Entertainment Weekly will be chatting with the cast of the Vampire Diaries at 6:30pm PT tomorrow (Saturday July 14th). Fans can watch it live on the Entertainment Weekly website and can submit questions for the cast by logging into the live chat.
The cast of the Vampire Diaries have recorded a video to thank the 13 million people who have followed them on Facebook, and to tell everyone to tune in for the Season 4 premiere on October 11th, 2012.
E!Online talked to Joseph Morgan at the Monte Carlo Film Festival about his past and future on the show, including Klaus’s body swaps with Alaric and Tyler and his future with Caroline. On why he isn’t dead yet:
“I think the intention was to kill me at the end of season three, and yet I live on, so I must be doing something right!” Joseph tells us of Klaus’ near-death in the season three finale. “Part of it is I love my job and I talked to the show’s creator [Julie Plec]; we talked about what would be the best thing to do. She said, ‘I think there are some more stories to tell with this character,” and I said, ‘I agree, and I would love to have the opportunity to tell them.’”
TVLine recently interviewed Julie Plec at the ATX Television Festival about Elena’s journey, Klaus’s fate, and more – including whether our wayward students will ever actually graduate from high school. And on Rebekah’s role next season:
“And with Rebekah, who is so vulnerable and damaged but has that tough exterior, we get to see a queen bee in action; we get to see a mean girl. As we get into the second half of their senior year, here’s Rebekah, still in Mystic Falls, heading back to school, completely ostracized from the community of people that she knows because of what she did to Elena and Matt [in the finale]. She’s completely loathed by the one guy [Matt] that she had a crush on, and also by her past love [Stefan]. What’s she going to do about that?”
They also caught up with Nina Dobrev and asked her how Elena will react next season to her big transition. In a sentence: “Yeah, I think she’s gonna freak out.”
Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or that somehow just fell through the cracks. Please insert theme song by Explosions in the Sky here and enjoy.
