The Originals, which could be called The Vampire Diaries for adults starts season two on Monday October 6. The biggest news for fans of both shows is that Nina Dobrev is “defecting” from TVD to the spin off series to play “Tatia” in a flashback. Apparently she will be working with Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and Daniel Gillies (Elijah). The time period of the doppelganger episode is in “viking times” and according to Nina herself, Tatia is the very first doppelganger, the most pure and most “unaffected.”
Fan conventions, such as The Vampire Diaries 2014 Official Convention in Las Vegas September 12 – 14, are popular and a great chance to meet the stars who bring these shows to life. Like other conventions, the Star Trek Con earlier this year at the Rio Hotel and Casino and the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con at South Point Hotel and Casino the conventions vary in size and popularity.
