MTV: 'Vampire Diaries' Mid-Season Preview

Tyler may still be under the spell of Original Vampire Klaus, but that doesn't mean he's forgotten how to party. I caught up with Michael Trevino, the man behind the show's first successful vampire-werewolf hybrid who doesn't have an English accent, for a chat about tonight's mid-season finale and beyond. Michael answered my questions about Tyler, Klaus, My Morning Jacket, Paul Wesley's wife joining the show and whether Katherine is alive or dead. CLICK HERE to read the rest of my report.
