Oct 14th: Supernatural’s Lauren Cohen Joins Vampire Diaries Cast

Linda | Categories: News, TV Series | Comments Off on Supernatural’s Lauren Cohen Joins Vampire Diaries Cast

There’s a new vampire in Mystic Falls, “Vampire Diaries” fans. Sources confirm to Zap2it that “Supernatural’s” Lauren Cohan will be sinking her teeth into the role of Rose, a tough, sexy vampire who might just catch Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) eye.

But then again, doesn’t everybody?

Rose is over 500 years old and described as disarmingly elegant despite a “tough girl” first impression. Five centuries of bloodsucking have given her a certain edge. “Maybe there’s some humanity left in her — have fun finding it,” my source says.

She’s expected to make her first appearance in Episode 8, titled “Rose” — yeah, she’s kind of a big deal.

Cohan is best known for her role as the mercenary Bela Talbot on “Supernatural.”

Oct 9th: ‘Vampire Diaries’ builds on buzz with cast tour

Michelle | Categories: Candice Accola, Events, Ian Somerhalder, News | Comments Off on ‘Vampire Diaries’ builds on buzz with cast tour

Television is too vast to declare Vampire Diaries the best show. Declaring it the best vampire show on TV doesn’t do it justice. Just as Friday Night Lights is a football show that isn’t about football, Vampire Diaries is a vampire show that isn’t really about vampires.

Five episodes into its second season, the CW has a steadily building hit on its hands. The show, from Dawson’s Creek creator Kevin Williamson, played to critical acclaim during its debut season. Viewers, perhaps besotted by so much pop-culture bloodletting with the Twilight movie franchise and hyped-to-the-hilt HBO series True Blood, have been slower to catch on.

This week’s almost 10 percent bump in ratings reflects a show gaining traction, particularly with its target audience of teens. To fan those flames, the show is sending some of its stars out to meet fans in an event that’s a cross between a campaign tour and Beatle-mania. The three-city tour kicks off in Dallas today as stars Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) will be at the Hot Topic store at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco to promote the launch of The Original Television Soundtrack: The Vampire Diaries.

Considering that Vampire Diaries swept the TV categories in this year’s Teen Choice Awards, with Somerhalder winning as best villain, and that Somerhalder also claimed the title of Entertainment Weekly ‘s “Sexy Beast Champion,” this afternoon’s appearance promises to be quite a scene. While earplugs may not be required, they could come in handy. Accola has some experience with this kind of thing.

“I was a backup singer for a Miley Cyrus-Jonas Brothers tour, so I’ve seen pandemonium in its craziest form,” the 23-year-old singer-actress says, speaking by phone from Atlanta, where Vampire Diaries is produced. “I’ve seen it from the side but never been at the center of it.

“But the guys, especially Ian, have to handle most of that kind of craziness. The show has a really devoted fan base, but everybody’s just been really sweet and complimentary with me.”

It’s easy to understand fans’ devotion. Vampire Diaries has assembled a cast of not just young and attractive actors – they are also charismatic and convincing. The writing, meanwhile, is consistently smart and surprisingly sophisticated. The show finds that vampires are a perfect metaphor for the experience of adolescence – feeling outside, apart, different; the clash of feeling immortal and vulnerable; on and on. It’s by turns wildly fantastical and dead-on realistic, kind of like, you know, being a teenager can be. True Blood may have bigger stars and get bigger headlines, but compared to Vampire Diaries it seems like a silly melodrama full of bad accents and R-rated gore.

Ask Accola what’s been the best part of starring on Vampire Diaries and you might expect her to talk about stuff that boils down to fame and fortune – tales of red carpets and paparazzi. But no. Keep in mind, she’s just 23 and both her parents are accomplished and, more to the point, non-showbiz professionals.

“The most significant thing that’s come out of all this so far is that my parents can sleep at night,” Accola says. “When I told them I wanted to be an actress they were very supportive but, you know, they worried.

