Getting inside Ballroom 20 at this year’s San Diego Comic-con was almost as impossible as getting inside Hall H. I have no patience for lining up for 10 hours just to see one panel which is why I was glad when WB Extra announced that the cast of The Vampire Diaries would actually be on their stage, out in the open for everyone to see! The best part is that the majority of the TVD fans were all either at Ballroom 20 or lined up to get in already so the stage wasn’t crowded or insane at all.
Best part? I got to take a photo snap with Paul Wesley, who plays Stefan Salvadore. I wished it had been Ian Somerhalder, but ‘beggars can’t be choosers’, I guess… haha! This proves my point though – when you spend most of your day lined up, you miss all the cool stuff that goes on in and around the convention.
More photos below, including pictures of Paul Wesley checking out the Batmobiles.
Before appearing on stage, Wesley got to touch the Batmobiles one by one and he even got to climb inside the Tumbler. Damn, lucky famous people…
The interview on stage was less than 20 minutes, but it was cool to see the cast members up close. Nina Dobrev is especially stunning in person too.
Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev, Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig and Michael Trevino represented the TVD cast this year the convention.
