Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and several Vampire Diaries Executives, including Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, look back on 100 episodes in this feature from THR. Check out what the trio had to say about the “Fan Frenzy”. Thanks to THR for sharing the above BTS photo from tonight’s episode as well.
A FAN FRENZY
SOMERHALDER: Hot Topic did mall tours where we would go to a store and do a fan Q-and-A. Our first one was at a Georgia mall food court; we got out of the bus and there were 5,000 screaming girls. We went to London in 2009 and again had this crazy pandemonium, and we hadn’t even aired in the U.K. yet.
DOBREV: I remember when The O.C. came out. If you didn’t watch The O.C., you had nothing to talk about, and somebody told me that’s what our show was to people in high school and junior high. Some people would tell me, “My friend has your poster on their locker.” I can’t believe I’m that girl now.
WESLEY: We’re in our own bubble in Atlanta, but people started coming up to me on the streets, old and young, male and female. People were obviously watching this thing and it became a big deal pop-culturally.
