“I mean, eight years, you know, eight years of my life. I feel like I’ve spent more time as a character than myself.”
“I feel like I’ve given that show, and I hope the fans who watch it, eight years of my life and I’ve invested a lot in it and sacrificed a lot of time with my family, including time working with the refugee agency of the UN, doing my activism. All of that has to be put on hold when you’re on a 22-episode series for eight years.”
“So as thankful as I am — and I mean thankful because I grew up from that show, I became who I really am in my twenties because of that show — for me, yeah, the door is closed.”
The Vampire Diaries may have come to an end as a supernatural drama, but now it is the vampire universe itself that is culminating its story with the conclusion of Legacies, where some characters from the franchise will surely appear.
