Holy Hotness: Vampire Diaries Stars Cover EW

by at . Comments

Warning to all fans of The Vampire Diaries: you may need a glass of ice cold water prior to reading any further. Not to drink. To douse on yourself.

That's because stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, with all three gracing the main cover and Nina having each actor to herself on a pair of separate, collectible covers.

Click on the trio of photos below for larger versions and take note of the colors assigned to Wesley and Somhaler... if you can get past the fact that none of them are wearing a shirt, that is. How roles have changed for Stefan and Damon...

Inside the issue - on sale Friday! - producer Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson talk about the challenge of Elena and Damon's first real kiss, and how they wanted to keep both Stelena and Delena fans on board with it.

In general, when considering the love triangle, Plec says:

“How can we service this moment between our characters that we really want, a Damon and Elena kiss, without getting the Stefan-Elena side of the fandom to give up hope and give up on us? And vice versa, when we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?”

For a lot more about the show, pick up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. As if we needed to tell you that.

The magazine covers are nice all three. I will say the editor did make Nina look hard and not soft. Being a Jersey girl ... Paul tips my list!

has anyone thought about how TVD is very similar to Buffy?
I mean girl falls in love with a boy. She finds out that he's a vampire but decides she's cool with it. Then the nice vampire becomes evil and the girl struggles with how to cope with it.
So my guess of how everything with Elena and Stefan is going to turn out is that either Elena kills Stefan or Stefan will become good again and they will get back together :P

I saw this online this morning and all I have to say is WOW and Nina is one lucky girl! I know it will be silly but I will buy all 3 covers......
I did not think anything of the black sheets with Stefan and the white with Damon. It can mean two thing that Stefan is now bad and Damon good OR that Stefan and Elena's relationship will never happen again so it is dark and dead and the her and Damon will become a full on couple so white and happy

I thik this is just a move how to get attention back to the main trio. Now, when everyone is focused on the Original family they issue these exciting pictures. Suspiciously smart timing for the photos.
