Feb 17th: The Vampire Diaries’: Daniel Gillies Talks Elijah and Elena’s Flirtation

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Season 3, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on The Vampire Diaries’: Daniel Gillies Talks Elijah and Elena’s Flirtation

Elijah’s seeming attraction to Elena comes from a similar desire to intrigue the audience. “Nina Dobrev and I just like working with each other and maybe we’re a little too flirty with each other. It just ends up in what we’re doing. That’s all it is. I really enjoy working with Ian Somerhalder. Not so flirty with Ian. Only with Nina.” He does think that there is more than simple friendship between the characters.”There’s some sort of unsaid thing that’s happening which I like. It’s going to sound pretentious, but it’s kind of like a spiritual romance. They both aspire to the same qualities in a person. I think that Elijah’s certainly enchanted by a nobility that she’s able to uphold, that he aspires to.” He may even forgive Elena after he learns that she has betrayed him. “He’s able to forgive Klaus (Joseph Morgan) for some atrocities. I think that if he thinks people are doing things in their best interests, then he’s probably relatively forgiving. We just have to see.”

Feb 17th: Vampire Diaries Star Daniel Gillies Reveals Where He’s Headed, and the Elena Scene We Never Saw!

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Season 3, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on Vampire Diaries Star Daniel Gillies Reveals Where He’s Headed, and the Elena Scene We Never Saw!

Gillies has had a lot of epic moments on TVD (including shattering windows with mere coins and surviving four deaths!), but his favorite was a much simpler scene that didn’t make the final cut of a season two episode. “They cut this one moment out and it was my favorite moment,” Gillies tells us. “It was the most beautiful piece of writing. I love scenes when they’re very, very simple.”

So what moment was it? Surprise, surprise: it was a moment between Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Elijah, which he describes as “succinct and pure.” During a scene between the two characters, Elena does something and Elijah just stares at her. “She goes, ‘What? What is it?’ and Elijah says, ‘It’s nothing. You remind me of what I liked about being human.'” I liked it. I just thought it was one of the best things they ever wrote.” Beautful writing, indeed!

Gillies admits he was (and continues to be) shocked by the overwhelming fan response to Elijah, but he’s not complaining. “I don’t get it,” he says. “I feel really blessed. I did not think I would survive beyond two episodes. That’s what he was supposed to live for in the beginning. I don’t get why I’m still around to be honest. I just feel very lucky that the fans seem to like him so much.”

Feb 16th: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Star Daniel Gillies Talks Elijah’s Attraction To Elena And An Originals Spin-Off

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Season 3, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Star Daniel Gillies Talks Elijah’s Attraction To Elena And An Originals Spin-Off

During last week’s “Vampire Diaries,” Mystic Fall’s mother of the year Esther devised a clever scheme to kill her devilish son Klaus: She bound all of the Original siblings together with a spell, so that if one of them were to die, they would all die. But if there’s one Original sibling that’s proven that death is never permanent, it’s Elijah.

As actor Daniel Gillies reminds HuffPost TV, he’s already died — and been resurrected — four times.

In Thursday night’s all-new episode, “All in the Family,” Elijah will ultimately give Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) a dangerous ultimatum where the price is Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) life. If they want to save Elena, then they have to help Elijah stop his mother from going through with her plan. “Elijah can be a decent master of ceremonies when things need to happen,” Gillies told HuffPost TV. “He’s a bit of a DJ at the forthcoming party.”

Feb 16th: ‘Vampire Diaries’: Daniel Gillies sinks teeth into Original vampire Elijah

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Season 3, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on ‘Vampire Diaries’: Daniel Gillies sinks teeth into Original vampire Elijah

NS: How excited were you to return to the “The Vampire Diaries”?

DG: I love it. I love this show and I love being on it, I’ve never had more fun on a set than with these guys. It’s just so great. Although I will say I do love my new show. But that’s a whole different animal. We’re a little more giddy on the set of “The Vampire Diaries” probably because I joined them mid-second season. By that stage it’s sort of a well-oiled machine. I think there’s always a bit of tension in the first season of many shows where it has to get off the ground and it has to become a success. It has to just survive, basically.

Feb 16th: INTERVIEW: Daniel Gillies (Elijah) from The Vampire Diaries

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Season 3, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on INTERVIEW: Daniel Gillies (Elijah) from The Vampire Diaries

Last week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries featured a very interesting development for some of our favorite new Mystic Falls residents, The Originals. Mama Original used Elena’s blood to put a spell on all the siblings, so if one dies, they all die. I think I speak for many when I say that I hope something goes wrong with this spell because I can’t stand the thought of Klaus, Elijah or Rebekah leaving. (I’m sure I will come to love Kol as well. Finn needs to stop being all into his mother. But I digress.) I recently had the chance to chat with Daniel Gillies, who plays Elijah, about the spell, Elijah’s love for Elena and his and Damon’s unlikely semi-friendship. Gillies also had some ideas as to where The Originals could reside besides Mystic Falls, and one of them involves a very interesting choice of attire.

Last week, Elijah drank from the champagne that his mom put a spell on. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say I don’t want the spell to work. How is that going to change things?
Well, I guess it’s going to either destroy us or unify us in some way, at least for a short time. I think we’re going to have to create the unions that we didn’t really have formerly and I think we’re going to have to dispense with any sort of differences temporarily among the siblings if we are going to overcome our mother.

Taking a few minutes to chat with press, Daniel shared what he thinks is the reason behind Elijah’s blood-abstinence, what is really going on with Elijah and Elena in those smoldering scenes, and what else he just brings to the increasingly complex role. Daniel also gives some reflective comments on the Original siblings: Klaus, Finn, Kol and Rebekah, and the relationships that Elijah has with each – and what he really thinks of Stefan and Damon.

As can be seen Daniel was circumspect with the spoilers, but had a lot of fun speculating on what’s next in the world of Mystic Falls and the Originals. He also had a choice clue to share about identity of the resident serial killer currently stalking our heroes from the shadows.
