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! :-)

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 know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
