Ian Somerhalder & 'The Vampire Diaries' Cast Give Their Characters Advice Heading into Season Seven (JJ Interview)
The town of Mystic Falls is seemingly under new leadership in the upcoming seventh season of The Vampire Diaries, and every character is faced with new challenges.
We asked each actor to give their characters one piece of advice for season seven. Check out what they said:
Ian on Damon: “It’s impossible. You can’t talk sense into Damon Salvatore. He’s 174 years old. He makes awful decisions based on his heart and his own selfishness. You can’t reason with someone like that. I wouldn’t even waste time giving him advice because he wouldn’t listen.”
Candice on Caroline: “If this was the same question at the end of season six, I’d say, ‘Oh, Caroline’s totally got it figured out right now. She’s on the right track. She’s got a great perspective on her life, and what she needs, and who she is.’ And then coming into season seven, I might be like, ‘Oh, girl. We need to have some talks. We need to sit down with a couple glasses of wine.’”
Annie on Lily: “Trust no one. I think she sort of leads with her heart a lot and wants to believe that people have good intentions, and that loyalty is loyalty, and you don’t go back on that. But…I would tell her to run from Mystic Falls (laughs).”
The Vampire Diaries premieres on Thursday, October 8 @ 8PM on The CW!
