Vampire Diaries Casting: The Heretics Have Been Cast!


Thanks to THR, we have some casting scoop! As anticipated, we will be meeting Lily’s family this coming season, The Heretics. Of which, 3 nasty, nasty girls have been teased by the producers during Comic Con. Well yesterday, THR made the casting announcements.

Fresh off the loss of Elena (Nina Dobrev), The Vampire Diaries is adding to its female cast.

Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker), Scarlett Byrne(Falling Skies), and Teressa Liane (Neighbours) have signed on to recur on the long-running CW series, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. All three will first appear in The Vampire Diaries’ seventh season opener.

Blackmore has been tapped to play Valerie, one of Lily’s (Annie Wersching) heretics with “powerful magic and a dark and moody attitude.” She doesn’t find life in Mystic Falls all the great, and isn’t OK with the rules Lily has laid down for the family. And when Valerie goes down her own path, she starts a “dangerous chain of events that will change the face of Mystic Falls.”
It has also been brought to our attention of another casting. AMC Turn‘s Justice Leak has also been cast as one of the heretics, named Malcolm. The actor posted on his Twitter the following tweet. We are looking forward to seeing them all in action!
