Super Natural Stars
From zombies to dragons to vampires, suspenseful shows with a twist of fantasy and a heap of gore have become a mainstay in today’s mainstream entertainment. Three actors who’ve chosen to film in the Peach State and give you and your friends that horrifically satisfying, edge-of-your-seat experience on both the big and small screens.
Annie Wersching, best known for playing FBI Special Agent Renee Walker in two seasons of the fast-paced FOX smash “24,” is now dividing her time between Atlanta, where she stars as Lily Salvatore in The CW’s hit “The Vampire Diaries,” and Los Angeles, where she has a recurring role in the Amazon Prime crime show “Bosch.”
Wersching spent the summer exploring Atlanta with her family, including husband Stephen Full and sons Freddie, five, and Ozzie, two. But now Wersching and Ozzie are now camped in Atlanta while Freddie and Full have returned to Los Angeles for the start of kindergarten.
“We decided that we would spend no longer than two weeks apart without the baby and I flying back or them flying here,” she says of the divide-and-conquer approach to keeping her career afloat while giving their kids a measure of stability and a home base.
Wersching says she’s having a ball on the popular blood-thirsty drama, where she plays mom to vampire brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and has begun shooting the next season—Wersching’s second and the series’ seventh.
