The Vampire Diaries is doing something it's never done before.

The CW drama just cast its first gay character, Whitmore college student Luke, who will befriend Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola), according to E! Online.

Chris Brochu, who has appeared on CSI: NY and NCIS: Los Angeles, among other shows, will play the role and make his debut in episode 16 on the show.

And it looks like Luke will be stirring up some drama.

According to the site, Luke has come into Elena and Caroline's lives for "mysterious and dangerous reasons" relating to the tension between the witches and the travelers.


The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday at 8 p.m. on the CW.
