Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Go Back in Time


Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder show off their 1800’s attire in this behind the scenes photo from tomorrow’s episode of “The Vampire Diaries”. The episode, titled “Children of the Damned”, takes viewers back to 1864 where they’ll get a peek into the life of the Salvatore family…and Katherine.

In flashbacks, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) recall the long-ago actions taken by townspeople including their father, Guiseppe Salvatore (guest star James Remar, “Dexter”), and Pearl (guest star Kelly Hu, “Army Wives”), leading to the devastating events that caused the rift in their relationship. In the present, Bonnie’s (Katerina Graham) date with Ben (guest star Sean Faris) takes a frightening turn. Elena (Nina Dobrev) helps Stefan as he and Damon race to find the missing journal that belonged to Elena’s ancestor. Stefan learns the reason behind Alaric’s (Matt Davis) interest in both the journal and the town’s history. Damon discovers that an old acquaintance has returned to town with an agenda he understands.

In the flashbacks, Nina has to wear a Victorian style dress to play “Katherine,” which at times provided a challenge for the actress. In their recent Q&A at Garden State Plaza, Paul revealed that Nina “bit it” while filming a scene: “She started running and then all of a sudden…WABOOM.” Ian chimed in, “there was just fabric and feet all in the air.” You’re a trooper Nina!
