Robert Ri’chard (played Mason on Veronica Mars) is taking on the potentially recurring role of Jamie when the hit show returns in January.
Viewers will meet Jamie in episode 12, when Bonnie and Elena (Nina Dobrev) go on a little road trip. Described as handsome (obviously) and a little rough around the edges, Bonnie immediately takes an interest in Jamie. Get it, gurl!
Also set to appear in episode 12? Bonnie’s mother Abby Bennett, who will be played by Girlfriends star Persia White (EW first reported the casting). Coincidence? We think not! We’re hearing Jamie definitely has a connection with Abby…just not one of the love variety. Something they share in common? They’re both hot and troubled! You see, Abby is burdened by the secrets of her past that led her to leave her daughter.
