First Look at Elena's Adoptive Parents on 'The Vampire Diaries'


Elena's adoptive father and mother, played by James MacDonald and Erin Beute, will appear in flashback scenes that show how they died.

"The Vampire Diaries" fans will finally meet Elena's adoptive parents in the third season finale which is slated to air May 10. A portrait of the happy family has now been shared with the mortal beauty being sandwiched between her father Grayson Gilbert and her mother Miranda Gilbert.

Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert, played by James MacDonald and Erin Beute respectively, will appear in flashback scenes in the season ender titled "The Departed". "One of the things we want to do in the finale is explore a time for Elena when life was simpler," executive producer Julie Plec told TV Guide. "She had parents and no vampires in her life."

However, the family's perfect life would soon end when their car veered off a bridge. "Elena almost died with them but Stefan saved her," Plec reminded viewers of how Elena survived the car accident that killed Grayson and Miranda.

For the filming of this underwater scene, the actors had to take scuba lessons. Nina Dobrev, who had her scuba diving certification in Bora Bora before the show required her to do so, shared her experience shooting 12 feet underwater in Atlanta. "It's something I hopefully will never have to experience in real life - trying to survive underwater while trying to save other people," she said.

"It was quite intense and a little scary," the Elena depicter went on gushing. "I'm used to being underwater with a tank, but having to act without the tank is completely different. We were in the water two days for eight hours a day. By the end, I was exhausted and slept like a baby."
