'Vampire Diaries': Chris Wood on Justifying Kai's Killer Acts and Outplaying Damon

'Vampire Diaries': Chris Wood on Justifying Kai's Killer Acts and Outplaying Damon

Has Damon met his match The Vampire Diaries? It certainly seems that way.

The charming yet maniacal Kai (Chris Wood), whom viewers were first introduced to a few episodes back in the May 10, 1994 vacuum, wasn't exactly what Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) were hoping for. For one thing, he's a carbon copy of early-Vampire Diaries Damon, with his heated zingers and unaffected nonchalance. And, as it turns out, Kai is a full-blown killer, massacring his entire family — a fact that hampers Damon and Bonnie's decision to go through with his proposal to bring him along to their world.

Wood talks to The Hollywood Reporter about transforming into Kai, being part of a three-person play and whether Kai is ultimately redeemable.
