The Insider recently spoken to The Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham about her character and how Bonnie has a big part to play.
Insider.com: Last night’s episode saw Bonnie have a prophetic dream. Is that a new “power?”
Kat Graham: It’ll happen a little bit more of it in terms of trying to crack the code, which I think it so interesting because you see so much of the supernatural in the actual Mystic Falls world, but you don’t really see it in terms of a subconscious way. I thought it was really cool that they gave Bonnie that.
Insider: In this dream, she saw Klaus lying in the coffin that in reality can’t be opened. How long will it remain sealed?
Kat: I can’t say how long it will be but I can tell you that whatever is in that coffin is extremely important to the future of what’s happening in Mystic Falls – and the show in general. There’s a lot of weight to that reveal.
Insider: Suffice it to say, the reveal will be, in true TVD fashion, shocking?
Kat: So shocking. I thought that by season three they wouldn’t be able to shock me anymore, but that has not been the case at all. It’s always said that a third season is the best season, and in our case, that’s so true. This year is so incredibly shocking. It’s a mind f*** and I love it [laughs]. People will not believe what’s coming and the degree of twists and turns with how they interlock the originals with other things and how their relationships with everyone in Mystic Falls is going to play out.
Insider: Whenever The CW sets up a big round of phoners for you, it’s because Bonnie is quickly put in a life or death situation. Safe to say that’s the case here?
Kat: I love that she’s always in danger of dying. Half of me doesn’t want to be killed off the show, but I want people to be nervous – I don’t want anyone to get comfortable with the mortality of these characters. I love my fans and I love this show, but because of her fearlessness and self-sacrificing nature, it doesn’t have to be a killer that takes her out. It could be herself.
Insider: If Bonnie does die, is that how you’d like her to go out?
Kat: I would prefer a big, huge, blow-out self-sacrificial death. That’s who she is. Bonnie is a powerhouse character and if it were to come to death one day, I would hope it was a choice she made to die.
