Interview With The Vampire Diaries Executive Producer ‘Julie Plec’: Damon Encyclopedia, Klaus’ Biological Father And The Trouble With Compassion
She’s the the backbone of the mythological storytelling; the shaper of love and loss; the the reason behind one of the most exciting shows on TV - I’m talking about The Vampire Diaries‘ Executive Producer Julie Plec. She is no stranger to the supernatural or scary, having co-produced movies Scream 3 and Cursed. Plec has also explored the issues of teen angst and sci-fi powers in TV series Kyle XY. But where her talent shines the most is within the complex interactions, heartfelt (and often bewildering) storylines, and the beauty and bonds of love, family and friendship shown in The CW’s highly coveted TVD.
After Plec’s teasing tweet the other day, hinting at surprises, tragedies, new villains, break-ups, make-ups, romance, scandal, happiness – and maybe some fun – for our team of supernaturally-affected teens in Season 4, we were eager to chat with her at San Diego’s Comic Con. Plec talked about the infamous Damon-Elena flashback scene in the Season 3 Finale, saying that the reason behind the flashbacks is to “learn something new”; it’s not just for fun. She said that what Damon did for Rose and this moment she will remember will go in the “encyclopaedia that is Damon” to file away for contemplation. We asked Plec about the possibility of meeting Klaus’ biological father, and who Elena might lean on for support during her transition. On the topic of Klaus, Plec reassured us that Joseph Morgan would be returning, and Elena becoming a vampire will “change everything for him”. Plec dished more on new characters April and Connor (recently cast Todd Williams), the problem with Elena’s compassion, what the loss of Ric will mean for Damon and Bonnie’s darker magical journey.
