Beware, Mystic Falls.
A trio of new blood suckers are on the way.
Sources have confirmed that Scarlett Byrne (Falling Skies) and Teressa Liane (Neighbours) will come on board The Vampire Diaries Season 7 as Heretics Nora and Mary Louise, the show’s first-ver same-sex couple.
These women have been in a mostly secret relationship for a century and are fiercely protective of one another.
Then there’s Elizabeth Blackmore. The former Legend of the Seeker will portray Valerie, a violent Heretic with many past struggles who is definitely NOT about peace.
The Vampire Diaries Season 7 will premiere on Thursday, October 8 and include somewhat of a time jump.
