The Vampire Diaries Casts Bonnie's Mother

at . Comments

Prepare to meet the mother, Vampire Diaries fans.

The show has cast actress Persia White (Girlfriends) in the key role of Abby Bennett, the woman who abandoned Bonnie when she was young. The character will first appear on January 19 and may stick around beyond that.

Look for Abby to have serious guilt issues over leaving her daughter, and for many secrets to leak over over the reasons why she did so.

In other major casting news, The Vampire Diaries announced that Torrey DeVitto - yes, Paul Wesley's wife! - will also join the series in early 2012 as a young doctor who gets close to Alaric. She'll appear on the first episode of the new year.

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.
