The Covington News - - The Second Front - RACHEL GOFF rgoff@cov­news.com

Fans gath­ered in down­town Cov­ing­ton Wed­nes­day to try to get a glimpse of their fa­vorite stars from the hit TV show “The Vam­pire Di­aries.”

The CW Net­work show, which cen­ters around a young girl torn be­tween two vam­pire broth­ers, has been a hit with teen au­di­ences and is in the midst of film­ing its fourth sea­son in Cov­ing­ton and the east At­lanta area.

“We ac­tu­ally had a large group come in shortly af­ter 7 p.m.,” said Brittain Hunt, a Square Perk em­ployee. The cof­fee shop is a pop­u­lar hang­out for fans and cast alike. “A cou­ple of guys from the crew and some ac­tors also came in, which got a lot of peo­ple ex­cited.”

The shows’ fourth sea­son will pre­miere “Grow­ing Pains” Oct. 11.

In the pre­miere, Elena, the lead char­ac­ter played by Nina Do­brev, will be tran­si­tion­ing into a vam­pire, while her friends try to stop the tran­si­tion from hap­pen­ing, ac­cord­ing to a trailer re­cently re­leased.

The show also moves to a col­lege set­ting, as crews filmed at Ox­ford Col­lege re­cently and turned the his­toric Ox­ford home, Orna Villa, into a frat house, ac­cord­ing to the owner.

The TV show has brought a big boost to Cov­ing­ton’s tourism trade and there’s even been ru­mors the faux Mys­tic Grill res­tau­rant fa­cadé on the square, a pop­u­lar film­ing spot in the show, could soon have a real res­tau­rant be­hind it.
