The Originals, filmed in Conyers since 2013, has finished its five-year stint in the city. Conyers officials marked the premiere of the fifth and final season of the vampire episodes, which aired on April 19, tweeting that the white oak stake prop used in “The Originals” is now on loan to the Carter Library.
The prop is part of an exhibit highlighting President Jimmy Carter’s role in the creation of the first Georgia Film Commission in 1973 when he was governor.
“That stake, apparently, is the only thing that can kill a vampire,” said Jennifer Edwards, director of the city’s PR and Tourism Department. “We haven’t figured out yet what we’re going to do with it, but we are planning to get it back and use it in our tourism efforts.”
People come from around the world to Conyers to see the places where the scenes were shot from The Originals, Edwards said.
