You Need To See These Ca-Ute #TBT Pics Nina Dobrev Posted of 'The Vampire Diaries' Cast & Crew
Now that The Vampire Diaries has breathed its last breath (or didn't, seeing as, well, vampires), its stars are looking back on their fondest memories on set — and they want to share them with their dedicated fans who are just as emotional about the series coming to an end as they are.
Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley each turned their Instagram accounts into Memory Lane detours for a bit in honor of the series finale on March 10. Wesley posted throwback pics of him with Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, but Dobrev pulled out all the stops and posted full galleries to her Insta of her favorite cast and crew snapshots.
My undead brothers... I thought vampires weren't supposed to age. Lol. We definitely don't look the same after 8 years, but the make up helped. Raising a glass to celebrate 8 wonderful seasons together, it has been such a beautiful (and liver damaging) adventure knowing you all. Cheers family. 🍾🤗❤ #TVDForever
Somerhalder and Wesley got their own post, complete with shoutouts to her "undead brothers" and the good times they've shared (with an allusion to some epic partying, too). She then heaped praise on the crew that made The Vampire Diaries happen, and stressed how they may as well be as blood-related as the show's plot lines. "I grew up on this show that we joked was 'Twilight for TV," she wrote. "You are and will forever be my family."
My creators. I love you more than my parents. (Don't tell my parents). What a journey this has been. From the moment I met you, we became a family we began a journey that will last a life time. I'm eternally grateful for your support and love, this opportunity has been life changing and I owe it it all to you. Thank you for believing in me every step of the way. From the first audition, to the screen tests, to the fang fittings, to the time you made me a vampire, killed me (multiple times), brought me back to life (multiple times), put me into a coma and then brought me back one final time. I grew up on this show that we joked was "Twilight for TV". You are and will forever be my family. #TVDforever
Cue lots and lots and lots of tears. RIP, TVD.
