Tragedy has struck The Vampire Diaries Atlanta family with the death of a beloved member of their crew, 27 year old Sarah Jones. Showrunner Julie Plec, confirmed the WSAV reports early Friday morning via Twitter.
“The #TVDFamily lost a loved one today. RIP beautiful Sarah Jones."
Sarah Jones was a second camera assistant for The Vampire Diaries, but was shooting on location in Savannah, GA with Meddin Studios when she was tragically stuck by an unexpected train while setting up a shot. Seven other crew members where injured as well on the project, a biopic entitled, Midnight Rider.
It's widely known that The Vampire Diaries cast and crew are a close knit family, so it's no surprise that the TVD Cast, including Steven R. McQueen and Ian Somerhalder took to social media to share the unimaginable news.
“Truly saddened to hear about the passing of a friend… R.I.P. Sarah Jones,” McQueen tweeted.
"My heart is heavy-the TVD fam & I lost a very dear sister of ours. An amazing woman, leaving us too soon. Hug your loved ones, hug them so tightly," Ian tweeted.
