Welcome back to Humor Nation. Even though the Vampire Diaries is over, but there’s plenty of facts and trivia that the fans still aren’t aware of. There’s a whole lot that has happened behind the scenes during the fifteen years of the Vampire Diaries.
So Take A Look At 5 Behind The Scenes Secrets About Vampire Diaries That Fans Might Not Know
5. STEFAN VOICEOVER IN PILOT
If you have remember from the pilot episode, the voiceover of Stefan Salvatore makes it pretty evident that the show is the story of Stefan. He is the narrator of the Vampire Diaries. But you would be surprised to know that the voiceover was added at the last minute in the episode. From the audience testing, it became obvious that the interest of the audience didn’t arise until the supernatural happened on the screen.
The creators decided to pair the the footage of Vicki Donovan attack with the voiceover of Stefan. Kevin Williamson spoke to EW where he revealed that initially it felt like an average CW show where a young teenager is writing in her diary, she has a troubled brother, and the parents are no more. The vampire doesn’t show up on the screen until the 8 or 11 minute of the episode. During the audience test, they became invested only during the moment when Stefan compelled the woman behind the front desk. Before that moment, the audience was pretty dead.
4. THE BLOOD SNACK
A human needs food and a vampire needs blood to survive, but what if the blood is the food? Well, the fake blood that has been used on the Vampire Diaries was quite edible. As TVD needed plenty of fake blood. The task of creating the blood was given to Conor McCullagh who was the special effects artist. He created the blood using salt, peppermint, and corn syrup which made it edible. As the shooting for the scenes could take long hours so if an actor ever felt hungry, they could munch on the vampire snack.
