Thanks for watching me on The Vampire Diaries!

 

Hey guys!  Just wanted to quickly give a BIG BLOODY THANK YOU to all of you for watching my CW debut on The Vampire Diaries!  I really appreciate all the love – your sweet messages on Facebook and Twitter are greatly appreciated.  So… THANK YOU!

And as for the rest of you… those of you who missed it – HOW COULD YOU?!

No, I’m kidding.  Honestly, I completely understand.  You’re not all in the target demographic and The Vampire Diaries isn’t for everyone.  I mean, my parents didn’t even watch it.  I’m serious, they really didn’t.  Can you believe that?!  I guess you’ve made it when your parents aren’t even interested in seeing you on network TV anymore… so I should probably just take it as a compliment. (Apparently there was some issue with Time Warner Cable that day…. okay, surrre.)  BUT, for those of you who missed it and do actually love me – there’s still hope!

The Vampire Diaries ep 17 “I Went to the Woods” is now streaming on Hulu!

If you missed the episode (or are dying to channel your inner 14 year-old girl and watch it again), no worries!  You can catch me on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES episode 17 “I Went To The Woods” for free here on The CW website (look under “latest episodes”) and you can also find it now streaming on Hulu as well… my scenes happen about a third of the way in.

AND for the quick Cliff Notes version, you can check out my edited scenes here!

And if you’re not interested in seeing any of it but want to successfully fake like you did… check out the Press Release that went out here!

Otherwise, the basic gist is this… 

I play an unlucky waitress in a southern roadhouse barbecue joint who falls victim to a sadistic vampire who “compels” my character to wait on him and offer “refills” from my wrist… he later sucks blood from my neck and eventually drains me completely.  And as if that wasn’t disturbing enough, he then “dances” with my lifeless body – flinging and dipping me around – and then throws me to the ground like a ragdoll.  Poor thing.  It’s a really horrible way to go… but hey, at least she’s not waiting tables anymore!

Thanks again for all the love and support!  More fun news to come!  Cheers!

Same Actor, New Name… Meet Elizabeth Braun!

Same Actor, New Name… Meet Elizabeth Braun!

It’s officially official… I have officially changed my professional name from “Elizabeth Lauren Hoffman” to “Elizabeth Braun”.  No one panic.  Everything is gonna be okay.  It’s still me!

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” – Tweet That!

So I married this guy… his name’s Laurence… he’s pretty cute and smart… fun to hang out with… we both like tacos… he reads a lot of scripts… surfs… loves Star Trek… he’s totes dreamy (minus the Star Trek stuff of course – no offense).  And, you know, we got married.

So after a year and a half of procrastination and headaches, I finally changed my legal name to “Elizabeth Braun”.  Why?  Because I like the name – it sounds nice.  And because I’m a romantic. Yes, you can be a romantic and still be a feminist… gasp! #truth (See below).

Now, in case you’re wondering, I had originally planned on keeping my professional name as “Elizabeth Lauren Hoffman” because I liked the idea of keeping some anonymity… but mostly because I’ve worked my ass off and didn’t want to have to reintroduce myself to the world.  But then I realized how exhausting it was to have two names.  I mean, try going through security on your way to an audition at the Fox lot with an I.D. that says one thing and a headshot that says something else.  So…

I bit the bullet, bought the domain, and changed my name… or at least my IMDb was updated so there’s really no going back.  But… it works.  Laurence and I are both entertainment industry peeps with big ambitions and it feels nice to have the same team name on our jerseys.  Two hopeless workaholics.  He’s gonna run a network one day and we’re gonna give Norma Shearer and Irving Thalberg a run for their money – and they had a lot.  Should be fun.

Had my 1st audition today as the new me… Elizabeth Braun! Thanks casting friends for tolerating my Sharpie’d headshot. #gratitude #savetrees #actorslife #tw

Anyway, thanks for bearing with me as my name transitions… with sharpie’d headshot corrections (save the trees!) and with website and social media adjustments.  It’s work but it’s coming along and feels nice to simplify things.  I’m excited to see what the future has in store for us all.  And, as cheesy as it sounds…

Hello, it’s nice to meet you.  My name’s Elizabeth Braun. 🙂

“Third wave feminism calls for equal social, political, and economic rights between men and women while not asserting the superiority of either gender. Third wave feminists neither swear off femininity nor exclude masculinity from their personality. The point is to be equal without overwhelmingly accepting or barring socially constructed gender roles.” (Seiffert, Kat. “Feminism: Introduction and Basic History.” Published @ RC: December 2004).
