So congrats to the cast and crew of the most awesome show on television!
Wetpaint Exclusive from Paul Wesley:
“There’s a big werewolf aspect coming to the show, which I think is going to be a really big deal. They’re bringing in supporting characters. There are a lot of sort of supporting cast coming in and guest stars that are going to be pretty pivotal.”
Among the new faces will be an actor cast as Klaus, the as-yet-unseen mysterious, malevolent manipulator who emerged as the central villain of author L.J. Smith’s novel series that inspired the show. “We don’t know who’s going to be playing Klaus, but that’s going to be a huge thing,” says Wesley. “He’s going to be the big, evil bad guy ,and we’re all really, really interested to see who they’re going to cast because we think it’s going to be a pretty big deal.”

More from Ian Somerhalder Interview With Hollywood Crush:
He’s in major protection mode right now, and he’ll do anything for that little Elena.” Swoon.
That apparently includes rescuing Stefan (Paul Wesley) from the tomb. While the old Damon would have totally taken advantage of having Elena to himself, the new Damon isn’t putting his needs first.
“It would seem as though Stefan in this cave away from Elena stuck with Katherine is exactly where he’d want him to be, but he wants to get his brother out of there. I can’t imagine being stuck in there with her,” Ian said. “He needs him. He needs his brother. There are some elements coming to town that are highly problematic to them and that pose a serious danger to everything that Damon loves, and it’s a tough time for him.”

Zap2It Interview (Video) With Ian, Michael and Candice:
“Last year, Tyler would show up, get into a fight, and then leave for a few episodes,” Trevino says. While we’re sure those choreographed brawl scenes had their merits, this season, he gets to stretch the limits of his talent and training as an actor.
In fact, the transformation was Trevino’s most challenging experience as an actor. “By far,” he says. “In all the TV stuff that I’ve done, guest stars and recurring, the two days of shooting the transformation scene by far was the hardest, most challenging I’ve ever done.”

Candice Accola Interview with Jim Halterman:
JH: As an actor, you’re getting to really dive into Caroline this season. She’s really so much more than just the bitchy girl after all, right?
CA: That’s the exciting part when a show has the opportunity to go into multiple seasons and, as an actor, you get to ride along on a journey with your character. It’s been a very exciting season so far. The trials and tribulations that Caroline has had to endure has been a wonderful experience as an actor to learn from, as well. It’s been a very meaty season for Caroline.

Candice Accola Inteview with Entertainment Weekly:
Where will Tyler and Caroline’s friendship go post-transformation?
The biggest thing to remember is that Caroline has been lying to Tyler. So even though there has been a really wonderful friendship that’s grown, it’s based off of lies to protect him and those around him. He thinks that she’s the only vampire town. He doesn’t know that werewolves can kill vampires. There are lot of things that she’s kept in the dark from him, and secrets don’t stay secrets in Mystic Falls very long. When that comes out, that’s going to affect their relationship, for sure.