“But now, I’m on a popular show on a network they’ve heard of, so they can relax.”Plan your life

The Vampire Diaries-Hot Topic tour stops at Stonebriar Centre at 4 p.m. today. 2601 Preston Road, Frisco. Wristband required for autographs (community.hottopic.com/ events). Q&A, Sounds Under Radio performance are public. 972-668-6255 (shopstone briar.com).

Oct 5th: Write up in the UK about the start of the new season! (Mirror.co.uk TV)

Michelle | Categories: News, Season 2 | Comments Off on Write up in the UK about the start of the new season! (Mirror.co.uk TV)

Expect doppelganger hijinks aplenty as season two returns crammed with new shockers and a double workload for the show’s star Nina Dobrev.

After the unexpected return of vampire Katherine provided a spine-tingling, finger-chopping cliffhanger to series one, Dobrev is going to be a busy girl this season, playing both nice Elena and her evil lookie-likey.

It won’t just be the fellow ­residents of Mystic Falls who are tricked by this though. Viewers will be, too, as the love triangle between Elena and brothers Damon and Stefan turns into an even more complicated and ­mischievous love rectangle.

And in a week where brotherly love and hate has been the sub-text of many a news story, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhelder provide some of tonight’s most heartfelt scenes.

Meanwhile, after the death of the town’s mayor in last season’s finale, his younger brother Mason Lockwood arrives – a cool werewolf in black sheep’s clothing. When Katherine says, “Game on,” she’s not kidding.


Don’t forget UK fans, The Vampire Diaries season 2 starts tonight at 9pm on ITV2

Sep 30th: ‘Vampire Diaries’: Ian Somerhalder on romance, bromance, and changing the world

Michelle | Categories: Ian Somerhalder, News | Comments Off on ‘Vampire Diaries’: Ian Somerhalder on romance, bromance, and changing the world

There’s no denying that both Salvatore brothers on “The Vampire Diaries” are good-looking and charming enough to make a girl forget about the whole blood-sucking dilemma.

But while Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) idea of a romantic evening involves making out on a Ferris wheel after hours, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has a different way of showing Elena (Nina Dobrev) that he cares.

“Well, there’s no better way to say I love you than breaking her brother’s neck,” Somerhalder tells Zap2it. “What happened to flowers and chocolate and love letters? For Damon it’s snapping your brother’s cervical vertebrae, therefore severing his spinal cord and killing him.”

Wow. It’s a wonder he’s still single.

When I hung out with Ian this summer, he told me that Damon’s vulnerable moments are the most difficult for him to play out as an actor. I had to ask him how he’s holding up, since Damon’s soft underbelly has been exposed more in the last three episodes than in the entirety of Season 1.

“How do I put this?” he says, before pausing and choosing his words carefully. “I don’t feel stagnant, or muted, but it feels a bit counter-intuitive. There’s some really cool stuff coming up for Damon, though.”

That neck-snapping incident was so startling that a good portion of the show’s fans lost hope for Damon and Elena ever hooking up. Will he ever win her over again?

“I don’t see how,” Somerhalder says, “but that’s the idea. She hates him now, but she won’t forever. It’ll get figured out.” Despite his heartache, Damon hasn’t given up on Elena — in fact, his feelings for her may help him transcend a centuries-old rivalry. In the past, Damon and Stefan allowed Katherine to come between them. This time around, their love for the same woman might actually help them bridge the gap.

“Damon and Stefan are going to have to set their differences aside to protect what they love, and that’s Elena. Damon is pretty envious of Stefan at this point, but he’s going to bury that. Damon sees the bigger picture. There are some serious problems in town that could possibly affect Elena, who is his top priority.”

“Look,” Somerhalder continues. “Damon got his heart ripped out twice within like an hour, but he still has something to fight for. There are three things he cares about protecting: Elena, his brother, and the town.”

To keep fighting the good fight, Damon and Stefan first need some answers. Unfortunately, their manipulative psycho-ex Katherine is the only one who can offer them. In the next episode, she’ll take us back in time once again.

“The flashback stuff is really cool – it’s always cool. We learn a great deal from Katherine,” he says. “There’s a lot of exposition about what happened, but then again, like with Damon last year, you have to consider the source of your information. With Damon, you get some of the truth, but not the whole truth, and Katherine, like Damon, is very convincing.”

