Julie Plec Speaks on Phoebe Tonkin, Vampire Diaries Season 4 Casting

at . Comments

We got right down to it with Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec in San Diego: How can we get Phoebe Tonkin to move to Mystic Falls?!?

Fellow producer Kevin Williamson teased this possibility a few weeks ago, and then couldn't hide his interest in the former Secret Circle star sticking around The CW when we brought it up again with him at Comic-Con.

So it's your move, Julie. Make her a witch. A waitress. A love interest for Damon. We'll take Tonkin however we can get her.

In this exclusive interview with Plec, she expresses her affection for Phoebe as well, while also touching on Elena's transformation and the new vampire hunter coming to down.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
