Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas to appear on 'Vampire Diaries'
Mystic Falls is about to get hit with Olympic fever. Gold medal gymnast -- and self-proclaimed "The Vampire Diaries" fanatic -- Gabrielle Douglas will make a guest appearance in the seventh episode of season four of the CW drama, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The episode is slated to air Nov. 29.
Nina Dobrev hinted at Douglas' Atlanta visit on Tuesday evening, when she tweeted: "@gabrielledoug is coming to The Vampire Diaries set tomorrow! Cant wait to meet and work with you girl! Dont forget to bring your bling! :P." She followed it up Wednesday morning by writing to her 2.75 million followers: "First thought at 530am when I woke up this morning : "What to wear when meeting an Olympian Gold Medallist [sic]?"
Details of Douglas' cameo were unavailable, but the casting should not come as a surprise.
In August, the cast of "The Vampire Diaries" made a congratulatory video following Douglas' gold medal performance in the Olympic all-around gymnastics finals. Douglas and executive producer Julie Plec also communicated via Twitter about a possible cameo in the new season.
Douglas has been making the rounds following her Olympic experience. She and her "Fierce Five" teammates appeared on an episode of CBS reality series "Big Brother" and Douglas, who will be penning her first book, was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey.
"The Vampire Diaries" returns Oct. 11 on the CW.
