Some people can’t wait to get away from their co-workers after eight hours together. Then there’s the cast of The Vampire Diaries. Despite the fact that they spend tons of time together on set, Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) tells OK magazine that they love to hang out in their free time as well. Based on all the Q&A sessions we’ve seen them do at fan conventions, it always seemed like the cast was having a blast and truly enjoyed each other’s company, but it’s nice to have the confirmation.

“We go to dinner a lot as a cast together so I really love that,” she said. “I love food and I love family. We have these huge, long table dinners and they’re really fun.” Aw, family-style dining! Adorable!

But the cast does more than just take meals together — sometimes they vacation together. Kat said, “Candice [Accola] rented a lake house last summer so we’d all go and barbecue and get on the inner tubes and ride around on the boat together. We have so many memories. We are a cast that really does love each other and hang out together.”

In fact, Kat told Wetpaint Entertainment last month that she and Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) are even doing some wedding planning together. We guess a joint ceremony would be too much to ask, though?
