Andie Star to Facilitate "Crazy Night" on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Dawn Oliveri has come on board The Vampire Diaries as Andie Star, reporter for Action News.

Okay, it's not really called Action News. But Damon just likes saying that.

Typically under compulsion from Damon - and stuck making bite-based love to him in the bathtub - Andie will play a key role in her boyfriend's plan to take down Elijah tonight. How so?

"She takes the [role] of facilitator," Oliveri tells TV Guide. "She becomes the hostess of the party, but is hypnotized. Unknowingly, she's facilitating this crazy night. It's like harboring a criminal, but you have no idea you're doing it."

Damon in a Bathtub!

Oliveri says she signed on for an "undisclosed" number of episodes and returns to film more next week.

Does she fear Andie will be disposed of by Damon when he's through with her?

"Damon thinks that he's just using her, but Andie is smarter than the girls you've seen him fall [for]. Andie is a worthy opponent, not in physicality, but in the mind. What's going to be interesting is when Andie comes to from her comatose state. She's a news reporter so she's not going to be a victim of a crime and let things happen. The unfortunate thing for Andie is she's going to want to get to the bottom of it."

Yeah. We foresee curtains in her future.

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: 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.
