The Vampire Diaries premieres October 2nd, on the CW, and they will be welcoming a couple of new and possibly unwanted faces to Mystic Falls. Eureka alum, Colin Ferguson, has been tapped to play a significant role in season 6.
Ferguson's character, Tripp, is described as handsome, strong and disciplined. He is the head of a community militia and surrogate father to his young trainees, who will do anything to protect his town. Tripp is also someone who will give Sheriff Forbes ~ Marguerite MacIntyre a run for her money, spoiled executive producer Julie Plec.
Gabrielle Walsh will also be making her way to Mystic Falls, by way of the role of Sarah. We will see Sarah in the season 6 premiere, where she'll charm us with her “spunk, street smarts and a shady agenda.” Walsh’s other credits include co-starring in Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and appearing as herself in a 2014 episode of the syndicated series Made in Hollywood.
