“Dear Friend,” -Shop Around the Corner (1940) vs She Loves Me (2016 Broadway Revival)
I wanted to see the difference between how Jimmy Stewart and Zachary Levi adapted this character to their own personal acting styles. With the slight adjustments to the Broadway show, I wasn’t expecting it to match up so closely.
Revealed at Disney’s D23 Fan event, the first look at Ava Duvernay’s adaptation of “A Wrinkle In Time”, which will be in theaters on March 9, 2018.
Directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Jennifer Lee based on the novel by Madeleine L’Engle. The film stars: Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peňa, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, André Holland, Rowan Blanchard with Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine and introduces Storm Reid.
This show is always going to be about Stefan and Elena. It has to be. They’re soulmates.
The bottom line is that Elena and Stefan are the true epic love story of the show. Damon is the third point of the triangle.
For the pilot and the TV series to work, the relationship between Elena and Stefan had to be magic. I said to myself “This is phenomenal”. There is real chemistry between Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev.
I just want [Stefan] in the end to find his love, that’s all he cares about. Of course I want him to end up with Elena. Cause I have to, that’s all I can hope for. Elena is his true love.
At the beginning it’s not a triangle, Elena and I just have this passion and love that is undying. Stefan is so desperately in love with Elena he would die for her. He would do anything for her; nurture, care and protect her, even jump in front of a bus for her.
It’s really the story of this sort of triangle in a sense, but really actually more so the love between my character (Stefan) and Elena.
I think Stefan’s the good guy, but my biggest interest is Elena and her love. He lives for Elena. Without her, he’s nothing.
We want to make it as real as possible, and as genuine, and we want to make everyone fall in love with these characters and believe the love story. That’s what it’s about. It’s about Stefan and Elena’s undying love.
Stefan and Elena have this love that is so pure and natural, and I think that that’s not gonna change and I don’t really want that to. I think it will be challenged as it has been.
Stefan is very attractive because he is protective of Elena and he loves her unconditionally. He would do anything for her, and he’s committed.
She’s all Stefan, all the time though – she loves Stefan.
I feel like she has high morals, and she loves Stefan. It’s always been Stefan.
I think Elena would marry Stefan...
Is she single right now? Elena is always, no matter how single she is, she’s still standing there with Stefan. They’re a couple who have conflicts and they have a big one looming. They’re starting to truly disagree about how to handle things. But no, I wouldn’t stay she’s going to stay single by any means. I wouldn’t say she’s single now. She may be arguing or disagreeing with Stefan at the moment, but I don’t think they’re too far apart.
Season one, my favorite scene was the moment when I… uhm… this is going to sound ridiculous, but it really was that entire sequence I did with Nina up to the point where we first made love. But for me it was more about, you know… (1x10) she touched my face for the first time, saw my veins, watched me turn into this creature and she accepted me for who I was and it was symbolic on many levels. It was a very intimate moment and I loved shooting that scene, that was beautiful. I think honestly that’s my favorite moment so far.
With Stefan, whenever he’s around she’s just, it’s almost like she melts into his arms and she feels somewhat relieved.
Vampires can’t procreate. But they can practice. Maybe we’ll adopt a baby, me and Elena.
But there is always going to be this connection between Elena and Stefan. So maybe eventually, that will win. Won’t it?
I also don’t think Stefan is out of the picture really. Both Elijah and Daniel think Stefan is still the biggest romantic threat for Elena’s heart.
Caroline is very much a Stelena shipper. I think Caroline has seen such a wonderful side of Stefan. She really has seen the reasons in which Elena has fallen for him, and she sees that he can protect her and bring a good side of her out. I think she sees Stefan as much more protective and, you know, a good person to be with.
I think that deep down she’s in love with the person that Stefan is. She loves warm-hearted people who are loving…
I think the Elena/Stefan storyline is an integral part of the show. I think their love is infinite.
Steven R. McQueen:
Damon broke my neck so screw that guy! I would go with Wesley.
No shit it’s always gonna be Stefan… It’s always gonna be Stefan. I don’t blame her, Stefan’s a better dude.
Stefan honored Elena’s choice to save [Matt] and he’s kind of OK with that because that’s how much he really loves Elena.
Yeah. I think she made the right choice. They’re pretty great together.
Stelena will always be the core of the show, the show revolves around Stelena.
Stefan feeds Elena’s soul.
It’s all about Stelena #thatsright #isaidit
I love The Notebook, and I know an epic love story when I see one, and I felt like Elena and Stefan had an epic love.
Personally, I want Elena to be human again. Because I think it’s a better dynamic.
I liked Elena the human in the beginning the best.
It was very surreal to shoot the last scene with Nina Dobrev. But everything must come to an end one day or another. I never imagined that Stefan and Elena would end up like this, without love, without something romantic between them.
