Vampire Diaries cast pay tribute to their deceased co-worker

The latest episode of The Vampire Diaries aired in America began with a touching tribute to crew member Sarah Jones.

Sarah, a 27-year-old camera assistant, died on the set of Midnight Rider last week after being hit by a train while shooting on the tracks

A photograph of Sarah appeared at the start of last night’s episode as music from the Titanic soundtrack played and the following message was displayed:

“This memorial is dedicated to Sarah Jones who tragically lost her life. The film industry will forever mourn her death. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. IN LOVING MEMORY OF SARAH JONES. 1986-2014.”

Earlier in the day, Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder tweeted his sadness at Sarah’s death.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
