Vampire Diaries Cast Interviews!
With The Vampire Diaries going on a month long hiatus all of us hardcore fans need a little something to hold us over until then - cue cast interviews! Yay! Doing the whole fan-girl thing I came across a collection of interviews where the cast answers fan questions. Check it out…
Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore)
Did you read the Vampire Diaries books before joining the cast?
I hadn’t read them prior to auditioning but once I got the role I found out the show was based on books and so I ran to the store and picked up all the books. The problem is I only had two weeks before we started shooting, so I sat down and just plowed through them and I made it. But yes, I did read the books. I thought it was important to get as much back-story as I could about Stefan.
Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert)
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I would want to be invisible… and fly. I would want to have the choice to just disappear sometimes and do my own thing and then fly to different places around the world because I love traveling.
Ian Somerdale (Damon Salvatore)
What is your personal favorite vampire movie?
One vampire movie that was actually really incredible was Willem Dafoe and Shadow of the Vampire. That was such an interesting weird portrayal … it wasn’t this highly stylized romanticized version of a vampire.
Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes)
What do you think about being compared to Twilight all the time?
I think it’s normal, I mean we both are entertainment surrounded by vampires, and with True Blood as well. I think it’s fun but at the same time I just kinda think of how many doctor shows and lawyer shows there are out there… so it’s vampires. But I also think it’s a compliment, look at what Twilight has become and I’ve seen it and think it’s really fun as well. It’s a great compliment to be compared to that.
To watch all of the interviews, with all of the cast head over here. I just gave you a small taste, each actor gets asked a few questions. Yay!
