Thanks to Deadline we have some scoop on a new casting. Michael Malarkey will be joining the cast as Enzo, an old friend from Damon’s past.
After casting the young actor as the male lead Prince Maxon in the second Selection pilot this past season, the network has tapped Malarkey for a major recurring role on veteran drama The Vampire Diaries. He will play Enzo, a charismatic but tortured figure from Damon’s past who arrives in Mystic Falls desperate to reconnect with his old friend. His first episode airs Dec. 5. American-born and raised Malarkey, repped by Silver Lining Entertainment and UK’s Hatton Mcewan Penford, studied at London’s LAMDA and has been working in the UK since.
