The Vampire Diaries’ mid-season finale airs December 9th on The CW!



With one season left in The Vampire Diaries’ run, we decided it was time to start collecting everyone’s final diary entries. Every week during the final season, EW is asking those involved with the show to look back on one of their favorite moments from the series. So grab your tissues and join us on this trip down a vampire-filled memory lane.

This week, Sara Canning remembers the great Aunt Jenna…

The very first thing that popped into my mind about the show would be the first episode that we shot after the pilot, because everybody had moved to Atlanta and we were excited. I look back at us as these kids who were so excited about the potential of what the show could be. It was the first pilot I ever worked on and it was the first time I’d ever been a regular on a show. It was pretty incredible to move with this amazing group of people and to get to know a new city. It was the first time I’d ever lived in the U.S. We’d take trips on the weekends and we’d always be going out to the lake. I remember that first season, particularly the first few months and shooting before the show aired, as this really wild, exciting time. It was pretty special.

I loved the dinner party scene at the Salvatore house or the barbecue we hosted when Mason rolled back into town. I remember those being such fun days, just having a big group of us. I think we were playing Pictionary at the barbecue with Mason. I just remember those days so fondly. The cast is a group who’s so eager to laugh and prank and have a good time. I think I miss that most about the cast as an entirety — they just really want to have a good time. And they do. There’s a lot of darkness in the show so I think it’s really imperative that everybody be able to have that kind of light-hearted relationship as well.

I also loved when Jenna had no idea about the vampires because it made for a lot of great lines. It was always fun to play that, be one of the only people still in the dark about the goings on in Mystic Falls.

The day I found out Jenna was going to die was a really hard day, because I still had two and a half episodes left to shoot. I was really sad. I have such a better perspective on it now than I ever could have then because I understand so much about what makes great TV and how people become invested in characters and story lines, that there needs to be a real weight sometimes in order for a story to progress and for other characters to evolve. I don’t think I could’ve even understood then how important Jenna’s death was for Elena’s character, in particular, but at the time it was really hard.

I’ve luckily maintained a lot of really close friendships with a lot of people who worked on the show, both the cast and the crew. And the fans of this show are incredible because I still feel like a part of the show even though I haven’t been physically on the show in so long. One of the greatest compliments I’ve gotten from fans of the show is them saying, “I wish I had an aunt like Jenna.” That’s really cool. I thought she was such a great female role model for Elena and Jeremy, even though she was a little bit of a partier and she was trying to figure things out. I just loved how honest and transparent she was about everything.

I feel very lucky to have played her. It’s really nice to see that, even though she was only really around for two seasons, I think that she had some sort of lasting impact in the sense that her death really did affect particularly Elena and Jeremy and maybe Alaric too … hopefully. It was a great lesson for me near the beginning of my career about television and what makes exciting television. I feel really grateful for the kindness people have shown me and the outrage that people still express to me about her death. I feel really proud of them. Eight seasons is an incredible feat and I’m very happy to be a part of the family.

The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.



After seven long seasons, The Vampire Diaries has finally reunited Matt Donovan with his estranged father — but their road to recovery is only just beginning. TV Line has some interesting spoilers;

“Giving Matt those answers — Who is his father? Does he even exist? Why did he leave? — was important to us, because it was a dangling thread we’d never been able to tell a story about,” executive producer Julie Plec explains to TVLine. “I swear, all Zach Roerig does this season is cry, at least in his first few episodes.”
Adds Roerig, “Everyone has always wanted Matt to find some closure — with Penny’s death, or Vicki’s death, or even with the Elena thing at the beginning of the show — so he can finally understand why everything happened. … Matt’s a good dude, so I’m sure it’s hard for him to think, ‘Why wouldn’t my dad want to be a part of this? I’m badass!’”

Friday’s episode, during which Matt’s dad finally began to comprehend the depth of his suffering (“How did it come to this?”), marked the beginning of a long journey for the Donovan men.
“It’s sad if you think about everything Matt has been through, and that’s ultimately what he has to make his dad understand,” Plec explains. “It’s not just that he left, but the life he left Matt with took such a turn to sadness. That’s been the biggest struggle Matt’s had to fight against growing up.”

Roerig also extends kudos to the casting department for placing Joel Gretsch (NCIS, Witches of East End) in such a pivotal role.
“[Joel] could be my real dad, it’s crazy,” he notes. “He was born in Minnesota, not far from where my father was born in Minnesota — and the skin tone, and the eyes. He’s also just a really good dude and good actor; we really clicked and bonded well. … I like the idea of Matt not being a bastard. Whether it was tumultuous, or whatever issues there were involving his abandonment, at least people know that this is Matt’s dad — proof of his genetics. Maybe it’ll help Matt solve the mystery of why he feels so compelled to stay in Mystic Falls.”



Georgie’s death on Vampire Diaries reminded me of Katherine’s. Does this mean we could see Katherine again in hell? — Jules
Nothing would make me happier than seeing Katherine again in the show’s final season. And it sounds like that’s not completely out of the question. When asked if Katherine is in hell, showrunner Julie Plec says, “I will confirm nothing, but the visual similarities are not accidental.” Does that mean there’s hope? Maybe. One thing’s for sure: Hell is the focal point of what’s to come. “The big question of the season is: How do our characters fit in this world?” Plec says. “Are they all doomed? Is there a chance for redemption? Can you earn your way back out of a one-way ticket to Hell? And even characters that have been heroes, are they already marked? If so, what the hell are they going to do about it?”

Finally some news about The Originals! It looks like The Vampire Diaries’ Matt Davis will be visiting our vampire/hybrid friends in New Orleans, TV Line confirms;

The eighth episode of The Originals‘ upcoming fourth season — which premieres Friday, March 17 at 8/7c on The CW — will feature an appearance by Matt Davis, TVLine has learned exclusively. Alaric, whose twin daughters are currently caught in a siren’s crosshairs, pops up in order to deliver a priceless artifact to Elijah.

This marks the fourth time a character from The Vampire Diaries has appeared on The Originals: Tyler (Michael Trevino) made the jump in Season 1 to get revenge against Klaus, while Matt (Zach Roerig) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) both showed up in Season 3 for their own unique purposes.

Little else is known about The Originals‘ fourth season, save for a few details: Hayley, along with an all-grown-up Hope (now played by Summer Fontana), will track down the seven werewolf packs in order to save the Mikaelsons; more of Vincent’s backstory will be revealed; and Josh will get a new love interest in the form of Teen Wolf‘s Keahu Kahuanui.
We’ll also meet (at least) two new faces: Containment‘s Christina Moses will play a werewolf/ER doctor named Keelin, while Sleepy Hollow‘s Neil Jackson will play a mysterious vampire named Alistair.
