Bonnie Bennett (Katerina Graham) is a beautiful young African-American student at Mystic Falls High School, in the "The Vampire Diaries". Bonnie is a fun-loving, popular student, and best friends with Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev). She comes from a long line of witches in her family, which has meant that as the episodes progress, Bonnie finds she has more and more supernatural powers, including clairvoyance and telekinesis.
Bonnie is also friends with Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola), although they are not as close as Bonnie is with Elena, and Bonnie often finds herself playing the go-between for Caroline and Elena. Bonnie's grandmother, Sheila Bennett (Jasmine Guy), played a big part in Bonnie's life, showing her how to develop and control her supernatural powers. 'Grams', as Bonnie called her, died later in Season One, which affected Bonnie considerably.
Bonnie's powers begin as something of a joke to her, but as time went on, she found herself predicting the death of Mr. Tanner (Benjamin Ayres), and being able to set fires using the power of her mind, which she put to use on people she had a problem with. When another cheerleader annoyed her, Bonnie set her car on fire. After this, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) realized Bonnie started the fire and that she has telekinetic powers.
Bonnie: So where is he?
Elena: I dont know, you tell me. You're the psychic one, remember?
Bonnie: Oh, right I forgot. Gimme a sec, Grams says I need to concentrate.
Bonnie: Today I'm obsessed with numbers. I keep seeing 8,14 and 22, how weird is that?
Elena: Maybe we should play the lottery
