David Gallagher to Play Role in Klaus and Stefan's "Great Summer Ripper Road Show"

at .

Little known fact: former 7th Heaven star David Gallagher originally read for both Damon and Stefan on The Vampire Diaries.

He didn't land either, of course, but the actor left enough of an impression on producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec that he'll appear on the first two episodes of season three as a werewolf in Tennessee named Ray Sutton.

Klaus vs. Ray

Look for this character to run into Klaus and Stefan on the premiere.

“They’re actually hunting for me, so when I finally encounter them, I get swept into Klaus’ master plan that he has developed around Ray. It’s not the friendliest of encounters,” Gallagher tells Entertainment Weekly. “I think the audience is really gonna eat it up. It really has to do with Klaus’ vision of the future.”

Which would be?!? No one is saying.

But Plec does make it rather clear that Ray won't be around to see how it goes, saying the arc "does not end well for him."

"It has a lot to do with what I call Klaus and Stefan’s ‘great summer ripper road show,’ and where Stefan is in his relationship with Klaus. Ray comes into that storyline and puts Stefan in a position where he has to show his loyalty to Klaus at the expense of this other person.”

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie, will haunt me, forever.


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.
