6 Pairs of The CW Male Co-Stars Who Were Actually Roommates
The ladies of The CW aren’t the only ones to call each other roommates — though, there do seem to be more of ’em — the male hotties of The CW like to pair up under the same roof as well. And we’re not just talking about duos like Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley & Gilmore Girls‘ Milo Ventimiglia, who, yes, were roomies back in the day. No no, we’re talking about CW co-stars!
Everyone knows that Gossip Girl heartthrobs Chace Crawford & Ed Westwick bunked up during the drama’s early days, but what about the sexy men from The Vampire Diaries, The 100, Supernatural and One Tree Hill? All of ’em are right here:
Michael Trevino & Zach Roerig
They played lifelong friends on The Vampire Diaries, but their real-life bromance didn't start off smoothly.
"Initially, we didn't get along. I didn't like Zach," Michael revealed at the 2014 ATV Festival. "Long story short, we get on a flight, we get on the plane, and creators Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec are sitting there, and I'm reading the book of Vampire Diaries, which, as you all know, we didn't really stick to, but I'm like, 'I'm doing my homework, I'm ready to go!' And then in comes Zach, sitting next to me, and what is he lugging? A big ass snowboard because we're going to Vancouver. And I'm wondering, 'Bro, we're here to work. We've got to book this job. This pilot isn't picked up yet and you're trying to snowboard? So initially, it's just like, 'Ugh, this guy is gonna cost me this job, my bank account's gonna get lower because I gotta worry about this kid.'"
"We really bonded in that we both — even though we didn't like each other, we thought we were cool — we both got screwed over," explained Zach. "At the time The Vampire Diaries decided to film in Vancouver, it was like this hot bed of filming. Twilight was there, Percy Jackson... so this hotel, The Sutton Place, otherwise known as The Sluttin' Place, was booked up. So I'd already been at The Sutton Place before, and I'd already gotten that dirty, gross apartment side of the hotel, but it's big and it's spacious. Trevino and I were stuck on the hotel side in a small room with a mini fridge for three or four weeks."
Living in those close quarters helped form the brotherhood you know today.
