Stars from the Netflix series The Vampire Diaries and The Umbrella Academy team up for a Netflix rom ...

The first trailer for a new rom-com starring The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham and Umbrella Academy's Tom Hopper has been released on Netflix.

Love In The Villa might sound like a play on the Love Island this year, but as the trailer demonstrates, it's more of a Shakespearean feel.

Julia (Graham) is following her boyfriend Brandon (Raymond Ablack) on a romantic trip to Verona.

Julia is unceremoniously dumped by Brandon and makes the bold decision to fly to Italy alone just before they're about to embark on their dream vacation.

Julia discovers that her romantic villa has been double booked, and she is forced to share it with Charlie (Hopper), who is in Verona for work.

After a rocky start, the couple manages to reach some common ground as they explore the romantic city together for the first time, where they might just be star-crossed lovers.

Graham is well-known for her role as Bonnie Bennett on The Vampire Diaries, which ended in 2017.

If the show is rebooted, the actress has said she won't plan to re-create the character of Bonnie for eight seasons.

"I mean, I spent more time as a person than I spent as myself," she continued. "I'm still that girl who was running around rogue, trying to get gigs," she said. "I finally feel like, with especially all of the five films I'm dropping this year, I'm almost playing catch-up in a weird way as an artist.

"I feel like I gave that program, and the fans that watch it, eight years of my life, and poured so much into it, and sacrificed a lot of time with my family, even time doing my work for the UN refugee agency, and my activism." So much of that has to be put on hold when you're on a 22-episode series for eight years.

"So, as grateful [as I am] and I mean grateful because I grew from that show, I became who I am today in my twenties from that show for me, yes, the door is closed."

Love in The Villa will be available on Netflix on September 1st. Seasons 1-3 of The Umbrella Academy are now available on Netflix.
