What do Alaric Saltzman, Buffy Sunmers, Blade, and Abraham Lincoln (supposedly) all have in common? They’re badass vampire slayers who don’t tolerate any blood-sucking shenanigans, that’s what! Without a doubt, it’s a tough crew to run with but as long as you’re up for a little beheading action and know how to whittle and jab a stake into the heart of a fanger, then you’re golden. And now joining the ranks of prestigious demon hunters is Todd Williams, who’ll be taking on the role of Mystic Falls newcomer Connor!
As we revealed earlier this summer, Connor is described as “a mysterious and powerful new vampire hunter.” Moreover, he happens to be a “highly trained killing machine” which suggests some sort of military or martial arts background. All in all, he sounds pretty damn lethal! Luckily, Todd is well known for his tough-guy television roles in The Chicago Code and In Plain Sight so we can definitely see him blasting the town’s big bad evils with vervaine grenades and knowing how to operate a bow and arrow better than even Katniss Everdeen herself.
Are you excited to see Todd Williams in action as Connor when The Vampire Diaries Season 4 kicks off in October? Do you think he’s one of the “good” guys?
