Michael Malarkey is known for his work in TV’s the “Vampire Diaries” and “Project Blue Book” but he’s also a singer/songwriter and onetime vocalist for Ohio-based hardcore band Shadyside. On this episode of SPOKE, we talked about the joys of working at a record store—and being young and cocky record store clerk, the ups and downs of social media, how hardcore punk changed his life, and the live audience expectations of an actor/musician.
Danielle heeft een interview gehad met KSiteTV.com over het vierde seizoen van ‘Legacies’.
As we go into Season 4, is dealing with the Malivore the #1 thing on Hope’s mind?
I definitely think so. I think that dealing with Malivore is sort of the theme of this season and of the first four episodes of the season, all that kind of comes to a head. So yes, I think it’s safe to say so.
If Hope does indeed unleash her inner Tribrid, will she have a harder time of it, what with so much going inside of her at once?
Oh, absolutely. If she was to become a tribrid, I think that it would definitely be very complicated. She’s the most powerful being in the universe – technically, we’ve never met a more powerful being. So I think that there’s a lot of fear and anticipation around it: If she were to become the Tribrid, what is going to happen?
If she does become the Tribrid, will this affect her interactions with Alaric, especially?
Absolutely. Seeing how Hope and Alaric have interacted in the beginning part of this coming season has been a real joy to get to play with as an actor. It might be my favorite dynamic that Hope has, as a who. We’ve kind of seen them separated for a bit, but seeing how that relationship progresses and complicates has been really, really beautiful to see.
Can you talk about what it’s like to act opposite Aria as a different version of Landon, in a way since he’s possessed by the Malivore?
Yeah. He loved it, and I think really got into it. It was really nice to be able to play with Aria in a very different way – in a way that was much more challenging. I think I’ve always wanted that for Hope and Landon’s relationship, is to be a little bit more of equals fighting with each other, and so seeing how they are now equals fighting against each other has been really fun to play with as well.
Are you allowed to say anything about Hope’s interactions with Cleo in the premiere?
I think it’s safe to say that seeing Hope and Cleo’s relationship evolve… where it left off, it’s very unfinished… I think that everyone feels that way, so there’s definitely more places to go within that dynamic. I just can’t really say how. Read More
Michael heeft een interview gehad met TVFanatic over het huidige seizoen van ‘Rosswel, New Mexico’.
Hi Michael, how are you?
I’m doing well. I’m doing well. How are you?
Good, I’m great. Thank you. So, I’m just jumping right in here. Kyle has had a lot going on in season three, to put it mildly. How would you describe his journey so far this season?
Well, as I’m sure you know, Kyle is continuing to put out fires. He’s there for as many people as he can be, but he’s definitely called upon. And whenever he’s needed, I feel like he shows up, but in episode 3×09, that’s going to air next week, I think we kind of see things.
Kyle Listens – Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 4
He’s reached his limit. And you sense his frustration. And I feel that it’s warranted even though it comes in a bit hot, but we’re in season three, and his life has taken a turn. And he’s finding out more and more about his own family history, and I think it’s just been a bit frustrating for him.
Sure. And while Kyle was recovering, the audience got the big bomb dropped on us that Ramos is Kyle’s uncle. And that adds another layer to the Valenti history and legacy. So can you kind of speak to where Kyle currently is in regards to his feelings about his father and his feelings about the legacy of his family?
Well, I think what the writers have done is really, from season one to season three, has painted a picture of who Kyle’s father was. Who is Jim Valenti? And at first, we thought he’s this great guy that Kyle had looked up to and always wanted to make proud. And maybe that is the driving force in everything and anything that Kyle does.
Well, now we’re finding out a bit more about who Jim really was. We’ve been on this journey of season two with Jesse Manes, that whole interaction.
And now we’re finding out a bit more in season three. And that really flips Kyle’s world upside down. I don’t see how it couldn’t. So he becomes this angsty, frustrated individual because you’re thinking you know somebody, and you’re finding out all these different things about him or her.
