The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle creator Kevin Williamson comments on Elena’s big change, the Circle‘s cancellation, and why he wants Phoebe Tonkin in Mystic Falls.

In an in-depth interview with IGN, Williamson opens up about the Secret Circle cancellation, saying:

I am so sorry to all the fans, but that show is gone. I just don’t think it ever found its audience — I don’t know. Because I feel like we had some beautiful, wonderfully talented actors, the show looked beautiful, and there was a lot of hard work put into it.

On wanting Phoebe Tonkin to transition to The Vampire Diaries:

I loved the cast. I love Phoebe [Tonkin]. I love her. I want her on Vampire Diaries. I ought to write her in.

And finally, he also talks about the decision to turn Elena into a vampire at the end of season 3:

To me the most moving moment in the whole thing is when Elena says, “I don’t want to be a vampire.” That worked, and I think that’s going to drive the entire fourth season for a long time, and watching her on that journey.

That sounds like pretty definitive closure from Kevin Williamson, doesn’t it?

    Yes, please, Phoebe on TVD! That would make me so happy. She was my favorite of the cast on TSC.

    Is it just me, or do other people also get the impression that American producers of teenage-targeted shows only seems to want to employ beautiful people in the main cast, so most end up looking like the characters have all stepped out of a fashion catalogue?

    • Kate

      Most shows on American tv are like that. I always find it so refreshing to watch British television and see people that don’t look so perfect.

    At least Phoebe Tonkin will always have a job as long as Kevin Williamson is doing television.

    What a cop out Mr. Williamson, “I just don’t think it ever found its audience”, uh huh that’s why it was the CW’s third highest rated show and has a large fan base on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube trying to save the show. Stop lying to us and tell us the truth, we deserve that much! 

  • Gary65

    Why is it that every time there’s a sign of hope for the show, one of the cast comes out and delivers a death blow? What is wrong with these people?

    On another note, if TSC truly cannot be saved then snap up Phoebe Tonkin pronto. The woman is amazing and I’ll watch her on any show she appears on.

    Gutted that this seems to be the definitive end for TSC, I was really hoping the fan campaigns would work, however I would LOVE to see Phoebe on The Vampire Diaries.

    I don’t know why I do so much but I really hate Kevin Williamson after this interview. He acted like the show had no fan base at all and that phoebe was the only good person working on the show >..< It was such a good show…

    I hate the cancelled the secret circle,it was a good show but they are looking for somebody to play the new character April,on The vampire diaries I think the beautiful Logan Browning would be a good choice. Or maybe Aly michalka, Aartin Mann(hot babe from big bang theory),Heather Hemmens, Tinashe Kachingwe, or Nadia Bjorlin.It would be cool to see one of those hot babe on the vampire diaries. I will admit Phoebe Tonkins is cute, and attractive, but she kinda reminds ya of elena with her hair style. But no matter who williams choose his shows are always the best.
