The Vampire Diaries cast is one good-looking group of people. The fact of their genetic blessings really can’t be overstated, especially when the gang is gathered for one of The CW’s signature promo shoots. Check out the behind-the-scenes photos!


“Hangin' with the pretty folk. @cwtvd,” TVD executive producer Julie Plec tweeted Sunday, along with a group shot of her cast looking, yes, pretty. Julie also shared a photo of the camera shooting a ruggedly handsome Paul Wesley (Stefan), looking broody as smoke rises up around him. “Hot man in smoke. #cw #paulwesley,” she captioned the pic.

Michael Trevino (Tyler) also got in on the behind-the-scenes tweeting, sharing a photo of co-stars Michael Malarkey (Enzo) and Kat Graham (Bonnie) hamming it up for the cameras, along with the caption: “Season 6 promo photoshoot w/ @mkmalarkey & Kat Graham. It's too early for all this…”

The promotional shoot wasn’t just for TVD! The Originals cast was there, too, looking similarly beautiful. “Huge promotion shoot for #TheOriginals season 2 today!! @CW_network,” Danielle Campbell (Davina) tweeted excitedly.

Sebastian Roche (Mikael) joined in on the enthusiasm, sharing this goofy photo of himself with Paul, Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley), and Daniel Gillies (Elijah), captioned: “Who are all these crazy people?” Gotta love this crazy supernatural family!
