The Vampire Diaries’ 8×03: “You Decided I Was Worth Saving” airs this upcoming Friday, November 4th on The CW. Here’s the official description;

BONNIE’S CHOICE — As Enzo (Michael Malarkey) continues to fight the control over him, Bonnie (Kat Graham) finds herself at the center of a deadly game and forced to make a heart wrenching decision involving two of the most important people in her life. At the Armory, Alaric (Matt Davis) researches a mysterious artifact that he hopes will help in their fight to get Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo back. Finally, Damon’s downward spiral leads him to Tyler Lockwood (guest star Michael Trevino) who attempts to talk some sense into him before it’s too late. Paul Wesley and Candice King also star.

With The Vampire Diaries’s eighth season set to be its last, actress Kat Graham—who’s been playing a young witch named Bonnie since 2009—spent this past year preparing for her graduation from the hit Y.A. series. Outside of the show’s busy schedule, Graham juggled a multitude of exciting new projects—including a starring role in 2017’s mega-budget Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me and a new album that she collaborated on with Prince. Yes, that Prince.

As if that weren’t enough, Graham was also named an International Goodwill Ambassador for the aid organization Empower 54 after being introduced to its founder, Princess Modupe Ozolua of Nigeria.

“I felt that I was on way more red carpets than missions,” says Graham about her impetus to give back. “I took a look at what was happening in the world, and I didn’t feel like I was contributing enough.”

The 27-year-old spent three years working on the cause of refugees in the Middle East and Central America with the UN Refugee Agency before meeting Princess Modupe and shifting her humanitarian focus to align with Empower54. Graham now dedicates her time to helping elevate the organization’s profile, in addition to raising awareness for the plight of the millions of African civilians suffering at the hands of Boko Haram, one of the world’s deadliest terrorist organizations. Empower54 actively and directly provides rehabilitation through health and education programs to the malnourished children, displaced families, and refugees affected by this violence.

“Modupe is literally on the ground, rescuing men women and children from villages that have been devastated by Boko Haram,” says Graham. “I need to be doing that. I don’t want to be alone at 80 years old, dripping in diamonds—having never helped anyone. That’s not my path. That’s not what I care about. That’s not what excites me.”

The Vampire Diaries’ 8×02: “Today Will Be Different” airs tonight on The CW and executive producer Julie Plec previews the episode;

With one season left in The Vampire Diaries’ run, decided it was time to start collecting everyone’s final diary entries. Every week during the final season, EW is asking those involved with the show to look back on one of their favorite moments from the series. So grab your tissues and join us on this trip down a vampire-filled memory lane.

Co-creator Kevin Williamson kicked us off by talking about the season 1 finale, and for week two, we’re sticking with season 1 by chatting with Kayla Ewell, best known as Vicki Donovan…

Season 1, episode 5, there’s an episode called “Lost Girls” and my character, Vicki Donovan, is dancing with Ian Somerhalder and we are both high on blood and don’t have a lot of clothing on. Especially for me at that time, I think I was 23 years old, and Ian had just come hot off of Lost, it was the sexiest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life, especially on set. What girl wouldn’t want to dance with Ian Somerhalder half-clothed and having fun? It was the best time ever and I know he’s also come out saying that he loved it and it was a memory that I’ll never forget.

They didn’t tell us the music or anything but they did play music as we were dancing. I remember I was like, “What kind of dancing are we doing?” They were like, “Just go ahead and do what you want to do.” Just to feel that free and that sexy and have so much fun together, it was really great, and then the best part about the whole scene is then it smash-cuts to coming down off the high of the blood and now we’re slow dancing. It was just so well done. Even to this day I still love that experience.

And then at the very end, right before commercial break, he snaps my neck. Boom, down. Then you come back to know I come back from that. The shock factor of this show is something that has kept the audience compelled for so many years. You just never know what’s going to happen and who’s going to come back and who’s going to die. They’ve done such a good job of keeping actors and the audience on our feet all the time.

I think we did all of those scenes in a day. It was toward the beginning of the entire show, so everyone was still getting into the rhythm of everything, but I believe it took about a day to do the entire progression.

There’s some jobs that take a little piece of your heart and this one definitely took a big chunk of mine and I think it will always have a big chunk of my heart. There are parts you love and there are parts you like, and this was definitely one I absolutely loved. I think Vicki Donovan was such a lost character and a lot of people, myself included, can really relate to that — feeling lost and trying to figure out life. She was such a fun character to play.

Once that death was decided, they did such an honor to me to write such a wonderful story line up until that. Everyone deserves this amazing arc right before they die and not everyone gets that. They definitely treated me well.

Also I felt this weight of okay, whatever I do and whatever we all decide ends up being the way that people morph forever. It was this idea that whatever happens is what every character is going to go through [when they transition]. We all worked really hard to make sure that it went as planned. You can’t mess that up. No pressure, Kayla. But you can’t mess that up because it’s going to be that way for everyone.

