Joseph Morgan and Nina Dobrev chatted with EW after the San Diego Comic Con and they were happy to spill some season 3 details. Morgan teases flashbacks to the ‘Original Family’, while Dobrev spoils about a rugged adventure with Alaric in episode 2.
“We get a chance to go back and see the point where they became vampires and where the curse was placed on Klaus to suppress his hybrid nature, his hybrid side,” he told a roundtable. “It’ll be interesting when we introduce other originals who are possibly equally as powerful or have some sort of emotional hold over Klaus … to see what that brings out of him.”
“Elena and Alaric go on a sweaty, rugged adventure together, and I have to cool off at one point. We get to bond a little bit, and filming scenes with Matt Davis is great, because he’s a really funny light-hearted guy and there’s a lot of comic relief,” she says. And while she wouldn’t elaborate on how Elena “cools off,” she did share a story about how the cast beats the Georgia heat: “We try to set up tents with air conditioning, but it ends up being hotter inside the tent than it is outside, so what we do is we take ice packs and we put them on our wrist, or on our neck, or down our pants just to keep cool.”
