Vampire Diaries’ Sara Canning to Play Dean’s Love Interest on ‘Supernatural’

Dean is about to get back on the one-night-stand horse. As I teased a couple weeks ago, the show was casting for an actress to partake in a “sizzling one-night stand” with one of the boys. Now we know who the lucky guy is and who will be playing the lucky lady.

Sara Canning, who played Aunt Jenna on The Vampire Diaries, will be getting it on with Dean. She’ll portray Lydia, described by Sera Gamble to TVLine as “wry, independent, and as fun-loving as Dean.” Gamble added that she and Dean “have a memorable evening that takes an unexpected turn.” The casting call mentioned that Lydia is part of a cult, which could explain the strange detour.

Canning will appear in the 13th episode, slated to air in late January.

    Cool. I always thought Jenna got a screwed on her Vamp Diaries role. They should have brought her into the fold and kept her with Alaric.