But I did think that it was a really cool experience because it left this legacy that is really fun to be able to look back on. Some of the absolute best memories of my entire acting career have been on that show and not only because of the writing and the great characters but because of the people as well. If you can have that family environment, it changes the work and the characters. We all work together and have this common goal to create this amazing, epic show that no one will forget. That is really what happened in this scenario.

Whatever she was searching for, I hope Vicki finds it. I’m hoping that she can find peace because I can be at peace with her story and letting her go. As an actor, you do keep parts of your characters inside you, so it’s been such an honor to play her and I think there will always be a little part of Vicki Donovan inside me … just maybe not so mean. I’m going to take a little bit of that out.

Tune in tonight for The Vampire Diaries’ 8×02: “Today Will Be Different” on The CW!

With one season left in The Vampire Diaries’ run, we decided it was time to start collecting everyone’s final diary entries. Every week during the final season, EW is asking those involved with the show to look back on one of their favorite moments from the series. So grab your tissues and join us on this trip down a vampire-filled memory lane.

First up, co-creator and executive producer Kevin Williamson.

All I remember is when we were in Atlanta, I was running by the Margaret Mitchell House one morning and I went into the museum. They had chronicled on the wall how Margaret Mitchell wrote the story of Scarlett O’Hara. It was all about Scarlett being a survivor and it was all about how Gone with the Wind was truly about the north and the south and how they blended together post-war, how they recovered, the reconstruction of the south, and commerce over tradition. And ultimately Scarlett fell somewhere in the middle. She was rooted in her legacy and her history, but she was also a survivor and an opportunist, so she was a blend. You could see why she loved Ashley and why she loved Rhett. Each man represented something different. Rhett was the future, was opportunity. Then you look at Ashley, who was love and passion and legacy and tradition.

As I was walking through that museum, I went, “There’s Damon, there’s Stefan, and there’s Elena… no, that’s not Elena. That’s Katherine. This is Katherine’s story. This is 1864. This is when she bit them. This isn’t our current story; this is yesterday’s story.” There, I started realizing, we’ve got to go there. And I’m not the flashback/period person ever, and I’m like, “Julie, we have to tell the story of Katherine, we have to tell the story of where it all began. We have to back up and show in flashback how Stefan and Damon were turned, and then she’ll have to come back.”

I’m most proud of the cliffhanger [at the end] of season 1. I remember sitting in the room and Julie’s like, “No, Damon and Elena have to kiss. That has to be the cliffhanger. Don’t you remember Dawson’s Creek? You’ve got to do it.” And I’m like, “No, they can’t. You cannot.” We were already fighting about Elena being with Damon or elena being Stefan. I saw it clearly: This is season 1. This is about Stefan and Elena. Elena is not at that place yet where she would kiss him. She’s not drunk; she’s not crazy. She’s our heroine; we cannot sacrifice her character and have her make that move against Stefan. Unless —I’ll never forget that moment in the writers’ room — it’s Katherine.

And then we just started backfilling the whole story: How do we get there? How can we make it Katherine’s return? Then we started plotting the whole thing where aunt Jenna invites her in. There’s so many thing that went into that. I wanted so badly to do like that ultimate Knots Landing cliffhanger where they had not one, not two, but three cliffhangers, but [I wanted] like, six. I wanted every story line to have a cliffhanger: Tyler falling on the ground, the paramedics seeing his eye turn into a werewolf, then you turn and oh wait, Caroline was hurt my the car crash and she passes out. Anna dies in the fire! Then of course, uncle John gets his finger cut off, the big reveal that it’s Katherine. We wanted it to be shocking and it just turned into a perfect storm of everyone collectively bringing their A game and I love that last episode. In my entire career, It’s my favorite cliffhanger episode ever.

That’s when I felt like we had a show that could be successful and that could be really run. It was a beautiful time.


We’re only one episode into The Vampire Diaries‘ final season, and it’s already a mind-screw — and not just for the viewers.

TVLine recently visited the show’s Atlanta set, where stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley did their best to explain the otherworldly control Sybil has over Damon and Enzo, and how that could shape the series’ remaining episodes. Needless to say, it was a struggle.

“This season is really about … the conclusion of what evil sins must these characters pay their dues for,” Wesley says, noting that the “religious undertones” are often lost on him as an atheist.

omerhalder also shares some very kind words for his on-screen brother, while alluding to a scene the two recently filmed: “We’re so dialed-in with one another, we could look at each other and not have to say a word to know exactly what one another is thinking. … There’s something very special about a relationship like that, because you get to get deep very quickly. And I think the performance shows it.”
(Maybe if Damon and Stefan were as synced-up as Somerhalder and Wesley, we wouldn’t be in this Sybil mess in the first place!)
