NikkieTutorials Reveals She Was Almost Cast In 'The Vampire Diaries'!

NikkieTutorials made quite the revelation in her latest YouTube video!

While doing a makeup/trivia challenge with her fiance and best friend, the 26-year-old revealed she was almost cast in The Vampire Diaries.

The trivia question was, “Which American television show almost cast me to be part of their show?”

“I was almost cast as Meredith in The Vampire Diaries,” Nikkie answered. “That people is the truth. A couple of years ago when I was really young and just did a couple of Vampire Diaries makeup tutorials, the casting agency behind The Vampire Diaries contacted me through email and they were like, ‘Okay girl, we see that you’re a huge fan, we think you could be a perfect fit for Meredith.’”

“They basically sent me an entire scene. I had to film it, I had to reenact it. It was basically an audition tape. They loved what I did and they were talking about flying me out to Atlanta, Georgia, where they filmed the show,” she continued. “Basically everything was a go, we were looking at flights, we were looking at it all, and I told my mom, I was like, ‘Mom, I made it, I’m an actress, I’m flying to the US to pursue this career honey.’ And my mom was like, ‘Oh my god! I can’t believe this is happening to my daughter.’”

“Everything was a go until they asked for a last couple of details. They were like, ‘Can we just get your measurements for like the clothing, and can we just get like all this stuff to buy clothes and know how you line up with the actors,’” Nikkie went on. “As soon as I emailed them that I am 6’2″, maybe even 6’3″ at this point, never heard from them again. i’m guessing that my height, because the men on the show were so tiny, I’m guessing that it was the height that was a problem. But, never heard from them again!”

The part of Dr. Meredith Fell did eventually go to Torrey DeVitto in seasons three and four!

Whoa – we did not see this one coming!

Taylor Swift was almost a guest star on The Vampire Diaries, according to Nina Dobrev.

The 31-year-old star of the show revealed recently that since Taylor was a fan of the series, producers tried to get her on it.

“I remember at the very beginning, we heard that Taylor Swift was a fan of the show,” Nina told E! News. “And then the producers tried to write a role for her. It didn’t work out schedule-wise, obviously, she wasn’t on the show. But that was a surprising one.”

Taylor eventually made her television debut on an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

'The Vampire Diaries' Cast & Crew Celebrate 10 Years, Reveal Moment They Knew It Was Special

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since The Vampire Diaries premiered?!

The hit CW show ran for seven and a half years, eight seasons, and 171 episodes, from September 9, 2009 until March 10, 2017.

To celebrate the milestone anniversary, the cast and crew, including Nina Dobrev and creator Julie Plec dished on the show, and the moment in the pilot when they knew they had something special.

The moment happened when Elena met Stefan for the first time in the pilot.

“It was such an important scene for our characters, and Paul and I jumped [in] headfirst,” Nina told TV Guide.

“When we were shooting [the scene], it was so potent and so magical that we all did look at ourselves and each other and say, ‘If this works for everyone else like it’s working for us, I think we’re going to be good,’” Julie added.

Where is Candice King's Caroline in The CW's 'Legacies?'

The Vampire Diaries spin-off Legacies won’t be featuring Caroline Forbes when the show kicks off, so how will the new series explain her absence?

So far, Vampire DiariesMatt Davis, Steven R. McQueen, and Zach Roerig, are all set to reprise their roles, but not Candice King.

“We’re going to hear her and feel free a lot,” showrunner Julie Plec told EW. “I don’t know when we’ll see her. I, of course, would like to see her anytime. The door is open. But the girls are dealing with the fact that their mother, who has raised them, is a little absentee lately.”

So, what’s Caroline been up to since saying farewell to Klaus? “They believe she’s off on recruiting missions,” Julie shared about Caroline’s twin daughters. “Alaric knows she’s actually off doing other things that have to do with the long-term survival of their daughters. So the mystery of, where is Caroline, why isn’t she coming home for their birthday, that kind of thing is gonna be part of our story in the hopes that one day we’ll be able to walk to have her walk through the doors as well.”

“A lot of the supernatural beings that we’ll be opening our doors to are things you never would have seen on The Vampire Diaries,” Julie said as star Danielle Rose Russell added, “In our second episode, we have a very exciting new creature with a lot of CGI.”

Legacies premieres on October 25 on The CW.
