Jenny Boyd Describes Thomas Doherty's Vampire Character as 'Smolderhalder 2.0'

If you missed the news, Thomas Doherty is going to be playing a new vampire on Legacies in the new season and Jenny Boyd is letting us know all about him.

Speaking with TV Guide, the actress says that Lizzie is very much about Sebastian.

“Lizzie develops feelings for him very quickly,” she shared. “He’s kind of an Ian Somerhalder type — smoldery, old-school guy — so that’s definitely her jam… He’s a little bit ‘Smolderhalder’ 2.0, you know? He’s got that vibe, that really sexy, just impossibly beautiful human type of thing going on.”

Showrunner Julie Plec added that Thomas’ character is an “old, old, old-world vampire” who was “desiccated when he was 17 in maybe the 15th century and now wakes up in the 21st century and realizes that all the rules of being a vampire have changed and that he does not fit in into this very modern world.”

Don’t worry though, Lizzie is there to help him out.

“Lizzie obviously has strong opinions about everything, so we’ll see how that plays out in their relationship,” Jenny adds. “It’s kind of that line between lust and hate at times, maybe. You know this thing of, like, ‘Oh, I really like you, but I don’t like that I like you.’”

Legacies premieres on Thursday on The CW.
