Edward Cullen (Twilight) & Stefan Salvatore (Vampire Diaries): Too Similar?

September 21, 2009

I couldn’t help myself. I think a lot when it’s late - and noticed the above picture of Stefan Salvatore (form CW’s The Vampire Diaries) while Googling stuff and HAD to put it next to a photo of Edward Cullen. The similarities are striking, no? My question is: Is this just really good marketing? Does the CW want to purposely make us think of Edward Cullen when we see Stefan Salvatore so that we will instantly fall in love, not realizing it’s because he reminds us so much of Edward? Subliminal Marketing at it’s finest perhaps.

I think there’s room for both, though. I don’t mind the Vampire Diaries - it’s no Twilight Saga, but it beats watching “Cribs” reruns. To be honest, I watch TV maybe once a week and had to YouTube Vampire Diaries to see it, and I don’t actually watch “Cribs” reruns - but you get my drift. I think that anyone visiting this site can agree that Elena Gilbert’s diary has nothing on Bella Cullen’s diary though!

Vampire Diaries may not be taking Twilight ideas... But they def inspired to do this series in TV coz there's TWILIGHT booming all over the world. The look is alike though Stefan is not as handsome as Rob. He looked more like David Borenaz (hope I spelled it right) in R-Patz cloths...

Well, even thoough this is old, I must say that The Vampire Diaries first books were published on 1991, and twilight was published waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay after that.

Who's copying who, then? :P

Obviously, if we see any similarities between Stefan and Edward, then that's because Stephenie admitted she had been "inspired" (she kinda copied a lot of things) by the Vamp Diaries. Even though the movie of twilight came first, i think, Rob portrays edward as a cheap copy of what Paul Wesley does so naturally at the Vampire Diaries series.