Kyle Looks On – Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 5
And so with Eduardo, I feel that it’s like, “What else? What else am I missing?” What else can be thrown his way? Because now we find out that, yeah, Eduardo, “Oh, you’re my uncle. Interesting. Why hasn’t anybody ever told me that before? Where have you been? Can you help me understand what is going on?”
And when you think about that, Kyle probably thinks, “Well, who am I really? What is this really about?” So I don’t know if he’s, maybe, in the middle of wondering or questioning his own identity of what is this Valenti code? Has that been a lie? Because that’s something that he’s lived by, so that’s where we’re at.
Will we get to find out more about what happened the night that Kyle was attacked?
No, not really. I’m trying to think fast here of exactly, no, I mean, when we started episode 309, we find out, has he been in a coma? Was he injected with something? Was he knocked out? So, it was briefly explained, but I think, more so, we get into Eduardo and Kyle. Who are they to one another?
And that is a jumping-off point for Kyle.
Helping Isobel – Roswell, New Mexico
You touched on this a little bit earlier, but Kyle is not only the doctor that everyone needs, but he’s also a confidant as well. Can you speak to Kyle’s role, how you see Kyle’s role within his group of friends?
Yeah. I think Kyle is somebody that you can depend on. He’s somebody who has everybody’s best interest at heart. If you call upon him, he’s going to be there for you. And I think that what I’ve enjoyed about being on the show is how Kyle is interwoven between all the storylines, everything that’s happening.
He is a part of that, in some capacity. So that’s been fun to play just as an actor with everybody on our cast, but that’s just going to continue. And I feel like it’s just going to get heavier. Just a heavier burden on Kyle, on what else needs to be done, how he can help, what is asked of him, needed of him to finish off the season.
And that also kind of flows into my next question, which is that Kyle is a character that has deeply personal relationships with pretty much all of the core characters, but is there a certain dynamic that you wish could be explored a bit more on the show?
Like this season, we’ve got you with Michael some more and some more with you and Rosa, is there any particular dynamic you’d like to see explored more?
Kyle In LA – Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 1
Great question. A hundred percent. Kyle and Isobel. I want to see it. I want them to…what is their dynamic? Cause I think the energy that Lily brings to Isobel is so… it’s not infectious, but it’s… it is infectious, but it’s also, she just has so much energy.
She’s a ball of energy, and I want to see…and she’s powerful. She’s just fierce. And so, I’d like to see more Isobel and Kyle scenes. What is their friendship relationship to one another? And I’d like to explore that.
Yeah, that’d be great. Cause I also think with Kyle, every person he gets to interact with brings out a different side to him, which is really nice to see as well.
Yes, very much so. I’m glad you noticed that because it’s true. It’s true. And that’s why I picked Isobel because I think that out of everybody, you see the most, you see such a different side of Kyle whenever he’s interacting with Isobel.

Claire Holt (@claireholt) has lived her 33 years as a woman on a mission. Constantly on the move, the Australian beauty has been driven by her intense ambition, landing iconic roles such as Rebekah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and its spinoff series, The Originals, as well as Emma Gilbert in H20: Just Add Water, that catapulted her to mega-fame and set the fast pace of her blossoming acting career. However, as the world came to a halt in 2020, Holt found herself doing the same. And during this time, she realized it may be time to reevaluate her priorities in life.
“I’ve been guilty of always running to the next thing in my life,” Holt admits. “It was always, ‘What’s next?’ ‘Where am I going now?’ I set these career goals for myself and never took the time to slow down. The lockdown ended up being a time for me to think about my life and my future. And I think now I’m on the right path.”
Following a miscarriage in March 2018, which Holt bravely and candidly revealed to her millions of fans on Instagram, she and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed their baby son, James Holt Joblon to the world a year later in March 2019. In the midst of the lockdowns in April 2020, Holt announced to Instagram that she was expecting once again, this time with a baby girl, Elle Madeline Holt Joblon, who was born in September 2020.
