Want to get close to Vampire Diaries stud Ian Somerhalder? It's easy, just win a gold medal and you'll be set!
Two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of the CW's hit series The Vampire Diaries, which is one of her favorite shows.
Gabby was on the Atlanta set of the show this week to film her prime-time acting debut and got to spend some quality time with Ian, her celebrity crush, and his costar girlfriend Nina Dobrev!
Gabby will appear in the seventh episode of the upcoming season, which will air at the end of November. And unlike Ryan Lochte on 90210, the Olympic cutie is not playing herself; sources tell us this is nonspeaking cameo.
Ian, 33, tweeted a cute photo with Gabby, saying, "Eating Gabby's gold medal! Yummmmmmm..." Gabby later responded, "Love it! How does it taste!?"
The pint-size gymnast posted a photo with Nina, 23, saying, "Ladies n gentlemen give it up for @ninadobrev who is Gorgeous and an AMAZING actress!" Nina soon tweeted Gabby back with an equally as gush-worthy message: "I hope you had fun - you were great! Smile is even brighter in person." Aw!
Prior to Gabby's visit, Nina tweeted her excitement over the Olympian's guest appearance. "First thought at 530am when I woke up this morning: "What to wear when meeting an Olympian Gold Medallist?" Nina later promised to teach Gabby some yoga poses if she showed her "how to do something cool." We think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Star Candice Accola also got in on the lovefest, tweeting Gabby, "Was such a joy meeting you and your family today! Keep shining! Come back to Mystic Falls anytime xo."
