I am very much for everyone who fought for the possibility and for me (you know who you are), everyone who worked so hard for this show and everyone who watched it over and over again and made it part of their grateful lives. This show has enriched my life more than anything in my career and will live on in my heart. We are a family and I will miss you guys. Thanks to the incredible cast and crew, Kevin, Julie, ‘Warner Bros.’, ‘The CW’ and the most loyal fans the world has ever seen. Wow, what a ride.
And Paul Wesley, who played Stefan Salvatore, also thanks for the great moment: “Playing ‘The Vampire Diaries’ changed the course of my life, to say the least. I am more than happy with the experiences that I have had and the lessons that I have learned in the last seven years ”.
