When you watch The Originals or The Vampire Diaries, it's not just the plot twists that keep people coming back. Every single week the plot thickens and changes, and fans keep running back for more. The writers do an absolutely amazing job at keeping everyone on their toes and interested in just what will happen next.
The other thing that keeps everyone going back are the absolutely beautiful people that fill up the cast line. Sexy accents, beautiful legs and jawlines, perfect hair, penetrating eyes/stares, flawless smiles... Fans are captivated by the overall sex appeal of the stars of these shows. Although ordinary, yet astonishingly beautiful, people play these characters, none of them fit the description of "normal."
Not a single person on the show has ever been the slightest bit overweight. Any time a guy takes off his shirt, he has abs. When the women wear shorts or skirts, their legs are well oiled and look absolutely flawless. Everyone has a remarkably beautiful smile and those deep, penetrating eyes, so when the camera zooms into their face, you can't help but stare into them and become immediately enthralled by the character currently on screen.
Olga Fonda (Nadia Petrova), Rick Cosnett (Dr. Wes Maxfield), Janina Gavankar (Qetsiyah aka Tessa), and Kendrick Sampson (Jesse) add fresh faces, but there's no lack of beauty among any of the actors. The cast of beauties only seems to continue to grow. Then jumping over to the cast of The Originals, when you look at all the vampires that surround Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), all the men have a certain quality about them that make them very attractive far beyond just their looks. Who can't help but stare at all these beautiful people for an hour every Tuesday and Thursday night? I know that's one thing that draws me in.
The writing is still absolutely great, and the characters are developing quite nicely. I know we've already visited the the Caroline storyline with her transitioning into a vampire back in season two, but I think there's so much more to explore. Hopefully we'll get to see much more of that this season.
Cheers to the almighty beautiful people on the casts of two of the biggest shows on TV right now!
