Michael Malarkey to Blast from Damon's Past on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Michael Malarkey is on his way to Mystic Falls.

The actor will come on board multiple episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 5 as Enzo, described by Deadline insiders as a "charismatic but tortured" figure from Damon Salvatore's past.

It's unclear what brings Enzo to town, but he'll look to reconnect with his former friend and debut on December 5.

Malarkey has a history with The CW: he was cast as the male lead in The Selection pilot, a drama that did not get picked up this past season by the network.

But the young actor clearly made an impression.

And he won't be the only person to blast from a Salvatore brother's past this fall: Janina Gavankar has been cast as Stefan's ex and will make her first appearance on The Vampire Diaries next week.

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 are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
