On The Vampire Diaries TV series, Marguerite MacIntyre plays Mystic Falls’ go-getter sheriff and Caroline Forbes’ mom Liz. She’s also close pals with sassy Damon Salvatore, and the two often team up to solve a supernatural predicament or two — sort of like a more dramatic, better-looking pair-up of Starsky and Hutch. Well it just so happens that, in a fun twist of events, Candice Accola isn’t the only May baby on the cast — Marguerite also celebrates her birthday on May 11th, just two days before her on-screen daughter’s. Continue the TVD birthday festivities with five reasons why Marguerite rocks as Sheriff Forbes!
Sheriff Forbes proved how awesome she actually was on episode 2.22, when she accepted Caroline for being a vampire.

Lucky Liz! She's always getting to hang out with Damon. (True, they hit up crime scenes most of the time but at least she's got a great looking guy by her side to counterbalance all the stabbing and blood!)
When Matt needed to trust someone with a dark secret (that Caroline was a vampire), he went straight to Liz and she proved to be a great support system for him during this confusing time.

Mason Lockwood + Liz Forbes = Major vampire damage. Although we don't like to think of anyone hurting the Salvatores, Liz was so stealth with the way she went about confirming that Stefan and Damon were indeed vampires. Plus, teaming up with a sizzling werewolf? Go, Liz!
Liz's love for Caroline shone through during the second season decade dance, where she set aside her hate of vamps to admire her daughter's style and grace.
