Jun 30th: 21 Actors Offer Their TV Characters One Piece Of Advice

Webby | Categories: News | Comment

2. Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert, The Vampire Diaries)
“Run. Like the wind. Get the fuck out of that town.”

10. Danielle Campbell (Davina Claire, The Originals)
“There is a saying: Trust, but verify. I think it really relates to Davina. She has been betrayed over and over to the point where she no longer trusts people and has shut herself off to the world. My advice would be to keep herself open to let people in. If she wants to be loved and have friendships, she needs to learn that the whole world isn’t out to get her. While she must be cautious, she can’t spend her life hiding.”

17. Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore, The Vampire Diaries)
“Take a step back, grow some balls, man up, go chop some wood, and be a lumberjack for a while.”

19. Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson, The Originals)
“You can’t save Klaus [Joseph Morgan].”
