I’ve been a huge fan of the originals and the vampire diaries for years, and I know I’m not famous, but that’s what tv is for, right? New faces from new places. I learn quick, and can follow direction well. We did The Dark Castle for acting 3, and when our Lumina dropped out, I already had the lines. I can also sing! I live in MT…

    My name is Emily Oliver and I am a huge fan of the CW especially Julie Plec. It would be an amazing opportunity to work for and help bring to life her exceptional writing skills. I have a slight background in theatre as well as radio personality. The casting directors can email me if they have any questions or need head shots.

  11. Isabelle Fretheim

    I would love to be a part of this new series, because the plot is suspenseful and captivating. Similarly to the vampire and wolf themes blowing up in popularity a few years ago, it seems the virus and apocalyptic-like scenarios have done the same, if not more so. It would be extremely exciting to be a part of a CW series that brings these popular themes to life. I am a huge fan of most of the CW’s hit shows including all four of those mentioned above so I know this one will be just as amazing! Additionally, being an aspiring actress it would be a thrill and a dream to make it onto the types of shows that I myself enjoy. 🙂

    so I am okay with being in front of crowds of people, I did many plays as a child, Christmas plays, Talent shows, etc. I feel like this would be a good fit for me, considering I am better at dramatic films rather then family fun. I hope to hear back from you soon! 🙂

    I’ve been reading these comments and they’re all very similar. I want to stand out so I will tell the whole truth cliche or not. I loved the Vampire Diaries not just for the story, but the way that it was directed. I can only imagine how amazing this upcoming show will be. To be honest I have never acted on film, but I have been the lead in plays. I have always wanted to act and although that doesn’t mean I’m a good actor, I have always been told that I should act. Not just from my family but from many experienced theater people. My mom works for Toby Emerich and has worked with New Line Cinema for over a decade so I am familiar with film. I go to a private Quaker school and I have learned to be an out going and responsible person. I would love nothing more than to be on this show! Thank you so much for reading this
