New Faces for ‘TVD’ and ‘The Originals’

the-vampire-diaries-season-6There will be a lot of new faces on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals when the two supernatural shows return in the fall.

There are two more heretics joining the female heretics, Valerie, Nora and Mary Louise.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Justice Leak (Powers) will play Malcolm, who doesn’t like to be told no. He’s the eldest of the heretics and is described as the golden child. EW said: “But when he’s alone, he has the sneering, aloof air of somebody who’s been alive a very long time—with no fear of death.” Justice will make his debut on TVD in the season seven premiere.

Jaiden Kaine (Zoo) will play what sounds to be a very interesting character, Beau. He’s described as a “scary, solemn and dangerous man,” according to EW. His vocal cords were slashed and he can’t speak, but makes up for it by being very powerful. He’s also very loyal to his heretic family. Jaiden will also make his debut in the season premiere.

TVD is getting more new characters besides the heretics. Tim Kang (The Mentalist) will play Oscar, who has a surprising connection to the Salvatores, EW reported. He’s been living a Zen lifestyle off the grid for months. All of this ends when a “supernatural intervention turns him into a feral killer.”

Todd Lasance will join the cast to play Julian, a feared and legendary immoral. It sounds like Damon may have some competition next season. Julian has a “reputation for excelling in earthly pleasures.”

Depending on who you ask, he’s a creep or full of charisma. He’s always on the run leaving chaos behind him and attracts a lot of dangerous followers. He only fears being forgotten, which is unlikely.

Todd and Tim will make their debuts in episode three.

The Originals is also adding three new faces for season three.

Lawrence Kao (The Walking Dead) will play a handsome and stubborn witch, Van. He’s always stayed out of the coven’s politics, but after tragedy strikes he finds himself sucked into the war. Lawrence will first appear in episode two.

Oliver Ackland (Satisfaction) will play a vampire who has a complicated history with the Originals. Tristan was born into wealth and power, which has inflated his ego. EW said: “With those he loves, he can be equal parts warm and caring, obsessive and co-dependent. But with his enemies, he is cruel and completely merciless.”

Oliver will also appear in episode two.

The Originals is also getting another female character: “a beautiful and enigmatic vampire.” Rebecca Breeds (Pretty Little Liars) will play Aurora. She likes to draw men to her, but she can also kill those same men without even thinking about it. Rebecca will make her debut in the season premiere.

Which new character are you most looking forward to meeting?

TVD  and The Originals return back to back on Thursday, October 8, 8/7c  on the CW.
