Well, it turns out the late Sarah Jones worked on Vampire Diaries, too. Sources say she was a beloved member of that closely knit crew!

New BFF Alert! Lorde Gets Her Breakfast On With Kiernan Shipka As They Talk Music, TV, and…Taylor Swift?!?
Who knew these two were friends?!?
Probably! Swifty is a match-maker after all!
Regardless, the Mad Men actress took to her Instagram to post a picture of herself getting ready to nom on some pancakes with the Kiwi singer and they looked adorable!
First shopping with Taylor & now breakfast with Kiernan!
We're so jealous of Lorde's life!
Breakfast with @lordemusic + @amandlastenberg ☕️🍩
Awww! We LOVE it!
We wonder if they were discussing Lorde's music or what's next for Sally Draper?!?
OR did they choose to discuss boys and who they think Tay-Tay will date next!?!
So many topics to chat about that we bet their lunch lasted forever!

12 Years A Slave may or may not win Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday, but it already won a much bigger honor.
The National School Boards Association is partnering with the filmmakers and Penguin Books to make both the movie and the book on which it is based part of public high school curriculum!
"12 Years a Slave is one of the most impactful films in recent memory, and I am honored to have been able to bring together Fox Searchlight and National School Boards Association to maximize its educational potential. When Hollywood is at its best, the power of the movies can be harnessed into a powerful educational tool. This film uniquely highlights a shameful period in American history, and in doing so will evoke in students a desire to not repeat the evils of the past while inspiring them to dream big of a better and brighter future, and I’m proud to be a part of that."
Director Steve McQueen may be prouder of this achievement than any other award the film could garner. He said:
"Since first reading 12 Years a Slave, it has been my dream that this book be taught in schools. I am immensely grateful to Montel Williams and the National School Boards Association for making this dream a reality and for sharing Solomon Northup’s story with today’s generation."
This seems like a good idea to us.
Seeing the horrors of American slavery in a modern film is going to be much more impactful than simply reading a dry description in a history book.
Especially when those horrors are enacted on such charming actors as Lupita Nyong'o and Chiwetel Ejiofor!

Louis Tomlinson Is FINALLY Ready To Make His Soccer Debut With The Doncaster Rovers! Deets On His Big Game HERE!
Remember last year when the One Direction cutie signed on as a non-contract player with his hometown team, the Doncaster Rovers?? Well if you forgot, it's probably because he got injured and lost his lunch during a separate charity soccer match and missed his scheduled game!
But now that Louis has had several months to heal, he's finally ready to show us what he's made of! Tomorrow night he'll be hitting the field with the Doncaster reserve squad as they take on Rotherham at Keepmoat Stadium!
The game is expected to draw a crowd of about 4,000 fans, and we're willing to bet that a good chunk of them will be diehard Directioners!
