David Anders Joins ‘The Vampire Diaries’
It speaks to the success of âThe Vampire Diariesâ that the show is already able to pull in such big-time guest stars in its very first season. Now the well-loved David Anders is set to join the ranks of other âVampire Diariesâ guest stars such as Sean Faris, Melinda Clarke and Jasmine Guy.
Anders is best known for his roles on action-packed series like âAlias,â âHeroesâ and, most recently, â24,â Anders is expected to join the cast for a couple episodes as Jeremy and Elena’s uncle Jonathan.
Us fans of the series have already seen a different Jonathan Gilbert in the showâs flashbacks, the man who was a crucial player in the Mystic Falls vampire hunt of 1864. If the events of the most recent episode are anything to go by, it seems his namesake may arrive in town just in time for yet another big showdown with the no-longer entombed vampires.
Sources say that Uncle Jonathan wonât be coming into town to help out, but heâll be there to stir some more drama and more trouble for the poor folks of Mystic Falls. Weâll just have to wait and see if thatâs true or not. Unfortunately, David Anders wonât be seen in the next episode but instead will first appear in the April 15 episode and will recur throughout the season.
âThe Vampire Diariesâ returns Thursday, March 25, at 8 p.m. with a new episode titled âA Few Good Men.â We donât know what this big episode is about yet, but from the looks of the promo (below) itâs no doubt going to be a sexy and spine-tingling ride.
Let us know what you think of the showâs choice of David Anders playing Jonathan Gilbert. What do you think this added character will bring to the storyline?

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
