MTV: 'Vampire Diaries' Interviews

The cast of "The Vampire Diaries" has endured a lot for their art: fast-paced stunts, fake blood, corsets, shower scenes, you name it. A crucial flashback episode coming later this season will require perhaps the most demanding training thus far: SCUBA lessons!

Having already shown us the 19th century, the '20s, "1912" and more, "The Vampire Diaries" will soon flashback to that fateful night when Elena (Nina Dobrev) lost her parents on the newly restored Wickery Bridge and was rescued by vampire Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). We don't know who will be playing Grayson and Miranda Gilbert just yet. But we do know there'll be lots of underwater work.
