Mia Kirshner sinks her teeth into her newest role


We all know that Jenny Schecter can suck out your soul. And we all know that Jenny is dead. So now, it only follows, that Jenny is now a vampire. Redundant, I know.

Mia Kirshner’s guest starring role on The Vampire Diaries is growing some fangs (literally and figuratively) with the revelation that she is one of the undead. While we haven’t seen her show her vamp self yet, we have seen her in flashbacks as history teacher Alaric Saltzman paranormal researcher wife.

We’ve also learned that Mia’s character, Isobel, is the birth mother to Nina Dobrev’s Elena. But she gave her up for adoption shortly after her birth and made abundantly clear that she wants nothing to do with her in the present. And, oh yeah, Damon turned her. I know — this show is crazy!

Now, metaphorical vampire Jenny aside, this will be the first of two vampiric roles for the former The L Word star. She has also been cast as the vampire queen in the sequel 30 Days of Night: Dark Days. Hmm, is some type casting happening? Is Mia now the go-to bloodsucker of both actual blood and also all sanity as we know it?

Well, her season six The L Word clip reel certainly makes a strong case for either.


OK, perhaps more crazy than bitey. But still, it’s not a big leap. So, who is excited to see Mia get her vamp on?
