David Anders to Threaten Damon and Stefan on The Vampire Diaries

by at . Comments

As previously reported, David Anders is coming on board The Vampire Diaries this spring in the role of Jonathan Gilbert, Elena and Jeremy's uncle.

In a new interview, the former Alias/Heroes/24 star spoke about his character, making it sound like neither Stefan nor Damon will be pleased to see him...

On his character: Just like his great grandfather, the original Jonathan Gilbert in 1864, he knows far too much about vampires, more than he should know about vampires.  So I'm a know-it-all and I hold the information that I have over Damon and Stefan's heads threatening to expose them in Mystic Falls if they don't play ball with me.  There is a lot more than that which I can't really go into. 

On interactions with Damon: I've been having a lot of stuff with Damon, Ian Somerhalder's character, and my character is not at all afraid of Damon.  We find ourselves in a bunch of pissing contests going toe to toe.  My character proves to be a good foe for Damon.

On Jonathan vs. Alaric: [Alaric] is kind of aligned with the vampires, with Damon and Stefan, whereas I am not aligned.  That's another good tête-à-tête we have cooking up too between me and Alaric.  There is plenty of opportunity for duels.
