Move over, Bonnie Bennett, and make room for two new witches on The Vampire Diaries.

According to E! News, The CW is looking for a pair of actresses to come on board the April 25 installment of this drama, which, of course, will serve as the backdoor pilot for the wildly anticipated Vampire Diaries spinoff.

The first, Sophie, is described as a "strong leader" who is plotting some kind of revolution because her magic has been quelled.

The second, Davina, has a few demons in her closet, but has mostly lived a life sheltered by her caregivers.

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.
