The Vampire Diaries - Season 3 - Latest from Zap2IT - 8th March 2012

Thanks to Bruce_F for the heads up.

First of all, yes, it's true that the Gilbert parents, Miranda and Grayson, are currently being cast. Of course, these are Elena's adoptive parents (and Jeremy's biological ones!) who died when their car crashed off Wickery Bridge before the pilot. With Wickery Bridge in the process of being restored after the fundraiser, we're leading up to a big unveiling, which is sure to bring back memories for Elena.

Fans can expect to see a flashback to the night that they died, when Stefan tried to save Elena's father -- but Grayson insisted that he save Elena, instead. As reported by E!, the actors have been asked to take scuba lessons for the underwater sequences, though our girl Nina Dobrev already has her certification, so she's all set.

(Any casting suggestions, TVD fans? Remember, they've got to be hot enough to be Jeremy's parents. Not to mention, Mr. Gilbert's got some pretty big shoes to fill as the older brother to David Anders' Uncle John.)

We'll definitely get some new information about that time in Elena's life that will impact the way we view Mystic Falls today. "The great rule of storytelling is... don't flash back if there's nothing that's going to change your life moving forward," executive producer Julie Plec says. "We'll have to see what we can uncover about that past that can would impact us today."
