Sara Canning has her pick of hot dudes on the set of “The Vampire Diaries” (Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Zach Roerig… do we need to go on?), but the 22-year-old actress, who plays Elena and Jeremy’s Aunt Jenna on the show (we know! She’s so young!), told Betty Confidential that she wouldn’t actually date any of them. “The guys are nice, smart, and easy on the eyes, but they’re family to me,” she said.
She couldn’t even decide on which fictional man she’d choose, instead opting for a fusion of several. “In reality, I definitely go for a guy who is driven and has a good soul, but is also funny and bold,” Sara said. “And he’s gotta be able to keep me on my toes and challenge me. Doesn’t that sound like a mixture of Matt, Stefan, and Damon?”
On the show, Sara’s character, Jenna, is dating history teacher Alaric, played by Matt Davis, whom Sara said she gets along with well. “Matt’s so fun to work with,” she said, “a total goof with a big heart. We have the same sense of humor, and he keeps me laughing all the time on set.”
