EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!

vampire 1 THE ORIGINALS AND VAMPIRE DIARIES FILMING IN OLD TOWNE CONYERS

HALLOWEEN HAS ALREADY COME AND GONE, YET THE VAMPIRES HAVE JUST ARRIVED!  FOR ALL YOU BACKGROUND EXTRAS OUT THERE THIS IS A CHANCE TO GET IN ON THE ACTION.  FILMING FOR THE CW’S THE ORIGINALS AND VAMPIRE DIARIES HAS BEGUN RIGHT HERE IN GOOD OL’ CONYERS.   IF YOU’VE NEVER TAKEN A STROLL IN DOWNTOWN CONYERS, NOW WOULD BE THE TIME TO DO SO.  THE HISTORIC OLDE TOWN CONYERS HAS AN ARRAY OF WONDERFUL QUALITIES THAT MAKE IT A FAVORITE FOR LOCALS AND FILM PRODUCTIONS ALIKE. FROM THE CELTIC TAVERN IRISH PUB TO THE LAS FLORES RESTAURANT TO THE DELICIOUSNESS OF CONYER’S OWN CREAMERY, THIS QUAINT TOWN PACKS A PUNCH.

ROCKDALE COUNTY’S OLDE TOWN CONYERS IS MARKED BY VIBRANTLY COLORED BRICKFACE AND IT HAS BEEN AN IDEAL LOCATION FOR THE CW’S HIT SHOWS “The ORIGINALS AND “THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”.

THE ORIGINALS WHICH DEBUTED IN OCTOBER OF 2013 AS A PREQUEL TO THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, HAVE BEEN INSTALLING SEMI PERMANENT FIXTURES SUCH AS THE JARDIN GRIS VOODOO SHOPS AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF NEW ORLEANS FRENCH QUARTER DISTRICT IN THE OLDE TOWN CONYERS AREA. ALTHOUGH “THE ORIGINALS” IS SET IN NEW ORLEANS, THE ACTUAL FILMING IS DOWN IN AND AROUND ATLANTA HEAVILY CONCENTRATED IN SMALL LOCAL SITES LIKE OLDE TOWN CONYERS.  THE VAMPIRE DIARIES SHOOTS A FEW SCENES FOR “MYSTIC FALLS” AT THIS LOCATION AS WELL.
