‘Vampire Diaries’ Stars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder Contemplate Season Four Challenges

Bloody hell! The wait is finally over! “The Vampire Diaries” returns to our oh-so lonely television sets tonight, with a highly anticipated premiere that will deliver on the promise: “This season, everything will change.” And how could it not? With Elena joining the growing ranks of Mystic Falls’ Society for the Undead and Klaus clandestinely inhabiting Tyler’s body, ish is getting crazier than ever before. (How is that even possible!?)

We’ve already recapped the five most important things you must remember about season three before sitting down to watch tonight’s season four premiere, but we have another goodie for you to sink your teeth into. We recently visited the series’ Atlanta set, where we chatted all things bloodsucking with the stars. Of course, they were more than happy to offer up the goods, especially when we asked each what their character’s greatest season four challenge will be.

Unsurprisingly, Ian Somerhalder had the best zinger of the bunch as far as his devilish Damon Salvatore was concerned: “Not getting killed and getting laid. That’s about it.”

Ian, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Be sure to click play on the video above to hear more from Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola and Michael Trevino (after he interrupted Candice’s interview! Silly hybrid!).

How excited are you for tonight’s premiere? Do you think these characters can overcome the challenges before them? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
