“The Vampire Diaries” has hired a new actress who looks very much like Nina Dobrev. But she would not play the role of Elena Gilbert in season 7.“The Vampire Dairies’ Season 7 would also introduce a time jump in the story.
It has been learnt that the second half of “The Vampire Diaries” is darker and shrouded by mysteries. According to TVLine, the executive producer of “TVD” Caroline Dries has lately disclosed that the “The Vampire Diaries” Season 7 would run on a totally different theme. The supernatural romance drama would be like something new this time.
“We’ll be dealing with the fallout from the winter finale for a while, both emotionally and plot-wise, Dries said.
The TV series would have a time jump as Candice King’s Caroline would have kids. Dries divulged that even if the babies are conceived using sorcery or spell-working, the babies would grow inside their mother’s womb for 9 months.
“The Vampire Diaries” Season 7 would also have a barbaric vampire hunter by the name, Rayna, reports ChristianToday. This lady vampire would be seen running after Paul Wesley’s Stefan as the story progresses. It has been learnt that the character of this lady vampire would be played by “NCIS” alum, Leslie-Anne Huff.
“TVD” fans who have missed Nina Dobrev or her character, Elena Gilbert would be happy to know about Huff. Many have been talking about Huff’s striking resemblance to Dobrev. If you have been wondering that has she been finalized to join the cast of “The Vampire Diaries” Season 7 because of her physical resemblance to Dobrev, then this is what Dries has to say.
Dries stated that they looked at several actors. She said, “I was like, ‘I think she looks exactly like Nina.’ I was convinced otherwise.”
Dries further added that it’s just a coincidence. She explained that she has not even met Huff in person. She continued to tell that many have told her that in person she does not really resemble Dobrev. She is a very good actress and is the right person for the role.
“The Vampire Diaries” Season 7 would have a different timeslot in 2016 on The CW. The midseason episodes would air on Fridays from Jan. 29, 2016.
