The ATX Television Festival is almost here and we’re continuing to help you get to know the peeps involved.

This time, I give you Arielle Kebbel.

Kebbel is on the ATX Fest advisory board and will take part in screenings and panels of The Vampire Diaries, Audrey and Life Unexpected. She has starred in a myriad of TV and film projects including 90210, Think Like a Man, John Tucker Must Die and Gilmore Girls.

The ATX Festival is a celebration of the small screen. It’ll have the look and feel of a film festival, but instead of movies, it features “classic shows, never aired pilots, cancelled too soon series, cult favorites, current hits and premieres of new series.” And, BTW, it’s not too late to get tickets!
