Another new Vampire Diaries character has been cast.

With Olga Fonda on board as Nadia, a mysterious Russian with a secret agenda, sources now confirm to TV Guide that Kendrick Sampson (Greek) will take on the key Season 5 role of Jesse.

As previously reported, this Whitemore University upperclassman will take an interest in Caroline, though he will also possess a particular disdain for vampires in general. For a very personal reason.

Look for plenty more to be revealed about The Vampire Diaries Season 5 next weekend at Comic-Con... and don't forget to submit questions now for TV Fanatic. We'll be on the red carpet Saturday with all the stars!

No offense, but I'm not liking this whole situation. I hate when TVD writers introduce these characters that are recurring, and bring no purpose to the show whatsoever. This guy is being brought in because they got rid of Klaus, and they need a storyline for Caroline. End of story. They need to keep Caroline single, and show her in college, bff's with Elena, friends with Stefan, etc! Not another romance. Ugh..

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

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.
