The Vampire Diaries -- FIRST LOOK

Here are some first look pictures The Vampire Diaries, set to debut Fall 2009 on The CW.

Pictured left to right: Ian Somerhalder as Daman, Nina Dobrev as Elena, Paul Wesley as Stefan.

The show is based on LJ Smith‘s book series. Stefan is described as “gloriously, amazingly, epically beautiful young man” who is actually a 200-year-old vampire who has a strong connection with Elena. His brother Damon, the evil of the two, has also taken a liking to Elena.

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays @ 8PM ET/PT (right before Supernatural).

I’m getting tired of these damn angsty vampire movies!!!!

Why can’t someone just create an original mythical creature idea instead?!

I think Ian was cast well as Damon, but the chick playing Elena should really be blonde. Is it really so hard to find a blonde in Hollywood? And that Stefan guy really ain’t as hot as he’s supposed to be. Still, I read and suffered through the books so I could watch this show, so hopefully it’ll be good.

lol. i know nina through some of my friends who are on degrassi, and i like her but no way am i saying she’s a good actor (she is growing in the business). she’s a great friend though :). lol. her shenae, jaimie, giovanni, aubrey, sarah, raymond, stacey, adamo, scott, the whole gang (all my friends who get extra gigs on the show. lol.) i hate the show, but i gotta support them. it’s good when they have work.

original degrassi is better.

wtf a twilight knockoff how pathetic! stealing the whole vampire idea…. lameee

not stealing the idea i mean trying to being it back cause they think twilight fans will watch it

@Ariana:
Bohoo! Even if it would try to profite from the vampire buzz, Twilight sucks anyways!

TWILIGHT, TRUE BLOOD, VAMPIRES @ 05/21/2009 at 4:21 am

Yes, Stephanie Meyers didnt invent Vampires. Everyone knows that!!
But…What Stephanie did was tell a story unlike what was already out there. Hence…why it became a hit. I know people get angry and say…this was written first, that was written later. But who cares, isnt it about the story not what came first? Also…I dont know how people can say Steph Meyer copied ideas from other writers when this is how it all began…..

“I woke up (on that June 2nd) from a very vivid dream. In my dream, two people were having an intense conversation in a meadow in the woods. One of these people was just your average girl. The other person was fantastically beautiful, sparkly, and a vampire. They were discussing the difficulties inherent in the facts that A) they were falling in love with each other while B) the vampire was particularly attracted to the scent of her blood, and was having a difficult time restraining himself from killing her immediately. For what is essentially a transcript of my dream, please see Chapter 13 (“Confessions”) of the book.” Stephanie Meyer

Personally, I’ve never read Vampire Diaries. If it isn’t successful its not just because people are comparing it to Twilight etc, its because it just isnt as loved. There have been other Vampire stories, films, shows that didnt succeed (before Twilight) and thats because theres something lacking in the story, cast, cinematography etc.
And…Of course, there have been other successful Vamp stories, Buffy, Angel, True Blood, Van Helsing, Underworld, Dracula etc……

Also…Im sick of getting crap about the Twilight books.
I’ve read all the Twilight Series, and the first movie really wasnt good. For me…it completely butchered the book. Which is sad, because people who dont read and have just seen the film, bag out the books without realising the film isnt like the book at all. And..I wouldnt suggest it to tweens to read. It would def go over their heads.

BTW. Smallville moves to Friday.

…and what happened with Paul´s real surname??? I always knew him as Wasilewski. What is it with Hollywood and “real” english names???

If you guys were smart enough, VAMPIRE DIARIES was written WAY BEFORE Twilight… Actually in the 1990′s…

Anyways, I kinda don’t like the characters casted for the roles… -_-
NOT how I imagined it.

I agree with #59, I remember his surname Wasilewski and i’m surprised to see he changed it. Paul Wesley is such a common name, he should have stayed with his real name.

I have just recently starting reading The Vampire Diaries…and i knew the books were being made into a tv show. BUT Elena is meant to have blonde hair, pale porcelain skin and blue eyes o.0. Is that so hard to to find some girl with all that? This girl is pretty and all but they could have got her to dye to hair or have blue contacts in.

Plus i could imagine Ian as Stefan more so than this Paul Wesley guy. Once again, how hard is it to get the hair/eyes right? -_-

and to everyone who is saying it’s a copy of Twilight, i have some news for you. This series were made in the 90′s..wayyy before Twilight. The reason for making it as a tv show now is most likely because of the sucess of the Twilight books/movies.

I don’t know what to think of this now o.0

started** I’m sorry for the bad typo’s. =/

Wow. The “Epically Beautiful” one is the plainest dude around. They couldn’t at least cast a prettier face than the mean guy from season one of the OC?

O M G

THEY WONNA LOOK LIKE TWILIGHT BUT THIS IS NEVER GONNA HAPPENED 100% :D

TWILIGHT NOMBER 1

whats up with all the vampire shows twilight is the best one these
are so stupid

Oh lord… people can say ANYTHING about the cast, or the show, or the books, if they know what they’re talking about. But some Twilight fans act like Stephenie Meyer didn’t got all the Edward idea from Stefan… so get a clue. =)

even though you say it is wanna-be-twilight, the books were written before twilight.

looks just like that twilight ****. for sad ugly little girls..PASS!

I am a huge twilight fan and was thirsty for more vamp fiction and picked up vamp diaries. It was entertaining. I love love love twilight however I am open minded enough to realise the Meyer ripped off a lot of stuff from other vamp fiction, movies etc… its all about how she put it all together that made it so wonderful. I have read the books many times. My husband thinks I am nuts. With that said I love the vampire genre so much that I welcome the vamp diaries this fall. I will be watching. I suspect that many others will watch too. I predict that the show will live long on the CW.
I agree that Twilight brought vamps back into the mainstream but so who cares… we all just wanna be entertained so the networks are bringing us what they think we will like. I appreciate that in this case. Quit sliging mud people its a bit gratuitous I would say.
Michie

I LOVE those books.
But…I mean,the girl looks pretty,but she’s supposed to be BLOND…
And I really don’t find those two very attractive as Stefan and the brother.. =/
I don’t think I’m going to watch it…

@NOSFERATU:

i have heard of anne rice and i use to watch buffy all the time!!!! i have never heard of Bram Stoker though!!

i have to say that of these you listed only buffy can actually come close to compare to twilight! maybe if you actually read the books you would see HOW FREAKIN GREAT they are. your missing out

Buht to other twilight fans this isnt suppose to be like twilght these books came out before twilight. although stephenie did write the books before this buht it wasnt made into an acutally book until after these. i am looking forward to watching the series to see if ican compare to its books.

@deghg:

Smallville is an amazing show!!! so back off!!
its good to have an imagination and i love watching
smallville!! cant wait for the next season yeah thats
right ANOTHER season!!

A_proud_twilighter @ 05/21/2009 at 5:34 pm

@ignorance_is_your_biatch:
twilight was copie because of buffy if thats what ur tryin to say because twilight was actually a dream stephenie myer the auther had and she wrote it down. she wasnt actually goin to make it into a book until her sister told her she should. she actually had the whole book written in 2000 buht didnt actually put it out ther until 2006 and then it became popular just recently although i read it in 2006. before it was the popular thing to do.
