Season 5 of Vampire Diaries ended with Ian Somerhalder’s Damon and Kat Graham’s Bonnie giving into the white light of oblivion. Generally speaking, “giving into the white light of oblivion” might imply that characters will not be returning anytime soon. The Vampire Diaries panel at Comic-Con made light of the characters’ apparent exit, with a video where the actors ponder whether they’ve been written off or granted a spinoff. READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Vampire Diaries (1-10 of 285)
If there’s one thing that The Vampire Diaries desperately needs, it’s a good doctor (who isn’t a fan of torturing vampires). And considering we haven’t seen Meredith Fell in a while, season six is the perfect time to introduce a new medical expert.
EW has learned exclusively that Hit the Floor‘s Jodi Lyn O’Keefe has been cast as new character Jo, “a tough and accomplished doctor at the university hospital. She demands excellence from her students and has learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession.”
O’Keefe’s casting follows the announcement that Colin Ferguson is joining the show as Tripp, the head of a community militia desperate to protect his town. So perhaps some of Tripp’s victims will be paying Jo a visit? We’ll find out soon enough, with O’Keefe first appearing in the season six premiere. There’s no word yet on how long she’ll stick around.
UPDATE: EW has confirmed that The Client List‘s Marco James will also join TVD in the season six premiere. James will play Liam, an upperclassman at Whitmore College who also happens to be a med student. The Wrap first reported the news.
The Vampire Diaries returns for season six on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
There’s a new man coming to Mystic Falls.
Colin Ferguson is joining the sixth season of the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, EW has confirmed. The Eureka star will play Tripp, head of a community militia “who will do anything to protect his town.”
Ferguson himself coyly hinted about the news on Twitter:
Hmmm…. Seem to have 'tripped' my way into a new role… Mystic Falls, hunh?
This is gonna be fun :)—

Executive producer Julie Plec also teased the role, then confirmed Ferguson had been cast:
Plec added that Tripp will give Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) “a run for her money” when he makes his debut in the sixth season premiere.
The Vampire Diaries returns to the CW Oct. 2.
The bros are getting the whole gang together for Comic-Con. And by the whole gang, we mean everyone from Kevin Bacon, to the guys from Supernatural, to Mike Tyson.
In a press release, Warner Bros. Television group announced plans to pull together 15 different series, including five shows making their debut at the San Diego convention. They’ve previously announced a three-hour event on July 26 which will include the premiere of the anticipated Batman-prequel Gotham and footage from the upcoming pilot for The Flash, but they’re also promising the return of several of their biggest shows.
The O.C.’s Melinda Clarke has signed on guest star in two episodes in the third season of TNT’s Dallas, The Wrap reports.
Clarke will assume the role of Tracy Lawton, a character who was introduced in the 12th season of the original series and was played by Beth Toussaint. In the original series, McKay was introduced in 1988 as a love interest for Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy), and it was later revealed that she was in fact the daughter of Ewing’s rival Carter McKay (George Kennedy).
Since leaving The O.C., Clarke has guest starred on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, HBO’s Entourage, and was a series regular on the recently canceled Nikita, which ran on The CW for four seasons.
Clarke will make her debut in the September 3 episode of Dallas‘s third season, which resumes on August 18.
Season Finale Awards: 'Vampire Diaries' director takes us inside Damon's goodbye and that final shot
The winners of EW.com’s fifth annual reader-voted Season Finale Awards were announced today (see them here), and The Vampire Diaries earned five prizes: Most Rewound Moment, Most Unforgettable Line, and Best Use of Music for Damon’s goodbye to Elena; and Best (Presumed) Death or Exit and Best Final Shot for Damon’s mysterious disappearance with Bonnie.
Episode director Chris Grismer called into Entertainment Weekly Radio to accept Best Final Shot for that fade to white as the Other Side crumbled, and frenemies Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) held hands to accept their unknown fate. In the end, he took a low-tech approach. “We just sort of over-exposed it, just old-school, and used smoke, and then I just had them grab the cameras and shake them,” he says, with a laugh. “The weird thing about it was the actors couldn’t hear each other because we had fans going and it was just pure chaos. So they kinda had to guess when it was their turn to talk, and then we dubbed their voices afterward.”
Damon’s emotional farewell to Elena (Nina Dobrev) had its own challenges. Somerhalder could look at Dobrev for his close-ups — but since Elena wasn’t supposed to be able to see dead Damon, Dobrev had to spend more time acting without Somerhalder in the frame. “To have her hair move [as though Damon was touching it], I had to have a green rod come in in the middle of the scene and move her hair, and she had to just keep in the moment, even though we were throwing all these curveballs at her,” Grismer says. “She did a great job.”
And for those wondering, he believes Somerhalder did improvise the “baby.”

