|“|| My favorite season of TVD has definitely been this last one. Because I knew from the beginning it was going to be my last season, so I kinda took the time to appreciate all the small things. Hanging out with friends on set, to working with different directors to everything. I have so many favorite memories on set it's tough to pick, but the days that are my favorite are when everyone's working. Usually it takes us a while because were all cracking jokes and stuff all day. But you know, those days are definitely my favorite.
My favorite Jeremy quote, it's gotta be that self-indulgent one. You know it kinda one of those cheesy action moments that I enjoy. My favorite scene to film this season was one where I was puking actually. It was just one of those rare opportunities Jeremy gets to be funny. We had to cut a bunch just because I couldn't stop-I kept laughing, but it was one of my favorite scenes to film and it was fun to watch. My favorite memory with a fan... There's so many, anytime someone's nice enough to come say hi or ask for a picture or just to say hello it's very flattering. I always enjoy it.
