Throughout The Vampire Diaries' run, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) has been on his own, in love, "the ripper" and brokenhearted. But looking back, Stefan is always at his best when he's single. Don't get us wrong — this isn't about why Elena (Nina Dobrev) should be with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) instead of Stefan, but rather why as a character Stefan has always been the most appealing, likable and downright sexy when alone. And if Thursday's episode wasn't enough proof (hello, doing push-ups in the woods!), here are four reasons why we prefer him that way:
Charlie Bewley, Camille Guaty
Two new faces are coming to Mystic Falls.
Camille Guaty and Charlie Bewley will guest-star in at least two episodes of The Vampire Diaries, TVGuide.com has learned.
Guaty, whose credits include Prison Break and Las Vegas, will play...
Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder
Who does The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev think Elena really wants to shag?
While on the set of the CW series, TVGuide.com asked Dobrev and her co-stars Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, Steven McQueen and Joseph Morgan who they'd "shag, marry or stake" given several options. While some answers are obvious (everyone wants to marry Matt!), others are more surprising — and hilarious
Who's the sexiest Vampire Diaries star?
Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies
The Vampire Diaries is flashing back to the 12th century and star Joseph Morgan says that viewers should pay close attention.
On Thursday's episode, Klaus delves deeper into the new mysterious bad guy in town, Connor (Todd Williams), and in the process reveals a past (and eerily similar) encounter he had with a very powerful group of vampire hunters.
The Vampire Diaries' oldest set of siblings is going to experience more strife than ever before.
In one of the final scenes from this season's premiere, a distraught Rebekah (Claire Holt) confronted her brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) for choosing to save Caroline (Candice Accola) instead of her. When she further retaliated by smashing Klaus' blood bags, he threw her to the ground and said they were done. According to Morgan, that intense argument was only the beginning.
The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere left off with an explosive ending — literally — leaving us with quite a few questions heading into next week's episode.
With the council gone (that was quick!), how soon before the Mystic Falls gang is fighting their next major enemy, vampire hunter Connor (Todd Williams)? Will Bonnie (Kat Graham) recover from causing the demise, yet again, of her Grams (Jasmine Guy)? And what's the fallout from that heart-wrenching scene between Original siblings Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt)? Find out the answers to these questions and more below in our interview with executive producer Julie Plec.
Michael Trevino and Candice Accola
How will The Vampire Diaries' Caroline react when she learns that Tyler isn't really dead, but Klaus has taken over his body? Not very well.
"She does figure out Klaus has played the switcheroo gag on her and she's not happy," Candice Accola told TVGuide.com of her character during our recent visit to the set. "But the bright side is Tyler's not gone ... her love isn't gone."
But don't get too excited, Forwood fans: The couple's journey won't be all rainbows and butterflies — especially when Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), a girl who helped Tyler (Michael Trevino) rid his sire bond to Klaus (Joseph Morgan), comes strolling into town.
"They have to face up to reality [and] it's not going to be easy and it's not going to be pretty," Accola said.
One moment fans can look forward too? Plenty of sexy time between the blonde vamp and the hot hybrid. "That was one way to just kill the excitement of summer vacation," Accola joked.
Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley
"I'm human — at least I was."
These are Elena Gilbert's fateful words in the brand-new cold open for The Vampire Diaries.
