Elena Gilbert as a Vampire: First Imprisoned Look!

at . Comments

Non-spoiler alert: Elena Gilbert will transition into a member of the undead on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere.

Actual spoiler alert: She'll be placed behind bars on that same episode.

TV Guide Magazine has published the first photo of the new Elena. Check it out below and get a glimpse at this bloodthirsty creature. Also, take note of her location. Who has her locked up? Her friends for her own protection, perhaps?

Elena as a Vampire

Nona Dobrev has said her character won't want to eat people simply because she's now a vampire, leaving her "hungry and moody." We can imagine!

Watch our interview with Dobrev at this summer's Comic-Con for more scoop from the actress and check out another Vampire Diaries premiere picture now.

think you guys who are saying she's a boring actress are confusing her character with the actress herself. I mean, come on, She also played Katherine. She was the polar opposite of Elena. So she can pull off two roles..she ain't no Meryl Streep. Frankly, she is actually very average...its not like it takes serious acting skills to pull off Katherine's character. Anyway, yeah, everyone is entitled to their opinion but in terms of the acting department on this no one beats Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies...

Best look for Elena...in the best location too. Whoever has her looked up is doing Mystic Falls a huge favour. The brothers should just through her a blood bag or too a day and let her rot with her bland personality and overkill annoying virtues.


I agree with bored now I mean who really cares about Elena at this point she has been extremely boring and everyone else on the show outshines her. Plus she's a bland actress with no personality all she does is get in the way and complain...


Maybe Elena has asked to be locked up herself so that she can't hurt anyone. Where on earth is she? It doesn't look like any of the other 'cages' used to trap vampires like the old Forbes jail cell in Season Two or the cell Stefan was trapped in in Season One. Looking forward to vampire Elena, I hope she's mean to Rebekah and Klaus, when he returns, those two don't have working brain cell between them.


There were rumors that Elena might kill the Preacher because there will be a death and a funeral in the second episode of Season 4 because a young lady (daughter of the Preacher, who Jeremy and Elena knew way back) will return for the funeral. Maybe that is why she is imprisoned. Who knows? I guess we will have to watch to find out.


Everybody leave Bored Now alone, people are entitled to their opinion. Obviously Elena is going to drink human blood, otherwise she dies. It will probably be Matt's as he is going to feel major guilt over killing her by running the truck off the bridge.

For some reason I like how Elena looks on this photo, her hair I mean, cos really that needs to change, the girl needs a make-over ASAP!
Frankly the problem is not the clothes. Elena might dress like she gets her clothes from Salvation Army, but it would be easy to overlook if there was personality behind the rags, so to say. Sadly Elena is boring both on the inside and on the outside.


I really sound lame. I pretend I hate the show yet I have watched all the episodes. It's time for change. Sorry fans. I suck!!!!!


Am sorry vampire diaries fans, I have realized I sound like a broken record but am so bored with my life. I really need help. But am going to start watching Anger management. May be Charlie Sheen can help me out. I have never had a positive thought in my life. Pray for me.

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.
