Coming to Mystic Falls: More Vampires! As previously revealed, Lauren Cohan will play a key role this season on The Vampire Diaries.

The actress will debut on the episode “Rose,” as a character by that same name. She’ll portray a centuries-old blood sucker with a connection to Katherine – and she won’t show up alone.

Entertainment Weekly confirms that Trent Ford and Daniel Gillies will also appear in Mystic Falls next month, taking on the roles of vampires Trevor and Elijah.

Why Did The Vampire Diaries‘ Kevin Williamson Want Caroline to Turn? The Vampire Diaries‘ second season took a sharp turn when one of the show’s innocent teens, Caroline (Candice Accola), became a vampire.  Executive producer Kevin Williamson says he never doubted which of the series’ humans he wanted to take to the dark side.

“I said, ‘We need a game-changer, and if one of these characters had to be a vampire, who would you want to see?’  I wanted to see Caroline,” Williamson told

But as Roerig says , Matt’s not out of the woods just yet.  “Katherine is indeed the puppeteer in this show,” he says about the most vicious vampire of them all. “And I’m proud to be a puppet in this next episode.”
