As reported by Michael Ausiello of EW.com,  Courtney Ford has been cast in the recurring role of Vanessa, a grad student, for Season 2.  Ford is known for her role as Trinity’s daughter on the television show Dexter.

The Vampire Diaries is introducing some fresh blood for Damon.Sources confirm to me exclusively that Courtney Ford — a.k.a. Trinity’s daughter on Dexter — has landed the potentially recurring role of Vanessa, a grad student at Duke who helps Damon, Alaric, and Elena go through Isobel’s old research.

At Comic-Con last month, exec producer Kevin Williamson hinted that the character may be harboring a secret or two. “She’s not without her own intrigue,” he told me. “It’ll be a nice little part for someone. And it’s a part that could evolve into this massive story line or we could gut her like a fish.”

Vampire Diaries’ Storylines Will Return to the Books

Author: Linda | July 30, 2010 | Comments Off on Vampire Diaries’ Storylines Will Return to the Books

Filed Under: | News, Season 2

Executive producer Julie Pec says that future story lines for The Vampire Diaries will be taken from the novels.

The Vampire Diaries will be less ‘loosely based’ on the original novels in the future, according to Executive Producer Julie Plec. Fans of The Vampire Diaries novels have been pretty vocal about the differences between the novels, written by L.J. Smith, and the series. The first season of The Vampire Diaries was a wide departure from the books, and fans took notice. According to Plec, it was all done in the name of creating good TV.“The deeper we get into the series, ironically, the more we’re going to be taking from the books,” Plec told TV Guide. “That’s cool because we strayed so far so quickly, just by definition of trying to shape a good story in the right way for television.”

Not everyone has bemoaned the differences though. As the fan of a new television series based on an established mythology, it’s always a bit annoying to be spoiled by some book-worm. Surely The Vampire Diaries’ fans have experienced a lot of that and the same is true with True Blood, which is also based on a series of books. As for same of the differences between The Vampire Diaries books and the series:

In the book Elena has blonde hair and blue eyes, has a sister named Margaret – no Jeremy, and the story is set in Fell’s Church instead of Mystic Falls. Aside from subtle differences, fans of the literary Vampire Dairies pretty much look at the series as an entirely different story in most regards. Fan of the TV series, of course, are oblivious. Judging by the success of the series so far, it really doesn’t seem to matter – seems like Vampire Diaries will be sticking around for a while.

Vampire Dairies returns September 9, on TheCW.

Somerhalder ‘has heavier Diaries role’

Filed Under: | Ian Somerhalder, Season 2

Ian Somerhalder has revealed that he has a “heavier” role in the new season of The Vampire Diaries.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Somerhalder explained that he is not used to playing a nicer side of his character Damon.

“It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just very counter-intuitive,” he said. “These guys [Nina Dobrev, Matt Davis and Paul Wesley] – I have so much respect for them because they have a lot of weight on their shoulders at all times in most of these scenes and I just kind of breeze in and kind of screw around.”

At Comic-Con, the cast and executive producers of Vampire Diaries talked about Season 2, their characters, and had fun with the fans.

…The “Vampire Diaries” panel concluded at Comic-Con 2010 and we’re here with your minute-by-minute report. Between the laughs, sarcastic comments (cgi abs, anyone?) and uber attractiveness of the cast gracing the stage (Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Michael Trevino, Steven R. McQueen and Matt Davis. Plus, executive producers/writers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec), it was hard for us to pick out our favorite part!

4:30pm Marcos Siega, who has directed several episodes (as well as “True Blood” and other shows) moderates. A Season 1 sizzle reel opens the panel.

4:35 Ian’s arrival gets the biggest cheer, followed by Paul and Nina.

4:39 Kevin won’t give away whether Jeremy is going to be a vampire or not. “It’s the whole fun of the return.”

4:40 Julie Plec says that Tyler’s mom will step in as interim mayor now that her husband is dead. Kevin said fans of the book know about the Lockwood family curse, which Tyler will learn about this season. “His uncle comes to town for the funeral… He may hold a lot of answers.”

4:42 “I take my clothes off all the time,” Ian says to great cheers as Kevin wonders which cast member should follow suit. The mention of Damon and Elena together, as a possibility, gets huge cheers.

4:43 Kevin said Stefan and Katherine will come face to face in the very first episode. “Katherine is a pimp,” proclaims Nina. She said she likes to play “a bad girl” and “break hearts.” Kevin says it’s “freaky and scary” how good she is as Katherine.

4:44 Paul thinks the temptation for living blood will “never escape” Stefan. Kevin won’t say whether he’ll turn evil. “I’ll teach you Paul,” says Ian. HA!

4:45 Ian says “the nice Damon freaks me out. I don’t know how to do it well.” He said his favorite scenes are “the fun nutty kind of Damon.”

