In the years following Sara Canning’s departure from “The Vampire Diaries,” the actress has remained just as important to the show’s loyal fan base. She shared what it’s like interacting with this dedicated group of supporters.
“Oh, it’s wild. It’s really wild,” she said. “I was at a comic con recently and a few of us were there, a few of the actors, and we kind of looked at each other and went, ‘What are we doing here?’ Yeah, it’s really lovely. I’m quite grateful for it.”
Despite moving on professionally — including starring in the new horror flick “Superhost” — The CW series will always be a part of her life, Canning said.
“It is a weird sort of brain split to do when you’re just sort of marching forward in all these years, especially because I was only in the first two seasons. I’ve just been doing other work and making other work happen, and it’s always a nice surprise to return to that world and that fan base.”
Canning revealed to The List that she does have trouble recalling some of the finer details of her time on “The Vampire Diaries” when asked about the show at events.
“It’s so funny though, because if I’m doing a panel or something, some of the questions I’m like, ‘I don’t remember,'” she said. “Because it’s so long ago, 12 years ago, or something that we started that show, but I remember the feeling of it so much more than some of the specifics, and it’s really nice. It’s surprising and really nice.”
“Superhost” is available on VOD, Digital, DVD, and Blu-ray.
