How time flies. Can you believe that it’s already been almost five years since The Vampire Diaries first came into being? Season 1 premiered on The CW on September 10, 2009, but the pilot for the show was filmed months before that.

Leading lady Nina Dobrev (Elena) seems to be feeling a bit nostalgic, because on October 4, the 24-year-old actress posted a throwback photo on Instagram that shows she and co-star Kat Graham (Bonnie) back from their days shooting the very first episode.

#TBT to #TVD pilot with @katgrahampics @katgraham Holy moly cow that was almost 5 years ago!!” she wrote.


At the time, both girls were still teenagers. Now, they’re in their mid-20s and all grown up. Granted, they haven’t changed dramatically, but Nina and Kat both do look different than they did back in the day.

Between Nina and Kat, which Vampire Diaries actress do you think has changed the most in five years? Head below to sound off.
