Todd Williams to Go Hunting on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Todd Williams is on his way to Mystic Falls - and this may mean trouble for our favorite blood suckers.

The actor has been cast on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 as Connor, a vampire hunter who will debut on the October 18 installment of this CW drama and who is described in network notes as a "highly trained killing machine."

Williams has experience playing men on the right side of the law, having portrayed a detective on In Plain Sight and a police officer on The Chicago Code.

No word yet on exactly how he'll interact with Damon, Stefan and company. But don't expect his hunter to get along as well with his supposed prey as the show's previous hunter. (RIP, Alaric. We miss you, buddy.)

In a Season 4 press release, The CW referred to a "new villain" intent on "destroying" the bond Elena and her friends have with their hometown. It's safe to assume this outline was referring to Williams' Connor.

He is 43 years old, he can't be bonnie's love interest. I think he is bonnie's father, I'm sure salvatores will force Bonnie to kill her own father. He will be the fandom's new darthboard (He is black and doesn't like vampires)


he's so gonna get owned in 2 episodes


First I cant stand all these racist comments, Second this dude will probele be eaten alive by Caroline like she did to that other black guy in season two.


Sweet! I can't wait until October! Too long of a hiatus


Connor needs to go back where he came from


I am glad that TVD attempts diversity where other shows do not. I m hoping that the character doesnt go soft or die after three episodes. No one on this show deemed as a Barry are cut throat enough. I m interested in how Kat and Elena are going to interact and is the bloodline now cut off.


So, using TVD logic, since he's black, he MUST be a witch, and he MUST die within a few episodes of the premiere.


You don't have a life, do you? It's annoying trying to read something about TVD and having your comments all over this site. If you don't like this show why bother?


@BoredNow: LOL colored?

So By the pure fact taht he is not caucasian and that TVD has a tendency of being very racist in its deaths, how many minutes do we expect him to live before getting dead like most of colored cast does in this show?...

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.
