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.

'Legacies' Cast Talks What's Coming in Season Two of the Show at Comic-Con 2019

'Legacies' Cast Talks What's Coming in Season Two of the Show at Comic-Con 2019

The ladies of Legacies look so fierce in this pic from their signing event during 2019 Comic-Con over the weekend in San Diego, Calif.

Danielle Rose Russell, Jenny Boyd, and Kaylee Bryant joined co-stars Matt Davis, Aria Shahghasemi, Quincy Fouse and Peyton Alex Smith for the meet and greet with their fans after a panel moderated by Candice King.

In an interview with TVLine, Jenny, Danielle and Kaylee all opened up about what’s ahead for their characters in season two.

For Lizzie and Josie, Kaylee and Jenny opened up about the merge.

“I really don’t think Josie’s in a place where she would fight back,” Kaylee says. “She’d let her win.” Jenny, though, is convinced that it would be a close battle.

Danielle also chatted about a world without Hope: “It’s definitely a change of pace…it gives these guys a little bit of freedom to explore different situations and dynamics now, because it’s justified. Last year, certain things wouldn’t have been justified, but now we get to experiment a little bit — until Hope is remembered and all hell breaks loose.”

Thomas Doherty Is Coming To 'Legacies' As a Possible Love Interest For Lizzie

Thomas Doherty is headed to the world of the supernatural on Legacies!

Revealed over the weekend during 2019 Comic-Con, the 24-year-old actor, who we all know as Harry Hook from the Descendants franchise, will be appearing on the upcoming second season of the CW series.

TVLine reports that Thomas character, who has yet to be named, is “a very old vampire with old ideas about the way things work — but Lizzie might be into that.”

Lizzie, played by Jenny Boyd, had two potential love interests in season one – vampire Rafael, and werewolf MG.

Thomas isn’t the first Descendants star that was on Legacies either – Jedidah Goodacre, aka Chad Charming, reprised his The Originals role as Roman in an episode last season.

Legacies returns in October on The CW.
