In news first broken by Zap2It, Scottish actor Paul Telfer has been cast as Alexander, a vampire hunter from the 1100s who we'll meet via flashback and who will help shed new light on Claire Holt's Rebekah.

In another flashback, meanwhile, we'll watch Stefan navigate his way through World War II.

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premieres on Thursday, October 11. We are just a tad bit excited for it.

I see that another hunter is approaching and who knows if he's more skilled or badder than the other. I can't wait for season 4 coming next week. XD =D

Hey its the the show where vikings lived in california around thousands of years in the past, having invented hair gel and shakespearean terms like "having fun".
LMAO :-D But hey, it's so great to have ANOTHER "ancient Hunter". I mean - the storyline with the LAST "ancient Hunter" did work soooooo nice. I know they say history repeats itself, just didn't know it's so damn fast with it.

let me guess: he'll have a british accents because apparently, every fucking body in history has a british accent
Hey its the the show where vikings lived in california around thousands of years in the past, having invented hair gel and shakespearean terms like "having fun". Anything is possible in this show - i would not put it past this show and its immersion-breaking anarchronistic narrative, from making entirety of europe british no reason at all. Soon you will find out that even the native werewolves of california from viking times were also somehow british. They did such great flashbacks in Season One....but since S2 flashbacks just became completely ridiculous, pointless and boring way to air filler episodes with nothing interesting nor good in them.

on the stefan spoiler: i agree, it would've been better if it was damon who did the flashback but it still sounds good

I don't care about what this guy has to do with Rebekah. His probably going to be another useless, unnessasary guest star. And Rebekah should have been killed or removed a long time ago anyways, not be entertained by the masses and writers like Klaus and gain more screentime then anyone else who isn't Damon, Elena and Stefan.
And why didn't they just hire Taylor Lautner himself instead of this look alike *sarcasm*
This show is serious testing my mentality as an adult.

And yes, the guy looks like Jacob...

Can't believe I am saying this but wouldn't it be nice if the show could have more Damon flashbacks, I mean actually good and interesting ones. Not that I don't like those which involve Stefan, but I just feel like the show barely does anything good on Damon anymore. Cos last season's "1912" episode, which was supposed to give us "some good insight on Damon's past" turned out to be a half-boring anf half-dull episode about Damon still carrying the torch for Katherine and learning how to rape women from the worst guest star ever - Sage.
