Sebastian Roch Will Guest Star on “The Vampire Diaries”
Watch out! There will be a vampire hunter heading to Mystic Falls…
Former “General Hospital” star, Sebastian Roch has been cast on “The Vampire Diaries” as a mysterious man who appears to be hunting vampires, specifically Klaus (Joseph Morgan).
The yet-to-be-named recurring character was originally described in casting breakdowns as “rugged, handsome, charming and dangerous.”
As the new character explained by executive producer Julie Plec, “For some reason, Klaus, who shouldn’t be afraid of anybody, seems to be concerned about this person.”
Plec added, “He’s a classically-trained theater actor, he is mysterious, he has an element of danger to him.”
“We liked the idea of bringing an adult into our world that wasn’t one of our founding families. He’s just got a quality that is really exciting,” she continued.
It is unknown when exactly Roch will make his debut, but the role was originally being cast for the third episode of Season 3.
Roch recurred on “Fringe” and “Supernatural” last season, and most recently guest-starred on “Criminal Minds.”
The new season of “The Vampire Diaries” premieres on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 8/7c on the CW.
Welcome aboard, Sebastian!
