Gina Torres to Play a Witch on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Last week on The Vampire Diaries, Damon tried and failed to resurrect Katherine.

But you didn't think the heartbroken vampire would just give up, did you?

In casting news that also acts as a spoiler, Gina Torres has landed a role on The CW hit. She'll appear on the show's 10th episode as Bree, a witch with a connection to Damon. Look for him to try and get her to pick up where Emily/Bonnie failed last week: accessing Katherine's tomb.

Gina Torres

Torres is a busy actress these days.

She recurs on a pair of other shows: as Stan's wife on FlashForward; and as Vanessa's mother on Gossip Girl. Neither of those roles require witchcraft, however.

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.
