For those of you that don’t know, I’m a huge fan of Degrassi: The Next Generation. Imagine my utter delight when I got to interview Nina Dobrev who played Mia Jones in the Canadian television staple. More respectably, I was also a huge Everwood fan. Although he had a smaller part, Paul Wesley’s Tommy Callahan still stole my heart when he stole Emily Van Camp’s Amy Abbott away from protagonist Ephram Brown. And did you know that Paul was also in American Dreams? He played Tommy DeFelice. Remember? These two were hitting up my television favorites before I was old enough and wise enough to write about TV for a living. I made a point to catch up with them both at the Entertainment Weekly and SyFy Comic-Con party in San Diego earlier this year.
If you don’t know already, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev will be starring in this year’s most talked about new show, The Vampire Diaries. Paul plays a love struck vegetarian vampire named Stefan and Nina plays the human girl he falls in love with, Elena. We obviously chatted with them about The Vampire Diaries for a bit but we also couldn’t help but ask about Degrassi: The Next Generation or Everwood.
As a note, the voice you hear in the background is the TVAddict who was hanging out with us on the red carpet.
Want to hear how Paul and Nina get along? What does Nina really think of her Degrassi costars? All this and more in the short video below. Be sure to come back next week for our exclusive one on ones with the stars of The Vampire Diaries.
