The Vampire Diaries returns for another season of epic romance, suspense and a bloody good thrill ride. Based on the best-selling book series, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is the story of two vampire brothers, obsessed with the same gorgeous girl, who are battling to control the fate of an entire town.
When Stefan and Damon Salvatore first returned to their hometown of Mystic Falls, Virginia, it was for very different reasons. Yet both brothers were drawn to Elena Gilbert, who bears a striking resemblance to Katherine Pierce, the beautiful but ruthless vampire the brothers knew and loved -- in 1864. After surviving the return of the vengeful Katherine and the wrench she threw into their love triangle, Stefan and Damon would face their greatest challenge yet -- the arrival of Klaus, one of the powerful "Original" vampires. Last season revealed the history of Klaus and the Original family, as well as the surprising friendship Klaus and his sister Rebekah shared with Stefan decades earlier. Klaus' return led to Stefan's descent back to his violent "Ripper" ways and as Elena and Damon worked to bring Stefan back from the edge, they struggled with the guilt of their growing bond. Meanwhile, Klaus found himself irresistibly drawn to Caroline Forbes, forcing Caroline's boyfriend, Tyler Lockwood, to break his sire bond to Klaus and claim Caroline as his own. Finally, the life of Alaric Saltzman, Elena and Jeremy's trusted teacher and guardian, took a terrifying turn when witchcraft -- and Bonnie's unwilling help -- turned Alaric into the ultimate vampire hunter.
Season four begins with the knowledge that everything is changing, as Elena and her friends enter the final stretch of high school before graduation sends them off on different paths. But the friends' bond to their home town of Mystic Falls takes on a deeper meaning when a new villain seems intent on destroying it.
Katerina Graham stars as Bonnie Bennett, the girl with psychic powers who is Elena's best friend in the new drama 'The Vampire Diaries.'
Born in Geneva, Switzerland, Graham speaks four languages, and was exposed to different cultures from an early age. Her father, Joseph, was a music executive. Her grandfather was a United Nations Ambassador from Liberia. The family moved to Los Angeles, California when Graham was 4 years old.
Graham began doing commercials at the age of 6, appearing in spots for Barbie, K-Mart, Pop Tarts, and Edison. Her first big break came when she replaced a young Christina Milian as the host of the series 'Movie Surfers.' Her television credits include guest spots on such shows as 'Joan of Arcadia,' 'Like Family,' 'Grounded for Life,' 'Lizzie McGuire,' 'CSI: Las Vegas,' 'The O.C.,' 'Malcolm in the Middle,' 'Strong Medicine' and 'Hannah Montana.'
At the age of 15, Graham was chosen by choreographer Fatima to perform at the BET Awards as a background dancer for Lil' Bow Wow. That experience led to other stints as a background dancer for Missy Elliott, Pharrell Williams, Jamie Foxx and choreographers Hi Hat and Michael Rooney.
In addition to her acting and dancing abilities, Graham wrote and sang a song titled 'Derailed,' which was featured in a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. At 17, Graham was selected by the Coca-Cola Company as part of an international campaign to market their soft drink Fanta. While promoting the campaign as a member of the 'Fantanas' (as Capri/Strawberry), Graham simultaneously completed her degree in recording engineering. She recently finished a world tour with the supergroup Black-Eyed Peas, and her voice is featured on Will.I.Am's solo release 'Songs About Girls' ('I Got It From My Mama') and 'The Donque Song,' featuring Snoop Dogg.
