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.
