Life Unexpected heartthrob Shaun Sipos, has been tapped to play a recurring role in season 5 of The Vampire Diaries. Sipos' character Aaron, comes to college running from his tortured past and finds an immediate bond with Elena. They've both experienced and survived dark family tragedies, so depending on the chemistry between the two, we hear that it's possible Aaron will be around longer than just a few episodes,
Even though Executive Producer Julie Plec has already revealed that the writers plan to keep Delena together and happy for awhile, the addition of Aaron could throw a wrench in Damon and Elena's long distance happiness.
"We'll see how well we do with that," she said.
EW has spoiled that Australian thespian, Rick Cosnett, has been cast in the role of Dr. Wes Maxfield. Dr. Maxfield is described as a brilliant Biology professor at Whitmore College. He immediately strike discord with Caroline and Elena. The professor is 'hiding a dark and dangerous past' and 'makes fast enemies' with our vampy college freshman.
The Vampire Diaries returns to the CW on Thursday, October 10th!!
