Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. The cast of The Vampire Diaries admits they love the villainous Klaus, plus, Ian and Nina have a short-lived lovers spat in today's PopSugar Rush! It's clear — the cast of The Vampire Diaries loves Klaus. "I think he's a really good actor, Joseph, and I think he's a great asset for the show." "He's such a great villain, Joseph Morgan, such a phenomenal actor, I'm such a fan of him. Bonnie hates him, but Kat loves him. "I don't know I keep telling them please let Alaric kill Klaus, I just want to kill him, I do, kill him with love, I love Joseph but I do want to kill Klaus" While walking the red carpet at the annual PaleyFest on Saturday night, The Vampire Diaries' resident villain was a popular topic of conversation for the cast, who unanimously wants to keep Klaus on the show, though executive producer Julie Plec hinted to us that his fate may already be sealed. "Joseph Morgan as Klaus has been so spectacular and we love him and we love the character, but he's the villain, and if your heros can't defeat the villain, then does that make them less of heros? So we'll see, I ain't sayin nothin'!" The future of Klaus and all of The Vampire Diaries' characters is unknown at this point, though Ian Somerhalder and Candice Accola offered up some fun ideas for where they'd like to see Damon and Caroline go next. "Caroline would be on a beach in Mexico studying how to make the perfect margharita while also judging men's swimwear competitions." "He goes to a tropical island in the Caribbean and just disappears because the winters and hot summers./Could you imagine Damon sitting with a Corona on the beach?/Shirtless, naturally." Ian kept the jokes coming on stage during the cast panel — when Candice explained that Caroline and Klaus's relationship was based on manipulation, Ian teased: "Aren't all relationships?" ..and after a roar of laughter and declaration that he was just kidding, real life girlfriend Nina made a sassy transition with a sly smile: "So speaking of originals..." Of course, the cute couple quickly moved on from their playful lovers spat . . . . . . on Sunday, both Nina and Ian attended the annual John Varvatos Stuart House benefit, which raises money for the rape treatment center at the Santa Monica-UCLA hospital.
