Zoie Palmer participated in a Reddit AMA yesterday, answering questions from fans, including this one: “Would you play another LGBT+ character if given the opportunity?”

Perhaps. I don’t take a roll or turn down a roll because of their sexuality. A characters sexual preference has such a little effect on how it would be played. Its everything else about them that determines who they are, how they would respond to a situation… the last way for me to get into a character would be through their sexual orientation.

Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec says she didn’t make Kat Graham‘s character Bonnie bisexual because it’d be too much like Buffy.

“In theory, we were all for it, and it’s entirely possible it could happen someday. At the time, we were still so close to Buffy. So if we also made our witch gay … frankly, I didn’t feel like reading all the tweets calling me a hack artist. But Kat really believes in it as a potential road for her character, and we support it 100 percent, so if it ever feels right for the character, we’re all for it.”

I think we can all handle another queer witch.