Of course, Damon and Stefan don’t have to act alone. Damon and Alaric (Matthew Davis) have proven a formidable team when it comes to protecting Mystic Falls and the Gilberts.

“Damon and Alaric are the oddest of bedfellows,” he jokes. “Matt Davis and I love being on set together. We just have so much fun. We totally have a bromance going on. He’s my bro, you know?”

The frenemies have more in common than they might want to admit. “At the end of the day, Alaric and Damon are kindred spirits. They’re two of a kind. They were both in love with these women who wanted nothing to do with them. They have this sort of commonality of pain.”

They’ve recently gained another unlikely ally who knows the sting of lost love. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) has somehow turned to Damon for guidance… despite the fact that Damon killed him not too long ago.

“Jeremy’s probably a little pissed off,” Somerhalder says. “And he could definitely be deemed as self-destructive, but right now he’s tired of sitting by the wayside. He realizes that, coming out of the haze of addiction, he’s got a lot to give. There are a lot of things he’s concerned about, and above his own safety there’s the safety of the town and his sister. He’s a part of this now. We’ve all got to take Katherine down, whatever it takes.”

Though Katherine may be public enemy number one, Damon hasn’t forgotten those mysterious Lockwood men. “Mason poses a major threat to Damon. Damon’s not going to sit around, no way,” says Somerhalder. “There definitely will be some conflict there, some clashing. Who’s to say what Mason’s intentions are? But either way you shake it, Damon doesn’t like him and doesn’t want him around.”

While Damon may not be a fan of the wolfpack invading his hometown, Somerhalder has taken to devoting his off-screen time to helping needy animals in his own hometown of Covington, La.

In support of the largest humane society in Louisiana, Somerhalder is headed home on Nov. 13 to host a benefit dinner. “It’s called Bash on the Bayou. I can’t wait to see everyone there,” he says, “but if people can’t come, I just tweeted last night that there’s another way to help out.”

If you donate $50 to St. Tammany Humane Society, Somerhalder will sign a personalized headshot just for you. For the details on how to donate online, over the phone, or by mail, visit this link. Somerhalder’s fans have already been successful in helping out St. Tammany, since the organization won $20,000 from Chase Community Giving in July.

“I can’t tell you how thankful I am,” he says. “When I pull up to the humane society and the car makes noise on the gravel, all the animals freak out, and you realize just how many animals are there because of the decibel level. Then you walk by and they’re so adorable. They just want love. They don’t want to attack you, they want to lick you. They just want interaction. To think that because of this money and because of the efforts of so many Vampire Diaries fans, those animals will be able to find homes and treatments – it’s amazing.”

Somerhalder is still thinking big when it comes to changing the world. Stay tuned for more opportunities to work with him to make a change. “You can’t do any of this alone,” he says. “The support that I get from the fans is so f***ing humbling. It’s unbelievable how amazing these people are. We’re gonna save a lot of little baby animals. We’re going to make a difference.”

Sep 30th: ‘The Vampire Diaries’: Candice Accola talks Caroline and Tyler, biting strangers, and Katherine

Michelle | Categories: Candice Accola, News | Comments Off on ‘The Vampire Diaries’: Candice Accola talks Caroline and Tyler, biting strangers, and Katherine

Female vampires don’t exactly have a good track record for survival on “The Vampire Diaries,” so when Candice Accola found out that her character would be vamping out in Season 2, she was uneasy.

“Reaction number one was super excited, but reaction number two was super terrified,” Accola tells Zap2it. “It was luckily followed up with a wonderful phone call from [executive producer] Kevin Williamson saying not to be worried, at least for right now.”

My heart broke last week when Caroline had to end her relationship with Matt (Zach Roerig) for his safety, since as a new vampire, she still can’t control her bloodlust. “Last season, Caroline would’ve said ‘I want to be with him anyway and I know that I’m going through my own stuff, but i don’t care, if I’m going down then I want to bring him down with me,'” Accola says. Along with the fangs comes a “new, evolved version of Caroline.”

