The Vampire Diaries to Introduce...

by at . Comments

It was a question we asked on the season three preview edition of The Vampire Diaries Round Table: Which member of Klaus and Elijah's family do you next want to meet?

And while it may not have been the response of any of our panelists, The CW has now provided answer: The brothers' mother is coming to town!

Klaus at the Bar

We'll soon meet Esther, insiders confirm to TV Guide, the mother of the Original family. Look for her to pop up in a flashback that dates back centuries. Described as "strong and as fierce," the character's intentions will be to protect her loved ones at all costs.

No word yet on the exact date on which Esther will debut, or if the role has been cast. Got any suggestions if not? Share them here and/or in our Vampire Diaries forum!

UPDATE: The role has been cast!

i wanna know from who is klaus and rebecca running from ?


Okay is it just me or is Klaus a weak werevamp…. I mean why does he waste time on turning others or making an army....he needs to take lessons from Eric of true blood...cutthroat and ruthless!! I’m just sayin.


Ooh monica belluccu.. She is freakin gorgeous and sexy and I'm a girl. My boyfriend would actually watch....she would be perfect


does that mean klaus didn't kill her then - or is it a flashback? wonder if she'll put klaus back in his place!!


I wonder if Klaus's family was considered royalty? Therefore, whose family is worst: Klaus's family or Prince Louis's family?


I don't know why but I keep thinking Monica Bellucci would be perfect for this, we don't need the mother to look ancient she's a freakin vampire


Can't wait to meet the mother of the original family. Should be very interesting. ughhhh.... the wait !!


This season just keeps getting better! Can't wait :-)


Can't wait!
