We already know that Gabby Douglas is a big-time fan of “The Vampire Diaries,” and now that the Olympic gymnast has a little bit more time in her schedule, she is even going to be making an appearance on the show this season.
This appearance was more or less confirmed in a new post on Twitter by Nina Dobrev, who had the following to say about Douglas’ appearance:
“[Gabby] is coming to The Vampire Diaries set tomorrow! Cant wait to meet and work with you girl! Dont forget to bring your bling! :P”
We are assuming that Douglas’ appearance on the show is going to be more or less some sort of passing cameo, though she will likely have a line or two. Ultimately, we equate it to an appearance that Ryan Lochte is going to be making an appearance on “90210” this season as himself. These shows ultimately are a great opportunity for Olympians to boost their profile a little bit, which is incredibly important. Unlike many other pro athletes, these people do not have many opportunities to boost their profile over the course of four years … and they have to take advantage of every opportunity that they can to show up on other programs.
Would it almost be cool if Gabby was playing a vampire or some other character on the show? No, but we have a feeling that this is not going to happen based on the fact that she doesn’t really have any acting experience.
