Damon’s not the sort to wait around for Elena to get bored with Stefan, so who’s going to play his love interest in the meantime (though love might be a bit strong)? Someone completely inappropriate, you say?
Why not a mom? No one plays inappropriate better or sexier than Julie Cooper, and Damon’s already announced his prowess at “kissing“.
Matt’s trashtastic mother, Kelly, will blow into Mystic Falls and waste no time digging her cougar claws into Ian Somerhalder’s Damon.
“If I didn’t have Kelly and Damon hook up there would be no God,” declares Williamson with a laugh. “What’s the point of doing TV if you’re not going to put those two characters together? That’s going to be a fun relationship to explore.”
Of course, Williamson points out that Kelly Donovan has more to offer than a reputation as a bad mom and a healthy appetite for vampire sex. Clarke’s character also shares a rich history with the town’s adult population. “We’ll reveal that she was friends with Sheriff [Elizabeth] and Elena’s mother,” he says. “The three of them were really tight friends back in the day. Sheriff and Kelly, in particular, have ongoing issues to deal with.”
Mark it on your calendars, folks: March 25 is when Kelly is introduced, and these two gloriously s0-wrong-they’re-right characters will meet like it’s for the very first time.
