The cast & crew of the Vampire Diaries & the Originals are taking time to honor one of their own! Read below as Julie Plec sits down and discusses Sarah and the walkathon with Kristin Dos Santos.
Earlier this year, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals family lost one of their own in a tragic accident.
Sarah Jones, a young camera assistant in Georgia, lost her life while working on the film set for the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider due to unsafe working conditions. Today would have been her 28th birthday, and the TVD and Originals cast and crew are honoring her in an incredibly meaningful way.
Members from both CW hit shows banded together to organize a 5K walk-a-thon in Atlanta, where both shows film, on Sunday, October 5, led by Jones’ parents, Richard and Elizabeth Jones, along with her brother Eric. All proceeds from the event will go to the Sarah Jones Film Foundation.
We were so moved when we heard about this amazing event that we sat down with TVD/Originals boss Julie Plec so she could tell us all about how the walk-a-thon will honor Jones and help her family. Watch our exclusive interview with Plec below!
“She was a really beautiful girl and a really wonderful person and extremely close with the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals,” Plec said. “So the crews of both shows and some of the cast of both shows have all been invited. We’re going to have fun making it a full social media experience for everyone and get people to tweet along as they walk, other crews across the country can walk with us, we’re going to try to put together a Spotify playlist…and it’s a fundraising experience.”
Plec continued, “She will be missed, and this is our way of celebrating her.”

LET’S MAKE A DEAL — Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) try a brutal new approach to provoke Elena (Nina Dobrev) into turning her humanity back on, and Caroline (Candice Accola) is frustrated when her attempt to intervene backfires. When Elena figures out a way to call the Salvatore brothers’ bluff, they call for backup from a surprising source. Matt (Zach Roerig) gives Rebekah (Claire Holt) some unsolicited advice on her life choices, and she tries to help him in return. Caroline has a confusing and dangerous encounter with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) is suspicious when Bonnie (Kat Graham) makes her an offer that she promises will benefit them both. Darnell Martin directed the episode written by Michael Narducci & Rebecca Sonnenshine (#421).
Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) take off in search of Katherine (also played by Nina Dobrev) and find themselves in a small town in Pennsylvania, where Elena has a surprising encounter with another old acquaintance — Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies). Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) are both concerned about Elena’s state of mind and are determined to do what’s best for her, but she makes it clear that helping her will be difficult. Damon is not sure how to react when Stefan reveals his unexpected plan for the future. Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) receives Caroline’s (Candice Accola) reluctant help and comes to a new understanding of Silas’ powers.
