With the mass death toll from last seasons finale, Mystic Falls needs some new residents. According to reports there will be 6 new members joining the cast for Season 6.
The Carrie Diaries” hunk Chris Wood has joined another “Diaries”-centric show, TVGuide.com reports. He will play the recurring role of Kai, a “charmingly unstable newcomer with the unsettling ability to seem normal as the situation demands.” Kai is described as the perfect mix of playful and obsessive.
“The Client List’s” Marco James landed the recurring role of Liam, TheWrap reports. Coming from a family of doctors, Liam is described as a “cocky yet good-natured” med student at Whitmore College. He will first appear in the Season 6 premiere. That sounds like someone is getting a new love interest. Any guesses as to which lady (or maybe Luke?) Liam will woo?
“Rectify” alum Jayson Warner Smith has been cast in a recurring role as well, TVLine reports. He will appear in at least two episodes of Season 6 and will play the owner of “a high-end hot rod shop.” Stefan does have a penchant for vintage vehicles … maybe his grief over losing his brother drives him (sorry, had to) to guilt-shop for new cars?
According to EW, “Hit the Floor” star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe will play Jo, “a tough and accomplished doctor at the university hospital. She demands excellence from her students and has learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession.” O’Keefe will first appear in the Season 6 premiere. Will Jo be Liam’s professor, or will one of our favorite vamps take a sudden interest in becoming a doctor?
Emily L. Chang, best known for the “Total Recall” remake along with “Days of Our Lives,” has booked the recurring role of Ivy on the CW show. She is a newcomer in Mystic Falls, and one who on the surface appears to be the sort of young woman that you would find in every small town: Wholesome and good to others. However, this is something a little wild underneath the surface here, and the interesting part of the equation here is when and where that wild side will surface.
Colin Ferguon (Eureka, Haven) has been cast in the role of Tripp, TVLine has confirmed, the head of a community militia who will “do anything to protect his town.” He’ll make his first appearance in The Vampire Diaries‘ sixth season premiere. It seems that Tripp will be in town to give Sheriff Forbes a run for her money.
The Vampire Diaries‘ sixth season premieres Oct. 2 at 8/7c on The CW
