Plus, Michael tells HollywoodLife.com we’ll find out how ‘solid’ Caroline & Tyler’s relationship is in a Klaus-free world.

The Vampire Diaries season finale threw fans a major curveball when Bonnie (Kat Graham) put Klaus (Joseph Morgan) into Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) body, and when HollywoodLife.com talked to Michael at The CW’s Upfront presentation May 17, he told us he couldn’t wait to sink his teeth into his dark new role. “I hope it lasts,” he confessed. “I would imagine the first episode of season four I’ll be playing Klaus, but I want to see how long we can push it.”

But even though Michael is stoked to get to play the bad guy, he’s also looking forward to resuming his duties as Tyler — particularly because he wants to see what the future holds for him and Caroline (Candice Accola).

“Klaus isn’t an issue now,” he said. “So I want to see how solid their relationship is.”

Watch my full interview with Michael below, during which we discuss Tyler’s lack of transformation scenes in season three. The phrase “shirtless grunting” is used, so why don’t you just do yourself a favor and watch it?
