Should THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Continue without Nina Dobrev?

tvd

Nina Dobrev has announced that she is leaving The Vampire Diaries and I for one went into utter shock when I heard this.  I think we all knew that one of the main three actors could leave the show after this season but I without a doubt thought that it would be Paul Wesley.  Out of Elena, Damon and Stefan, Stefan seems like the easiest to remove plus that would open up Candice Accola to move to The Originals. But no, it’s Elena Gilbert leaving and I found myself asking if The Vampire Diaries should even continue without her. [Read more...]

Just when you thought you met all of the Salvatore’s – there is a new one in town, sort of.

Hidden Gems: We Shine the Spotlight on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Candice Accola and CHICACO PD’s Marina Squerciati

Untitled-2

The Oscars airing last night made me think about some of the bad-ass acting we have gotten on television lately. And I’m here to shine the spotlight on a couple of hidden gems. Last week (and this whole season really) of television saw the emergence of two supporting actresses to full fledge acting powerhouses. The two in question here are Candice Accola as Caroline on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and Marina Squerciati as Officer Kim Burgess on CHICAGO PD. Each of these actress showcased some high quality acting chops last week. [Read more...]

Can We Talk About Nina Dobrev?!

By: Kelly Thompson

A recent post on the TheTVAddict about the brilliance of Tatiana Maslany (which is every bit deserving) brought up some thoughts I had while watching Orphan Black. I recently started watching Orphan Black as well and found myself just as mesmerized as Victoria Nell. I too had to pause and remind myself that I was watching one actor play all these different characters (There’s no way Maslany is playing Cosima… she can’t be, right? I’ve convinced myself they don’t even look alike) but I also found myself thinking about another actress that has to play multiple characters. Nina Dobrev.

I’m not taking anything away from Maslany because as I said, she is fantastic and there are many reviewers/bloggers/journalists that rave about how difficult it is to play multiple characters. Yet, they don’t give any recognition to Dobrev which she without a doubt deserves. Well, fellow Addicts, that stops now! [Read more...]

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Spoiler Alert: Ian Somerhalder and EP Caroline Dries Dish on ‘Delena’ and Enzo’s Ghost Vendetta

We knew it was too good to be true – the one and only friend Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had left, Enzo (Michael Malarkey), died. But as we quickly saw, the bonds of death will not hold Enzo for long. He is already making plans to return from the Otherside and will be tapping on his frenemy Damon’s shoulder in order to make his great escape. But just how angry will Damon be with Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) for failing to let him know that Enzo is dead? Well, that will soon be found out in next week’s episode.

In the meantime, during a recent press conference, star Ian Somerhalder and executive producer Caroline Dries talked about the ramifications of Enzo’s death, his ongoing vendetta, what the disintegration of the Otherside means for our heroes both in our world and in the supernatural beyond.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Preview: “Man On Fire” (Twins, Travelers and Torture, Oh My!)

the vampire diaries man on fire

Fans of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES know that the show likes to flirt with the darkness. But this week’s episode goes a bit darker than most. It reveals a dark secret and some even darker motives at play. Fortunately, it allows for our heroes to be heroes and the villains to be villains and everyone gets a chance to play with fire in this episode — some more literally than others. Those Travelers, as we have seen, are quite fond of fire. But this time, it will be someone else who says, “Shall we burn together, you and I?” Fire is employed both literally and metaphysically in this week’s episode “Man On Fire.”

As discovered in last week’s episode, the wall between the Otherside and our world is crumbling and it is causing supernatural spirits to disappear into the void. It is also pulling on Bonnie (Kat Graham), who serves as the anchor and if the Otherside continues to crumble, it could take down Bonnie in the process. [Read more...]
