Vampire Diaries Exclusive: The Return of Malese Jow!

at . Comments

She shocked Vampire Diaries fans with her return on the season two finale.

But Malese Jow was just as surprised as any of us when she got the phone call alerting her that she'd be needed again on set in Atlanta. When Anna died, did the actress have any clue she's be asked back?

"I had absolutely no idea," Jow told me over the phone today, adding that she never worked so hard to keep a secret and a lot of friends "were mad at me once the finale aired."

As Anna

What can she tell us about season three? Very little, of course. Both she and Kayla Ewell (Vicki) are "finding out things as we go along." But the young actress assures fans that all cast and crew members are working harder than ever on the episodes ahead.

Having only seen one episode prior to landing the role, Jow is now a full-fledged Vampire Diaries fan. She's "impressed with the serious and creepy and dramatic" tone of the series, considering how easy it would be fall into the cheesy trap of other supernatural programs.

As for the cast?

"They're just so humble and nice," Jow said.

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

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
