As the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries draws to a close, Julie Plec is much in demand for interviews to discuss the last two episodes and the future of the show in general. With The Originals on the horizon too there’s even more to talk about. These interviews cover a lot of different topics and include some hints about upcoming episodes; beware of spoilers!
In this interview with ETonline, Julie talks about Nina Dobrev’s pivotal role in making season four a success.
ETonline: Arguably the success of this year depended on having an actor who could bring the excellent writing to life. And honestly, if The CW was ever going to break into the Emmy race, Nina Dobrev is the one to do it.
Plec: Right? It was definitely scary because we knew the entire season hinged on Nina’s ability to dig into some deep places she hadn’t had to dig before. Had she not spent the last three years successfully playing 960 characters, we would have been a little more worried [laughs]. For me, there was a moment in the season premiere where the director called me to say the entire crew burst into applause after he shot it.
TV Fanatic has a lot of questions for Julie and there are definitely some spoilers in this one. Click at your own risk!
TVF: Whether the Veil is going to drop or not, is that what Silas really wants or is there more that has yet to be revealed?
JP: There is definitely more to the Silas story than has been told. His motives…he’s pretty honest. It’s just some details that he’s left out.
This interview from Zap2it focuses on the status of the sire bond and what we can expect to learn before the season ends.
“Definitely before the season’s over, we have our answer to the question of does the sire bond still exist, and if not, then what are her feelings and who are they for,” executive producer Julie Plec reveals.
