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

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
