The long running show is rumored to be in it’s final season and will consist of 16 episodes. The show premiered this past fall and is still filming those last 16 episodes in the Atlanta area. For fans of the show who live in the Atlanta area there is still a chance to be cast as an extra on the show. The newest casting notice is looking for locals to a few background roles in scenes that will be filming later this week.

The series films in the Decatur, GA area and the show’s casting directors are only considering talent that lives in or near the Atlanta area.


Vampire Diaries season 8

The show is based on New York times best selling writer, L. J. Smith books also called “Vampire Diaries.“  “Vampire Diaries” airs on the CW Network and is set in the fictional town of Mystic Falls…. a place where Vampires, werewolves and witches also roam the streets.  The show is based on the book series also called “Vampire Diaries” by L. J. Smith.   ”Vampire Diaries”  was developed by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec for the CW Network.  CW also has a spin-off series called “The Originals“, which also films in the Atlanta area.

    I’m interested in being an extra; can I just show up? Do I need to fill out a form and bring it with me? I can work all three days. I live in the Decatur area, Covington is about 30 minutes away.

      You need to follow the directions on the casting notice to be considered. You cannot just show up as extras are selected from their pics and then contacted with further instructions by the casting team.

    Hi I’m from India. I can speak Hindi and English, both fluently. I wish I could give auditions for vampire diaries, fact is that nobody is going to consider a guy who’s in INDIA.
