Family reunions in Mystic Falls typically end in disaster, but Kayla hints that Matt & Vicki might just buck that trend.
I know we’re all excited to see how Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) will deal with his ghosts of girlfriends past on The Vampire Diaries this season, but let’s not forget that Anna and Vicki (Kayla Ewell) have other ties to Mystic Falls aside from their broody ex-boyfriend. “There’s a whole storyline between Vicki and Matt,” Kayla tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “We’re really exploring their brother-sister relationship, which is wonderful. I mean, I just died and left and he never knew what happened.”
Part of Matt (Zach Roerig) and Vicki’s recovery process involves a stroll down memory lane, but be warned — family photos can be deceiving.
“They had asked Zach and I for photos from when we were little so they could make an album of [Matt and Vicki] as kids,” Kayla says. “My youngest brother, my real brother, looks so much like Zach — blonde hair, blue eyes, same height — so when I sent them the photos, they said, ‘Instead of trying to superimpose Zach’s head on these pictures, can we just use your brother?’ [My brother] is so stoked. He keeps calling me, like, ‘So, when do I premiere again? When am I on?’”
I think I speak for us all when I say I can’t wait to see Vicki, Matt — and Kayla’s brother — finally come face-to-face when The Vampire Diaries returns Sept. 15 on The CW.
