Mia Kirshner to Recur, Look Gorgeous on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

While The Vampire Diaries has grown exceedingly handsome over the last few weeks - with the addition of guest stars Matthew Davis and Dillon Casey - the show is about to throw a beautiful bone to its male viewers.

Mia Kirshner has signed on for a recurring role on The CW hit, as sources confirm to Michael Ausiello she'll play Isobel, the wife of Davis' Alaric Saltzman.

The actress - who has enjoyed extended runs on 24 and The L Word - will debut on January 21, the date on which The Vampire Diaries returns from hiatus... and we know what you're thinking:

Yes, Alaric told Jenna his wife had passed away. Word is she'll be seen in flashbacks because she was killed... by a main character on the show!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
