    She will play WHO?!… Kelly Donovan?!… Hahahaha…!

    That’s so funny because the “KELLY” is from => KELLY Rowan. The real name of the one who played the Kirsten Cohen character (her best friend on the O.C show) ….and “Donovan” => Tate Donovan is also the real name of the man who played Jimmy Cooper (her husband in the same show) KELLY Rowan + Tate DONOVAN = KELLY DONOVAN => Melinda Clarke new characters on the “Vampire Diaries” tv show! LOL!
