Happy 27th Birthday, Michael Trevino!

at . Comments

Let's get the bad news out of the way first: Michael Trevino will not appear on The Vampire Diaries at all over the next five episodes, as Tyler needs time away to control his sire bond to Klaus.

But here's some good news for the actor: he turns 27 today!

Set to Turn

Trevino was first introduced to CW fans on season one of 90210. He then made a successful transition to Mystic Falls, kicking off his run on VD as nothing more than a bully who gave Jeremy a hard time.

But Tyler's transformation into an integral character got underway when uncle Mason stopped by for a visit, the Lockwood werewolf curse grew in importance and then, of course, Tyler and Caroline started their journey Forwood.

So, to an actor who has come a very long way, we say: happy birthday! And, also: hurry back soon! Mystic Falls isn't the same without you.

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]
