The cast of the CW’s The Secret Circle is well aware of the buzz around the show as a result of the popular young- adult book series and know it’s a lot to live up to.

“It’s stressful, because we want to make sure people like what we’re doing and we can only go by what we hope people will like at this point because no one has seen it,” cast member Thomas Dekker said.

In a chat with EW, cast members Gale Harold, Adam Harrington, Thomas Dekker, and Ashley Crow talk about those big expectations and how the show will live up to the fan hype.
