Vampire Diaries Intel on Harper and Jonathan Gilbert

by at . Comments

When The Vampire Diaries returns on March 25, viewers will quickly meet a pair of new characters.

First up: Harper. He's the vampire we got a glimpse of as the previous episode concluded, awakening and walking out of the tomb. Says producer Julie Plec:

"We'll... follow him on his journey as he sets up shop in Mystic Falls and who he sets up shop with."

Played by Sterling Sulieman, take a look at Harper from "A Few Good Men" below:


As for David Anders as Jonathan Gilbert? He'll guide Jeremy along a journey, one producer Kevin Williamson describes as "dark." He also says about the character:

"He surfaces when it comes time to sell [Jeremy and Elena's] dad's doctor's office, but he's [really] there because he wants something and he'll fight to the finish to get it."
