I have a casting scoop from Eonline to pass along to the vast “Vampire Diaries” fandom. Stephen Amell has joined the cast and will play an old friend of Mason’s. More hotness in Mystic Falls, what’s a girl to do…
Insiders confirm to us that a young actor named Stephen Amell has joined the cast of CW’s The Vampire Diaries as a character with a connection to Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) gorgeous uncle. So who is this new kid, exactly, and what role does he play in Mystic Falls’ ongoing werewolf-vampire shenanigans? Here’s what we can reveal:
Producers tell us this about Amell’s character: “Stephen plays Brady—an old friend of Mason Lockwood who blows into town with a vengeance. [He's a] loyal friend or your worst enemy depending on who you are. Did we mention he was hot?” (We believe you about the hotness—good looks and the werewolf gene are quite obviously linked!)
Look for Brady to appear in two episodes, one of which is filming right now.
