Contrary to earlier information, Kayla Ewell didn’t appear on CBS’ The Early Show (apologies for that). She was, however, on WPIX morning news, and we have the video for you to watch below. Kayla talks about the Vampire Diaries, being the opposite of Vicki when she was at school, how she wanted to play Vicki from the beginning, working in Atlanta, attraction to bad boy vampires, and working on the show.
Thanks to Johanna for pointing us at this!
The trailer for next week’s episode of the Vampire Diaries, “You’re Undead to Me”. Looks like we’ve got a treat in store. Thanks to Vampire Diaries Spoilers for the video!
Update: Video removed by YouTube. Watch the extended trailer instead.
Ian Somerhalder spoke to CW Source during their visit to the set of the Vampire Diaries, and talks with them about Damon’s background, his sense of humour, working with the crow (actually a raven), and playing the bad guy.
Seventeen Magazine has a lighthearted Q&A with Candice Accola where she talks about the usual – living and working in Atlanta, hanging with the cast, and why those scripts are on lockdown:
17: Are you on the edge of your seat every time you get a new script?
CA: We actually got in trouble, [but] we’re all blaming Nina [Dobrev] who plays Elena. Nina took the script from the hair and makeup trailer because we’ve been dying to know what will happen next. And then she got caught, and so now, they have scripts on lockdown, and they won’t tell us any information!
And this afternoon had two radio interviews with Vampire Diaries cast members:
The first was BuzzWorthy’s interview with Michael Trevino who, according to many of you on Twitter, had a way better radio voice than the guy interviewing him. (Radio can’t have him, he’s on our TV.) Ends up Michael has also read the books (the first four), hints that perhaps there’s a reason why Tyler is such a jerk and bully (and maybe it has something to do with his parents), and that we might be seeing a different side of Tyler in upcoming episodes (especially when it comes to Vicki). He also played coy on the Lockwood family in general and referred to Mystic Falls’ history having a very real impact on the newest generation. We’re also pretty sure he dropped a super-vague hint about a particular character’s appearance later on down the road. You can listen to the entire interview (half hour) over at BuzzWorthy.
And on Stardish Radio, Jasmine Guy shed a little more light on her upcoming role as Grams, Bonnie’s witchy (and, uh, drunk?) grandmother, whom she apparently has the honor of naming and was soliciting suggestions (which included the Salem-inspired Tituba and Katerina’s suggestion of Sadie). She also revealed the name of Bonnie’s great-great-great-great grandmother (hover to see), Birdy Mae, and said she looks forward to seeing more of not only the race dynamics of the show’s Civil War-era flashbacks, but also the way vampires and witches interact, and what the “rules” will be for the show’s witches. Listen to the interview over at Stardish.
And finally, there’s an itty bitty Paul video snippet over at People.com where he talks about the best thing about growing up in New Jersey.
Courtesy of the CW, we have another new clip from this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, Family Ties, and it’s all Salvatores and suits.
They also have yet another interview with Paul at Comic Con. He doesn’t really say much new here, but for posterity’s sake:
The CW has released an intense little clip from next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, Family Ties, featuring Elena and Stefan.
A longer version of the “Family Ties” trailer from last night’s episode of the Vampire Diaries has been released (thanks for the headsup, Denise!). You can watch it below.
Those of you in the USA who have missed episodes can watch the pilot for free and episodes 2 (“Night of the Comet”) and 3 (“Friday Night Bites”) for $1.99 each on Amazon video on demand.
Thanks to KryptonSite, we have the trailer for next week’s episode, “Family Ties” (below) and also the official synopsis for episode six, “Lost Girls” (which was directed by Marcos Siega and written by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec). This is the episode that a lot of fans have been waiting for. Why? Flashbacks, baby! You can read the synopsis over on the episode index if you want to know a few more spoilery details.
The ‘exotic, exquisite Katerina Graham’ chatted to Stardish Radio earlier this evening, and she proved to be a very cool lady. It’s impossible to summarise the show (it’s an hour long, after all), but it’s full of Vampire Diaries goodness, with a range of topics, including: Katerina’s music career, her taste in fashion and design, auditioning for the Vampire Diaries, Bonnie’s background, changes from the books, and working with everyone on set. You can listen to a recording of the show over on the Stardish Radio website.
Finally, Pop Vox has an interview with Ian Somerhalder, who goes into some more detail about the difficulties of auditioning for Damon:
How did you end up in The Vampire Diaries?
I desperately wanted it. My girlfriend and I were in the desert in Vegas, and I realized I’d missed this meeting. My agent called me back and said, “They need you there at 11 in the morning, having memorized nine pages of the script.” It’s now 9 o’clock at night in Vegas. We got up very early and I drove across the desert while she slept. I taped my pages together; that’s how I worked on the material.
This, ladies and gents, is what we call a tease. E! Online has an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode, Friday Night Bites:
