When The Vampire Diaries returns in January, fans should expect to meet the family.
First, James Remar has been cast as Giuseppe Salvatore, the father of Damon and Stefan. He'll appear, via flashbacks, in at least one episode.
Now, The CW has sent out a casting notice for Lucy Bennet, Bonnie's cousin "from out of town." This is how the network describes the role:
Early 20's.. HOT African-American... A Virginia Tech college student that is wicked smart and is happy to let you know it. At first, she comes across as crass and in-your-face but look deeper and you'll see a wounded soul who's never really belonged. She is very guarded and mysterious and is not above using her looks to her advantage. Men beware.
The notice adds that this character may be recur as part of The Vampire Diaries cast. Got any suggestions on who should play Lucy? Share them with us now!
