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 is based came out a decade before the Twilight books, so more accurately, Twilight 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.
