Move over Matt (Zach Roerig), there’s a new human coming to Mystic Falls! Meet April (Grace Phipps), the 16-year-old daughter of fanatical preacher Pastor Young. (You know, the one who blew himself — and the Founder’s Council — up in a suicide mission.) Here’s what you absolutely, positively must know about this non-vamp-wolf-hybrid:
Elena (Nina Dobrev) used to babysit her, so April really, really looks up to the new vamp. That should be interesting, considering April’s father wanted all the vamps dead...
And April’s been described as a little touch of Season 1 Elena, with the sarcasm of Anna (Malese Jow). Sounds promising!
Plus, Elena ends up taking April under her wing and is fiercely protective over the orphaned human — we wonder how far Elena will be willing to go when it comes to keeping the fresh blood alive.
Naturally, April already has a love interest — though it’s not clear who, or how many. She also has a certain OV vying for her friendship.
We have a feeling that a human hanging around a bunch of vamps could get very... bloody.
