Michael Trevino plays our favorite hot-blooded werewolf of Mystic Falls, Virginia in The Vampire Diaries, but the actor himself was raised on the opposite coast.

Michael grew up in Montebello, Calif., and later in Valencia, Calif. — both cities in the greater Los Angeles area. His mother hails from Zacatecas, Mexico, and his father is also of Mexican descent.

No wonder we’ve always found him muy caliente!
