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.

Feb 15th: Vampire Diaries’ Daniel Gillies on Elijah’s ‘Terrifying’ Fate and ‘Hell to Pay’ With Elena

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Season 3, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on Vampire Diaries’ Daniel Gillies on Elijah’s ‘Terrifying’ Fate and ‘Hell to Pay’ With Elena

On The Vampire Diaries last week, witchy Esther set in motion a clever scheme to take down her dastardly son, Klaus: She bound all of the Original siblings together with a spell, so that if one of them were to be taken out, they would all die. This sort of mass annihilation would send panic into the heart of any fan of the CW series (airing Thursdays at 8/7c), but Elijah’s portrayer, Daniel Gillies, tells TVLine that he’s “never concerned” about his job security. “At this stage, I’m a veteran of death,” he quips. “I’ve died four time on this show alone.”

Mind you, that doesn’t mean Elijah is just going to lie down and give up. “Obviously, he’s not going to be terribly happy about” the spell, previews Gillies. “They’re now bonded in potential death. It’s going to be pretty terrifying.”

So much so that, if there’s one thing the usually moral vampire knows, it’s that now “[Esther] needs to be taken out,” continues the actor. Easier said than done, with a sorceress that powerful! But the Michaelson brothers – Elijah, Klaus, Kol and Finn – and sis Rebekah might be able to get the upper hand on Mom if they join forces. “When a collective of people know they could potentially die, it makes them powerful,” explains Gillies.
