Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev
Although The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley has wanted to direct an episode for a very long time, he says it took him three seasons to summon the courage to ask.
"I decided I wanted to direct when I saw my first Stanley Kubrick film, so that was a very long time ago, but I knew I wanted to direct an episode of The Vampire Diaries from the minute I got one of the lead roles," Wesley tells TVGuide.com. "I just also knew it was presumptuous to ask any sooner than Season 4, so I asked at the beginning of Season 4 and I got to do it in Season 5."

Please share something Game of Thrones-related. — Rosie
HBO has already foreshadowed the royal wedding between King Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell this season, but fear not: These nuptials will be far more civilized than last year's traumatic Red Wedding. Still, there will be barbs thrown thanks to those quarrelsome Lannisters. In particular, Cersei doesn't respect the arranged marriage — or her new queen — and will make quick work of publicly undermining her authority.

Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley
Those who attended Saturday's Vampire Diaries panel at PaleyFest may now be deaf — fans of Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev definitely made themselves heard. Unfortunately, that also meant that the cast and executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries could hardly get a word in edgewise. Here are the five mini teases they were able to share in between screams:
The Originals' Rebekah and Klaus are about to go through living Hell.
At the end of the last episode, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) had been taken by the new band of witches, dead set on exacting their revenge. From the first minute of Tuesday's episode (8/7c, The CW), the two are in dire circumstances, separated, and being tortured. What unravels is not for the faint of heart.

What's the state of Phillip and Elizabeth's marriage when The Americans returns? — June
Well, I may forgo watching the premiere with my parents since it features a scene that shows some pretty intense sexual wrestling between Phillip and Elizabeth. In other words, they're doing OK. "They're ready to be married," executive producer Joel Fields tells me. "What they're going to discover is having been fake-married for a long time, real marriage is not an easy thing. When you have two kids, there's family to contend with. Add to that their work is life-and-death and the future of mankind hangs in the balance, there's a little bit of pressure for them."

Candice Accola and Paul Wesley
Are The Vampire Diaries Caroline and Tyler over for good? And is there even hope for a friendship?
Although Tyler (Michael Trevino) was the one to walk away from the relationship, Caroline (Candice Accola) committed the ultimate act of betrayal by sleeping with his mortal enemy, Klaus (Joseph Morgan). With the cat out of the bag, and Tyler sure that he wants nothing to do with her, Caroline walked into this episode's Bitter Ball and shredded remnants of both men.

Which of Elena's The Vampire Diaries kills made Nina Dobrev feel like a bad ass? Whose script does Kat Graham have framed? What moment from Season 2 does Candice Accola call epic? The stars of the CW drama are sharing these answers and more.
Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder
Death, love, heartbreak, flashbacks, body switches, resurrections — a lot has happened in 100 episodes of The Vampire Diaries.
When the CW series premiered in September 2009, viewers were introduced to protagonist Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), a journal-writing high school teen who had just lost her parents. Soon she fell for Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), who she thought was the brooding new guy in school. In reality, he was a century-old vampire captivated by her, a girl who looked exactly like his one-time love, Katherine Pierce (Dobrev), who is also a vampire. Stefan had also just returned from his hometown of Mystic Falls where he reunited with his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) after spending decades away.
