‘Vampire Diaries’ Season 7: Complete List of New Cast Members
Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) may be out for Season 7 of The Vampire Diaries, but there are quite a few fresh faces coming to Mystic Falls — and we can’t wait to see what kind of chaos they bring. We’re keeping a running list of all the announced castings so keep this cheat sheet handy!
Elizabeth Blackmore as Valerie
Variety reports Legend of the Seeker alum Elizabeth Blackmore has been cast as Valerie, one of Lily Salvatore’s (Annie Wersching) heretic family members. In addition to her strong magic, Valerie also has a dark, moody attitude. She doesn’t fit into the Mystic Falls way of life and doesn’t agree with Lily’s peaceful ways, so she’ll take matters into her own hand and will “start a dangerous chain of events that will change Mystic Falls.” Valerie will first turn up in the Season 7 premiere.
Scarlett Byrne as Nora
According to Variety, Scarlett Byrne has been cast as Nora, one-half of the show’s first same-sex couple. Nora is part of Lily’s heretic family. Fed up with day-to-day life, she lives for chaos and destruction. She’s described as an adorable tomboy with a sly sense of humor and hella strong magic. Scarlett previously starred on Falling Skies. Nora will debut in the Season 7 premiere.
Jaiden Kaine as Beau
According to a spoiler-y Instagram post from Annie Wersching, Jaiden — who once appeared on 30 Rock back in 2011 — has been cast as a character named Beau. While we don’t know much about him, we assume he’s another of Lily’s heretic family members. One thing we do know: he’ll make his debut in the Season 7 premiere.
Tim Kang as Oscar
The Wrap reports Tim Kang, who you might recognize most from The Mentalist, has been cast as Oscar. Oscar is described as “a laid back stoner who’s been living the high life off the grid for months, hiding a surprising connecting to the Salvatores.” His “Zen lifestyle” will cease when, thanks to something supernatural, he becomes a “feral killer.” Oscar makes his first appearance in Season 7, Episode 3.
Todd Lasance as Julian
According to The Wrap, Todd Lasance has been cast as Julian, “a feared, storied immortal with a reputation for excelling in earthly pleasures.” He is either “pure charisma or pure creep” — dependant on whom you ask — and only fears one thing: “anonymity.” You’ll recognize Todd from Australian soap opera Far and Away or Spartacus: War of the Damned. Julian will first appear in Season 7, Episode 3.
Justice Leak as Malcolm
Justice Leak — who most recently starred on Powers — actually spoiled his casting himself by tweeting a photo of the Season 7 premiere script. We know when he’ll make his debut and that he’ll be playing Malcolm, whom we assume is another heretic.
Teressa Liane as Mary Louise
As Variety previously reported, Teressa Liane from Australian soap opera Neighbours will be playing Mary Louise. This character is yet another one of Lily’s heretic family and one-half of the show’s first same-sex couple with Nora, played by Scarlett Byrne. Mary Louise is described as having strong magical powers and not being shy of speaking up. Oh, and she’s a bit girlier than her girlfriend. We will meet Mary Louise in the Season 7 premiere.
The Vampire Diaries Season 7 returns Thursday, October 8, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
