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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
