'The Vampire Diaries' Mikael: Meet Sebastian Roche's vampire who hunts vampires


In the final moments of last week's doozy of a "Vampire Diaries" episode, Katherine (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) broke into a crypt and woke up a very cranky vampire.This is actually our second time meeting Mikael, played by "Supernatural's" Sebastian Roché -- he's the vampire hunter police chief with the wooden bullets who crashed Klaus and Stefan's party in the 1920s.First of all, his name is spelled Mikael, a fact that producers kept under-wraps initially, just as they kept the spelling of Rebekah's name a secret. The old-world spellings certainly betray the ages of the vampires in question.It remains to be seen for sure whether Mikael is an Original vampire. There's a notable absence of a white-oak silver dagger in his chest when Katherine opens the tomb. However, he is wrapped in chains, and has clearly dessicated without being able to feed on blood, so it's likely that he was never killed...
