Julie Plec said that having you play dual roles is kind of hard on the production department because it takes a lot out of you, plus there’s a lot of planning that has to happen. But do you find it actually kind of refreshing to play someone different for change, especially someone as awesome as Katherine?
The thing is, it’s definitely hard on production and hard on me in many ways. It makes the show very interesting to have the dual roles and see the different kinds of relationships between Katherine and Stefan and Damon versus Elena and Stefan and Damon. So having doppelgängers makes for a good story, but it is hard to schedule around it. And because there’s such a physical change—not to mention an emotional and mental change—I have to really shift gears and become another person each scene we shoot, and so it is a lot of work.
We know that Elena doesn’t want to become a vampire, but does she have ANY goals in life? It’s not clear.
That’s a very good question. She doesn’t want to be a vampire but she does want to have a family. Honestly, she just wants to be normal. She’s realized after everything she’s been through that she just wants to be normal and she just wants to be treated normally and have a regular existence. But planning or making any long-term life goals has been very difficult because people are dying around her all the time. She’s going through so much on any given day that she just doesn’t have the capacity to think about three months from now when everything around her is blowing up in her face at all times.
