If you didn’t already know from the various interviews we posted featuring her love for all things supernatural, we have a giant crush on Alyssa Diaz. The Nine Lives of Chloe King star wowed us as empowered and brave Mai leader Jasmine, on the show, and this fall she’s returning to television to kick ass as one of Klaus’ new hybrids along with 90210 stud, Blake Hood!
Wait – hold up – what? Yes, the rumors are true. According to TV Guide, in between trying to woo Caroline in Tyler’s body and learning simple football techniques in order to pass himself off as an ideal athlete, Klaus will be spending his days rounding up a ferocious wolf pack in Vampire Diaries Season 4.
Alyssa is set to play a hybrid named Kimberly and Blake is taking on the role of Dean. (As you can tell, both are very easy on the eyes and we assure you that they are beyond talented — Alyssa is even well-versed in martial arts!) They will first appear in episodes 6 and 5 respectively. (We’re wondering if Alyssa’s TNLOCK co-star, Grace Phipps, is as excited about working on the same show as her friend again just as much as Phoebe Tonkin is to be reunited with Claire Holt!)
So tell us fang fans — what do you think of Klaus’ fresh set of recruits? Are you worried about all the trouble they’ll rouse up as hybrids? Post your feedback in the comments!
