Taylor Kinney Speaks on Vampire Diaries Character, Family Feud

at . Comments

In an exclusive interview with TV Fanatic, Michael Trevino said his character of Tyler would be more involved than ever before on season two of The Vampire Diaries.

The entire family of the Lockwoods, in fact, will be on full display as Uncle Mason debuts on the September 9 premiere, showing up for his brother's funeral. Said Taylor Kinney, who will play this key role, to TV Guide Magazine:

"Mason has learned to harness his rage and is going to serve as a mentor to Tyler. I've come to teach Tyler that there are choices he can make to control his destiny as a human...or otherwise."

Loyal viewers don't need to be told what the actor means by "otherwise," do they?

Kinney adds that his character doesn't exactly get along with Damon. But this is nothing new between the families.

"We don't get along," he says. "Historically, the Salvatores haven't gotten along with the Lockwoods for ages, and having a new Lockwood in town doesn't sit well."

Fans will have to wait until next month to learn more. In the meantime, they can visit our Vampire Diaries spoilers section for more season two scoop!

Well in case you haven't figured it out by now, I'm a sociopath. I know, shocker. I like being a sociopath, ya know? I'm not burned by things like guilt or love.
