Malese Jow Talks with Hollywood Crush about Auditioning for Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder, and More!!
Via Hollywood Crush
The challenge of playing someone who is hundreds of years old is not lost on Malese, who said the concept is a little difficult to grasp. "There's so much wisdom that comes with so many years of being alive. It was definitely hard because I'm just this 19-year-old girl. But I was born an old soul, so I think that helps a lot. I think that carried Anna along and they really liked where Anna was going. So I guess I did a good job with that!"
She also got a little guidance on playing a vampire from her costar, Ian Somerhalder. When they had to grab each other's necks in a fight scene, "he said, 'Go for it, because you're supposed to be so strong. So squeeze my neck, hold your arm tight,' and it looked so real," Malese said. "It actually looked like we were having a little battle royale. It turned out great. He's been very helpful."
