MTV’s Hollywood Crush had a chance to catch up with TVD EP, Julie Plec. Here’s what Julie had to say about Elena and Caroline new life at college & their dorm room. In the 2nd article Julie talks about when the rest of the gang will discover Stefan’s secret.
Elena and Caroline’s Dorm Room
Elena and Caroline are getting the full college experience when “The Vampire Diaries” returns on October 3—or at least the full TV college experience. The Mystic Falls BFFs will move in together when they matriculate at Whitmore College in season five, which, as we’ve learned through many years of TV-watching, means parties, hot boys and inordinately large dorm rooms.
“Look, we can all joke about it, but in order for a scene to look good, you need a lot of space to shoot in—especially when you’re a show that shoots on long lenses,” executive producer Julie Plec admitted to Hollywood Crush recently. “So yes, our dorm room is a little bigger than the dorm room I had in college.”
But that doesn’t mean it’s not gonna be awesome. “We establish a university that’s old and steeped in tradition and it’s been around for a while, and the room reflects that. It’s got the big arched ceilings and a good, old-world feel to it. So you will laugh, because yes, of course it’s a little bit bigger than it should be, but we’re proud of it.”
Unfortunately, because Silas locked Stefan up in a safe and threw him off a cliff and stole his identity, no one knows Stefan isn’t actually Stefan. Fortunately, executive producer Julie Plec told Hollywood Crush that it won’t be too long before someone comes to his rescue. “I think the unveiling of the Silas secret identity treachery will happen quickly, because we tend not to drag that stuff out too long on ‘The Vampire Diaries,’” Julie promised.
But before that happens, Silas is going to go nuts in Mystic Falls. “It won’t stop him from continuing to exploit the fact that he is Stefan’s doppelganger,” Julie said. “And with Stefan locked at the bottom of the quarry floor for a little while, we’ll see Silas taking full advantage of that.”
