Do you want some more of the latest “Vampire Diaries” casting news? Let’s just say that in this particular situation, we are talking about some people that could spell a rather spectacular return of one of our primary villains.
According to a report from TV Guide (via SpoilerTV), the CW series has tapped a pair of actors to be new members of Klaus’ hybrid army. Yes, he has still not give up on that yet. The two actors behind the roles are Blake Hood (“90210” and “The Young and the Restless”) as well as Alyssa Diaz (“The Nine Lives of Chloe King”), and they will first start appearing beginning in episode five.
So what are the larger ramifications of this casting news? In some ways, it suggests that by this time, Klaus may have finally found his way back to his own body (and the one played by Joseph Morgan) after spending at least a decent amount of time in the body of one Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino), who has already been through the process of being sire-bonded to Klaus once on the show already. We know Klaus will at least be trapped during the season premiere and possibly a while longer, mostly because it would be absolutely stunning to think that he could end up somehow being freed somehow within an hour. (Plus, this would deprive him of the opportunity to really mess with the Caroline / Tyler relationship for his own personal gain.)
What do you think about this casting, and are you all right with revisiting the whole hybrid army well again? We want to hear some of your thoughts with a comment below! If you have yet to see the new promo for the October 11 season premiere, you can do so by heading over to the link here.
