Another major star of “The Vampire Diaries” is leaving the show – Kat Graham.
The actress confirmed that season eight of TVD will be her last.
“Season 8 will be my last,” Graham told Us Weekly at the recent iHeartRadio Music Awards. “I just hope that whatever I do after, the crew can come with me. If the crew can come with me, then we’ll be good. The crew is going to be the hardest thing to let go because we’re a family,” she added.
Graham added though that there are still lot of things that will going to happen to her character, Bonnie, this season.
“There’s some really intense stuff with my character this season. I think the biggest episodes I’ve ever had are 20 [airing April 29] and 21 [airing May 6]. It’s pretty major for the character — huge turns, a lot of stunts and cool s**t!”
Graham exit to the show would mean that something is going to happen to her character. In the story, if Bonnie dies, Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) will live again. Would this mean Dobrev will come back in season eight?
Dobrev left “The Vampire Diaries” at the end of season six. There have been rumours that she will return to CW series, but the actress herself dismissed the reports.
However, there were also hints that her character will return in TVD in a crossover with “The Originals.”
Dobrev is reportedly in talks to join the cast of “The Originals” in its upcoming season, Inquistr reported. It is still unclear which character Dobrev might play. However, executive producer Julie Plec has hinted that Elena still has a story to tell.
“[There] is still a chapter of [Elena’s] story left to be told. [I’ll] take [Dobrev] for whatever she’s willing to do to tell that story,” Plec told TVLine.
The TVD-The Original crossover event will begin during episode 14 of “The Vampire Diaries” when Stefan (Paul Wesley) decides to take a trip to New Orleans in order to find a refuge from magic. That’s where he’ll run into his old friend Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan).
Currently, Dobrev is busy filming for “XxX: The Return of Xander Cage” movie alongside Vin Diesel and “Orange is The New Black” star Ruby Rose.
