Does the love triangle doom any other possible relationships in the show?
"No it doesn't, even the love triangle is more like a square, because naughty Katherine is back. They're going to try and integrate the other relationships this season. That way they won't just be popping in on Caroline and Matt."
When you were casting Elena, why didn't you want her to be like the books?
"When Kevin and I decided to do the show we thought, you can't dramatize this girl the way she is in the books. Elena is the heart and soul, center heroine of the show. She’s torn between the soulful one and the devil one and you can lose your audience with a girl like in the books. Nina has these big beautiful brown eyes and just let emotions pour out of her."
"Stefan and Elena didn't have anyone to talk too. Elena was spiritually alone and so the journal was a way of expression, but the minute they fell in love is why they don't need to write anything down just because they're in love."
Will Damon and Alaric be the dynamic duo in season 2?
"Alaric has every reason to hate Damon." We love writing scenes for them. They really like them as a couple. We’ll see a lot more of them.
The fog we might not see again and it's hard for a crow to gawk on cue.
"Damon is the greatest villain, he's a hero in villains clothing." Ian said at the wrap party, "I hated doing that in the end. That’s so hard for me to dig down that deep and be vulnerable and open to express myself. It’s not my comfort zone." Julie continued and said, "he’s a leader and a champion. He loves his persona as the cool guy. It was good because you believed it."
Mike Trevino didn't have much to do in season 1, all of the cast are so afraid, because we told them that if you party too much you can die, the cast would be scared to call and ask questions. Tyler Lockwood is crucial to the storyline mythology. "They would delicately layer it in just to get the audience aware of what his destiny is and who he's going to be. Season 2 is going to be big time. Mrs. Lockwood has to be the interim mayor." Tyler didn't have anyone and Matt isn't going to be aware of anything anytime soon.So him and Jeremy depending on what happens can develop a friendship.
If you were a vampire who would you turn?
"She would turn Kevin for eternity, so he'd be stuck with her."
Why does Stefan lie to Elena all the time?
Is Damon in a permanent change?
"Stefan’s dark side and Damon’s good side will always haunt him."
"It's definitely going to be addressed, but because they have blood pumping. They are more humanistic not like a dead body walking. It’s for simplicity not get over the top and break out of the traditional. So they can't necessarily sense each other."
Anna coming back?
"Anna is no longer apart of Vampire Diaries. The crew made save Anna t-shirts and wore them on set. Malese Jow was actually supposed to be gone after episode 13. They loved the mother daughter and Jeremy relationships. They brought them back and gave them the rest of the season. She existed to give Jeremy his journey, but who knows we might see 1983 with Anna and Katherine in Chicago!""All the cast are so talented..maybe it'll be ways to weave in their talent."
"Music is picked after..she's a big fan of music being that extra layer of dialogue. It takes your story to a new level. Soundtrack in October!! Moment songs that hit so hard, she wants to make sure they're on the album."
"The Vampire Diaries was a possible feature at first."
"There is a possibility of Meredith being on the show!"
The werewolf and vampire relationship will be complicated. They don't want to be Twilight. It's tough because you don't want to be similar.
"Stefan and Matt's friendship are ultimately going to be true blues down the road but they don't want to force it. It was a big part of the books."
Have you checked out any fansites etc?
Vampire-Diaries.net is sick..awesome site!!!
They made the decision about Vicki from the beginning..they debated about it though.
"They do a lot of making shit up in the moment!"
"They try to talk out mythology, relationships, etc for the season."
"I can't and will not answer the question if Isobel will come back or is Uncle John dead."
"99.9% of things written on the page, ends up on the screen." It's not a lot of time to improvise.
"It's possible Bonnie isn't the only witch in town!"
