Entertainment Weekly sat down with Nina Dobrev during a recent TVD set visit to talk about the Season 3 finale, Elena’s transition, and Salvatores:
“She’s confused and changing and having different cravings and having different urges,” says Dobrev. “I feel like she’s kind of gone back to being stuck in the middle between the two boys.”
Give Me My Remote has more with Julie Plec, who discusses the show’s success, Twitter reactions to the Season 3 finale, and why Season 4 will not be slowing things down:
JP: And so I went into season 3 and I told all the actors, “This is the year we really need to prove to everybody that we’re good at what we do and this show is never going to falter. And the quality of storytelling, quality of production, quality of performance is our priority, and we’re going to do it, we’re going to work our asses off so nobody thinks this was just a fluke.” And we did so well in season 3 that I think in the back of our heads, we thought we could step back a little in season 4 and sleep a little. And then we get to season 4 and we realized, no, it’s been going so well, we haven’t faltered yet, let’s just drive this train all the way to the end of the series and never let anyone say, “You really blew it.” So that’s the goal.
And Zap2It has a nice introduction to upcoming guest star Grace Phipps, whose character, April, takes her bow on The Vampire Diaries in tonight’s episode. Spoiler alert: Phipps is really charming.
Phipps brings a great new energy to the cast, while April shifts the dynamic of the show a bit. Now, Elena isn’t concerned about saving herself all the time — she’s got a new, innocent person in town who means a lot to her, and keeping April safe begins to take priority. As we’ll see in tonight’s episode, “Memorial,” keeping April safe is much easier said than done thanks to a new hunter in town.
