TVGuide.com caught up with Matt Davis, aka the extremely hot new History teacher, Alaric on The Vampire Diaries. In the interview, Matt talks about how he “hopped on a plane, not knowing what he was getting into”. Here are a few snippets!
TVGuide.com: What did they tell you about Alaric going in?
Davis: I hopped on that plane not knowing what I was getting myself into. Alaric definitely has a past, and he’s there to add a heightened sense of tension to the story line.
TVGuide.com: Is Alaric a good guy or a bad guy?
Davis: It’s not so clearly defined. He has a dark side, and I think he’s not always going to do the right thing. How that compels him remains to be seen.
TVGuide.com: Tell me about Alaric’s secret research.
Davis: It’s of the paranormal persuasion. I’m here to play the teacher; the hobbies of my research are pretty much kept secret at this point.
