Thanks to Alloy for the heads up! We have learned that Paul Telfer has been cast as a vampire hunter named Alexander that we will see in a flashback and has a special connection to Rebekah. Sounds intriguing…the info below about his character is quite spoilery, so beware.
The Scottish hunk, who hails from the same hometown as 300 star Gerard Butler, has snagged the role of Alexander who is described as “rugged, handsome and charismatic.” Honestly, after taking a look at Paul and his muscular arms, we couldn’t think of a more fitting man to tackle all the demands of slaying sharp-toothed, bloodthirsty creatures. Plus, it’s been reported that he has some mysterious connections to Rebekah which may very well be of the romantic variety. Yes, word on the street is that the hunter finds himself quite taken by the gorgeous Bex. (A blonde, vulnerable beauty and her brawny, long-haired warrior — oh be still our hearts!)
