Celebuzz recently had the opportunity to sit down with rising Vampire Diaries star, Micheal Malarkey. They asked him what we can expect from Enzo next season and a few other spoilery questions.
Celebuzz: First of all congratulations on being upgraded to series regular on the next season of TVD, were you pretty excited when you got the news?
Michael Malarkey: Oh he** yeah! I basically was doing the guest star thing and flying back and forth from London. So for that purpose alone it’s nice to know where I’m going to be for the next year, instead of just bouncing back and forth. It’s kind of a long flight. But I’m over the moon to be a part of such a well established and respected TV show.
CB: What can we expect from Enzo on season six?
MM: Well you’re going to get his same old mischievousness as well as his sense of loyalty. It kind of travels the line between good and evil a little bit. I’ve read about the first six episodes and there’s some really good stuff coming up.
CB: I know the fans love the friendship with Damon and Enzo, are you close with Ian Somerhalder in real life?
MM: Oh yeah, Ian’s great. We get along like a house on fire. Sometimes after wrap, if we’ve been working together we’ll drop back into his house and play guitar or have a glass of wine and just shoot the sh*t, excuse the expression. Yeah, we get along great, he’s a really caring and lovely fella.
CB: When you first joined the cast, were you nervous because it was a well-established show or did you feed off of that energy?
MM: To be honest I didn’t really think too hard about it. I just got the scripts and sat at home and started creating this character and got to set. The thing is, this cast in particular is very close. But they’re not close in the kind of secret club kind of close. They’re really open and the fact that I came in and was warmly embraced into that closeness says a lot about how special this cast is. But I felt a part of things right away so that was great, it was special.
CB: Social media is a big part of TVD’s success. Do you like to interact with fans on Twitter and Instagram?
MM: It’s something I’ve grown accustomed to. It wasn’t something that something came naturally initially. I was encouraged to join Twitter, I wasn’t a part of Twitter before the show. So I kind of took to it, slightly tentatively at first (laughs) and now it’s kind of at the point where it’s kind of second nature. I try to tweet everyday at least and share things about what’s going on with the show as well as my random thoughts and odd comments and information about my music because I’m a musician as well. I’ll be releasing an EP very soon in the next few months. It will be my first release really.
CB: When did you first start your music career? Were you always singing and playing the guitar when you were younger?
MM: I kind of grew up on punk rock and hardcore music and ska and that kind of scene. I used to go to so many shows and Warped Tour and all those alternative kind of gigs. I probably used to imagine being in a punk band a lot but I never actually thought I would be. But then one day in high school me and my friend Jesse were watching this talent show and in between the acts there was this group of kids two years below us that created a punk band. We watched them play and we were like, “We could do that!” And I look over at Jesse and I was like, “Well we should! Why don’t we start a band?!” And he was like, “Alright I’ll play drums.” And I was like, “I’m gonna sing.” So that was where the first band was born, we gradually got instruments and got a few guys together and started playing. So I sang and screamed and did whatever with that band and then I moved to another band. Then throughout that time with the other band called Shady Side I spent about five years recording and playing shows and I learned to play guitar during that time. I was just a singer and I thought it would be better if I could play too. So then I grew out of that and just started playing my own folk music, so that’s what I’ve been doing up until now as just a little hobby.
CB: Who would you say are some of your musical inspirations? Who do you look up to?
MM: Tom Waits is a huge inspiration to me. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Leonard Cohen. All these greats that have good lyrics, I’m a sucker for good lyrics. So my stuff is very lyrically driven and folk style, in the vain of kind of Mumford & Sons and The National kind of vibe. Although I’m not nearly as good as them, I do kind of more fingerpicking type stuff.
CB: On the acting side, is there any actor you would like to work with in the future?
MM: I would love to work with Tom Hardy, I think he’s got this great energy. He always makes really good choices and I just think he would be great to work with. And if Paul Newman wasn’t deceased, rest in peace, I would’ve loved to work with him too, he’s on one of my biggest inspirations.
The Teen Wolf finale may have closed the book on Season 4, but for one fan-favorite character, a new chapter is just beginning.
“There are some big things coming up for Parrish next season,” actor Ryan Kelley tells TVLine. I’m excited about that.”
The Season 4 finale gave us our first taste of what’s to come during a conversation between Lydia and Parrish, in which she promised to help him figure out what he is once and for all. Below, Kelley dissects tonight’s major turning point for Parrish, and what the future might hold for him and Lydia.
TVLINE | OK, be honest: Do you know what Parrish is?
What’s crazy about Teen Wolf is that Jeff and the writers keep us in the dark for the most part. I did have the opportunity to find out what Parrish is, though. I had a sit-down with [creator] Jeff [Davis], and he asked me if I wanted to know, and I said, “Of course! Please, please, please.” I could tell he was super hesitant, so I was like, “Wait, do you want to tell me? Or are you just doing this because you feel bad for me?” He said, “I don’t really want to tell you, but I will if you want me to.” So I decided to wait. I had the opportunity, but I was too big of a baby. I could see he was struggling with it in his mind, so I said, “I’ll just let Jeff do Jeff. He can work his magic.”
TVLINE | I’m sorry, what? I didn’t know a human being could be capable of such restraint.
[Laughs] For many, many, many weeks, I tried to trick Jeff into telling me what Parrish is. I kept saying, “If I know, I can play the character differently,” but I think that’s actually why he doesn’t tell us things ahead of time. He did mess with me a lot, though; he’d smile and look like he was getting ready to say something, then walk away, or pretend to answer a phone call. He messed with me all season.
TVLINE | You must have a theory, at least. Any guesses?
