NEW YORK – Fans may get a chill watching the CW’s “Vampire Diaries,” but star Nina Dobrev says the cast and crew were the ones spooked while filming at the Gaither Plantation in Covington, Ga.
Dobrev says several creepy, unexplained events took place during the recent shoot, including a piano playing apparently on its own and lights going on and off by themselves. The actress, who plays characters Elena and Katherine in the Vampire drama filmed in the Atlanta area, also says everyone had a collective “weird feeling” at the site even though “nobody could pinpoint” why.
Jason Hawes, lead investigator of the Syfy channels “Ghost Hunters,” says during a 2009 visit to the plantation his team found compelling evidence of paranormal activity.
“Vampire Diaries” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
