Here's what the cast of 'The Vampire Diaries' looks like a decade on from its premiere

There have been countless vampire movies released over the years, but few blood-sucking tales have had success on TV like The Vampire Diaries. To put its popularity into context, over the years, it has been nominated for a whopping 115 awards and won 37 of them, as per Wikipedia.

Now, the hit CW show is a decade old, and in celebration of the love triangles and heart-stopping twists it's treated us to over the years, we've compiled a list of then and now pictures of its very famous cast, who, surprisingly, aren't immortal - even if they look that way.

Check out the trailer for classic vampire movie, The Vampire's Kiss, below:

Running from 2009 to 2017, the show won legions of fans and helped to catapult many unknown actors to international fame.