With Jeff, anything is possible. I was almost 99 percent sure I was a hunter in Season 3, so things can definitely change. One of the big theories people seem to be latching onto is that he’s a phoenix, just because of the ashes and the fire. I will tell you I don’t personally think he’s a phoenix, but I could be wrong. I don’t think it’s that simple, it just can’t be.
TVLINE | We don’t know, and you don’t know, but is it possible that Parrish knows?
I don’t know that, but in my opinion, I truly believe he doesn’t. I also hope he’s not evil; I’m just going to throw that out there. And if he’s not evil, there’d be no reason for him to pretend not to know what he is. He’s been asking a lot of questions lately.
TVLINE | Parrish and Lydia definitely have a connection. Might that turn romantic in Season 5?
In the realm of Teen Wolf, anything is possible. And there’s definitely chemistry there; we’ve had some pretty cool scenes together. Whether it ends up being romantic, or just a friendship where he’s intrigued by her, we’re not quite sure yet.
TVLINE | I mean, crazier things have happened; this is Teen Wolf.
That’s actually a running joke on set. Whenever someone’s like, “I don’t understand why my character would do this,” or, “This feels awkward,” the director — or whoever — will be like, “Guys, this is a show about werewolves. Just do it.”
Melissa de la Cruz is taking her Blue Bloods series to a whole new level with her new novel, Vampires of Manhattan, which is out now.
De la Cruz is transitioning the series from the Young Adult genre — traditionally for a more teen audience — to New Adult. The move is bold, since the New Adult genre is relatively new and still breaking into the book market. Novels of this genre typically follow characters in their early 20s and explore elevated themes, especially sex. Vampires of Manhattan won’t disappoint on that front.
De la Cruz said her favorite scene in the book happens when “Mimi and Kingsley reunited, because it’s so electric! Those two have so much chemistry!”
While the love story and sex is a big part of what makes Vampires of Manhattan part of the new adult genre, that isn’t all. The novel explores story lines with heartbreak, career challenges and death with paranormal characters.
“I think maybe the hardest part was letting go of their teen selves,” de la Cruz says of transitioning the characters from Young Adult to New Adult, “especially for Oliver, who’s changed a lot. He had transformed so much that, at some point, I was really worried about him. But he’s the Oliver we know and love in the end.”
With New Adult, de la Cruz was also able to create a different level of excitement around her characters and delve deeper into their personal lives as they become adults.
De la Cruz explained that she started writing the book exactly as readers will see in the opening chapter with Ara. “I wanted to create a new badass vampire character and she sprung to mind immediately.”
Vampires of Manhattan tells Ara’s story, beginning 10 years after the Blue Bloods defeated Lucifer. In the new peace and prosperity among vampires, coven leader, Oliver, holds the Four Hundred Ball, with all of society in attendance. And then we discover that things may not be as peaceful and prosperous as we thought as all hell breaks loose.
De la Cruz said the book’s big twist came as a surprise to even her. “Let’s just say the twist came very late in the writing of the book. I had a different ending, but once I stumbled upon this plot twist, I liked it so much I rewrote the book to match.”
Aside from Vampires of Manhattan, de la Cruz has several other projects in the pipeline. She told us she’s working on “a new book set in the world of Witches of East End that I can’t talk about yet as it hasn’t been announced.”
De la Cruz also teased what’s to come on the Lifetime series based on her Witches of East End books. “I can’t spoiler anything! But there is a really fun Freya and Killian plot in the 1800s that’s coming up and I was there when they filmed it. Also, the season finale is amazing and heartbreaking. The show just keeps getting better and better.”
The author is also already working on Vampires of Manhattan 2, among a handful of other titles, though she didn’t say when she expected the novel to be released.
“I just couldn’t let go of my Blue Bloods,” de la Cruz explained, “I love them. I grew up with the characters and I wanted to see what happened to them after the great finale.”
Fans and new readers will agree: Vampires of Manhattan definitely fills the void and then some.
In a recent interview with OK Magazine, Teen Wolf star Holland Roden revealed how she thinks the hit series should end along with what its like being part of such a huge show and what she hopes to see in Season 5
OK!: Since it’s been a couple of years, how do you think the show should end? Like which story lines would you like to see finished off?
HR: Rhe Stydia thing, Stiles and Lydia, it would be nice to have closure on that. Are they friends, are they more than friends? But that’s all Jeff [Davis], too! I’m a fan of Friends, and I loved the Ross and Rachel connection, and how they ended that.
OK!: How has your life changed along with the show?
HR: Gosh, I was in college when I booked the show. I feel like I’ve grown up on the show, and I feel like the rest of the cast has grown up on the show as well. The boys had just graduated high school. Now I’m in my late 20s. The show’s really been the financial catalyst of my 20s, the emotional catalyst of my 20s. Learning the ins and outs of this business through the show. It’s been a pleasure to be a part of it. My life support.
OK!: Did you ever anticipate the show would be this huge when you signed on?
HR: The intensity of the fans, no. But I think it’s funny that they are as frantic as they are, because it’s a funny way to think about yourself. This was our first experience with that, and so it’s just like anything else I could experience again. We knew it was a good pilot. It was just whether people would give us a chance or not. How I know I love something—I would find myself reading the Teen Wolf scripts, turning off my cell phone, turning one light on over the script, and the world would quiet around me. I fell asleep during the Harry Potter books! For me to be captivated, it takes a lot. We all knew we had a good script, we just needed people to give us a chance.
OK!: MTV just announced another huge, huge season. What do you hope happens in season five?
HR: What I hope to see—I don’t know if it’ll happen—but I would love to continue to explore Lydia’s back story, with her family and the banshee connection. Is it genetic? Was it a divine intervention sort of thing? The nature vs. nurture of how the Banshee thing came to be.
