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

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