4:46 Julie says Paul’s hair has “it’s own number on the call sheet.” Nina adds that it’s helicoptered in. Kevin says he has the best abs. Ian says they are “insane.” The crowd roars their agreement.

4:48 Does Michael prefer Matt’s sister or his mom for Tyler? “Why not both?” When asked “Caroline or Bonnie?,” Steve replied, “Caroline” and then quickly tried to change the subject.

4:48 Paul hands Nina a Hershey’s kiss. She wouldn’t say whether Paul or Ian is a better kisser. “I’m the lucky one. I get to make out with them both.”

4:51 Michael says he’s scared to death because they don’t want his transformation to look corny or to copy any other shows. Kevin says “it’s really hard to fake that on a weekly basis,” mentioning the werewolf movie he did once. “There will be a transformation. It’ll happen. It’ll be part of his journey.”

4:52 “Anyone I date ends up dying,” Steven points out. Kevin says deaths on the show have to come from “a place of good storytelling.” He said Anna was going to be a smaller character but they loved her so much they expanded.

4:54 Will Damon turn good or more evil this season? Kevin said it won’t be the easy answer.

4:55 Steve would like to see “Jeremy fight back a little more.” Julie said his journey is “becoming a man” and figuring out “who you’re supposed to be.”

4:56 Matt would like his character to have a “filthy, dirty sex scene” with Jenna.

4:58 Paul thinks Stefan “should join a traveling circus.” He enjoyed “indulging in the blood.” He wants to see him “fulfill that vampire need” once in a while.

4:58 The panel joked about Stefan coming out of the closet.

4:59 “I’d love to do a flashback of Stefan in the 1980s dancing and having fun,” Paul said. “I’m serious.”

4:59 Nina said she’d like to see Elana “take on Katherine.” She said she loves the depth to their characters.

5:00 Ian said he’d like to see flashbacks of Damon’s past as well. “Front and center at a Rolling Stones concert in ’69.” He’d also like to see Damon get Stefan’s bedroom.

Exclusive: Vampire Diaries’ Exec Producers Talk Season 2

Author: Linda | July 26, 2010 | Comments Off on Exclusive: Vampire Diaries’ Exec Producers Talk Season 2

Filed Under: | News, Season 2, Spoilers, TV Series

Spoiler Alert!  TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive Q & A with The Vampire Diaries’ executive producers at Comic-Con 2010.

During Comic-Con weekend in San Diego, I was treated to an exclusive sit-down interview with Vampire Diaries executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec to discuss some of the Season 2 secrets they’re plotting.

TV Guide Magazine: Your first season included so many great theme episodes — like the bloody Halloween party and the Miss Mystic Falls pageant. Can we expect more of these events?
Williamson: The CW is very event-oriented, but I was initially very resistant of it. Last season was all built around Founder’s Day. And this year we’re considering three events as our big lead-up to the season finale.
Plec: We do have a carnival in our second episode, and in the third episode, Elena and Damon and Alaric travel together to Duke University, where Isobel, Alaric’s wife and Elena’s birth mother, met and lived together. She studied the paranormal and was an expert in the anthropology department which is how she disguised her vampire research. She had become obsessed with Mystic Falls and dug deep into the history of the town. So on their trip, they dig into her dusty files to see what she may have known that they don’t know.

TV Guide Magazine: What about another Halloween episode?
Williamson: We’re not looking at the show as if a whole year has passed, but we will have an episode timed to Halloween, which will be a huge masquerade ball that we’re now thinking of as a possible two-parter. S–t will hit the fan.

TV Guide Magazine: There will be one big murder?
Plec: Yes. At least.
Williamson: It’s getting harder and harder to look at our wall of death where we have photos of people like Anna (Malese Jow) and Bonnie’s grandmother (Jasmine Guy).
Plec: And Lexi (Arielle Kebbel)…

TV Guide Magazine: I was quite upset about Bonnie losing her Gran. Will we meet Bonnie’s parents?
Plec: People ask, ‘Why doesn’t Bonnie have parents?’ Well, Bonnie does have parents. She lives with her father, who we have not met on camera, but she does not have a relationship with her mother. These are characters we may possibly explore this year. Bonnie comes from a long line of Bennett witches and mom is out there somewhere…
Williamson: True Blood actually did with LaFayette’s mother (revealing her in a mental institution) what we wanted to do with Bonnie’s mother, even though we came up with that idea a year ago.
Plec: That happens all the time.
Williamson: Sometimes we’ll write dialogue and Nina Dobrev (Elena) will say, ‘You do realize that’s exactly what was said in Twilight, right?’ And I’ll tell her, ‘No, I had no idea.’ Vampire stories have been told for centuries so stories are going to overlap. I just don’t want to do it in the same way or too close to when the others do it.
