'The Originals' Cast Gives Heartfelt Thank You to Fans Ahead of Final Episodes (Video)

Can you believe there’s only one episode of The Originals left before the series finale?!

When TV Guide asked the cast what they’ll miss most about their CW show, they all brought up their fans.

“This show wouldn’t have existed without you guys,” Joseph Morgan said. “You watched Vampire Diaries and you started putting all of these trailers online, making all these trailers for The Originals. I mean, you guys even named it… You took a couple of villains from that show and you decided you wanted a show about them, and I’m just so grateful we got to go on that journey with you, so thank you so much for that experience.”

“We really worked hard to tell great stories for you,” showrunner Julie Plec added, “And your passion and your enthusiasm and your total rage at me for saying the show was over means that it meant a lot to you, and I appreciate that.”

“Your love and your support and your kindness does not go unnoticed,” Claire Holt shared. “We talk about it all the time, and I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.”

Hear what Daniel Gillies, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood, Riley Voelkel, Nathaniel Buzolic, and Danielle Rose Russell had to say below.

The Originals airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW.

Joey Birlem Opens Up About His Rise to Social Media Stardom

Joey Birlem strikes a pose for his brand-new shoot with RAW Pages!

The social media star, who shot to fame on the app musical.ly, now boasts 1.3 million Instagram followers. Here’s what he had to share with the online mag:

On how he got started in social media: “I moved out to L.A. when I was 13 and I was living in an apartment complex with my mom and my sister right in the center of Hollywood. I became friends with my a friend of my sister’s who taught me how to do it all. He made my apps and my name and stuff all ‘itsjoeybirlem’ and we both just started and kind of became a group, like us two were doing social media together.”

On the best advice he’s been given from his “social media big brothers” and living with Cameron Dallas:Cameron was amazing. He taught me a lot of stuff, he mostly taught me how to stay active! Like I wasn’t usually posting every single day and he helped me a lot with that, and I think that’s what kind of gave me a lot also.”

On how social media has influenced his whole career: “It made me more outgoing and happier, a nicer person, I got more friends. It just benefited me in every way.”
