Thanks to StarryMag on Twitter for letting me now, you can read below an interesting interview of Nina from Comic Con.
Q) Going into next season, how are you making Elena as a vampire different from Katherine as a vampire?
A) That’s going to be my biggest challenge. I don’t know quite yet. I think I’ll be figuring it out as we go, just like we did when we first started the show and did the pilot. We all got cast and then as our experiences on and as the characters evolved (depending on what they brought) we discovered our character. This Elena is going to be completely different from original Elena and from Katherine. I have to see how Julie [Plec] decides to shape her as an individual.
Q) Do you think will also undergo a physical transformation?
A) No. That’s the one thing that drives me crazy; it drives me crazy in our show when something happens and then all of a sudden they are a completely different person. I think she still has to be herself, she’s just a vampire. Just because she has fangs doesn’t mean she’ll be wearing skin tight leather pants. Katherine was like that because it was part of her personality. She was just a sassy, stylish sexy mama. Maybe Elena will evolve throughout the years and go shopping a little bit. She’s going to stay true to her.
Q) One thing that has been said is that vampirism has amplified certain characteristics about people. What characteristics about Elena will be amplified next year?
A) She’s very compassionate. She’s very caring and selfless. These are all the qualities that could be her greatest flaws as a vampire. When you are someone who can’t survive without blood, if you can’t kill someone or feed then it is a big problem. If you go into a downward spiral when you do feed and hurt someone (these are just assumptions)…But she’ll be incredibly compassionate and want to help people and died to save everyone around her that she cares about.
Q) Are you excited to remember some of things that Damon has compelled Elena to forget?
A) It’ll be crazy! It’ll be funny because she’ll be like, “Wait a minute?! I thought I was just tired that day!” She’s probably going to be pissed, but then she’ll be a hypocrite because she made him compel her brother multiple times.
