The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural–fantasy horror television series developed by Kevin Williamson, based on the book series of the same name by L. J. Smith. The series follows the life of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who falls in love with vampire Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), and soon finds herself caught in a love triangle between Stefan and his older brother, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), while the brothers are also being haunted by the past they’ve had with Katherine Pierce (also played by Nina Dobrev). The series also focuses on the lives of Elena’s friends and other inhabitants of the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia.
If you would like to watch Robert Pattinson before his Twilight days, Channel 5 will be showing Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire on October 31 at 6pm. I guess this is just to bring up the hype for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I wonder if they will they air the Twilight Saga movies before the release of Breaking Dawn…

The Courier Mail did an interview with Stephenie Meyer about the process of book-to-screen for her Twilight.
Seeing her characters brought to life on the big screen for the first time – Robert Pattinson playing Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan – was a surreal experience for Meyer.
“But really, that happened too when I had a chance to visit the film set,” she says.
“That was when that really hit me. I was sitting there at dinner the first night. Everyone came in costume, because they’d just done a photo shoot. I was like, ‘Wait a minute, these are imaginary people and here they are’ – very weird.”
