Arielle Kebbel has appeared as trouble maker Paige Thomas on “Life Unexpected,” Stefan’s BFF Lexi Branson on “The Vampire Diaries” and is currently the resident crazy chick on “90210” as Vanessa Shaw; who is on a mission to make Liam (Matt Lanter) pay for what he did to her. Arielle also hosts the weekly recap of the latest episode of “The Vampire Diaries” called “Rehash” on CWTV.com
I interviewed Arielle on the Opening Night Red Carpet at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, TX.
Hi Arielle, I wanted to interview you because you have been on a bunch of CW shows.
CW and I get along great!
First off, your character was killed off of “The Vampire Diaries.”
I know, poor Lexi.
Lexi’s death surprised and shocked everybody. It sort of set a trend of killing off main characters on the show. So you’re sort of a trend setter.
Thank you, I’ll take that title.
You were also on “Life Unexpected,” playing the bad girl Paige. Liz Tigelaar created an amazing show.
I know. I was a huge fan of the show before I came on board. We all joke that it’s the show that never dies because half of us are here at the ATX Festival. It’s like being a part of one big, happy family. I am thrilled to be here supporting it. And we get to relive a great moment in time and TV.
And now you are on “90210.” Getting to do all those “90210” things; kind of like college to the extreme.
Absolutely. Anytime you are involved with that area code you just don’t know what to expect. Everything is fair game. It’s a fun show to do and I love my character, you never know what she is going to do. It’s a great part to play and I think there will be some surprises in store for the fans of the show.
You can see Arielle on “90210” Monday December 10 at 8pm on CW69.
