Janina Gavankar Cast on The Vampire Diaries Season 5

by at .

Janina Gavankar is on her way to Mystic Falls.

The TV Fanatic favorite (see this interview) has landed a potentially recurring role on The Vampire Diaries as Tessa, described by TV Line as an exotic, confident woman who arrives in Mystic Falls and who debuts on Episode 3, which we already know will be a flashback installment.

It's a very safe assumption that she will be portraying an ex-girlfriend of Stefan's. A vengeful ex, we should say.

The Vampire Diaries Season 5, meanwhile, premiere on Thursday, October 3.

    Lee - unfortunately I don't think Julie Plec is ever going to let the triangle die. She's under the delusion assumption that viewers like the love triangle.

    Steferine for the win, hoes! :')

    Nice cast. She is gorgeus. Loved her on TB and Arrow. Lets see how she will fit into the maniac/ex role.
