Maiara Walsh Maiara Walsh

Maiara Walsh, who played Gaby's and Carlos' bratty, over-sexed niece Ana on last season's Desperate Housewives, is headed to Mystic Falls to cause more even trouble. In Vampire Diaries' Oct. 7 episode, the 22-year-old actress will appear as Sarah, a high schooler who likes to party. Woo-hoo! Crack open the coffins and pour me some blood!

Vampire Diaries
executive producer Kevin Williamson tells me, "Sarah is a girl who sets her eyes on Jeremy and encourages him to party it up at the Lockwood house." (And by Lockwood house, we're now talking Werewolf Central.)

Since Maiara now has a good chance of being killed off by both vampires and werewolves, I wish her the best of luck in Mystic Falls. She's a sweet actress whose Housewives character just never took off. Last we saw of Ana Solis, she was headed off to New York City to pursue a modeling career just like her Aunt Gaby did back in her day. At least I think that's what happened to her. I sort of tuned her character out after she got all caught up with those Bolen neighbors.
