If you open a pack of Vampire Diaries cards, you will become my wife's favorite card blogger. Coincidentally, I would still retain my spot as her seventh favorite.
They film(ed?) Vampire Diaries in Covington, GA, just down the street from where I used to live. They had production signs up all the time and downtown Covington was occasionally half-closed for filming.Before you ask - no, I never saw anyone from the show, at least that I would recognize. The only cast member on the list I'm familiar with is Arielle Kebbel. I've never even seen the show, though I had originally intended on watching it to recognize the locations. I hear it's pretty good, too.
