Teen.com gives us a run down on some of the actors who auditioned for other roles on the show they are currently starring on. Did you know that Paul auditioned for Damon?
When it comes to our favorite TV shows, our hearts are pretty much invested in the characters. And because of that, we’re ALSO invested in the actors and actresses who play those characters.
But in the case of some of our fave CW/WB (depending on what year you were watching) shows like The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl, viewers were thiiiis close to witnessing OTHER stars in those roles. No, this isn’t like some of our other They Almost Had It posts featuring outside actors and actresses — in this case, stars originally went out for different roles in the shows they ended up starring on!
A bit confused? No worries! See which actors auditioned for which parts!
