In case you were unaware, BuzzFeed recently asked some of the biggest names in television what advice they’d share with their on-screen persona — and naturally, the entire piece is as hilarious as it is pragmatic and honest. Best of all? A handful of talented cast members from The Originals and The Vampire Diaries were included in the exclusive round-up, and they had some blunt yet thoughtful bits of counsel to offer their respective supernatural characters! (After all, a life as a vampire/witch/Mikaelson is full of headache-inducing drama and potentially fatal complications — these sexy fiends can use all the guidance they can get!)

Dive into the gallery below to see what words of wisdom a few of our beloved fang stars — including Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaleson), Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert), Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore), and Danielle Campbell (Davina Claire) — told editor extraordinaire, Jarett Wieselman, they’d dish out to their bloodthirsty, magic-wielding counterparts. Oh, and be sure to check out the complete list — featuring actors and actresses from hit series such as Scandal, The Good Wife, Arrow, Reign, Supernatural, Hannibal, Modern Family, Sleepy Hollow and The Big Bang TheoryHERE!)

Danielle Campbell's Advice to Davina Claire

"There is a saying: Trust, but verify. I think it really relates to Davina. She has been betrayed over and over to the point where she no longer trusts people and has shut herself off to the world. My advice would be to keep herself open to let people in. If she wants to be loved and have friendships, she needs to learn that the whole world isn’t out to get her. While she must be cautious, she can’t spend her life hiding."
