Hier is een fragment uit een interview met Matt Davis, die Alaric speelt in de serie. Hij laat nog wat los over komende aflevering!
PW: I’m curious, you’ve had great roles in the last 10 years — is there one you get recognized most often for?
Matt: I think the most consistent thing I hear is, “Oh my God, how do I know you? Did we go to school together?” [laughs] Eventually they get around to asking, “Were you on a TV show?” That’s when I say, “I don’t know if you saw ‘Legally Blonde,’ but..” — “YES! that’s it! You’re Warner!” I would say that Warner is definitely more famous than I am.
PW: Well, I’m sure that’s bound to change with your role as Alaric on “Vampire Diaries.”
Matt: Working on that show has been such a phenomenal pleasure. I’ve been so blessed and so lucky. I don’t know how I’ve been working for 10 years, but someone up there likes me – and this is one of those projects that you can just tell the stars are aligned about.
PW: You delivered the biggest shock of the season for me the other week when I thought Damon killed Alaric!
Matt: [laughs] You know, I would have been nervous reading the script if I didn’t know that I had a contract in place. So I felt pretty confident that they wouldn’t kill me.
PW: I like that he’s still extremely mysterious — are we going to learn more about him as season one winds down?
Matt: Oh, absolutely. That’s all going to come to focus starting next week. Like a colossal “bing!” and all his connections to all the other characters, which are very surprising, will come to the surface. I will say that Alaric makes a very unlikely ally in the show.
PW: And I’m hearing the season finale is going to be jam-packed with cliffhangers?
Matt: Oh yeah, absolutely. It’s going to be ridiculous. We haven’t seen the script, but you start to hear the rumblings and from what I’ve been hearing it’s going to be very intense.
