If you've ever read one of Price Peterson's hilarious 'Vampire Diaries' recaps, then you know how he feels about Elena Gilbert. From her seemingly high school drop-out status, to her perpetual frown, and her hatred of fun, Price never lets an episode go by without giving this heroine a dig. Following up his Julie Plec interview, Price finally asks Nina some of his burning questions. Click here to read the interview.
I'm a little harsh on Elena in my recaps. For the most part she's pretty self-assured, but then she goes and makes some pretty questionable decisions sometimes. Do you ever read the script and go, like, "Seriously, Elena?"
Yeah, I do. I'm very much an audience member as well as a cast member. I watch and read the show very critically and sometimes Elena does—I mean she's a strong woman and she's very courageous—but sometimes she makes some very impulsive decisions. Ultimately she's making those decisions for a reason. And I know and trust that the writers have an ultimate path that they want her to go through, a journey that they want her to experience. So there's a reason behind every little line and detail.
