You’ll love these secrets from the set!

After eight glorious seasons, The Vampire Diaries is coming to an end. We’re sadly (and reluctantly) going to be forced to say goodbye to our favorite vampires, witches, werewolves, and loads of other beings. Excuse me while I cry a little into my tub of Haagen Daz.

The question is left to who is going to be the new villain in the next and final season? Will Elana come back and will she reunite with Damon? WE NEED ANSWERS!

Before we will get any answers, lets reminisce on the good old days and take a look at these awesome facts about the show!

1. In the 2nd Season, Isobel’s phone number, 919-399-2507, was fully shown on the mobile phone screen. It turns out that it was a real-life phone number, and fans could give it a call to hear a recorded message from cast members!!

HOLY CRAP! I wish I knew that at the time. I also hope that some smart fan out there got a recording of that message. What would you do if you have Paul Wesley or Ian Somerhalder on the other end of the phone?!

2. Damon and Elena’s legendary hookup wasn’t supposed to happen until much later. The show’s writers wanted to make  us all suffer through three or four more seasons without it! Even crazier, they never wanted Elena as a human to be with Damon, but she gave the fans what they wanted!

Well, we already had to wait that long, how would they make us wait even more? #DelenaForeverrrr

3. Who said being a vampire would be easy? It took over three hours to make the actors look like vampires! The process consists of contact lenses, special personalized fangs, prosthetics, makeup and more to get that veiny, vampire look.

4. Who wasn’t jealous of Nina Dobrev’s ability to make her hair silky straight when she acts as Elena, and wildly curly when she plays Katherine? Fear not, it was all fake! Nina had to wear a wig every time she played Katherine’s character. Yep, those gorgeous locks were fake!

Doesn’t matter to us, she was everyone’s favorite doppleganger!
