According to Entertainment Weekly, Anders, who is credited for his roles on Alias, Heroes and 24, didn't beat around the bush when producers of The Vampire Diaries pitched the role of Elena and Jeremy's uncle to the 28-year-old actor. "When we started talking about this role, I immediately thought, 'What about Sark from Alias?' executive producer Julie Plec recalled. "We called his agent the next day and the day after that [the deal was] done."
