Vampire Diaries Star Discusses Lockwood Curse
If you’re wondering what to expect on this season of The Vampire Diaries then maybe this interview with Michael Trevino will help. He totally dished on his character Tyler and the Lockwood curse (not everything is about Katherine). Check it out:
Throughout season one, Tyler was a hot-tempered human. How excited are you to be a supernatural character?
There’s going to be more storylines, and it’ll show a different side of Tyler. Like you said, all of season one it showed how hot-headed he was, snapping at everybody. Not only that, but for me to be get into the supernatural element and find out the lineage of these werewolves and such, it’s gonna be, not a hard task, but something to look forward to. There wasn’t much of Tyler going on in season one, so they want to throw all of these projects at me now for the new season. I’m ready for it!
Do you have to go though any makeup or prosthetics for the transformation?
I haven’t. All I’ve done so far is some green screen work. We might actually be doing some CGI, so we’re testing some things out right. No word yet on actually prosthetics on my face.
Do you have anything in common with Tyler?
He’s got a temper and I think everybody has a temper from time to time. The only thing right off the bat is I’m very athletic and I did play a lot of varsity sports in high school...It is fun to play, though. I can explore that inner rage that I posses. Sometimes when people get angry, we want to scream at the top of our lungs. When I go to work, I get to fight Steve McQueen's character, and I get to beat him up and take out my aggression on him, so I guess it works out [Laughs].
What can we look forward to this season?
We’re filming episode three right now, and I can tell you that there is a lot of Lockwood going around. We’re seeing the day-to-day of Tyler, and a lot of scenes take place in my house now. That didn’t happen in season one. I don’t think we got to know Tyler as whole, just an angry, bully of a kid in season one. Now, we’ll be able to see Tyler when he’s calm and not trying to pick a fight with somebody. Episode three is a big episode. There’s something really important that Tyler realizes and there’s a big revelation for Tyler.
