Sounds like Tyler and Klaus should be worried! New Vampire Diaries Season 5 cast member Kendrick Sampson, who plays Jesse, has confirmed that he’ll be paying very close attention to Caroline (Candice Accola).

Sampson talked to TV Fanatic on camera about Jesse’s role on TVD this season, and said his character is definitely interested in Caroline, and is the kind of of guy who “doesn’t take no for an answer”

The handsome newcomer said, “He’s [Jesse] a cool guy, charming… He’s persistent, he’s a fighter. He’s very determined to get what he’s going after.” Uh-oh. Caroline might want to keep her flirty attitude in check!

Though Kendrick offered very little details about what Jesse’s reason for coming to Mystic Falls, he did say, “You can expect some secrets …” Well, of course! It wouldn’t be The Vampire Diaries without a few of those.

Kendrick also said that he’s a “big Twitter and Instagram fan … especially instagram” which we kind of knew already from this goofy photo with co-star Nina Dobrev. We’ve signed up to follow him (@kendrick38) on both accounts, just in case he leaks more clues about the upcoming season’s plot points.

Thankfully, we’ve got less than 2 weeks before the premiere, so we don’t have that much longer to wait until we see Jesse in action!
