Steven R. McQueen made the interview rounds today and he’s talking Jeremy/Bonnie (of course), Uncle John, Klaus, Tyler, and how he’d like Jeremy to get further and further into the Mystic Falls supernatural mix.
McQueen has his fingers crossed that Bonnie and Elena won’t be put in the situation where one of them must sacrifice their life for the other. “It’s definitely a possibility, but I don’t think Jeremy could handle that,” he says. “I think, come what may, Jeremy would sacrifice himself before he’d let anything hurt Bonnie or Elena.”
You hear that, Luka (Bryton James)? If you try to mess with Bonnie any more, Jeremy’s coming for you. “Damn right!” McQueen says. “Damn right. Nobody’s messing with Jeremy’s girl. He’s pretty defensive with Luka right now, but we can expect to see things even out a little bit with them coming up.”
Has he ever asked the writers why Jeremy’s sister, Elena, who we’re told needs to be sacrificed by a wolf or vampire to break a curse, can’t just wear the ring he’s currently sporting that keeps its human bearer from dying a supernatural death? “I haven’t asked it, just because I want to keep wearing it. [Elena’s sibling] is a four-year-old girl named Margaret in the books,” he says, “and that’s not exactly job security on my side. [In a pleading voice] I’m hoping to keep that ring on my finger.”
“Klaus is the most powerful vampire there is. He has power over every other vampire and he can compel every vampire,” Steven says. “He’s the guy with all the power. And his intentions aren’t all that great. He’s trying to sacrifice someone in my family and I don’t want that to happen. We’re trying to do everything we can to stop it.”
From our fans on Twitter, @mus1c_ wants to know: Which other character from the show would you like to see Jeremy share more scenes with?
Steven R. McQueen: Any of them! I would love to see Jeremy start training in the vampire hunting ways a little more, maybe with Alaric, possibly with Uncle John. Even though that’s a bit of a complicated relationship, just to start accepting his family responsibility and start getting involved with the whole vampire hunting thing.
