CW ‘The Messengers’ Season 1 Episode 2 Spoiler: The Angels Now Have to Stop The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

From the Latin Post

"The Messengers" star Joel Courtney, who plays Peter on the show, has weighed in on the recent news regarding the departure of Nina Dobrev from "The Vampire Diaries."

In a recent article on Bustle, Courtney was quoted as saying, "She's the heart of the show."

"I hope that the show can go on, but I'm not sure what they can do. I look forward to seeing what they do, do," he added. 

He also stated that when it comes to the "Team" categories, he positioned himself as "Team Stefan." He explained that Stefan did not expect Elena to change. In the end, Elena did not have to regret being together with him. 

He said there was issues with Stefan. But it was arguably worse with Damon. 

"With Damon there was always this history, this baggage," he said. "Yeah, Stefan was a ripper, but... She didn't like [Damon] because of the crap he kept pulling. With Stefan he was always there trying to help her. Team Stefan!"

Courtney also had a few things to say about dating someone he works with, obviously referring to the romance between Nina Dobrev and co-star Ian Somerhalder.

"It's definitely a rough area to go into just because if things do go wrong, things don't work, things go badly, that's just drama," Courtney said.
