Clearly Mystic Falls has become very desirable real estate because I can hardly keep up with the new characters bowling into our beloved town in season six.
After the announcement of three new characters over the past week, yet another two are set to join [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) cast.
The first announced was Hit the Floor's Jodi Lyn O’Keefe who will be joining the VD family as Jo. She has been described by producers as;
A tough and accomplished doctor at the university hospital. She demands excellence from her students and has learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession
She also happens to be quite foxy! Check out O'Keefe's picture below:
There is even less information about the second character cast at the moment. Marco James of [The Client List](series:761579) will also join the aftermath of Project Kaboom as Liam.
Liam is simply described as;
An upperclassman at Whitmore College who also happens to be a med student
He is also, coincidentally, quite easy on the eye.
Check out Jame's razor jawline below:
Who knows what these two might be up to, but as soon as I saw that Jo had "learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession" my imagination started racing.
If she is responsible for killing people through her job as a medical professional, maybe she has some sort of hidden supernatural connection to death that could be one of the puzzle pieces that brings Damon and Bonnies back... Or, maybe I'm just getting a bit desperate in my speculation.
What do you guys think?
Are The Vampire Diaries team bringing in too many new characters for season 6?
