The Vampire Diaries: Casting for a Professor

at . Comments

We already know that a new hunter is coming to town on The Vampire Diaries Season 4, as Todd Williams has been cast in a role Julie Plec described to me at Comic-Con as far scarier than anything Mystic Falls residents are prepared for.

But this character won't be the only new player to make his presence felt in the fall.

According to Zap2It, the series is also seeking an actor to come on board as Professor Shane, a faculty member at the local university who specializes in the supernatural. Look for this teacher to get involved with Bonnie in some way.

The Vampire Diaries returns on October 11 and we'll be posting exclusive TV Fanatic interviews with Ian Somerhalder and Julie Plec later this 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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
