No Vampire Diaries Perks For Canadian Fans Really Bites


TVDCFP aka TVD Canadian Fangirl Pout

First came the Hot Topic Cast Tours in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New Jersey.

Then Seventeen Magazine ran a Vampire Diaries set visit contest (for US residents only).

In July, Australian fans will be treated to a Hub Productions’ Vampire Diaries Fan Event with guests Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Nina Dobrev (Elena), and Paul Wesley (Stefan) attending.

And now this week, ITV2 announced they’re offering UK fans of our beloved show a chance to win a 3-day all-expenses paid trip to fly across the ocean to Atlanta, Georgia to visit the set of The Vampire Diaries AND have the show’s make-up artists turn them into vamp vics.

Sounds bloody fang-tastic if you’re a Vampire Diaries fan residing in the US, Australia or the UK.

Lucky ducky you.

If you’re a Vampire Diaries fan residing in Canada (like yours truly), however, this really bites.

That’s right. I said it bites. And it does. *cue TVDCFP (as demonstrated by moi above)*

Yes, despite the Pilot episode being filmed here in Vancouver, BC and some serious Canadian talent on the show’s roster – Nina Dobrev (Elena), Sarah Canning (Aunt Jenna) –  Canadian TVD fans have yet to reap a single on-home-turf-promotional-perk for their devoted following of the show. So riddle me this vamp fans, event organizers, magazine editors and Vampire Diaries Powers-That-Be:

What DOES a girl have to do to get Canada on this TVD fun-fan-perks brigade?

Btw (that’s by-the-way)  got blood if it helps. 😉

  1. Somebody needs to find out if there are any event coordinator or something there that can pull something together, or at least a store (like Hot Topic/HMV) that can sponsor something. Nina will be there for the Much Music Awards June 20th, wonder who else will be there with her? Somebody really needs to get on this! I’m right there with ya babe! 🙂

  2. I know, rite?
    It’s so darn hard for us Canadians to get any perks 😦
    Sara canning is in Toronto right now and tht is a huge opportunity for me to meet her at the after-party, but i can’t go 😥
    and i guess we both know how rarely we get some TVD action. I say, let’s start a petition for bringing the TVD craze to Canada 😛

  3. Ahh..how cute of a face is that! Yes cue drumroll! I now proclaim today is TVDCFP BALBWC Day!! I do agree that there needs to be some campaign of which the cast gives Canadian fans the opportunity to get in on the bloody fun. I’ll cross my fingers and hope that a certain hot vamp will arrive! I love you and keep these fangtastic posts coming. 😉

  4. I have been trying to organize something like this in Toronto for months now, but keep reaching dead ends. I even have a few potential venues that would be perfect for holding such an event.

    I think that the Canadian network, CTV, would have to be on board in some capacity. And there would have to be at least 1 major sponsor.

    I’ll keep working on it, and if it happens, you will be one of the first gals to know!

  5. This really does suck. I hope they have some, ANYTHING here in Canada. As of right now, we’re deprived from getting some TVD action.
