Yes. It’s that old Young Hollywood trick. Secondary (and by no means lesser) cast members, of a new series who aren’t in a lead role, have got to do something to up their press in the fame game. Otherwise, they’ll be forgotten as the horse bolts with the bigger stars.
Well, these crazy up and comers from the highly successful The Vampire Diaries new show on the CW network, managed to achieve that.
Because in Hollywood, there’s no such thing as bad press, any press is viewed as good press. Just get noticed and let the peeps talk about you is the axiom in a city of 20 million people like Los Angeles, I kid you not.
Living up to it, are these young actresses from the Vampire Diaries: Nina Dobreva, Candice Accola, Kayla Ewell, Krystal Vayda, Sara Canning and photographer Tyler Shields who were released from the Monroe County Jail after paying $1,000 bail bonds, each.
What did they do to warrant an arresting amount of attention? The coven of vampy actresses were booked for disorderly conduct last week for participating in a photo shoot. Their artist concept for the shoot, involved the girls dangling from the I-75 bridge at Rumble Road in Smarr, Georgia. I’m surprised this didn’t happen in North Carolina! That would have been much better!
One caller who complained about the girls claimed the Vampire diaries actresses were mooning traffic below them. Vampire Diaries version of a new moon? Kinda funny, but this is not Saturday Night Live! :) And so, the Young Hollywood careers of Nina Dobreva, Sarah Canning, Candice Accola et al, has begun! Nationwide and international news coverage today.
Imagine if you were torn between love with two vampire siblings! Conflict is the eseense of drama Aristotle once famously said, so this conflicting dilemma sort of doubles the Twilight hotness in tween entertainment.
The CW network is hoping to cash in on True Blood and Twilight Saga overflow by turning the hit book series, The Vampire Diaries, by author L.J Smith, into a TV series.
Love Sucks is the talgline for the new shows promos. Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are cast in the new vampire TV drama.
I know one the series screenwriters whose a script writing mentor here in Hollywood, as I mull over my first script idea in Hollywood. Their advice is, “start with slasher horror flicks, they are the easiest to write in Hollywood and sell.”
This makes sense, as the executive producer of The Vampire Diaries, Kevin Williamson claim to fame is that they executive produced Scream.
