Todd Willims has joined the cast of The Vampire Diaries and will be playing Connor, a vampire hunter.
Yes, fans went bonkers tonight as the cast of The Vampire Diaries took to the stage at this year’s Paleyfest. In attendance: Kat Graham. Matt Davis, Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Julie Plec, Paul Wesley and Candace Accola. The attendees got to see the 1912 episode before the Q&A. We will not divulge the details of the episode as to not spoil anything for you, because you usually yell at us for it.
After seeing the cast at various events, you know that this cast is very fun to watch. They like to joke around with one another, with their fans and at each others expense. Throughout the Q&A portion of the show, while we did learn some interesting things about the remainder of the show’s season, we got to see this whole cast take the reins and made it a fun event for all.
Some of the interesting bits of info we learned:
*Will Katherine return to Mystic Falls? Katherine is no fool, she knows how evade Klaus and will not return to Mystic falls anytime soon as long as he is there.
*Will we see clan Original again? We will, indeed, see the Originals again and Mama Original will still try to make her plan to kill her offspring happen.
*Will Bonnie ever find love? Bonnie will find love with someone that will not die or be summoned off. We just do not know when this will happen.Kat Graham thanked the fans for the insistence that her character find love and even for shipping her character with everyone.
*Will everyone one survive the season, well Julie Plec does not know.
*Will we learn more about Elena’s parent’s death? Well, they have been talking about creating a series of flashbacks of Elena’s life before vampires came into her life and that is how we will meet her parents.
*Regarding Damon and Stefan’s relationship, will it ever mend? Throughout the season, we have seen both characters on their own specific journeys, but they have becomes each others heroes. One of the core story lines of the show is that of relationship between the brothers and it is, in it’s own way, an epic romance. Paul Wesley notes that there is a camaraderie between the brothers due to their mutual affection for Elena.
*Will Stefan continue to evolve as a character? Yes, he will reach a happy medium between the Stefan we first met and the Stefan we’ve come to know.Paul Wesley admitted that he has had a lot fun with the “Bad” Stefan and wondered why all of the sudden he has kind of packed off of that.
*Will Elena choose Damon or Stefan this season? At the end of the season Elena will have to ask herself who she cares for. Julie Plec stated that the storyline will come to a head at the end of the season. Nina had joked that it was time that the Vampire Diaries went off to Italy so she could meet some new boys and Paul and Ian chimed in that she could meet some other Salvatores (in Italian accents).
*Regarding the picture we saw of Damon and Rebekah? Damon does something crappy towards Rebekah and she lashes out against him, Originals style.
*Regarding Klaus and Caroline? Candace Accola was surprised at how fans love this pairing and wonders if everyone forgot that Klaus is a killer. There was no concrete answer about the pairing.
*Regarding Elijah and Elena? Nina stated that the character share a lot in their thought processes, such as not wanting to kill anyone and have an obvious chemistry.
*Regarding Alaric and his new love interest, initially Matt Davis was excited about the idea of his character having a love interest, but when he found out that it was going to be Paul’s wife… he started to freak out.
*At one point, Ian Somerhalder joked that no one watched the show and the audience booed. So, Candace told him to take his shirt off to make it up to the audience. So, he started with his belt… but then realized that it was his shirt and that ended. LOL!
*Early on, everyone was joking about Matt Davis’ fan fiction… which goes beyond the normal everyday fanfics and into some dark, twisted and smutty tales. When anyone tried to talk about it, they just shook their heads. But, Matt mentioned that his latest muse is Tyler.
* A fan asked Julie Plec about Elena possibly becoming a vampire, as she did very early on in the book series, and she replied, “We’ll see.”
