A lot of the cast members can speak different languages.
Nina Dobrev can speak Bulgarian, Paul Wesley can speak Polish, and Kat Graham can speak Spanish, French, and Hebrew.
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder weren't the only "Vampire Diaries" actors to have a relationship IRL.
Zach Roerig and Candice Accola dated in 2011. Paul Wesley married Torrey DeVitto also in 2011, though they unfortunately divorced in 2013. Shortly after, Wesley dated Phoebe Tonkin, who appeared on the show for a few episodes as Hayley Marshall and "The Vampire Diaries" spinoff "The Originals". The couple split after nearly four years of dating. Wesley is now married to Ines de Ramon.
Mystic Falls Or Fell's Church?
While in the TV show the town that Elena, Damon, and Stefan live in is called Mystic Falls, it's actually called Fell's Church in the book series.
Stephen Amell Auditioned For Two Parts
Actor Stephen Amell auditioned for two parts on "Vampire Diaries": Elijah and Mason.
While he wasn't cast on this show, he is no stranger to the CW as he appeared on "90210" and "Arrow".
The Actor Who Plays Matt Donovan Is A Dad
Actor Zach Roerig, who plays Matt Donovan, is a dad in real life.
Back in 2013, Roerig won full custody of his daughter after her mother was sentenced to federal prison.
Isobel Flemming's Phone Number Actually Worked
In season 2 of the show, we are introduced to Isobel Flemming, Elena's biological mother. In one episode, Elena dials Isobel's phone number after finding it on someone else's phone.
What a lot of fans didn't know, though, is that the phone number actually worked. Fans could call it and hear a recording by Elena, Stefan, and Damon.
Elena Is Supposed To Have A Sister
In the TV adaptation of "Vampire Diaries" the only sibling Elena has is Jeremy.
In the books by L.J. Smith, Elena also has a four-year-old sister named Margaret, whom she visits as a vampire after she dies.
Jeremy Gilbert is the coolest and most protective little brother we've ever seen.
Actor Steven R. McQueen, who plays Jeremy, also comes from a cool family. His grandfather is the legendary Steve "King of Cool" McQueen.
No wonder he's such a stud.
The Salvatore Brothers Were Almost The Whitmore Brothers
Whether you were Team Damon or Team Stefan, you can admit that "Vampire Diaries" would not be the same without the Salvatore brothers.
According to reports, the CW producers almost changed the brothers' last name to Whitmore because they thought Salvatore was "too Italian." In the end, though, they decided to keep the original name in L.J. Smith's books.
Ashley Tisdale As Elena Gilbert?
Our favourite female vampire Elena Gilbert was almost played by Ashley Tisdale.
The "High School Musical" alum was initially offered the part but turned it down for a lead role in the CW's "Hellcats", which only lasted one season.
While we love the idea of a Sharpay Evans-esque vampire, we can't imagine anyone but Nina Dobrev playing the part.
