It’s been too long for some of us TVD fans. Okay let’s face it for all of us. However, I just saw something that will make everyone of you want to die next.

Yes, like for most of you, who ever FELT. WANTED. HOPED. DREAMED and IMAGINED the day when Stefan played by the utterly AMAZING and hilarious Paul Wesley (@paulwesley) would bring to life the other side of a bad-ass Vampire and its blood lust effect, should watch this fan video by (@karldeeds). Its crafted for one thing, to ask yourself.

Will. You. Be. Next?

Squeee Season 3 -BRING IT! – *with hands waving and neck exposed happily* – Enjoy!

As we tweeted earlier, Deadline is now reporting that Joseph Morgan has officially signed on to play “Klaus”. TV Line’s Michael Ausiello was originally the one to break the news. Ausiello also reported the other day that Klaus will make his debut in the April 21st episode.

Joseph Morgan has now been signed to play him. Morgan, who’ll next be seen in the Henry Cavill-starrerImmortals, played supporting roles in the Peter Weir-directed Master and Commander, and Oliver Stone’s Alexander. He plays the title character in ABC’s upcoming miniseries Ben Hur. He was set for the show after more than 100 actors read for the role all over the world. Morgan’s deal was made by WME, Richard Koenigsberg Management and London-based Curtis Brown Group.

So…what do you guys think, now that we have official confirmation? Check out this fanmade video below showcasing Joseph Morgan in some of his previous projects.

TVD After Dark Recap 1/22/11

January 25th, 2011 | Posted by Ruthie in Fan Made Video | Miscellaneous | TVD Fansites - (Comments Off)

Thanks everyone for making TVD After Dark such a success once again. Since so many of you are asking for all of the links and what we discussed, I’ve done a quick temporary site so that you may see it all.  I may have missed a few things and I’m sure you will let me know. Next Viewing Party will be on Saturday, January 29th 2011, No more Thursdays, I only did it because of the TVD hiatus and well you guys demanded I did. Some very nicely and some with threats of being skinned.  I can’t believe it’s that enjoyable to see me in my living room blabbing about the Vampire Diaries. Lol! They were all with love I’m sure and it’s really appreciated. So I will see all of you on twitter for the Vampire Diaries return. @RomanciaLove

Discussion of Descent (Excerpt) Of course we couldn’t escape the Damon Salvatore shower scenes discussion and I tried very hard to get of this topic. LOL! I was as close to an online death as anyone wants to get with the shrills of screams in the chatroom over the whole Damon Bedroom and bathroom scene discovery. I’m just going to wait and drool like the rest of you. View More TVD After Dark Recap

Also, Eyecon has announced their TVD Fanmade Video/Film Contest. Here are some of the details:

Are you a budding filmmaker? Or the biggest TVD fan in the universe who happens to have a video camera? It’s time to showcase your creativity to the EyeCon crowd. We’re looking for fan made film submissions! Simply shoot a 10 minute or less video set inside the Vampire Diaries universe and send us a link to the video (YouTube or any web link that directs to the video will be fine). We are going to be offering up some prizes for the ones we think are awesome and showing them to the crowd at the convention!

  • The videos must be 10 minutes or less running time
  • They must be set in the Vampire Diaries Universe
  • They can be any film genre you would like (parody, comedy, drama, horror, etc.)
  • They will be judged on creativity, originality, style and effort
  • If you are notified as a winner, we will need a higher quality DVD or video file of the video to show to the crowd (since YouTube vids are lower quality)

Michael Trevino Birthday Project

January 4th, 2011 | Posted by Ruthie in Cast Birthdays | Fan Made Video | Michael Trevino - (Comments Off)

Please head over to Michael Trevino Online. Chloe is planning a really cool birthday video and would love for you to participate! Here are the deets!

As some of you may know, Michael’s birthday is just a couple of weeks away (January 25th) and I thought it would be a great idea to put together a video for him from his fans! I know it’s cliche, but it’s the easiest way to get him something fun and quick!

The last day to send in your birthday wish to Michael is January 18th.
(I will need a few days to piece the video together.)

1. Your video must be no longer than 20 seconds.
2. You CAN send in a picture instead of a video.
3.  PLEASE be appropriate. No obscene photos, gestures, etc.
4. Video/Picture must be emailed to MichaelTrevinoOnline@live.com. (Please put Michael Trevino Birthday Project in the subject line!)

You can also participate by signing Michael’s Groupcard HERE.

Also, please head over to the Michael Trevino Online gallery to view some gorgeous outtakes (like the one above) from Michael’s Nylon photoshoot he did with Candice Accola and Sara Canning.

haha! Don’t we all! Check out this adorable video from one of our awesome Vampire Diaries Twitter followers, Shannon (@mrsisomerhalder). She tweeted this to me last night and said she made it. So I’m assuming she stars in the video herself and is singing the song in the background. This is too precious for words. Of course we are all now wondering where she got the “Ian Blanket” from. EVERYBODY is going to want one!

We here at Vampire Diaries Online would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Ian Somerhalder! So many wonderful and amazing messages have been coming through on Twitter. Birthday videos, digital images, and even an entire site dedicated to Ian’s birthday from fans from Spain. Check out some of these amazing birthday wishes below, but first, what Ian REALLY wants for his birthday, his ultimate birthday wish is for the support of his new foundation, The IS Foundation. So if you can, send the suggested $32 in honor of his 32nd birthday, or whatever amount you can, Ian would appreciate it so much. Let’s change the world together with Ian! So many awesome things he will be doing with the money, and his official site will be launching soon!

NOW! Check out these amazing birthday videos for Ian!

The other day, Ian Somerhalder tweeted a video (see below) made by two sisters, Theressa and Stefanie. They are at the Miami Hot Topic event right now as I type this. Theressa, a film student and Stefanie, president of The Environmental Club at her school, made the following video to ask Ian and if he would be willing to answer some questions about the environment for her school. And guess what? He’s going to do it! Check out the video (@TVD_Chloe inspired ;)), and stay tuned for updates and pics from them and their experience later today! It’s possible they may be interviewing Paul Wesley too, not sure though.

Awesome interview with Michael Trevino via Clevver TV. He talks about what’s in store for his character on The Vampire Diaries, wolves and possible love interest for Tyler. We are totally Team Tonnie!! Check it out!

Also check out this really cool fanmade Team Tonnie video. I really hope they make this happen!

Check out Malese Jow’s Official Team Anna video in all it’s glory! As we mentioned before Malese Jow posted a video stating she wanted pics and videos to create a video to introduce her new song “Red Light”. Well here is the finished product, and I think I just might recognize some familiar faces in there. ;) And LOVE the new song Malese!

Wow, what an amazing day this has been!  Today Nina and the cast of The Vampire Diaries were celebrating her “On Set” birthday (tomorrow is officially Nina’s birthday).  So over the past two weeks Hannah (@TeamKatGraham) has been gathering pics and videos to create a special birthday video for Nina!  She had to split it up into two different videos because it was so long. I think she did an awesome job with them!! Thank you Hannah! Check ‘em out!

Also, here’s a short video that our good friend Jessica (@jesstravisl) was able to get during lunch today on set of The Vampire Diaries, yes, you heard that right.  Jessica and her daughter Brannan had visited the set to bring a gift for Nina, and was invited to stay for lunch with the cast!  Cool, huh?

And finally, Tony (@LiubovnikNaNina) created a wonderful Group Card for Nina, and I think you can still sign it, so head on over there! Click the picture below!
