David Anders on The Vampire Diaries: First Look

at . Comments

While The CW is depriving us of new episodes of The Vampire Diaries until March 25, at least the network continues to release sneak peeks at key scenes and guest stars on the way.

Sexy case in point: Damon hooking up with Matt's mother.

Less sexy case in point, below: David Anders as Elena and Jeremy’s uncle, Jonathan Gilbert.

“When we started talking about this role, I immediately thought, ‘What about Sark from Alias?’ Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly. “We called his agent the next day and the day after that [the deal was] done.”

David Anders on The Vampire Diaries

Anders, who has recently appeared on Heroes and 24, debuts on the April 15. He arrives in Mystic Falls in time for Elena and Jeremy to sell their father’s doctor office.

“He has to sign the escrow papers but he isn’t quite ready to give the office up,” said producer Kevin Williamson. “But like everyone else in town, he’s there for something [else]. His intentions are not pure.”

Oh my goodness, I think this just elevates this show to all time favorite of 2009. SARK! on TVD! ahhh (I kinda squealed like a fan-girl, and I so don't do that). He's the best good looking/ slightly villainous/ interesting character actor. (and they kinda wasted him on 24 this season!) Plus David Anders is from Oregon- go OREGON! who hoooo! I wonder if they want him to have a British accent, of if he'll finally get to use her real accent...

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.


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.
