Sherwood Park News interviews Sara: “We’re all really excited to come back this season.”

Sherwood Park’s got its very own blood sucker, and she’s getting stronger by the day.

Well, OK, she’s not a vampire, but Sara Canning, a Sherwood Park native, is about to start taping the second season of Vampire Diaries, which airs on the CTV in Canada and the CW Network in the United States.

Vampire Diaries’ Newest Character Is All About “Conflict” – and Maybe Sexytime, Too

Courtney Ford isn’t afraid of blood.

Ford spilled plenty of the red stuff this past season on Dexter as the Trinity Killer’s murderous daughter, now she’s joining the bloodsuckers on The Vampire Diaries as a vampire scholar.
