The Vampire Diaries Cast: Before They Were Stars

at .

The Vampire Diaries cast has always been pretty, but it's also enjoyed a pretty impressive road to stardom.

One actor starred beside Colin Farrell in his first role in a critically acclaimed movie by Steven Soderbergh... another graced the halls of Degrassi... two were on Everwood... and two got their start on soap operas.

One actor was a redhead and another was in a movie with a well-known redhead.

So many similarities, but only one confirmation of previous supernatural activity - in the form of werewolves!

Where did these actors and actresses come from before landing in Mystic Falls? Prepare for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 and find out now:

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie, will haunt me, forever.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
