There was a glimpse of Galen Vaughn in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 13, “Into the Wild,” but he’ll be all up in Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) business in the next episode. Charlie Bewley spoke with Alloy Entertainment about his character and the show’s love triangle. 

Obviously, as part of the Twilight Saga, Charlie is no stranger to vamps, and he misses some of their supernatural powers playing a member of the Five on TVD. “Vaughn is like Bear Grylls on a vengeance mission — and everyone loves Bear. But Bear can’t fly,” says Charlie.

When asked about the show’s love triangle — between Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev), and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) — Charlie admitted fans probably don’t want to hear his opinion. “I cannot believe these two brothers toss around a girl they supposedly love, neither can I believe that Elena willfully hops into bed with one after the next, and back. Sire bond is no excuse,” he said.

That was enough to get some angry tweets defending Elena, but it was Charlie’s response on Twitter that really upset people:

“What Charlie Bewley said about the love triangle and Elena was absolutely true. It was his response tweet to fans that was inappropriate,” one fan tweeted.

Back in November, after Elena and Damon had sex right after her breakup with Stefan, executive producer Julie Plec reminded everyone in an interview with Zap2It that they are fictional characters, saying, “In the real world, would it happen that quickly? Maybe not. But I do think that the punctuation on the breakup is her finally giving in to these feelings for Damon, and then to raise the question of ‘Oh, God. Is that what she really felt or is it all part of the supernatural link between them?’” 

There’s much more to Charlie’s interview at Alloy Entertainment, including him gushing about Ian Somerhalder and Joseph Morgan (Klaus).
