The Vampire Diaries doesn't return with new episodes until January 14.

But at least The CW hit is giving fans a lot of casting news to discuss in the meantime.

Last week, it was announced that Dexter star James Remar would appear on the show in the key role of Stefan and Damon's father, Giuseppe Salvatore.

Now, we can confirm - via the actress' own Twitter account - that Kelly Hu been cast in the possibly recurring role of Pearl.

Kelly Hu

Earlier this month, the network sent out a casting notice that described Pearl as:

Early 30's, Chinese, attractive. Seen in flashbacks, she is an apothecary for the town of Mystic Falls. Going door to door on sales visits she stops at the Salvatorre residence and meets Katherine. Unaware of what Katherine is, she tries to sell her vervain and quickly finds herself in danger.

Hu has guest-starred on a number of shows, including Army Wives, NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles.

they need to bring her back character pearl back. I thought Kelly Hu made an awesome vampire. She was in control and every move well thought out and was nice to see someone who could push Damon around physically. I think she got cheated and she brought a certain maturity to the vampires.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
