You may wanna rethink this whole college thing, Elena and Caroline.

We know you're already moved in, but is it too late to unpack those bags? To transfer to a different school? To at least change your schedule?

During our set visit to The Vampire Diaries last week, we sat for a few minutes with Rick Cosnett, an Australian actor who will be using an American accent on the series... and causing some serious problems for two of his freshman students.

As outlined in the following video interview, Dr. Wes Maxfield isn't kind. He isn't helpful. And he knows a lot more than he initially lets on about Mystic Falls and his supernatural surroundings. Uh-oh. Watch now to get an idea of what to expect from the character; to learn whether he'll go shirtless; and to discover that not every cast member is an expert at Tweeting:

Other exclusive interviews from this set visit include:

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
