People have been obsessive about vampires lately, ever since Twilight. I will admit it, I am one of them.
Vampires exist everywhere. They appear in books, TV, movies, TV, and even music. The Vampire Diaries (CW) is the latest popular vampire show. Based on L.J. Smith. Although the book series is good, the television show does not follow the book as closely as it should. Elena is a young girl who has just lost both her parents in a tragic car accident. She meets Stefan, a mysterious boy she later begins to date. The town begins to see murders and believes it’s animal attacks. Elena discovers Stefan is actually a vampire. Then people start suspecting him. Damon, Stefan’s brother, carried out the attacks. Damon and Stefan have a rocky relationship because they were in a relationship with the same girl, Elena.
The TV series is based in part on the book. However, the storyline has been updated and many characters added. The Vampire Diaries has Steven R. McQueen portraying the character of Jeremy Gilbert. Sara Canning is Elena’s aunt Jenna Sommers. Katerina Graham plays Bonnie Bennett. Nina Dobrev, who played Elena Gilbert as the main protagonist, also played the role of Katherine Pierce, the show’s main antagonist.
