There’s no question that the vampire train has taken off with a tremendous following. The Twilight enterprise serves as proof, but TV’s Vampire Diaries is garnering its share of fans, jumping on the dark band wagon.
“In 10 years, I’m going to look back and be very glad that I was part of the vampire phenomenon of the late 2000s,” Zac Roerig told On The Red Carpet’s Stuart Brazell at the recent Young Hollywood Awards. Roerig, who plays Matt Donovan on Vampire Diaries, and fellow cast member Steve McQueen, who plays Jeremy Gilbert on the show, said they’ve loved working on the hit show.
“I think it’s surreal we all started about a year ago and became a family, to have all this work pay off. We are honored and blessed to be here together and be such great friends,” McQueen said.
Candice Accola, who plays Caroline Forbes on the show, was celebrating her 23rd birthday the evening of the awards show May 13. She shares the same birthday as Twilight heartthrob, Robert Pattinson.
