The Vampire Diaries Recruits Heather Hemmens and Chris Brochu For Season 4 Roles

​The Vampire Diaries is recruiting some fresh blood, including the show's first-ever gay character! (It just took five seasons to get there.)

Chris Brochu will be playing Luke, who, according to E! Online, is a "fun and charming" student who befriends Elena and Caroline. He apparently has a secret agenda, too. Oh, and he's gay. If Chris's face looks familiar, you may know him from CSI: NY or maybe Melissa & Joey... or going farther back, an episode of Hannah Montana in 2007.

Heather Hemmens of Hellcats will finally give a face to Maggie, a lab assistant to Dr. Whitmore who Enzo fell in love with in the '50s, starting in episode 19. This doesn't sound like it'll be complicated at all!

Are you stoked to meet these new (ish) characters? Let us know your thoughts below!
