The Vampire Diaries season four has been a rather sad affair, topped by the fact that the writers decided to kill off Jeremy Gilbert. Now, actor Steven R. McQueen, who has played the character for the past four seasons, has admitted that he was sad to be leaving the show.
McQueen was talking at the Eyecon convention, when he said, "Well, they burnt me body, so I think they were saying I’m done. When I found out that I was gonna get killed, I was kinda sad. It wasn’t until it aired, and then people started calling me, like, ‘You’re dead,’ that it kind of really hit me, ‘Aw, man this is rough.’ But it was a great experience, and I learned a lot from it. … It was a lot of fun.”
Steven then went on to talk about his future, now that his The Vampire Diaries days are over, and he hinted at the possibility of making a return on another CW television series, “I can say that CW is a great network, so there might be a future surprise on maybe a different show coming up," explained McQueen.
The Vampire Diaries has already been renewed for a fifth season by The CW but, before then, The Vampire Diaries season four continues with the seventeenth episode of the season set to air on The CW on Thursday, March 21.
