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.

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

Hey, Blondie. Today isn't the worst day of your life. Today and tomorrow, it's a cakewalk. There'll be people around you day in and day out like they're afraid to leave you alone. The worst day? That's next week when there's nothing but quiet. Just a heads up.
