Steven R. McQueen & Michael Trevino Chat 'The Vampire Diaries'

Steven R. McQueen and Michael Trevino show off men’s fall fashion in this new feature for Zooey magazine.

The two Vampire Diaries hunks chatted with the glossy about the show and what’s coming up for both of their characters in the new season. Check it:

Michael on Tyler: “There have been so many transitions with Tyler. In season one he was basically just this one-note douchebag, alpha-male, football jock. In season two, he’s cursed and becomes a werewolf, and when we finished off in season three, he was the first successful hybrid created by Klaus. Our cliffhanger in season three was Tyler becoming Klaus after Klaus is taking over Tyler’s body. We’re going to see that play out in the beginning of season four.

Steven on Jeremy: “His main objective was always to keep his family safe. He fails to do so, and Elena (Nina Dobrev) dies. I think now his main objective has changed to becoming stronger and controlling his destiny. He’s the guy in the ring that gets knocked around but keeps getting back up. We see him start to callous and become stronger.”

Michael on season four: “[I'm excited] to see how long I’m going to be playing Klaus. And When Tyler is his own self again, I wonder how that’s going to play out with Caroline and affect the whole love triangle between she, Klaus and Tyler. We left it on a weird note and Caroline’s in the dark about it. I want to see how she reacts to what’s happening. [The best part is] kissing Caroline (played by Candice Accola), without a doubt.”

Steven on Jeremy’s relationship with Bonnie: “Jeremy hooked up with Anna, who was a ghost, and that caused friction between them. I say necrophilia doesn’t count (laughs). I don’t know quite where they stand— that’s up to our very capable writers— but I’d love to see him get back with Bonnie (played by Kat Graham).”

The Vampire Diaries returns THIS Thursday, October 11th @ 8PM ET/PT on the CW.

    I have loved seeing both of these characters evolve throughout the show, but I think that Tyler has been the most complex. He has completely changed from who he was in the first season and I am very excited to see Michael put his acting to the test as Klaus. A co-worker at DISH and I have also been wondering how long Klaus will be in his body, I can’t imagine that Caroline will let it go on for long. I can’t wait to find out when I get to finally return to Mystic Falls, I have already programmed my Hopper to record the premiere tomorrow night. With my late train ride, I have been putting the 2,000 hours of recording space to good use with all of my favorite shows. I also love that I get to watch everything commercial free, especially when it comes to premieres. This season looks amazing; I can’t wait to see what other challenges Tyler will face once he gets the Klaus situation under control.
