The relatively unknown actor will recur later this spring as Markos, described in casting notes as "an imposing and charismatic presence with supernatural origins."

We hear the new villain will cause major problems for our favorite heroes and heroines and will be tied into the evolving Traveler storyline.

Where will Markos rank among all-time Vampire Diaries villains? We'll soon find out.

I still hope he is Nadia's father or at least his spirit is.

@ Spindae 2.0

He has to be related to her I'm wondering if he is Nadia's father too!! Either way I'm anxious to see what he brings to the show


I think if his role was major they would've casted someone more famous. Because he's a traveler his spirit might transfer into a relatively known actor or he'll die in the finale

@ Paul

I actually thought this with Klaus because I didn't really know the actor who played him - Joseph Morgan - however he turned out to be awesome as a villain! :-)
