Ian Somerhalder Thanks TVD FB Fans From Mardi Gras

The official facebook page of The Vampire Diaries has reached 20 million fans and they posted a video of Ian Somerhalder straight from Mardi Gras to thank them. Date: March 6, 2014; Categories: Cast and Characters, News, Videos.

the night desk’s insight:
After the official ‘Vampire Diaries’ facebook page reached 20,000,000 fans, Ian taped a personal thank you while celebrating Mardi Gras in his home town of New Orleans. An amazing feat to be sure, and obviously very appreciated by the cast as a whole, an Ian specifically. Great job, you guys! This should keep our favorite show around a few more seasons… that is unless Elena returns and drinks up all the vamps left in the world. Have you liked “The Vampire Diarires’ on facebook yet?

Non-Fiction Spotlight: The Romance of Dracula

The Romance of Dracula by Charles E. Butler is, in his own words, “a personal journey of the Count on celluloid.” I think that is a perfect way to describe this book, which is part film critique, part essay, and part personal reminiscence. Like Mr. Butler, I love the vampire film genre as well as…
