Kendrik Sampson and Olga Fonda have been cast in recurring roles on CW’s hit drama.
Olga Fonda (How I Met Your Mother, Nikita) has been cast as Nadia, “a mysterious European beauty who follows Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Matt (Zach Roerig) back to Mystic Falls.” Sounds like their summer trip around the world might have been a little interesting. What kind of trouble do you think Nadia will be causing?
Meanwhile, Sampson will play Jesse, a student at Whitmore College. He’ll meet Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) during their first day at college, undoubtedly getting their freshman year off to an interesting start. Jesse will catch Caroline’s attention, but how will he feel about the paranormal aspect of her life?
The casting news was first reported by TV Guide. Both characters will make their debut during the season premiere when The Vampire Diaries returns to the CW on Thursday, October 10th at 8 pm EST.
