When Torrey DeVitto landed a recurring role as another medical professional on “The Vampire Diaries” in 2011, she was married to one of the show’s leads, Paul Wesley. However, her character, Dr. Meredith Fell, fell for a vampire who was not played by her husband: Matt Davis’ Alaric. DeVitto did not have any scenes with Wesley early on, and she initially said she preferred their shooting schedule that way. But, DeVitto later changed her tune when Wesley’s character, Stefan, required Fell’s aid. “I had such a great time working with him, and it was so amazing, I totally take back everything I said. We just have such a mutual respect for each other, and a similar work ethic,” she told Zap2it in February 2013.
But Fell’s romance with Alaric didn’t last, and neither did DeVitto’s marriage. Five months after she gushed about working with Wesley, People reported that the couple was getting a divorce. Luckily, DeVitto didn’t need to keep working with her ex to earn a paycheck. She’d just signed on to appear on “Army Wives,” and she was really excited about her new role. “I absolutely love this character! She is the definition of kick a** and so multifaceted,” DeVitto told Flair. “She is the most realistic character I have ever played.”
DeVitto also had a recurring role on “Pretty Little Liars” that wasn’t quite as realistic. “That show had so many twists and turns,” the actor told Glitter.