“Being pregnant throughout that time was definitely anxiety-inducing as we didn’t know much about the virus or the potential effects on a growing baby. But it was so nice to be able to spend extra time with my family and just slow down. It allowed me to look into alternative business paths given that the acting world was put on hold,” Holt notes.
Prompting an interest to expand her horizons in the investment world, Holt’s entrepreneurial spirit flourished as she took stake in beauty brand Fig. 1 and launched her first swimsuit collaboration with Andie Swim.

An interview with the Louisiana native, whose winding journey has taken him from Cajun cowboy to television star to bourbon boss
“It helps curb the cravings. But…makes for a lot of lushy vamps.” That’s a line from an early episode of The Vampire Diaries—the TV series that became a worldwide phenomenon over eight seasons—describing vampires’ love of spirits. In the show, the two vampire brothers, Damon and Stefan Salvatore, played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, raise this to an art form with their consumption of bourbon. It’s also a story element that inspired Somerhalder and Wesley to start a distillery and release their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, earlier this year.
The venture fits with Somerhalder’s childhood in Louisiana. On Sundays after church, he says, the adults would enjoy mint juleps, creating indelible scenes in his memory. Even though Somerhalder now lives in California with his wife and daughter, the South—and its greatest drink—seems to have a powerful pull on this model turned actor, who also starred on the hit series Lost.
Did you learn about the “rules of vampires” by watching The Lost Boys?
Oh, my, I loved that movie—and it still holds up. I knew a lot about vampires because I grew up near the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. In the distance you can see New Orleans glimmering. It has a mystique for vampires, and my mom loved Anne Rice; plus my family is Cajun. As a kid I was always saying, “Yeah, let’s go find a vampire.”
Candice en Kayla waren eerder deze maand te gast bij de podcast ‘ Love A Lifetime Movie’ waarin ze een review deden van de film ‘Drink, Slay, Love’.
Daniel heeft een nieuwe fotoshoot en interview gehad met Mr. Warbuton Magazine. Met het tijdschrift praat hij over zijn nieuwste film ‘Coming Home in the Dark’, zijn rol in de Netflix-serie ‘Virgin River’ en hoe hij de afgelopen quarantaine periode in de pandemie heeft doorgebracht.

ith 2 hot new projects, Coming Home in the Dark and Occupation Rainfall, actor Daniel Gillies sits down with MRWARBURTON MAGAZINE to talk going back to New Zealand to film and his personal style.
Shot on location at the Chamberlain hotel in West Hollywood, special thank you to their excellent team!
Since 2010, the spunky (that’s Aussie and Kiwi slang for good-looking) face of Daniel Gillies has been a fixture of network television. After a successful stint on the Australian drama Street Legal and a subsequent string of guest roles on a slew of popular American shows, the Canadian-born and New Zealand bred actor landed the role of Elijah Mikaelson on the long-running hit series The Vampire Diaries and its successful spin off The Originals. In addition, he somehow managed to simultaneously star in the Canadian supernatural medical drama series Saving Hope. And since no actor can amass too many successful TV roles, in 2019 Gillies began a recurring role in the sleeper Netflix sensation Virgin River.
That is all about to change by early summer. Gillies’ image will appear a bit bigger, and his audience reach will broaden exponentially with two major film releases. Written and directed by Luke Sparke, Occupation: Rainfall (already a box-office hit in Australia) is an action-packed sci-fi adventure set to land in American cinemas in time for the summer blockbuster season.
More significantly, however, is the breakout Sundance Film Festival critical favorite Coming Home in the Dark. An intense psychological thriller directed by James Ashcroft from the story by Marshall Owen, the film has won critical acclaim following its festival premier. In the lead character of Mandrake, Gillies landed the role of a lifetime as an eerily icy yet riveting sociopath with a vengeance who demands unwavering attention every moment he is on screen.
