Courtney Ford Previews Character on The Vampire Diaries

by at . Comments

Courtney Ford is coming to The Vampire Diaries.

The former Dexter star will recur on season two as Vanessa Monroe, a Duke University graduate student who assists Alaric and Damon with Isobel's research.

As you might expect, this character has a "conflict," Ford tells E! News.

"She studies all this wonderful mythology and folklore, but half of her is a complete skeptic. Half of her is a believer, and half of her is a skeptic, and she goes back and forth. It's a big conflict for her," said the actress.

Ford also made it pretty clear Vanessa would hook up with a male character on the show, but quickly added: "I want to tell you so much, but I can't. They'll kill me if I reveal too much!"

Honestly, this is The Vampire Diaries. They'll probably kill you anyway.

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

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
