Damon and Elena are off again on The Vampire Diaries -- and it's not going to get any better.
"One of the best scenes [last week] was when Damon said, 'I don't want to look at you, I don't want to hear your voice and I definitely don't want to be your friend.' It was just so heartbreaking," said executive producer Caroline Dries at a recent screening.
Paul Wesley is making moves behind-the-camera with his directorial debut on The Vampire Diaries.
It isn't rare for a star on a popular, long-running show to direct down the line, but Wesley marks the first member of The CW drama's core cast to do so. For the 31-year-old actor, directing seemed a natural progression for his career.
Three words to describe The Vampire Diaries session at PaleyFest: ear-piercing screams.
The three main stars of The CW's vampire drama, Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, returned to the PaleyFest stage Saturday evening fielding multiple questions about the series-long love triangle and selfie requests (but mostly the latter) from a crowd of 2,600 at the Dolby Theatre, made up of the show's core demographic (teenage girls and twentysomething women).
The CW has handed out early renewals to five of its biggest hits.
Returning for the 2014-15 broadcast season are veterans Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural as well as rookies The Originals and Reign, the network announced Thursday. Arrow will be back for its third season, Vampire Diaries its sixth and Supernatural will hit season No. 10.
The 31st annual television festival, which takes place March 13-28 at its new home at the Dolby Theatre, will feature evenings honoring the 10th anniversary of the Lost premiere, How I Met Your Mother's swan song,a two-panel event with The Vampire Diaries and The Originals spinoff, as well as the unprecedented fifth straight appearance for Community.
Things between Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) are rockier than ever following Elena's discovery that Damon had been secretly killing off Whitmore family members as part of his sketchy Augustine past, as recently as several months prior when they were happily together. The Dec. 12 fall finale, "Fifty Shades of Grayson" (more on the meaning behind the title later), kicks off with Elena trapped on Dr. Wes Maxfield's (Rick Cosnett) medical slab and learning that Damon's former friend Enzo (Michael Malarkey), whom he betrayed, is actually alive and kicking.
In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter previewing the fall finale, executive producer Caroline Dries discusses Elena's sticky situation, Damon and Elena's shaky future and pairing up Katherine and Stefan.
