TV Guide Magazine’s William Keck has a brief chat with Taylor Kinney about his role as Mason Lockwood, Tyler’s uncle, on Vampire Diaries. They also have the first official promo shot of this much-anticipated new character. Kinney discusses the effect Mason’s return will have on the various residents of Mystic Falls, particularly Tyler and a certain pair of vampire brothers, special effects, and more.
“Mason has learned to harness his rage and is going to serve as a mentor to Tyler,” says Taylor. “I’ve come to teach Tyler that there are choices he can make to control his destiny as a human…or otherwise.”
