Andie Star to Facilitate "Crazy Night" on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Dawn Oliveri has come on board The Vampire Diaries as Andie Star, reporter for Action News.

Okay, it's not really called Action News. But Damon just likes saying that.

Typically under compulsion from Damon - and stuck making bite-based love to him in the bathtub - Andie will play a key role in her boyfriend's plan to take down Elijah tonight. How so?

"She takes the [role] of facilitator," Oliveri tells TV Guide. "She becomes the hostess of the party, but is hypnotized. Unknowingly, she's facilitating this crazy night. It's like harboring a criminal, but you have no idea you're doing it."

Damon in a Bathtub!

Oliveri says she signed on for an "undisclosed" number of episodes and returns to film more next week.

Does she fear Andie will be disposed of by Damon when he's through with her?

"Damon thinks that he's just using her, but Andie is smarter than the girls you've seen him fall [for]. Andie is a worthy opponent, not in physicality, but in the mind. What's going to be interesting is when Andie comes to from her comatose state. She's a news reporter so she's not going to be a victim of a crime and let things happen. The unfortunate thing for Andie is she's going to want to get to the bottom of it."

Yeah. We foresee curtains in her future.

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

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
