FanBolt recently had the pleasure of chatting with Steven McQueen, who plays Jeremy Gilbert on CW’s The Vampire Diaries. From how Jeremy will handle Elena becoming a vampire to learning how to use a crossbow, McQueen spills on a number of details with the new season!
In the season finale, it appears that Jeremy could still see dead people, will that come up in season four?
Steven McQueen: Yeah, I don’t think that ability is going away.
How do you think he’s going to react when he finds out about Elena?
Steven McQueen: Elena? Well, he found out at the end of the season, because he was able to see Alaric’s ghost.
But he doesn’t know that she’s a vampire.
Steven McQueen: No, but at the end of the season he knows she’s dead. I think with the vampire thing, I think that he’ll be grateful that she’s not completely gone, but he also contributed to the death of his sister, and caused, and helped planned it. I don’t think he’ll be feeling great about it, he’s been kind of inclouding, I’d say for the last couple of seasons. Self destructing. And that’s been because he’s had something to lose. Now, I feel he’s back in the quarter, and he’ll start to explode a little more this season, and hopefully take charge. Fight back a little!
Get to use your crossbow again?
Steven McQueen: Family legacy’s been hunting. We take certain promo pictures, and the crossbow is present. I don’t know if those are the pictures that we’ll end up using, but I’m hoping so.”
Are you going to have any happiness this season at all?
Steven McQueen: I’d like to think so. I hope so! We’ll see.”
Have a successful love-life?
Steven McQueen: Well, I don’t know. I think he’s been through so much loss that I don’t know if that’s even where his mind’s at right now, but we’ll see. I don’t know that’s up to our capable writers.
What would you like to see happen to him on the show?
Steven McQueen: Again, the family legacy’s been hunting, so i’d love to see him pick up that crossbow more, and just fight back. He’s always been the guy with the big heart that keeps swinging, and keeps getting knocked down.
Why is everyone obsessed with crossbows now?
Steven McQueen: I don’t know, they’re cool! They shoot stuff.
