'Nikita' Casts 'Vampire Diaries' Hunk Dillon Casey For Recurring Role

Canadian actor Dillon Casey has joined The CW’s Nikita in the recurring role of Sean Pierce, a potential love interest for star Maggie Q.

Casey’s character is an Army Special Ops officer assigned to retrieve Division’s coveted black box from Nikita. In addition to tracking Nikita, Sean’s been ordered to keep an eye on the recently promoted Amanda, who now oversees Division. As he learns more about the complicated history of Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) he grows weary about her relationship with Nikita.

The 27-year old hunk is set to appear in a much buzzed about upcoming episode of Starz’s Torchwood: Miracle Day, as Brad, a love interest for John Barrowman’s Capt. Jack Harkness. Casey has a very racy love scene with Barrowman. His prior credits include Vampire Diaries, Being Erica, and SOAPnet’s hockey soap MVP.

Nikita will begin its second season on Friday, September 23 at 8PM.
