EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Vampire Diaries Stars Are Innocent In Flashing Scandal, Says Show Exec

The producers of the hot new show The Vampire Diaries defended their young stars in a video interview with RadarOnline.com and say the actresses are innocent of charges that caused a recent run-in with the police.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Kayla Ewell and Sara Canning were all dragged to police headquarters and forced to post bond for disorderly conduct after cops received a complaint that they were flashing motorists in Forsyth, Georgia in August.

We caught up with Diaries executive producer Julie Plec at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview on Monday in LA,  where she told us that the girls weren’t flashing passing motorists while on a bridge as police alleged, but “It was a photo shoot. They are four great, smart, respectful girls” who did nothing wrong.

“Oops,” said the creator and executive producer of the show Kevin Williamson.  “They shouldn’t have been there, I guess.”
