The actress is paying tribute to the series, which concludes with an epic finale tonight, on social media.
“I cannot believe tonight is the last episode of #thevampirediares ever,” Phoebe wrote.
“You guys have been my family for the last 5 years, Julie and Kevin, thank you for inviting me onto the show in season 4, I owe so much to you guys and this incredible opportunity you gave me, my life would most definitely not be the same without it, and I am eternally gratefully.”
She added, “I love you all to pieces, congrats on such an EPIC 8 seasons.”
Tonight is the series finale of The Vampire Diaries and I can't seem to find the words to express what this show means to me. It changed my life and gave me a second family (a third through The Originals). Congratulations to the unbelievably talented/hard working cast and crew on 8 incredible seasons. I also want to say thank you to the wonderful fans for your support and loyalty. I love you all! #tvdforever #tvd
Would you take a look at these kids! And the rest of the dear cast and crew not in these frames. Feeling nostalgic today and grinning to have been part of it. Thank you to all who watched and cared to know these characters. I'll never tire of hearing "…Excuse me… Aunt Jenna?" I will always appreciate your kind (and often tremendously passionate) thoughts about Jenna's story in the grand scheme of things. And I'll always count myself lucky to have had this experience. Congrats to all who made The Vampire Diaries! #tvdseriesfinale #TVDforever
