Gina Torres to Play a Witch on The Vampire Diaries
Last week on The Vampire Diaries, Damon tried and failed to resurrect Katherine.
But you didn't think the heartbroken vampire would just give up, did you?
In casting news that also acts as a spoiler, Gina Torres has landed a role on The CW hit. She'll appear on the show's 10th episode as Bree, a witch with a connection to Damon. Look for him to try and get her to pick up where Emily/Bonnie failed last week: accessing Katherine's tomb.
Torres is a busy actress these days.
She recurs on a pair of other shows: as Stan's wife on FlashForward; and as Vanessa's mother on Gossip Girl. Neither of those roles require witchcraft, however.
