The Vampire Diaries Sneak Peek: Alaric Toasts His Wedding Day (with Bonus Full-Moon-Induced Werewolf Sass)

Originally posted 05/07/2015 11:50AM

Not even his own wedding day keeps Alaric safe from snark.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Thursday's episode of The Vampire Diaries, Matt (Zach Roerig) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) toast Alaric's (Matt Davis) upcoming nuptials to Jo (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), expressing incredulity over the fact that he'd limit himself to just one lady. Then again, as Tyler jokes, women aren't exactly "throwing themselves at an occult studies professor."

(Says you, Tyler.)

Vampire Diaries Creator on the 'Beautiful Shock' and 'Grief' Surrounding Nina Dobrev's Exit

Originally posted 05/04/2015 12:00PM

After Nina Dobrev announced she would be leaving The Vampire Diaries once her six-season contract was up, the show's creator, Julie Plec, had the same knee-jerk reaction to the news as the rest of us: denial.

"Nina had said earlier this year that she wanted to be done, and we spent a little time trying to talk her out of it," said Plec on a KCRW podcast. "[We'd say,] 'Oh, look at all these great plans of how you can stay!' "

However, said Plec, Dobrev "was just looking forward to moving on with no hard feelings and no drama. … She finally was like, 'No, I signed up for six years. I've done my six years. I'm ready to move on and spread my wings."

The Originals' Joseph Morgan on Klaus's 'Crazy and Irrational' Return and Why He's 'Proud' of the Show's Passionate Fandom

Originally posted 04/02/2015 01:45PM

There's nothing like a baby daughter to soften the heart of a vampire-werewolf hybrid who's more than 1,000 years old – however, The Originals star Joseph Morgan wants you to know that Klaus will soon be rediscovering his "villainous" side.

When the Vampire Diaries spin-off returns from a brief hiatus on Monday, the threat of Dahlia (Claudia Black) looms large as our heroes deal with the more immediate danger of Eva Sinclair (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and whether they can truly trust Freya (Riley Voelkel).

In an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, Morgan, 33, reveals what's next for Klaus, what's going to happen with that gold dagger and whether another Originals/TVD crossover is in the works – and what he'd like to see happen if and when it does. Morgan also addresses the passionate fans of one massively shipped couple (hint: Klaroline) whose supporters may be the most vocal and opinionated in the Vampire Diaries universe.

Vampire Diaries: Ian Somerhalder on Being a First-Time Director, the Ladies in Damon's Life

Originally posted 03/12/2015 03:30PM

After six years starring as Damon on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder moved behind the camera for the very first time to direct Thursday's episode.

Having just learned that his mother may have actually been alive (or, more accurately, undead) for the past 100-plus years, Damon enters "The Downward Spiral" with a whole new set of abandonment issues.

In an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, the actor, 36, opens up about what it was like to direct for the very first time (which, funnily enough, segued into musings about the inevitable march of time), what's coming up for Delena (and even Bamon) and his ideal ending for The Vampire Diaries.
