It looks like Nina Dobrev and Danielle Campbell aren’t the only CW vampires who have a strong off-screen friendship. Their fellow vampires have kept in close touch, too.

In fact, Paul Wesley and Daniel Gillies reunited in Rio de Janeiro just last month, and we’re still not over the photo of the two of them together.

“Botanical gardens. rio de janeiro. love historian — @craccola,” Gillies captioned his semi-serious bro picture in May, while also crediting The Vampire Diaries alum Candice Accola for the shot.

Though Wesley played a foe of the Original family for many episodes of The Vampire Diaries, it’s clear that off-screen there’s nothing but friendship between him and Gillies, who portrays Elijah Mikaelson on the drama’s spinoff.

These two actors prove that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals cast members are actually family for life, and it makes our hearts so happy.

According to JustJared.com, Wesley, Gillies, Accola were in Rio last month for a convention.

Although there weren’t any other pictures of the guys together on their trip to Brazil, Wesley did share a beautiful video of the city.

Here’s hoping this off-screen friendship leads to Wesley making a cameo on The Originals soon!

The Originals airs on Fridays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
