More Elder witches are on their way to Chance Harbor. Hunter alum Stepfanie Kramer has joined the cast of The Secret Circle as Charles Meade's mother, Kate. The strong and complicated Kate Meade will first appear in episode 10.
She's described as the kind of woman who can warm you with a smile but freeze you with a single glare, which is unfortunate for Charles, who will get caught in the middle of Dawn~Natasha Henstridge and Kate's hatred for one another.
