We’re not the only ones who were bummed to see Alaric go. When Clevver TV asked Matt about Alaric’s goodbye, he admitted it was sad. “It was emotional. You know, The Vampire Diaries cast and crew are definitely my family,” says Matt.
Then Matt gave us a teensy bit of hope when it comes to seeing Alaric again on TVD. Because Cult films in LA, he’s been hanging out with executive producer Julie Plec quite a bit. “I can honestly say it has not come up,” Matt says of another ghostly cameo, but “I’m certainly open to it.”
But Matt has another grand idea for reuniting the TVD cast: have some of his old castmates come to his new show. He pitched an idea — which was sadly rejected — to have Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood) and Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan) show up on screen at a party for the cast of Cult (the show-within-the-show version).
“It’d be a really great if you had a couple of the Vampire Diaries [actors] try to get into the party with a plus one and whatnot,” Matt said, explaining his vision. “And they couldn’t get in, and then I bump into them, and they did like a double take.”
