Vampire Diaries Spoilers: 3 Female Heretic Villains Cast For Season 7
Per Variety, we learned the actresses playing three of Lily Salvatore’s (Annie Wersching) heretic family — which includes the show’s first-ever lesbian couple. Check it out:
Elizabeth Blackmore has been cast as Valerie, who has super powerful magic and a dark, moody attitude to match. Apparently this chick is having some “difficulty adjusting to life in Mystic Falls” and isn’t cool with Lily’s peaceful ways. Sounds like Lily will be trying to control them, which we’re afraid could spell disaster for the Salvatore mama. Valerie is set on revenge and decides to “start a dangerous chain of events that will change Mystic Falls.” Maybe she’s why the town looks like it was hit by an atomic bomb at the end of the Season 6 finale?
You might recognize Elizabeth from Legend of the Seeker.
As for the same-sex couple? Scarlett Byrne (left) and Teressa Liane (right) will play Nora and Mary Louise, respectively. Nora — who isn’t happy living with the regular folks of Mystic Falls and counts mayhem among her favorite pastimes — is another heretic described as adorably tomboyish with a sly sense of humor and strong magic. Mary Louise also has strong magic and is described as being a bit more girly and not one to shy away from voicing her opinion.
You’ll remember Scarlett from Falling Skies and a couple Harry Potter films while Teressa from Neighbours.
We look forward to meeting these three badass ladies in the Season 7 premiere.
The Vampire Diaries returns to The CW for Season 7 on October 8.
