Head up guys! For those attending Eyecon’s Vampire Diaries Convention this weekend, we have a VERY IMPORTANT schedule change to announce. Ian Somerhalder was originally scheduled to appear Sunday, November 3rd, but has had to switch his appearance to Saturday, November 2nd. He WILL be available early Sunday for additional photo ops, including the Salvatore Sandwich with Paul Wesley. Here is the official announcement from Eyecon:

We have just received word that Ian will be filming on Sunday. Rather than cancel his appearance, he and his team were gracious enough to work with us and change his appearance to Saturday. His Q&A, Photo Ops, and Autograph Sessions will take place Saturday. Since Paul appears Sunday, Ian has agreed to return Sunday morning to take further photo ops so the Group photos will still happen! If you purchased a Sunday ticket and would like to exchange it, you may. We will do this at the convention, a Sunday ticket will be in your package, simply come on Saturday and pick up your packet, and exchange for a Saturday. Please note that this is not a refundable change as the Schedule has been listed as extremely tentative and guest cancellation or change is noted on the refund policies page. However, any Autograph tickets purchased for Ian can be refunded if you are unable to attend on Saturday, his photo ops can still be redeemed on Sunday. Please check the schedule which has been updated.

Let me just say, although, I have not had an opportunity to attend any other conventions, but have had the opportunity to attend an Eyecon convention, particularly the one in March of this year.

So I am looking forward to returning in October and I hope you guys will join me!

Again, as we mentioned in our last post, Creation Entertainment‘s first Vampire Diaries convention was this past weekend in Nashville, TN. And we have some photos and highlights from the 2nd day of the convention.

Michael Trevino, Paul Wesley and Zach Roerig appeared on Sunday. And again, you can thank @KYChelsMarie for the awesome captures of them during their panels, view the rest on her Twitpic profile.

So far, we have heard wonderful things about the convention itself. Hopefully, we can get someone to give us their own account, so stay tuned for a possible review!

Highlights from Exclusive Gold patrons panel via @tvdnews:

  • Paul helped up his little sister’s school popularity by picking her up from a party.
  • Everyone loves working with Candice.
  • Zach would like to see Matt do something for himself this season. Jokes he should hook up with Sheriff Forbes.

Via @TVAfterDark:

  • Michael says the Werewolf transformation was very exhausting. Shot it over two 14hr days. Mentally exhausting and being in that vulnerable state and feeling wrecked in the head, it was intense. He’s never been challenged as much as he was in that scene.
  • Who is your favorite cast member to work with? Like working with Candice and Matt Davis.

Highlights From Michael Trevino panel via @TVAfterDark:

  • Michael says he is shirtless so far for at least ALL the 5 episodes so far.
  • Would you like being a werewolf or vampire? Thinks vampires are kinda feminine. He likes his wolf.
  • Intimate scenes are not awkward for him, he enjoys them immensely. :)
  • Describe your self in 3 words? “Daring, spontaneous & determined and a RAGER if I can get a 4th one in there.”
  • Who would you love to work with dead or alive? Dean or Brando in his younger years.
  • After the scene when Tyler’s mom shot Caroline, his mom texted him and said, “That’s right see how its done!”

Highlights From Paul Wesley’s panel via @tvdnews:

  • Loves playing Stefan, but if he had to play another character, Klaus.
  • Asked about make up time for Stefan: “Are we including my hair?”
  • If you were a real vampire, human or animal blood? Paul: “I don’t want to drink blood, guys!”
  • When the camera is just on Ian sometimes Paul makes faces at him.
  • He and Gillies crack each other up a lot.
  • Asked about research for Stefan: watched lots of vampire movies, but tries to play Stefan as an individual, a person.
  • Lots of flashback stuff is shot in real locations, a big benefit to shooting in Atlanta.
  • Stefan could hurt Elena while he’s the ripper, the ripper is like a whole different person, very dark.

Highlights From Zach Roerig’s panel via @tvdnews:

  • Really wants Matt to have a love interest soon. A real one, with sex scenes.
  • Hard jobs: baling hay, pouring concrete. Hardest thing he ever did: moved to NYC.
  • Most daring thing he’s ever done: jumped off a 40 foot cliff.
  • Was in 4-H, raised pigs. Participated in a pig scramble (catching greased pigs) as a little kid.
  • If he had to pick between being a vamp or a werewolf in real life, he’d pick wolf.
  • Watching himself on tv is awkward, but useful for learning.
  • The night he was born, the doc told his mom he’d be stillborn. A couple minutes later, there was Zach, very alive!

Got any plans Labor Day weekend, September 2 – 5, 2011?? Well, if not, you might want to think about heading to Atlanta, GA for Dragon*Con.

What is Dragon*Con you ask? It boasts to be “the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe!”

Most recently, Michael Trevino, Sara Canning and David Anders have been added to the line up. That’s just from The Vampire Diaries. If you are generally a fan of the vampire genre, you will also have the chance to meet stars from True Blood and Being Human too!

For more information on tickets, signings and photo opportunities, please head on over to Dragon*Con for all the deets!
