Dearest TVD Family,
I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell te that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there's still so much più to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in Amore not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best Friends I'll ever know and built an extended family I will Amore forever.
There's più to come before we avvolgere this up, and I promise you'll get to hear all about my experiences over the successivo mese as we approach the season finale (I have dato an exclusive interview for the June issue of SELF Magazine that I am excited for te to see!), but until then I invite te to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert's life and unisciti me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her -- and to my work family -- as I sposta on to the successivo chapter of my life. I want to share this goodbye with all of te (this weekend's pictures were just the beginning). You, the wonderful fandom who gave più love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in LA to audition for 'that Twilight TV show.' ;-) I Amore te all. Fasten your seatbelts. If te think te know what's coming, te don't.
