Wow…we have more from Zap2It‘s interview with Julie Plec. This time Julie discusses that epic monologue by Damon at the end of “The Descent” and will Elena be able to forgive Stefan’s past?
“We just sort of added it in,” Plec says. “Kevin [Williamson] wrote his speech at the end, which was just brilliance in action. It changed everything. It really reinvigorated all of us for that character because Damon is all about how deliciously bad he can be and how epically goodhe can be, and how the two are always at odds with each other.”
Somerhalder has his work cut out for him on Damon’s journey this season. Somerhalder has told us several times that Damon’s more vulnerable scenes take a toll on him. Things are only going to get more difficult for him.
“It’s no secret that having to play emotional Damon makes Ian really uncomfortable as a person, as an actor,” Plec says. “It’s hard, because you have to tap into your own emotional stuff, and now we keep challenging him. We’re going to keep making him dig deeper and deeper.”
