3. Salvatore wasn't the original last name for Damon and Stefan's characters. The first draft of the scripts actually had Whitmore for their last name.

4. Most of the members of the cast can speak other languages. Nina Dobrev can speak Bulgarian perfectly. Paul Wesley speaks Polish. Kat Graham speaks Spanish, French, and Hebrew.

Gossip Girl

5. The CW didn't want Ed Westwick to play Nate Archibald (the role he originally auditioned for) or Chuck Bass because "he looked more like a serial killer than a romantic lead." Now we beg to disagree.

New Girl

12. Bears are mentioned on every episode of the show.

13. During the first season, Zooey Deschanel (Jess) and Jake Johnson (Nick) were told to go easy on the physical contact because their chemistry appeared as a distraction back then.

16. Tyler Posey was also considered for the role of Jacob Black in Twilight. Does he have the word "werewolf" printed all over his face to attract such roles?

Modern Family

18. While Nolan Gould played the adorable and clueless Luke Dunphy in the show, he's actually been a member of high IQ society, Mensa, since he was 4 years old.

20. In the first 2 seasons of the show, Cameron Tucker and Mitchell Pritchett's daughter, Lily, was played by twins Ella and Jaden Hiller. They were later replaced by Aubrey Anderson-Emmons because the show needed Lily to become a full-fledged character.
