Thanks to Jim Halterman for snagging this interview with Julie Plec in preparation for next week’s episode. They discuss Tyler’s transformation, a new character heading to Mystic Falls and here she sheds some light on Klaus.
JH: Everybody has been buzzing about casting for still-unseen-but-much-talked-about Klaus. Anything to share?
JP: Nothing to share but it’s been fun reading everyone’s casting suggestions. I think Kevin and I would feel very excited if we could discover a fresh, new face but we haven’t even started yet so it will be interesting to see how that plays out.
JH: Do we know when Klaus will finally appear on the show?
JP: No, no. The mystery of when we are going to meet him for the first time will be on-going. I think on the casting side it said a specific episode but that was just procedural. That has nothing to do with reality.