After a traumatic season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, fans were left wondering if they’d seen the last of Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) — and who may have returned from The Other Side as a human.

After Thursday night’s Vampire Diaries finale, we knew Enzo was back from the dead, but will he be sticking around Mystic Falls? The short answer of it all is: Yes!
Julie Plec revealed that not only will Enzo be returning as his vampire bad-boy self, but Michael Malarkey will officially be a Vampire Diaries series regular in season 6. “We have not seen the last of the delicious Michael Malarkey,” Plec said. “He’s a wonderful addition to the team, and he will be officially a series regular next year.” READ FULL STORY
'The Originals': Joseph Morgan on Klaus' greatest threat; plus, a fatherhood edition of 'What Would Klaus Do?'
With every episode of The Originals, Klaus’ list of enemies seems to grow longer. And at this point, he’s got a number of people to worry about (as much as an all-powerful hybrid needs to worry.) There are the witches, who want to kill his unborn child, his father, who’s trying to come back from the dead to kill him, Marcel, who’s readying for battle, and whatever’s going on with that key the humans have … to name a few. But heading into the penultimate episode, Joseph Morgan is most worried about two specific members of the Originals universe.
On the one hand, there’s Mikael, who Morgan identified as “the most terrifying threat,” for Klaus. But in terms of Klaus’ potential for redemption, Morgan is more focused on Klaus’ unborn child. “The emotional investment that Klaus has finally made in his child and the potential for the child to save him, to redeem Klaus is huge, so the witches, Genevieve, particularly, being a threat to his child is pretty worrying as well,” Morgan said.
So basically, Klaus needs to keep his eye on the unborn and the potentially undead. “For Klaus’ person, for his physical form, if Mikael gets his way and is able to get a body and come back somehow, I think Mikael is the biggest threat, but for Klaus’ redemption, for his sanity, for everything that’s good in him, I think that Genevieve at the moment along with Monique is the biggest threat because they take his child and he’ll be going down a pretty dark path, I would imagine.”
And speaking of Klaus’ children, he and Marcel had a great moment last week, in which both affirmed their father-son relationship, and yet, also prepared for a bloody battle. So does Morgan think Klaus will let his feelings get in the way on the battlefield? “[That] is going to be answered on Tuesday,” he said with a chuckle. “He has before let his feelings get in the way at the last minute, [but] he’s also charged at his sister with the white oak stake and only because he was stopped by Elijah did it not happen. I think he tried to stab her a couple of times and was ready to kill her, was ready to end her and then was stopped. I think he’s capable of doing very rash things, which he will deeply regret later, but the potential is there. We’ve seen how much of a monster he can be. He does care for Marcel deeply, Marcel is his adopted son, he raised him and he sired him. There’s a huge love there between those characters, but in the moment, could Klaus do something terrible? Absolutely.”
While we’re talking family, what ever happened to that one member of Klaus’ wolf bloodline that we met? Well, Morgan doesn’t know, but Klaus’ wolf family is a story he’s dying to delve into next season. “That’s a huge untapped resource we have, and I would hope moving into season 2, that we’ll see more of his background, his wolf side. We saw one of his bloodline, and we found this ring that his mother made for his true biological father, so I think the idea of exploring that, certainly for me, is very interesting, because the Klaus we met was very much a vampire. We’ve seen more of the beast in him certainly over the last season, but definitely, we could explore more of that. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we discovered a pack that was descended from his bloodline, so there’s another family of which Klaus is a member, and then you have these two families, and he’s a member of both? I should be pitching this to Julie [Plec]. Season 2, I think we just figured it out!”
So now that we figured that out, we asked Morgan to play a game called What Would Klaus Do: The Fatherhood Edition. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is. Read his answers below: READ FULL STORY
'The Vampire Diaries': Michael Malarkey on Enzo sticking around, the return of a few familiar faces, more death
The Vampire Diaries and death are sort of like two peas in a pod. But last week, viewers witnessed a death unlike any they’d seen before when Damon’s longtime pal, Enzo, decided to essentially frame Stefan for his suicide, if only to ruin the Salvatore brothers’ relationship. But with the other side crumbling, Enzo isn’t exactly gone from Mystic Falls.
For now, Enzo will be sticking around as a very pissed off ghostly presence, ready to enact his revenge on Stefan, Damon, and pretty much everyone. “I kind of view Enzo as a little bit of an anarchist,” Michael Malarkey said. “He doesn’t give a s— about all the stuff that a lot of the other characters care about, so he’s really quick to dismiss things or say, ‘That’s a bunch of crap’ or ‘All this girlfriend bulls— is pointless, let’s focus on real stuff here.’ So, I think there’s an element of him which is mad at the world and doesn’t care, but there’s also [a] very specific reason for him to be upset with, in particular Damon and Stefan.” READ FULL STORY
