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.

I love Malese Jow. She's also on Nickelodeon's The Troop season 2 as a hal monster/half human teenager.


I love the fact that Anna returns. I home Pearl makes an appearance as well.


TEAM ANNA!!! I really hope that she and Jeremy get back together, or at least have scenes together this season :)

@quinn, but I suppose it's these type of genres that allow characters to keep coming back. Admittedly, Kevin Williamson doesn't have a precedent of bringing characters back from the dead from Dawson's Creek (except Dead Abby), but Joss Whedon has timely allowed much favorite characters to come back when the the main plot needed it.

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 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.
