Vampire Diaries Casting: Who Should Play Bonnie's Father?

by at . Comments

We may need to wait months until The Vampire Diaries Season 4 graces our screens, but numerous interviews have revealed a few upcoming spoilers/tidbits. To wit:

  • Julie Plec foresees Elena as a "supernatural heroine" of some kind after she transitions.
  • The friendship between Caroline and Stefan will deepen.
  • Klaus is far from dead.
  • We'll meet Bonnie's father at some point.
Bonnie and Jeremy

It's on that final point we focus here: What actor should take on this key role?

The Vampire Diaries has had great success casting relative no names in big roles (see Morgan, Joseph and Gillies, Daniel), as it's not the sort of show to ever rely on stunt casting. But it's still fun to speculate... even if some of our following speculations are a tad more wishful than realistic.

However Marisa, black people come in all colors, black and white do not automatically make mocha or caramel like everyone seems to believe here. Genetics is far more complicated than that.

I was thinking why aren't any white actors on this list as who hell said her father was black, so to automatically assume its black actor is prejudicial. Her father from how Abby's full name was not Sheila's son. His last name is Wilson.

I think her father will be white, since Kat Graham's skin is so pale for a black person. She's probably mixed.

Oh and about Bonnie's dad, I think Seth Gilliam would be a real good pick. He also plays Dr. Deaton on Teen Wolf.

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.
