Lauren Cohan, prepare to be hated by a large majority of Vampire Diaries viewers.

Much to the chagrin of Delena lovers everywhere, the actress has been cast in the key new role of Rose, a 500-year old vampire who comes to Mystic Falls and gets close to Damon.

The CW describes this character as a "tough girl" with a major edge, one with little humanity remaining after centuries as a blood sucker.
