Mystic Falls’ finest will be facing yet another new threat when Season 6 premieres in October — and this one’s homegrown.
Vampire Diaries Season 6: Meet the ‘Shady’ Lady Coming to Mystic Falls
) has been cast in the role of Tripp, TVLine has confirmed, the head of a community militia who will “do anything to protect his town.” He’ll make his first appearance in
Executive producer Julie Plec took to Twitter on Monday to reveal which character will be butting heads with Tripp the most:
He's in town to give Sheriff Forbes a run for her money. #TVD—
Of course, Tripp won’t be the only new character causing grief for our heroes. Actress Gabrielle Walsh has been cast in the “shady” role of Sarah, who will make her debut on the show’s sixth season premiere.
Some of the villains in the past has really been more lame than impressive. I hope his character will be different.
He does the average guy, stupid guy, funny guy, serious guy, all rolled into one so well, like he did in Eureka. I honestly have no clue how he’ll play a bad guy but his role as Jack Carter showed to me the man is talented, this casting is well deserved for him.
He plays pure evil on Haven, and is fantastic at it. So, I think he will make a formidable villain.
I was just about to say this. He’s so good at being bad on Haven. He almost makes me forget to root for the good guys. I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do on VD.
Sorry I haven’t seen Haven before. But that’s good.
Great casting…not so great show. I’ve adored Colin Ferguson since Eureka and the thought of him wading through the muck VD has become makes me a cringe. I’m desperately hoping the 6th season is phenomenally good.
He’s great, I hope he shows up as a simple Maytag repair guy and then all hell breaks loose.
I love him! Still mourning Eureka being cancelled. I was even happy to see him in the Maytag commercials. I can’t see him as villain though!
Love CF!!!! Miss seeing him on TV. Hope he can bring his own sense of humor to the role.
Awesome. It breaks my heart to see him in Maytag commercials playing a dishwasher.
That actually not a bad gig. I guessing alot of TV actor would take that job in a heartbeat
Loved jack on Eureka. Might check out this show to see him
Oh awesome. He’s so good at playing unhinged evil on Haven, and that’s in no small part due to having goofy Sheriff Carter to compare William to. It’s hard to remind myself when watching Haven that he used to be the main guy who always saved the day on Eureka.
