The creator of the Vampire Diaries series, Julie Plec, observes the fiction starring Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder from a distance and realizes some things that would have changed if they had been designed sometime later.
Vampire Diaries fans have a very iconic love affair that would not be possible today, thanks to the show starring Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev. At least that is what the creator of the series, Julie Plec, believes that four years after its outcome, she has been giving viewers the most interesting headlines for some time on the occasion of her participation in the ‘Entertainment Weekly’ podcast EW’s Binge: The Vampire Diaries, in which the successful series aired on the CW from 2009 to 2017 is being reviewed.
Plec refers to the couple that appeared in the third season of Vampire Diaries Chronicles, the one that is currently being reviewed, coinciding with the arrival of the mythical Klaus ( Joseph Morgan ), an original vampire who has been legendary even before meeting. Which actor would be in charge of interpreting it.
While evil like no one else and the main villain upon his arrival in Vampire Diaries, the character evolved throughout the series, leaving him in a better place in fans’ memories -and hearts- thanks to the love affair with Caroline ( Candice King ).
However, if you follow the CW series, you will remember that at the time when their love story began, Klaus was not only responsible for numerous deaths, but he had also played Caroline’s boyfriend, Tyler ( Michael Trevino). He had used her as his acolyte and made her moderate him, causing her death. In the end, only Klaus could save Caroline’s life, and he did, but far from being a hero, he himself had led her to this life and death situation.
“Candice had chemistry with everyone and Caroline, as a result, had chemistry with everyone,” says Plec, recalling the scene of salvation and assuring that, then, neither the writers knew what potential there was between the two in Vampire Diaries. “I think the chemistry was born out of that scene, rather than the other way around.” Soon many followers of the Vampire Diaries began to “ship” Caroline and Klaus, who were nicknamed Klaroline. However, although the creator is happy and believes that it gave rise to great moments in the series, she also believes that today it would not have been possible.
“[The relationship] It’s too toxic. That little romantic relationship would not have even passed through the writer’s room today because it is incredibly fucked”
Also, also talking about relationships during the podcast, Ples reveals that, on the contrary, I planned the relationship between Matt ( Zach Roerig ) and Bonnie ( Kat Graham ) for years without realizing that it was not going to happen in Vampire Diaries. “I ship them since pool day and in my head, the end of the series would have been a ‘flashforward’ in which Bonnie and Matt ended up together and had a family.” That idea stayed in their bedroom for a while, but eventually, they changed their minds.