“It’s a big step for her,” Accola says. “She’d rather break her own heart than break his heart and hurt him. It’s big for her as a character and as a young girl becoming a young woman, supernatural qualities or not.”

Is there any chance of a reconciliation? “Their paths will definitely cross. We’ll see what happens,” she teases.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of other boys in town. I had to ask about the possibility of Caroline and soon-to-be-werewolf Tyler (Michael Trevino) hooking up.

“There’s obviously been such an incredible tease of Tyler’s pending transformation. He’s becoming a werewolf, which happens to coincide with Caroline’s transformation into a vampire,” she says. “It opens up a very beautiful opportunity for them to have some kind of a relationship, be it a friendship or something more, just to have someone going through the same thing.”

Tyler’s already made out with Matt’s mom, after all. What’s a little ex-girlfriend action after that?

More than any new boy drama, though, Accola is most looking forward to the show’s exploration of a few other areas of Caroline’s life. “We’re really going to get into Caroline’s relationship with herself and her relationship with her mother,” she says. “That’ll take precedence before new boys. All of Season 1, the biggest thing consuming Caroline’s life was whether she had a boy to love her, and whether her friends love her. In her breakup with Matt she realizes that she has to love herself.”

One of the most intriguing things about Caroline’s transformation story is the fact that her mother is the town Sheriff, and an active member of the Council — a group of vampire hunters from the towns’ founding families. When Sheriff Liz Forbes finds out that her daughter is one of the creatures she’s after, her world will be rocked significantly.

“It’s actually a very, very human story,” Accola says. “Look at it this way — there’s a point in your life where there’s something about you that your parents don’t agree with. Not that this was Caroline’s choice or her own doing, but now she has a lifestyle her parents don’t agree with. Is there still going to be that unconditional love that a mother’s supposed to have for her child? Is that going to still exist? It’s not just a vampire story. It’s a growing-up story.”

Though she’s making some progress toward putting herself first, Caroline’s heightened insecurities make her even more vulnerable to Mystic Falls’ newest (and oldest) villain, Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev).

“It’ll be interesting to see if she does crumble under Katherine’s fist or if she, now that she’s a vampire and is starting to make decisions for herself, if she’s going to stand up to her,” Accola says.

Last week’s episode ended with a cliffhanger that implied that Caroline may be swayed into joining Team Katherine. But could Mystic Falls’ resident control-freak cheerleader really turn evil?

“Caroline is in a very precarious situation,” says Accola’s co-star, Ian Somerhalder. “She’s just holding on for dear life. I’ve been playing this vampire for 18 months, so watching Candice as Caroline is really fascinating for me. Katherine came in as a deviant powerhouse, but while Caroline has some insecurity issues, deep down, she’s a good person. She’s a sweet, innocent girl. Deep down, Katherine and Damon, by default, are not very good people. Whatever has happened to Damon and Katherine in their lives and whatever choices they’ve made, it doesn’t make them very good individuals.”

Somerhalder’s character, Damon, spent a considerable part of Season 1 sinking his teeth into Caroline. Now that the tables are turned and she’s the one doing the biting, Accola says she takes extra care.

“I’m so my mother’s child when it comes to the biting and the stuntwork,” she laughs. “I’m safety-obsessed. With last week’s episode, when I bit Carter, I’d just met him about an hour before in the makeup trailer. It’s such a bizarre conversation to have with someone. ‘So, you can feel the tips of the fangs. I’ll keep my mouth shut when I come up to your neck, it’ll just be like a kiss, just my lips, and I’ll try not to puncture you. It’s nice to meet you!'”

Accola is loving Caroline’s new attitude — and she particularly enjoyed the scene where she finally told Damon off for manipulating her, abusing her, and feeding on her last year.

“Hell yeah!” she says. “That was epic. Finally she put him in his place. I’m always a fan of women who kick ass on screen so when I read the scripts and Caroline gets to be stronger now, it’s just been really really fun. I’ve been feeling very powerful.”
