Enzo was revealed to be a dark figure from Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) past. The two went through a rough time in the ‘50s when they were imprisoned and experimented upon by the Augustine Society. They’ve had a rocky relationship — thanks to Damon leaving Enzo to die a fiery death — but we’ve really loved the Denzo dynamic so far.
At the ATV Festival panel discussion in Atlanta on February 8, we learned that Michael had almost gone over to another show during the Christmas break, but he elected to stay withTVD — but what made him stay?
“A lot of it was because of the character you guys had given me. Enzo — he’s a really interesting guy and I wanted to explore him more,” Michael revealed. “I also would have been really upset about not coming back because I told everyone I was coming back and if I was to just not turn up and turned up on another show, they’d be like, ‘That guy’s a dick, man.’ It was mostly because I’m drawn to playing interesting characters and the fact that Enzo is so interesting was a really heavy reason for me wanting to stay, but also all these guys are lovely. I’ve had a fantastic time working here and didn’t wanna not come back.“
Phew, we’re glad Michael decided to stick it out! Not only have we fallen in love with Enzo on the show, but we’ve also been swooned many times by Michael, thanks to his amazing singing voice. Apparently this dude has a storied music past.
We don’t want to imagine a world without Enzo, so we’re thrilled Michael found his way onto TV.
