The Vampire Diaries Season 4 filming is underway, which means Mystic Falls High School’s newest student is roaming the halls. Zap2It reports Grace Phipps will play April, a blast from the Gilberts’ past.

The 16-year-old returns to Mystic Falls post-private school. She knew Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) way back when, and the siblings can definitely relate to her: A loss in her family causes April to move back to Mystic Falls. Executive producer Julie Plec calls her "a natural beauty with a bit of an edge."

Grace Phipps, 20, is no stranger to the supernatural. She played Amy on The Nine Lives of Chloe King. At 16, she’s a bit young for Damon (Ian Somerhalder), but we imagine she’ll soon find herself in some sort of romantic entanglement. Any guesses who she’ll pair off with?
