The Vampire Diaries: Casting for Bonnie's Mother

by at . Comments

She's lost her grams, but Bonnie will soon regain her mother.

A CW casting notice has gone out for Abby Bennett, as The Vampire Diaries is seeking an actress to portray Bonnie's mom that fits the following description:

38-44, African-American, a beautiful but troubled woman who is burdened by the secrets of her past that led her to abandon her daughter. As determined and fiery as any Bennett woman.

Bonnie B. Chillin

The role has the potential to be recurring. Got any suggestions, TV Fanatics? What actress should play this key character? Sound off in our Vampire Diaries forum!

Though I'm sure Stacey Dash would turn it down due to her move out of ATL, I still think she would be PERFECT as Bonnie's mom! And the actresses favor a lot. Next suggestion would be Jada Pinkett Smith. I think she could definitely deliver in the line of fiery determination of any Bennett woman.

Stacy Dash would not do it as she apparently wanted to be with her family more in LA hence why she quit Single Ladies (who film in Atlanta too like TVD), so that would be no. I too would love to see Vanessa Williams also but since she still on DH, I am doubtful, we'll see her. Salli would be great though or Robin Givens. However no offense to the writers wouldn't know how to write a fierceness require for someone like Givens. Also all these actresses need some sexy in the character as well.

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

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.
