Though they’re huge stars now, the cast of The Vampire Diaries didn’t all start out that way. Most were relative newcomers to TV, but they still had a few roles under their belts. Check out Nina Dobrev’s (Elena Gilbert) shopping spree, farm boy Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood), red-headed Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes), and more. My, how they’ve grown!
