It can be hard to keep Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) hybrids straight on The Vampire Diaries. There are just so many of them, and they get killed so frequently. But now that they’re in limited supply, he’ll probably keep a closer eye on Kimberly, a new face we’ll see in Season 4, Episode 8, “We’ll Always Have Bourbon Street.” Alyssa Diaz plays the half-wolf, half-vamp.

If you’ve watched TV in the past 10 years, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve seen Alyssa Diaz in something. CSI, As the World Turns, and Army Wives are just a few of the shows she’s appeared in her impressive career. ABC Family aficionados will recognize her as Jasmine from The Nine Lives of of Chloe King. (Reunion alert: TVD newcomer Grace Phipps co-starred with Alyssa on that show!)

The native Californian is of Colombian and Mexican-American descent. According to her resume, she received a BA in studio arts from Cal State University Northridge in 2009. In addition, she can sing, box, and do martial arts. Quite a list of talents!

On Twitter, she told her followers that she stays in shape with weightlifting and Zumba and showed off an adorable pic of her dog. She’s also very sweet to people who tweet at her, so let her know you’re excited to see her on TVD!
