The Vampire Diaries: Casting for "Protective Parent"

at . Comments

We will meet Bonnie's father on Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries. This has already been announced by Julie Plec.

But now we can seemingly break the news of that absentee dad's name, considering a casting notice that went out today which calls for an African-American man in his late 30s/early 40s named Rudy Owens.

The note described him as a "protective parent."

Serious Bonnie

Very few mentions of Bonnie's father have been made over the years, with the exception of a couple references to his displeasure of his daughter's involvement in witchcraft.

What will bring him into the picture this fall? It's unclear, but prepare to meet Rudy on Episode 10.

And prepare for Bonnie to take drastic, possibly life-altering action on Thursday's Vampire Diaries season premiere.

So... who should portray Bonnie's dad?

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.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
