Lauren Cohan, prepare to be hated by a large majority of Vampire Diaries viewers.

Much to the chagrin of Delena lovers everywhere, the actress has been cast in the key new role of Rose, a 500-year old vampire who comes to Mystic Falls and gets close to Damon.

The CW describes this character as a "tough girl" with a major edge, one with little humanity remaining after centuries as a blood sucker.

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

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
