Zap2It caught up with EP, Julie Plec to chat The Vampire Diaries Season 6. She sheds some light on where we will find Matt & Jeremy when the show returns, plus more info on new character, Tripp.
In light of all the new casting additions for “The Vampire Diaries” Season 6, Zap2it went straight to the “TVD” mastermind herself, executive producer Julie Plec, to get all the details on one very important new character: Tripp, played by ‘Eureka’ star Colin Ferguson. Spoiler alert: His presence means big things are coming for Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig).
So what did Plec have to say about this new character?“Matt Donovan’s never really had a real father figure on the show and we’ve had this basic idea of really wanting a man in Mystic Falls that Matt can look up to,” Plec tells Zap2it. “Now that all the supernatural creatures are stuck outside of Mystic Falls, who are these people that are still living there? This man is running the community protection services, and he’s just trying to teach these young, 18-, 19-, 20-year old guys how they can make something of themselves. It’s nice to see Matt having somebody he can bond with and connect to as he’s kind of the last man standing in a weird way in Mystic Falls.”
