ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When did you all decide that Cami was going to die?
MICHAEL NARDUCCI: We decided pretty early on in the breaking of season 3 that Cami was going to be thrust into the middle of the goings-on and we knew that if a human were put into the middle of a sire line vampire war, it was going to be a very dangerous situation for her. We love Leah [Pipes]; we know she’s an amazing actress, so we really wanted to explore this brave person with this optimistic outlook put into the center of all this peril. We wanted to challenge her in every conceivable way — by putting her in jeopardy, by tempting her with power, by making her a vampire. But we ultimately knew that the good aspect of Cami would win over, and unlike every other vampire I’ve ever seen, Cami got control of her vampire side. She never killed anyone [as a vampire]. She never gave in completely to the darkest aspect of herself, and in episode 19 she talks a little bit about how she did not want Aurora to win by making her into this vengeance-fueled monster.

Cami’s last major arc on the show was her becoming a vampire, so obviously the writers felt it was important for her to go through that before she died. What do you think being a vampire taught her?
I think it taught her how to maybe not judge a book by its cover, for a lack of a better word. I don’t know if that’s the right terminology, but she expected so much from Klaus and she thought it was as easy for him as it was for her, but then after becoming a vampire, I think she saw the world from his eyes and realized how hard it is to rein in your darkness, especially when you turn into a creature of the night. When she became that, she could understand him in a way that she couldn’t before and hopefully, through her understanding him, he was allowed to understand himself, because that’s what the show is about, really, is Klaus understanding himself and maybe someday redeeming himself and maybe someday turning into a hero instead of a villain.

Do you have a favorite Cami story from all three seasons?
I loved so many of her stories. If I had to choose one, it would be her story with her uncle. I really liked working with Todd Stashwick and I miss Cami just being the ingenue human sometimes with her long hair and her flowy dresses and just really getting to play that wide-eyed, innocent girl. And then over the years, she became a little more tough and a little less ignorantly optimistic. I do miss her optimism in season 1.
