by at . Comments

Cassidy Freeman isn't just coming to The Vampire Diaries - she may be sticking around for awhile!

The former Smallville star has landed a potentially recurring role on The CW smash as Sage, a woman who will be seen on episode 16 via flashback.

Cassidy Freeman as Tess Mercer

According to TV Line, we'll first see the character - described as “sexy and fearless, with a devilish smile" - in 1912. Look for her to have a connection to both the Salvatores and the Originals.

That's all we know for now, but we do have an update on Samantha Gilbert: this family member will NOT be seen in present day. She'll also appear in one of the show's famous looks back. The role has not yet been cast.

As fan of tv series and book series, I recall character, Sage, in book series is a hot vampire, with long bronze hair, with sculpted muscles on a "leonine frame," from the Dark Dimension and close friend of Damon. Sage also had a 200 lb black dog, named Saber and trained falcon, named Talon. SAge also never left the Dark Dimension, so it'll be interesting to see how tv series portrays the character.

If memory serves me, Sage was left gender ambiguous to be either a boy or a girl. Although, given Sage fixation of Damon, I assumed she was a girl vampire. When she was helping Damon, Bonnie, and Elena through the dark dimension she assumed that she was one of the ancient ones (i.e. an original). Therefore, if I have a point I wonder if Cassidy Freeman is suited to play Sage who is mellowed and Pepi. I suppose I will just have to wait and watch...


Her eyes have no pupils, it scares me.


This has another girl that loved Stefan all over it but maybe for once someone who actually fell hard for Damon.

Predictions: 1) something will get retconed in the show.
2) She dated steffie.


Does that mean she's a vampire since she's been around since 1912.She also has a connection with the salvatores and the originals,wow that's amazing,am sure they will say she dated stefan back then.

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 know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
