The Cast of The Vampire Diaries on Their Most Important Things
In honor of World Refugee Day, which was June 20, The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham and her co-stars paired with UNHCR, the UN's refugee agency, to bring awareness to the struggles refugees go through when fleeing their homes. By discussing their "most important thing" the cast hopes others will think about what's important in their lives and realize that those attempting to escape violence or persecution often leave everything behind to do so. Kat chose her engagement ring. Ian Somerhalder chose his cats, but he also put his survival skills (maybe he learned them on Lost?) to good use. "If I was a refugee and I could only take one thing I would take my cats and I would wrap them very tightly and I would stick a lighter and a cell phone in between them so that I could find things, call people, and make fire so that I could eat," he said. See what Candice Accola and other TVD-ers (and one Glee-er!) had to say. If you want to learn more about UNHCR and World Refugee Day, visit the website here.
