Vampire Diaries How They Looked Then And Now


Hey everyone I started thinking about the pilot episode of our beloved The Vampire Diaries and started thinking, these guys have played the same roles going on 7 years now. I though to myself how fun it would be to do a comparison of our favourite TVD cast/characters. Lets take a look shall we?
The show was first brought to us on 10th September 2009. (wow that long ago). Lets go back in history and see what we find.

Ian Somerhaulder – Damon Salvatore.

2009 Damon:


2016 Damon:


As you can see our beautifully, handsome and sexy Damon, (Ian Sumerhaulder) has hardly changed at all in the past 7 years. In 2009 he had slightly more of a baby face and now is a little more rugged but OMG how this man makes my heart pound yum yum.

Paul Wesley – Stefan Salvatore.

2009  Stefan:



2016 Stefan:


Well as you can see 2009 the hero vampire Stefan (Paul Wesley) in 2009 was cute as a button, with his “Hero hair” and wonderful smile. He is much more manly in 2016 and has lost some of that baby-faced edge.For me he is  definitely more handsome with age.

Nina Dobrev – Elena Gilbert.

2009 Elena:


2016 Nina’s comeback:


Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) is returning to the show which is why she is obviously on this list of characters past and present. Not to mention she is a massive part of the the Vampire Diaries story from day one and still is. Nina has gone from a beautiful young girl to a stunning woman. I can’t wait for her comeback, but if the stories are true she wont be coming back as the beloved Elena (if you want to know more I will leave a link at the bottom of the page to the full Nina comeback story)

Kat Graham – Bonnie Bennet.

2009 Bonnie:


2016 Bonnie:


Look how young our Bon Bon (Kat Graham) looks in the top picture from 2009 its crazy how much she has changed, (not that that’s a bad thing) She’s a beautiful woman now all grown up.

Candice King – Caroline Forbes.

2016 Caroline:


Caroline Forbes (Candis King) went from annoying bratty teen to an amazing woman in the years she has been with The Vampire Diaries we have watched her grow from a pretty little buttercup to a stunning red rose.

Alaric Saltzman – Matthew Davis.

2009 Alaric:

2016 Alaric:


Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis) sorry to say as much as I love the guy went from all kinds of yum yum teacher to, hmm what happened as The Vampire Diaries continued. I think the clean look suits him much better than the manly look. what do you guys think?

Matt Donovan – Zach Roerig.

2009 Matt:


2016 Matt:


I personally prefer an all grown up Matty blue (Zach Roerig) apart from the funky hair doo, I think he has really bloomed into a very handsome man indeed.

There you have it, all the cast that stuck it out with us on The Vampire Diaries journey. I can’t believe we have to say goodbye this year.
