When you’re bound to four other people by a spell, it can be hard to find alone time with your boyfriend. So Diana takes it upon herself to recreate some magic (of the romantic variety) by planning a date night with Adam on The Secret Circle this Thursday (The CW, 9/8c).
Spicing up their romance, though, won’t necessarily be easy, considering the two have been together for three years — which in high school terms roughly translates to a very long time.
“I don’t think they’re tired of each other,” says Thomas Dekker during a Vancouver set visit arranged by Warner Bros TV. “But ultimately, the oxymoron of what’s great about their relationship and what’s bad about it is [how] comfortable they are together.” The two have an “unspoken language” and an ability to really be “at ease” with each other, but it comes with a downside. “It’s not necessarily exciting in that same way [that it used to be],” continues Dekker. “It’s sort of like a long marriage. Maybe in teen years, that’s what it is.”
For Shelley Hennig, it’s that “really strong and long history” that make Diana and Adam a couple to root for — despite Adam and Cassie’s pull toward each other. “Diana and Adam have a really special connection and a really great relationship, regardless of what’s happening with Cassie,” she says, comparing the couple’s romance to The Notebook and Sweet Home Alabama, movies where you find yourself wanting the heroine to reconnect with her first love. “I don’t know about you, but when I watch, I always want them to go back to their roots,” she explains.
