This lucky blogger writes about her day as an extra on the set of the Vampire Diaries pilot. Sounds like she had a long but fun day. I’ve experienced being an extra before and it mostly a lot of “hurry up and wait”.
Below is an excerpt from her post.
so there was this scene that I was very close to the actresses and actors. I didn’t know who they were other than “oh they’re the main people!” One of the actresses I thought was pretty! I later found out her name is Nina Dobrev (playing Elena, the main character). The other cast were Paul Wesley (playing Stefan), Katerina Graham (playing Bonnie) Candice Accola, (playing Caroline), Steven R. McQueen (playing Jermey, Elena’s brother) and I didn’t get to see Ian Somerhalder (should be playing Damon and the reason why I wanna see him because he was in LOST) though. It was cool to know that I was standing right next to them, well I didn’t really know until I got home and did my researches online :P haha!
