Warning to all fans of The Vampire Diaries: you may need a glass of ice cold water prior to reading any further. Not to drink. To douse on yourself.
That's because stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, with all three gracing the main cover and Nina having each actor to herself on a pair of separate, collectible covers.
Click on the trio of photos below for larger versions and take note of the colors assigned to Wesley and Somhaler... if you can get past the fact that none of them are wearing a shirt, that is. How roles have changed for Stefan and Damon...
Inside the issue - on sale Friday! - producer Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson talk about the challenge of Elena and Damon's first real kiss, and how they wanted to keep both Stelena and Delena fans on board with it.
In general, when considering the love triangle, Plec says:
“How can we service this moment between our characters that we really want, a Damon and Elena kiss, without getting the Stefan-Elena side of the fandom to give up hope and give up on us? And vice versa, when we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?”
For a lot more about the show, pick up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. As if we needed to tell you that.
