by at . Comments

It sounds like Katherine has company in the quasi after-life.

In February (spoiler alert!), Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec has confirmed that viewers will learn a lot more about who is buried along with Elena's doppelgänger underneath the Mystic Falls forest.

"We have a union soldier down there named Harper who we’ll be seeing soon," Plec told TV Guide Magazine.

This character will be played by Sterling Sulieman, a veteran of All My Children who will also star as CTU Agent Tac on this season’s 24. He debuts on February 11.

Earlier this week, Sulieman alerted Twitter followers to the role:

"Not going to Atlanta till Monday! but I got fitted for my Vampire Eyes. Also got to try on the black ones from true blood. Creepy."

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.

Hey, Blondie. Today isn't the worst day of your life. Today and tomorrow, it's a cakewalk. There'll be people around you day in and day out like they're afraid to leave you alone. The worst day? That's next week when there's nothing but quiet. Just a heads up.
