In spite of frigid temperatures that hovered in the low 20’s, the masses turned out in force at Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ on Saturday afternoon to meet and greet Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder — the stars of The CW’s immensely popular drama, The Vampire Diaries. A contingent of fans nearly 6,000 strong converged at the mall to attend the sold-out Hot Topic Vampire Diaries Mall Tour in-store event.

Wesley, a New Jersey native said he was glad to be back in his home state and flattered by the turnout, which he called “insanely surreal,” a sentiment echoed by his on-screen brother played by Ian Somerhalder who commented that “afterlife is kind of fun.”

“There’s a lot of support for the show and so hopefully we can just keep doing what we’re doing and people will like it as much as we do,” said Somerhalder.

Of course, the overwhelmingly positive response has its downside (or upside…depending on how you choose to look at it) as Wesley told PIX’ Andrew Ramos that Somerhalder often gets requests from female fans to bite them, something that Somerhalder wouldn’t get into as he jokingly cited the legal issues involved.

In terms of spoilers, the threesome were very cagey about revealing where the season is headed.

“Until we open (the tomb) we certainly don’t want to reveal anything. We don’t want to talk about what’s gonna happen because that’s really gonna be a big dramatic event,” said Wesley. “And because (executive producer) Kevin WIlliamson would cut our…,” said Somerhalder, finishing Wesley’s thought. ‘Nuff said.

Nina Dobrev, the attractive 21-year-old Canadian who plays both Elena and Katherine did add that “a lot is happening. Everyone’s kind of figuring out who they can trust (and) who they can’t trust because they don’t know who is and who is not a vampire.”
