If there’s one thing we’ve been looking forward to on Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries — except for all the steamy Delena moments — it’s newcomer Janina Gavankar, who plays Tessa, a girl from the Salvatore brothers’ past. And if there’s anything this True Blood actress is going to be bringing to the new season, it’s an absolute truth that’s going to rock Mystic Falls and the brotastic relationship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder).
Janina told HollywoodLife.com that the truth Tessa brings is going to change the way we think about Stefan. Uh-oh! Luckily for us, we don’t have to wait very long because Tessa is going to be showing up in Episode 3: “Original Sin,” which airs October 17.
And don’t think Damon is going to escape all this truth-spitting that Tessa’s going to bring.
“I can’t tell you exactly what she tells [Damon], but Tessa knows all. She’s about to drop a bomb [on Damon and Stefan], whether they want to hear it or not, which they don’t,” Janina said. “Most people don’t want to know what she knows, but she’s about to make them face the truth. She’s like, ‘Listen, sit down, because I’m about to handle things the way that I need to.’”
We totally can’t wait until Tessa makes her grand arrival to Mystic Falls this Thursday.
