Lindsey R. Garrett Cast on The Vampire Diaries As...

by at . Comments

Lindsey R. Garrett is coming to Mystic Falls. The old days of Mystic Falls, that is.

TV Guide reports that the actress - a relative newcomer who had a bit role on the series premiere Revenge - will appear on an episode of The Vampire Diaries next month as Samantha Gilbert, a relative of Elena's who we only see in a flashback to 1912.

Samantha is reportedly "a bit of a gossip" and will play a role within the founding families. She'll also interact with both Stefan and Damon. Hmmm...

The Vampire Diaries is off this week, but returns on February 2 with "Bringing Out the Dead." Needless to say, WE CAN'T WAIT.

I actually don't like the books that much. I read the 1st few chapters and literally had to force myself to read the 1st two books. I also don't like the fact that Elena is turned so quickly in the books. The only thing I think is better is the character Meredith, if Dr Fell is supposed to represent her. They probably left her out at the start to make a closer bond with Caroline, Elena and Bonnie.


when if klaus is in fear of said coffin then my guess is mommy deadest, if he has been holding it for longer thant the family then maybe first love aka the first patrova.....or if its for the jest of safe keeping and his first compainion none family and before stefan... i say one of the founding family members to mistic falls????


I'm confused is this a different relative than the one they mentioned before? I love this show to pieces but sometimes I fear they are bringing in entirely way too many characters when they still have a handful who could use more development.


I don't get this,is it samantha or sage that we'll see in the 16th episode(flashback),and is it both of them that has history with the salvatores?


I want this show off the CW channel they take to many breaks.The CW channel suck's.


Another Gilbert? Isn't this supposed to be the season of the Originals?


Has anyone read the books? I just started to and I was curious if Klaus storyline is in the books? Elena, Klaus, Stefan, Damon, Bonnie and everyone are entirely different( characters in the books with different personalities, motivations and storylines. And for most of part(with exception of Caroline and Tyler), most of characters are a whole lot better and a whole lot more deeper and more interesting in the books(that goes especially for Elena) Klaus storyline is entirely different in the books. Here's a hint: There's no "original family" and he is far more than a "thousand" year old.

Thanks :)


this girl may sound a little mysterious to be playing the role of Samantha Gilbert but I mostly want to find out what happens in each episodes. I'm too excited to wait any longer and please no more with the breaks. =O =P ;P
