Vampire Diaries Casts Steven R. McQueen

Wasn't her name ELLENA? and she had a 4 year old sister in the book. ok so you change things up a bit but if making a show out of a book wouldnt it be wise to keep the characters the same or atleast close to the same? I will watch the first show but i just hope that it doesnt turn out to be a big dissapointment like the TWILIGHT move was :( It really lets me down when i get so into a book and a movie is made from it and then its nothing like the movie. I just wish i had the money and connections to remake that movie i would.....hummmmmm
