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.”
Day two of The Vampire Diaries Official Convention at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas saw an increase in fans and a drop in average age. There were still quite a lot of fans in an older age bracket but on average this new set of devotees were in their teens.
By the end of day one of The Vampire Diaries Official Convention there was a Karaoke night in the main theater where Micah Parker, Chase Coleman and Paul Telfer all participated in the event. Names of volunteers, along with songs, were given to organizers and when their names and song title appeared on the screens on each side of the stage they went up to perform with the three actors.
What a difference a convention makes, The Vampire Diaries Official Las Vegas Convention, 2014 on day one was a very intimate and friendly affair. Volunteers and attendees all mentioned that things will pick up as the weekend approaches, so the intimacy may disappear. But on the first day at the Rio Hotel and Casino, the atmosphere almost felt like a family reunion versus a big event.
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.
