The world of teenage vampires is about to get a whole lot hotter with
tonight's premiere of The Vampire Diaries
at 8pm on the CW. The show
certainly has echoes of Twilight
, based on the ill-fated love affair
between a normal teen girl and a soulful, mysterious, brooding
vampire. However, the book series on which The Vampire Diaries
based came out a decade before the Twilight books, so more accurately,
was the rip-off.
When stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder attended
Comic-Con over the summer, BuddyTV was there and got the inside scoop
on the show and their characters. Check out our exclusive video below
featuring these three talking about love stories, soulmates and the fun
part of being evil.

As this video will suggest, Paul Wesley is even more charming and handsome in real life than he is as Stefan Salvatore, the noble vampire who falls in love with Elena. And even with some serious bed head that would make Robert Pattinson blush, Ian Somerhalder has piercing blue eyes and a devilish smile that make his funny yet truly wicked vampire Damon such a scary and entertaining bad guy.
The Vampire Diaries
airs Thursdays at 8pm on the CW.
