Who’s ready to go back to school? Yeah, neither is the Vampire Diaries cast, but the bells are about to ring at Whitmore College and class will definitely be back in session. What’s this we hear about a cute upperclassman joining the Mystic Falls gang for Season 6? Read on for the details!

The Wrap got the scoop that Marco James (The Client List) has been cast as Liam, an upperclassman at Whitmore. The site describes Liam as “cocky yet good-natured” and “a med student who comes from a family of doctors.” As for when we’ll be introduced to this smartie? That would be the Season 6 premiere on October 2.

If you ask us, it sounds like Liam will somehow be related to Dr. Wes Maxfield (Rick Cosnett) — you know, the somewhat creepy doctor who was hellbent on ridding the world of vampires? He may have been killed mercilessly by Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), but that doesn’t mean his impact is forever gone. After all, couldn’t Aaron Whitmore (Shaun Sipos) have a brother or cousin?


Marco is coming to TVD from Lifetime’s The Client List, where he played a cop named Alex Trimble. As for his other acting gigs? The hunky actor has also appeared on CSI: Miami, Victorious, and Make It or Break It. We’re definitely happy to see him hop over to The CW!

What do you think about Liam? Will he be connected to Dr. Wes or not? Hit the comments and sound off!
