Check out this clip from Paul Wesley’s upcoming movie Amira & Sam. The movie will be released January 30th at select theater locations and can be pre-ordered on iTunes as well.
Paul Wesley has made the rounds talking about tonight’s highly anticipated midseason return, “Woke Up with a Monster” directed by Paul, himself. Check these out, and we’ll add more as the become available.
Via Yahoo TV on Chris Wood’s character Kai:
While he loves working with Michael Malarkey, who plays Enzo, Wesley’s favorite parts of the episode are the storylines involving Caroline and her mother and Kai (Chris Wood) holding Elena captive. “[Wood]’s work in my episode is pretty hilarious. He would surprise me and do things that even I didn’t think of, and I would use those takes in my cut,” Wesley says with a laugh. “The best actors bring their own little spin to things. It’s always intimidating joining a Season 6 show, being relatively new. Having the sort of confidence to just start improvising and doing your own thing is really pretty ballsy. It’s either gonna work or fail, but it really works in his favor.”
So much, in fact, that Wesley says, “The notes that I got back when I submitted my episode were, ‘We love Kai.’ Like literally, everyone loves Kai because he’s so likable despite the fact that he’s completely sinister. That was what was so exciting about the way it was written — you kinda like him, even though he’s doing all these awful things, which makes it really interesting. Otherwise, it would just be really boring.”
Via THR, more about Kai and the last 15 minutes of the episode:
What can you preview about the other storylines?
Kai — Chris Wood — has a lot of stuff with Elena. The interactions are pretty amazing. Caroline has a lot to do in my episode, and Candice Accola is dealing with some things with her mom. Those were the two storylines that are the most pivotal in episode, and the most compelling and effective. And if people can get through the episode, then they’re really in for a great treat at the end. The last 10-15 minutes, I want to make sure people watch it. There’s not a lot I can tease, but I really want to make sure people stay with it; make sure you watch it live.
Via TVLine on losing series regular, Steven R. McQueen:
TVLINE | Lastly, how do you feel about losing Jeremy — and Steven R. McQueen as a series regular — next year?
It’s weird. We’ve gone through this before, but certainly not in Season 6. I love Steven. He’s such a sweet and nice and kind kid. Of course it’s sad, you know, but he’s a young actor, we’re in Season 6 and I’m excited to see what he does next.
People caught up with Paul Wesley, he talked directing tomorrow night’s episode and here’s some Stelena scoop for ya! Also, to commemorate tomorrow night’s return of The Vampire Diaries, check out the awesome new promotional photo shared via @cwtvd.
As a couple, are Stefan and Elena dead and gone forever? Or is there hope for Stelena yet?
I don’t think it’s out of the question. I think it’s contingent upon the writing – writers are really magicians. They can come up with anything, and it just depends on what the audience wants. Writers can make it seem like Caroline and Stefan are the end game, and suddenly switch it on a dime and then everyone is rooting for Stefan and Elena. You never know on this show, but I think that’s what keeps it fresh and exciting. If you do have a preconceived notion of what’s going to happen next, it just becomes unreliably boring, and so I don’t think you could ever rule anything out.
