Klaroline is one of the most talked about and popular ships in not just the TVD Universe but in the history of television. The chemistry between Klaus and Caroline was off the charts. There are all the elements that make this love story an epic one. However, unfortunately, these two couldn’t end up together.

The role of Julie Plec has been very significant whether it’s the casting process for the show, or it’s regarding the storylines. There’s plenty of TVD trivia relate to Julie Plec.

  • Did you know it was around season 4 of the Originals when TVD was focused on the Armory storyline, Plec thought about how it could make a boarding school? Julie also had this idea of turning Alaric into a wise Dumbledore.
  • Did you know Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson didn’t intend to make Damon a hero. But when the fans began rooting for the character. They were surprised at the response as Plec commented saying ‘we have created the model couple for toxic masculinity’. It was the fans’ response that eventually played a significant role in the changing the direction of Damon’s character.
  • Did you know Matthew Davis who played the role of Alaric Saltzman, father figure to Elena Gilbert, has a fan fiction where the characters of Elena and Alaric are together. When Plec was asked about this fan fiction, she responded saying that it is highly inappropriate and totally unacceptable.

Even though the actors have been cast on the basis of their merits and talents. But the creators could have chose their favorite for a certain role. David Gallagher nearly played the role of Klaus. But Plec and others were convinced with the ability and understanding of Joseph Morgan who had read LJ Smith’s novels. Similarly, Plec is an immense fan of Pedro Pascal who was so close to playing Marcel Gerard, but again Plec and others felt Charles Michael Davis was just made for that particular role.
