Not Even Julie Plec Noticed This 'Vampire Diaries' Connection While Directing Tonight's 'Riverdale'

Julie Plec directed tonight’s episode of Riverdale — and even she missed out on this connection until it hit her.

Die hard Vampire Diaries fans might have picked it up though — Thistle House (the home that Cheryl and Penelope Blossom live in now) is the Salvatore Boarding House!

“It was so funny, I had seen Thistlehouse on camera but it hadn’t registered with me,” Julie shared in a new interview with Bustle. “And when we pulled up the driveway for the location scout to go see it, I was like, ‘This is so familiar. I feel like I’ve been here before.’”

The house was used as the Salvatore Boarding House in the first ever Vampire Diaries episode.

She adds, “I actually took a good look at the house and realized it was the Salvatore House from [The Vampire Diaries] pilot. Isn’t that hilarious? Because we shot the pilot in Vancouver [before moving to Atlanta for the series]. And the backyard of it which is so gorgeous is where we built our cemetery. That was a nice flashback!”

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Camila Mendes Reveals The Exact Nail Polish Color That Veronica Wears on 'Riverdale'

Camila Mendes Reveals The Exact Nail Polish Color That Veronica Wears on 'Riverdale'

On Riverdale, Cheryl has her signature shade of lipstick, and Betty is almost never without her ponytail — and for Veronica, it’s her nail color.

Speaking with E! News, Camila Mendes opened up about the deep colors that Veronica will never be without on the show.

“Veronica is like purple, navy, black, more jewel tones,” Camila shared. “You know, so she can do like a burgundy, you know, or like a deep, darker red, like a wine color.”

For season two, Veronica’s nails “are always Malaga Wine. Malaga Wine from OPI and that’s the nail color I’ll always have for as long as we’re shooting Riverdale.”

Camila added that the deep colors are perfect for Veronica, too.

“The dark colors for me speaks to Veronica’s mysterious darkness and her being from a dark family that’s full of secrets,” she shared. “I think that just fits her character.”

“She’s always been a bolder character with the full brow and the dark lips and the perfect, polished hair. She’s very sleek.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays on The CW.

Asha Bromfield Hopes To Explore Josie & The Pussycats' Humanity on 'Riverdale'

Asha Bromfield Hopes To Explore Josie & The Pussycats' Humanity on 'Riverdale'

Asha Bromfield is opening up about what she hopes to explore with her character on Riverdale.

The actress makes up 1/3 of Josie and The Pussycats on the show, and hopes to explore the humanity of the group.

“I would love for the characters to be explored in a three-dimensional way. I don’t know if I [necessarily] have a specific idea of where I think that it should go,” she told Teen Vogue. “Obviously, that would be up to the writers, but whatever they do decide to do, I want to see them be human. I don’t want to see characters fall into archetypes or stereotypes of what society thinks that they should be. I just want to see their humanity. I’d love to see their relationships [with] each other as a sisterhood. I’d also love to see some backstory about how they met and who they are as people. What are they interested in? What makes them laugh? What makes them cry?”

Riverdale's Hart Denton Dishes On If Chic Cooper Could Be The Real Black Hood Or Not

Riverdale's Hart Denton Dishes On If Chic Cooper Could Be The Real Black Hood Or Not

Hart Denton is back on an all-new Riverdale tonight and he’s asking you to give Chic Cooper a chance on the show.

Speaking with TVGuide, the newest addition to the cast says that Chic actually has a lot of layers, and you just have to get past them first in order to trust him.

“It’s not black or white. It’s not good or bad. It’s somebody that has had such a difficult upbringing who has had to learn how to make his way in the world on his own,” he says. “It’s not normal, per se.”

Hart adds that “his actions don’t come from a place of understanding from anyone else on the show.”

“You wouldn’t say Archie or Betty or Veronica or Reggie – you wouldn’t see them do this type of thing. That’s apples and oranges. These people grew up in such a different way than Chic did. You can’t pin him as a good or bad guy just yet. You kind of have to wait and see because he’s definitely not boring.”

Hart also added that while you can think he’s the real Black Hood, that might not be true either.

“You have to give Chic some time. Watch and see how he is in different situations. It will be pretty easy to see whether he should be or not.”

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
