Michael Malarkey Had Never Heard of 'The Vampire Diaries' Before Auditioning

The Vampire Diaries is among the best series to properly include fantasy elements such as vampires and werewolves. The popular CW drama continued the time-honored tradition of vampire and human love romances popularized by shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and True Blood.

TVD ran for eight seasons, from 2009 to 2017, and was set in the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia, where supernatural beings like vampires and werewolves thrived. And while the series was so popular, Michael Malarkey, one of the cast members, had never heard of it before auditioning.
