Happy 27th Birthday, Michael Trevino!

by 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.

5 episodes is way too long.i'm sure matt has never been absent for that long and he's the most boring character in this show.Anyway,happy bday micheal.You r such a great actor.Wish u long life and prosperity.

TVD has too many characters. Abby now, Elijah back, getting Finn, Kol, Becky will be back plus guest stars Sage (flashback), Samantha Gilbert (flashback), and Bill. Tyler is a main character but he misses a bunch of episodes at a time. At least we know why he's not around. Presumably Matt works a lot of triple shifts when he's not around. What does Caroline do when she's not in an episode? Actually she hasn't done much at all since Ghost World (stuff happens to her though) When's Bonny going to be a real character instead of a plot device? 90% of the series is DES.

For some werewolf fans, it will suck to see Tyler off the picture for 5 episdoes, but I still wish Michael Trevino a Happy Birthday.;) I'm more excited to find out what else happens in the show. =)

No, that sucks. Five whole episodes?! That's way too long without Tyler..

As long as the break accomplishes something and Tyler isn't just moping then it's fine. He didn't need such a long break last season.

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.
