David Gallagher to Play Role in Klaus and Stefan's "Great Summer Ripper Road Show"

at . Comments

Little known fact: former 7th Heaven star David Gallagher originally read for both Damon and Stefan on The Vampire Diaries.

He didn't land either, of course, but the actor left enough of an impression on producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec that he'll appear on the first two episodes of season three as a werewolf in Tennessee named Ray Sutton.

Klaus vs. Ray

Look for this character to run into Klaus and Stefan on the premiere.

“They’re actually hunting for me, so when I finally encounter them, I get swept into Klaus’ master plan that he has developed around Ray. It’s not the friendliest of encounters,” Gallagher tells Entertainment Weekly. “I think the audience is really gonna eat it up. It really has to do with Klaus’ vision of the future.”

Which would be?!? No one is saying.

But Plec does make it rather clear that Ray won't be around to see how it goes, saying the arc "does not end well for him."

"It has a lot to do with what I call Klaus and Stefan’s ‘great summer ripper road show,’ and where Stefan is in his relationship with Klaus. Ray comes into that storyline and puts Stefan in a position where he has to show his loyalty to Klaus at the expense of this other person.”

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.


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.
