'The Vampire Diaries' star Kat Graham, more celebs band together for World Suicide Prevention Day -- VIDEO

In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day, The Vampire Diaries‘ Kat Graham, comedian Margaret Cho, athletes Chris Kluwe and Brendan Ayanbedejo, and more celebs participated in a public service announcement on suicide prevention.

In the video, the participants all take the “Talk to Me” pledge, encouraging everyone to respect each other regardless of sexuality, to pledge to listen seriously to someone contemplating suicide, and to call the Trevor lifeline (866-488-7386) when they or someone they know needs help.

The video was created by online news show What’s Trending in conjunction with The Trevor Project, which “is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24,” according to the Trevor website.

'The Vampire Diaries' turns 4 today! Here are 20 things we're thankful it gave us -- VIDEOS

Four years ago today, something supernatural happened: The Vampire Diaries premiered on The CW. And just like that, we fell into the world of Mystic Falls, Va., where the hot new guy in town had a sexy (albeit dangerous) secret, Bonnie was “psychic,” Jeremy was in his drug phase, Elena was sick of faking a smile, and no one knew what a  “moonstone” was.

That, of course, would all change, just as we, the viewers, would change right along with it as TVD exposed us to countless wonderful things. Here’s our list of the 20 things we want to thank The Vampire Diaries for giving us:

2013 Teen Choice Awards: Miley Cyrus, 'Glee,' 'Twilight' win big

At the 2013 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, the teens clearly played favorites, with a handful of shows and movies (The Vampire Diaries, Pitch Perfect, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2) and artists (Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus) nabbing the bulk of the prizes.

There were a lot of emotional speeches in the mix, too, from Ashton Kutcher’s commencement-worthy acceptance of the Ultimate Choice Award to Lea Michele’s tearful tribute to late Glee co-star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith.

Character Rehab: How to fix Hayley on 'The Originals'

Here at EW, we’re starting a new weekly series in which we — and readers — weigh in on ways to rehab much-maligned characters on some of our favorite shows.

There are characters that you love to hate, and then there are characters that you simply despise. Werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) fell in to the latter category on The Vampire Diaries, which is why some fans weren’t exactly thrilled to hear she’ll be a regular sight on the upcoming spinoff, The Originals. This is a young woman whose mission on TVD was to set 12 werewolf-vampire hybrids up for slaughter by Klaus (Joseph Morgan) — to get a step closer to finding the family she’s never known. She later had hate-sex with Klaus, another lost, lonely soul, and, we learned in an episode last April, is now carrying Klaus’ child. (He was born a werewolf before magic made him a vampire, so he’s “nature’s loophole”). The Originals, which debuts on The CW this fall, will be “as much about Hayley’s redemption as anyone else’s,” according to exec producer Julie Plec. So let’s accept that we’re not getting a break from Hayley anytime soon, and pitch ways for the writers to take advantage of this chance to reintroduce her and make her tolerable.
