In stills Hollywood Crush hightlighted earlier this month, “Vampire Diaries” fans got a sneak peak of Elena (Nina Dobrev), Bonnie (Katerina Graham), Caroline (Candice Accola), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) all decked out in the 1950s vintage garb, and star Katerina Graham revealed to us to that the episode will take some interesting turns.
“You’d be shocked who Elena goes to the dance with!” Kat teased to MTV News. “The costumes are really cute… I loved shooting 50′s stuff. We would do these takes and were jamming out to all the 50′s hits and stuff like that, and it was just a blast — when we were doing our hair and makeup in the trailers they were blasting this 50′s music.”
Kat explains that the decade theme will play a pivotal role for the ladies in the episode, noting that they are “traveling back in time” (for the school dance) with purpose. “That episode has a lot to do about strength and finding your voice as a women, and I like that they paralleled that with the 50′s,” she said. “During that time a lot of that was going on, and I think it was just a brilliant script and brilliant episode to shoot.”
“It’s about finding your voice,” she continued. “You know Bonnie’s actually pretty bold in that episode and so is Elena and so is Caroline. I think for me, when I read the script, I noticed the parallels between the actual 50′s era versus kind of having that modern day strength of a woman.”
