If you’re going to play the brother of Vampire Diaries’ Original siblings Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and Rebekah (Claire Holt), you need to be three things: tough, gorgeous, and... tan? According to TVD newcomer Nathaniel Buzolic — who was cast as O.V. Kol in December — the powers that be told him he was too pasty.

“The vampires are quite well tanned over there," said Buzolic in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, and the Australian actor was asked to slather on the self-tanner. Perhaps because of his pallor, Buzolic’s been told he looks like a vampire more than once. "I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or not,” he said. If they’re fans of The Vampire Diaries — home to some of the hottest vamps of all time — then it’s definitely a compliment.

We’re excited to see Kol in all his slightly bronzer glory. According to IMDB, he and his brother Finn (Caspar Zafer) will emerge from their coffins in Season 3, Episode 13, “Bringing Out the Dead.”
