Let's just get one thing straight here: You don't cast Natasha Henstridge (most famous as a man-eating alien babe in the Species films) as a school principal without having something epic in store for her character. And thankfully, Secret Circle producer Kevin Williamson assures us that Principal Chamberlain won't stay buttoned up for long.

“Natasha Henstridge is amazing,” he gushed at the 2011 TCA Summer Press Tour. “The second episode she blows out of the water like you would not believe.” Sure, we got bad vibes from her in the pilot, but she's hardly the character we would've pegged to make waves in Chance Harbor — we'd probably leave that to her daughter, Faye (Phoebe Tonkin). “She's the mother, and the principal in the pilot,” Kevin continued. “But in the second episode... Gale Harold (Charles Meade) ain't got nothing on her.”

Did you hear that, Mr. Harold? Sounds like your boss is throwing down the gauntlet! We know the heights of villainy both the TSC adult leads are capable of, and we can't wait to see just how nasty they get this season.
