The Vampire Diaries TV SeriesWe have a handful of weeks to wait until the arrival of his character Jonathan Gilbert in Mystic Falls on April 15th (see a first look here), but David Anders recently spoke with Starry Constellation Magazine to talk Vampire Diaries. He drops some interesting tidbits about his role as Elena and Jeremy’s uncle, how he’ll be going head to head with Damon, Stefan, and Alaric, and how long we can expect Jonathan to stick around Mystic Falls (it’s longer than you’d think!).

Q. Executive producer Julie Plec has said your character will further complicate matters, can you tell us a bit more about your characters relationship with Damon?

A. Just like his great grandfather, the original Johnathan Gilbert in 1864, he knows far too much about vampires, more than he should know about vampires. So I’m a know-it-all and I hold the information that I have over Damon and Stefan’s heads threatening to expose them in Mystic Falls if they don’t play ball with me. There is a lot more than that which I can’t really go into.

Read the entire interview at StarryMag. Cool factoid: His girlfriend was a big book fan back in the day!

    :DDDDD

    Apparently he’ll be around for a while. That makes me grin so much. The weather’s nice outside. David Anders will be around Vampire Diaries. What more can a girl ask for?
