The Secret Circle’s Shelley Hennig: Why I Want Diana to Be Cassie’s Balcoin Sister
The Secret Circle gang are all a flutter over the upcoming arrival of John Blackwell — but who’s the most excited about this man-babe’s return to town? Diana (Shelley Hennig)! Sure, John is Cassie’s (Britt Robertson) dad, but expect to see Diana show a lot of interest in this man of mystery.
“Diana's actually the one who's looking at it like, ‘Oh my God, you've got your dad back! We've all wished we could have our dead parents back, and here you are’” Shelly Hennig explains to TV Guide. “Diana's really intrigued with him being back, but also on guard, just like the rest of us are.”
Sounds like Diana and John have a connection. Could she be his illegitimate love-child? “I think it'd be awesome and I think it would explain the connection that Diana has with Cassie, and why she goes to Cassie when she breaks up with Adam Conant [Thomas Dekker],” Shelley says. “Like, who does that? Who goes to the girl that now has your boyfriend? I think it will be interesting whatever way that they choose.”
Now that she mentions it, Diana was holding her party dress when it exploded into flames the night of the fire/ice dance. Maybe it was her dark magic that ignited it — not Cassie’s!
