In 2017, he looked back at his time on the show and admitted that the project, created by Julie Plec, had completely changed his life.

“We did a Hot Topic signing event at a mall in Kennesaw, Georgia. It was the first time we’d been to any sort of fan-related event, and the show hadn’t even aired yet. We walked into a mall and there were like 3,000 screaming fans hanging over the railings, trying to jump past security to grab us,” he told Entertainment Weekly at the time. “We were all just looking at each other, sitting in front of these kids doing a Q&A and I think that was the day it all set in.”

We all started this show, almost all of us, in the midst of some sort of life turmoil, whatever it may have been. And somehow through these eight years we’ve patched ourselves up and are now ready to face the world again.”
