‘The Secret Circle’ alum heads to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ for season 4 role

Even though “The Secret Circle” may now be very much resting in peace, executive producer Kevin Williamson has made good on some of his claims to try and at least find a place for one of his actors on another one of his shows.

According to a report from TV Guide, Phoebe Tonkin has joined “The Vampire Diaries” for a role that could certainly have some major implications for at least one of the series regulars. She is set to play the role of Hayley, who is a woman who Tyler Lockwood has connections with from his past. It’s possible that there may be reason for fans of Caroline and Tyler to worry here, as you have to remember that Klaus is trapped inside of his body — and he may want to act out a little bit of sabotage so long as Candice Accola’s character is unable to find out that he is pulling the strings.

It’s unclear just how long Tonkin is going to stick around the show for, but she will be making her first appearance during the third episode of the season. She joins a flurry of new characters coming to Mystic Falls this season, including a new vampire hunter named Connor (described by many to be the big bad for the season) and a young lady returning to Mystic Falls with a past connection to Jeremy. What’s with all of these potential love interests turning up from the past? At least with Jeremy, it’s possible that they would have been too young to do anything before the character took off to boarding school.

Are there any other “Secret Circle” stars that you would like to see make the jump over to this series?┬áTo check out a brand-new video featuring “Vampire Diaries” stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, be sure to visit the link here.
