Alloy Entertainment had a chance to chat with Steven R. McQueen about Jeremy’s Farewell episode Thursday night titled “Stay”.
Alloy Entertainment: As for your time on TVD, looking back on six incredible seasons, what would you say was Jeremy’s lowest point and his most triumphant moment?
Steven R. McQueen: That’s a good question. That a very good question. His lowest point would be when Bonnie disappeared, you know? At the beginning of the season, I talked to Julie and was like, ‘Look, I want to let [Jeremy] go. I wanna let his hair grow and have him go crazy.’ Jeremy’s lost a lot of people — starting with parents — and he’s gone through a lot. But to have found strength and hope and have that ripped from him? That definitely was a new low for him. As for his proudest moment, I would say it’s when they brought Bonnie back from the Other Side in Season 5. He got his love back, and even though she got taken away again, he was truly happy.
Alloy Entertainment: Speaking of happiness, any time a character on TVD experiences an ounce of joy, something terrible usually occurs to balance things out. Will Jer Bear encounter any danger on his way out?
Steven R. McQueen: [Laughs.] I don’t know. I can’t tell you that — you’re going to have to tune in to find out.
