Elizabeth will play Valerie, “one of Lily’s (Annie Wersching) heretics with ‘powerful magic and a dark and moody attitude.’ She doesn’t find life in Mystic Falls all that great, and isn’t OK with the rules Lily has laid down for the family. And when Valerie goes down her own path, she starts a ‘dangerous chain of events that will change the face of Mystic Falls.’
Meanwhile, Scarlett and Teresa will portray the heretics couple Nora and Mary Louis. The former is described as having a “sly sense of humor,” while the latter has a “strong point of view which she isn’t afraid to express.”
Mark your calendars – The Vampire Diaries returns on Thursday, October 8 @ 8PM on The CW!
Ian Sommerhalder shows off his smoldering grin while arriving for an appearance on Extra at Universal Studios on Thursday (July 9) in Universal City, Calif.
The 36-year-old Vampire Diaries star recently talked about how the show will move forward without Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev).
“The way it was done was great. The way it was done was actually incredible, because it allows people to know that she’s still there…she’s not dead,” Iansaid. “In seventy years or however long Bonnie lives, Elena will resurface at some point, although we’ll be very old when that happens.”
Ian added, “We’re actually very excited about telling this story. Mystic Falls without Elena Gilbert is going to be very different. We want to go back to that Season 1 and Season 2 of storytelling… I think that the last scene in the last episode that you see is truly a depiction of what this next season’s going to be.”

“I feel like six seasons is a nice, long slow-burn, so I’m excited to see these characters together,” Candice shared. “Usually, it’s so immediate, especially on our series … but in real life, it’s the person you can be yourself in front of in the most dorky way.”
She added, “Both of these characters have seen the worst in each other and they still like each other and I think that’s really cool and that’s really special.”
The Vampire Diaries is back on The CW on Thursday, October 8th @ 8PM ET/PT.
Get ready for some new bloodsuckers in Mystic Falls!
According to TVLine.com, The Vampire Diaries will introduce three new characters for the upcoming seventh season, which premieres on Thursday, October 8 @ 8/7c on The CW.
The show will feature its first same-sex couple! Their names are Nora and Mary Louise, and they are described as “a dangerous duo of down-low lovers with murderous tendencies.”
The description continues, “The vampires, both turned in their mid-20s, have kept their relationship a secret for more than a century, and although their connection is clear to those able to infiltrate their inner circle, Mary Louise’s constant doting can sometimes feel a bit smothery for fiery Nora’s liking. Still, anyone foolish enough to cross either of them will feel both their wraths.”
The third new character is named Valerie, who is “another 20-something vampire who relies on her dry sense of humor to counter a life of pain and dismissal. She’ll encounter someone who helps her remember the happier, free spirit she once was — and she’ll do whatever it takes to keep him in her life.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK about these new roles? Any casting suggestions?
