Comic-Con 2011: Vampire Diaries

Yeah, yeah, yeah…I’m a guy so I’m not supposed to like the CW’s Vampire Diaries.  Go ahead.  I heard it all before.  So with that out of the way, it is with great pleasure that I got the opportunity to cover CW’s Vampire Diaries in Ballroom 20 at Saturday’s 2011 Comic-Con festivities.  In attendance on the panel were none other than Candice Accola, Paul Wesley, Kevin Williamson, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Julie Plec.  And before I go any farther, there’s one thing I have to confess…I’m TEAM DAMON!  Wow!  It feels good to get that off of my chest.

So anyway, the following is a quick summary of everything that went down in the 45-minute panel…

To begin the panel, an exclusive Season 2 Comic-Con 2011 highlight reel was shown to the screaming audience.

The day of the panel, July 23rd, just so happened to be Paul’s birthday.

The panel talked a little bit about the character of Stefan and his dark place he will be in during Season 3.

They spent some time joking around with Nina and her dual roles.

There were also some joking moments when they talked about the characters of Caroline and Tyler and if they hooked up how they would have puppies.

The moderators asked the actors what roles they would want to play.  There were some entertaining answers.  Candice was the only one that responded that she was perfectly happy with her Caroline character.

A female audience member asked Paul for his name sign.  He got embarrassed.  He eventually got up in front of the screaming audience and personally delivered it to the lucky fan.

The Vampire Diaries is the most popular US show in Brazil.  I just thought you should know that!

And now…drum roll please…enjoy the following select pictures that I was able to capture at the 2011 Vampire Diaries Comic-Con panel.
