Courtney Ford is coming to The Vampire Diaries.
The former Dexter star will recur on season two as Vanessa Monroe, a Duke University graduate student who assists Alaric and Damon with Isobel's research.
As you might expect, this character has a "conflict," Ford tells E! News.
"She studies all this wonderful mythology and folklore, but half of her is a complete skeptic. Half of her is a believer, and half of her is a skeptic, and she goes back and forth. It's a big conflict for her," said the actress.
Ford also made it pretty clear Vanessa would hook up with a male character on the show, but quickly added: "I want to tell you so much, but I can't. They'll kill me if I reveal too much!"
Honestly, this is The Vampire Diaries. They'll probably kill you anyway.
