Getting killed off The Vampire Diaries is both a blessing and a curse — just ask Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman). What’s this we hear about the 36-year-old actor almost leaving the hit CW show behind for good?
“It was very uncomfortable for me to come back as a guest star,” the actor told Digital Spy about being killed off and then making sporadic returns. “I felt very much removed and out of sync with the whole experience. I felt awkward, and I thought, ‘I don’t think I can keep saying yes to coming back in these little guest star appearances here and there, [because] it’s just too hard for me emotionally.’”
Sounds like Matt was extremely close to leaving the show behind for good before Julie Plec brought him back as a full-time star for Season 6, having him escape the Other Side in the Season 5 finale. Good thing that happened before he spewed his feels, right?
“I was prepared to have that conversation with Julie, but before I could say anything, she was like, ‘So… we’re thinking about bringing you back — how do you feel about that?’” he continued. “I was thrilled to be able to come back. I had felt very much in limbo with Alaric for the last two seasons. Now I feel like it’s even better than it was before.”

At the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con “The Vampire Diaries” panel on Saturday, July 26, actor Matt Davis and executive producer Julie Plec responded to the fan questions about returning character Alaric Saltzman. The 36-year-old actor and show producer teased that things will not initially go well for Alaric in Mystic Falls after returning from the Other Side.
Executive producer Julie Plec spilled some details about the fan-favorite character during the panel that Damian Holbrook of TV Guide magazine moderated. According to Plec, Alaric Saltzman will be struggling during the time jump on the CW TV series about four months after the Other Side collapsed with Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham).
TVD fans can recall that the teacher/vampire hunter was transformed into an Original vampire before he died. “After being a weird vampire and a ghost for all this time he’s assimilating into his life as this creature he never wanted to be,” Plec teased in the TV Guide interview.
The executive producer added that Alaric Saltzman will still try to go back to what he was like as a human being but things will not be easy for him. One of those things appears to be Enzo (Michael Malarkey) because Julie Plec hinted that the Augustine vampire will most likely piss off Alaric Saltzman.
As for the actor portraying the resurrected character in “The Vampire Diaries” Season 6, Matt Davis revealed that Alaric Saltzman will be living outside of Mystic Falls and he will be going back to his passion for teaching. However, Davis further teased to TV Guide that Alaric was able to become a teacher once again at a local university after compelling his way to get the teaching position.
