hero. He’s an antagonist. He’s always going to have that edge. That idea that no matter how good he is, he can always just mess it up for himself.”
So he won’t be selling Girl Scout cookies?
“I mean, maybe poisonous Girl Scout cookies,” Morgan says with a sneaky smile. “To girl scouts.”
The Associated Press (via Huffington Post) – ‘The Originals’ Premiere: Joseph Morgan On Klaus’ Weakness And His Fanboy Side:
AP: Klaus was a big deal on “The Vampire Diaries.” He was talked about before he showed up on the show. Did you realize how important the role was to the story?
Morgan: I thought about like, ‘You know, maybe he should have a different name like they could call him like William or something.’ And then I looked up (the character) online and I was like, ‘Oh, no. This is already an established thing. We can’t go changing this.’
The Hollywood Reporter – ‘The Originals’ Preview: Charles Michael Davis on Marcel’s Kryptonite and Klaus’ Nightmare
How much more of Marcel’s background or journey can you reveal?
[Executive producer] Julie [Plec] laid it out in a way where all the regulars are connected in ways that we didn’t really imagine. She told us at our first table read, “All right, this is what’s going on with you and you …” We’re like, “That’s really detailed, that’s intricate, that’s deep.” Deep in the sense that you get a good feeling of it. Plus, in The Originals, being alive for a few thousand years, it’s a small world. All the characters have crossed paths. Given the fact that Marcel runs New Orleans, I’m sure he has relationships with everybody in that city.
As seen in the premiere, Sophie (Daniella Pineda) is the witch embroiled in the battle between Klaus and Marcel. And now that she’s gotten mixed up in Hayley’s baby drama, she probably wishes she’d never gotten involved. “She was never terribly invested in all of this and it’s all come down on her [since Marcel killed her sister],” Pineda says. “She’s under a terrible amount of pressure, but she’s being so careful and she’s so calculating that even though she’s terrified, she’s not going to show it. She’s also more powerful than people think.”
And here’s a super-fun piece from Entertainment Weekly: ‘The Originals’ star Joseph Morgan steals from EW offices.
Last time we saw Stefan Salvatore, he was trapped in a giant safe and disappearing underwater. Not the best way to spend a post-graduation summer, right? Paul Wesley tells TV Guide that the youngest Salvatore brother will definitely be “screwed up in the head” by his tortuous experience, but before Stefan returns to town, Wesley gets to play a true-blue villain: Silas.
“Silas has so much pain and anger and hurt, but it’s masked by a level of light energy and humor,” Wesley says. “[He isn't] intimidated by anything and the world is his playground. He’s 2000 years old and finds himself to be supremely more interesting and sophisticated. He doesn’t feed on people, he thinks it’s gross and primitive, so he manipulates people into cutting themselves and pouring their blood and then he drinks it; he’s a little snobby.”
In the latest TV Guide on-set video interview, Candice Accola discusses the relationship between Caroline and Tyler and how it might evolve in season five.
“They definitely care for each other, but we’ll see that things have changed,” Accola says. “It does parallel what young relationships go through when they move to college and are in two separate places. You’re trying to figure out yourself and your life and your path and trying to meet other people. It’s a lot for a relationship to withstand. So, we’ll see how long she’s able to do that.”
TV Guide caught up with The Originals star Phoebe Tonkin on set recently, and asked about how Klaus and Hayley will be getting along now that they’re becoming parents together.
“Each episode is different. They go between resenting each other and protecting each other a little bit,” Tonkin says. “But they have some really beautiful moments. They’re both in this … and are in situations they didn’t ask for. … [They] realize they’re now the parents of something else and they can’t be as selfish.”
Just over a week until The Vampire Diaries returns to our television screens on Thursday, October 3rd, and critics who have seen the premiere are tossing fans a handful of teases.
