vampire diaries nylon

You recognize the people on this cover of Nylon as from the cast of THE CW’s show THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. And they may be sparkling, but not like those Twilight vampires!

Nina Dobrev Thinks We All Have Secret Vampire Desires (to bond over!): “When the show first started… you automatically thought ‘Twilight,’ ” she said. “But once you continue, there’s a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper… It’s about letting everyone know that we’re different but we all respect each other.”

Who Ian Somerhalder Wanted to Play on Lost: “This is gonna be the coolest character on television. There was no doubt about it. It reminded me of Sawyer, Josh Holloway’s character on Lost. He was always the character I secretly wished I could play.”

Paul Wesley on Twilight:
“Do I think the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for Twilight? No.”
