Listen, starting in 2008 shows got lit. I mean, there were just so many good ones to name! But one of my favorites, and apparently American Idol alum, Kelly Clarkson's, was The Vampire Diaries.
The show was about Elena Gilbert, played by Nina Dobrev and the town of Mystic Falls. The show revolved around Elena for most of the time, but we did get glimpses into other plotlines, such as Niklaus and Caroline. There's just so much there it's really hard to aptly describe a plot.
During her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson gushed about Wesley's performance as Stefan. She's definitely Team Stefan. Me? I'm Team Damon all the way, thanks.
Anyway, it seems that Clarkson had visited The Vampire Diaries set in Atlanta, and she asked Wesley if he remembered; she was on tour, and she confessed: "I don't think you knew I was a real fan."
Paul admitted he had no idea the American Idol alum was a fan, especially when it came to his character! He went on to say he was flattered, and Clarkson admits that she was low-key and quiet about her love for the series.
While he was on The Kelly Clarkson Show, once everyone had gotten past Clarkson's love of Stefan Salvatore, he promoted his upcoming season of Tell Me A Story, which will air on CBS All Access.
This is an anthology series that warps classic fairytales, adapting them to be more modernized for today's viewers. He mentioned one of the stories that we can expect to see in this season: Sleeping Beauty, last year they produced Three Little Pigs. To add to the list, it seems that they will also be doing a rendition of Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella!
It's got to be pretty fun to write the scripts for this show! Like, recreating fairytales to be modernized adaptations is what I spent a year of my life doing during graduation! I've never watched Tell Me A Story, but now I've got too. Beauty and the Beast is an all-time favorite, and if you pay attention to the fact the live-action Beauty and the Beast isn't too old, there's probably a ton of adults who should tune in while they put on Disney's Beauty and the Beast for their kids.
Fairytales aren't just for children anymore, folks. This show gives us the adult fairytales we needed and didn't know we need.
