This New 'Vampire Diaries' Villain Looks Just Like Nina Dobrev
NCIS alum Leslie-Anne Huff, who closely resembles Nina, will appear on the show as a villain named Rayna, according to TV Line. While she'll play a "vicious vampire hunter" on the show, she surprisingly wasn't cast to play Elena's surprise long lost sister or anything like that (still, their resemblance is uncanny).
Executive producer, Caroline Dries, is aware that Leslie looks a lot like Nina., telling the site, "That's definitely just a coincidence. We looked at a lot of actors, and I was like, 'I think she looks exactly like Nina.' I was convinced otherwise. I actually haven't met her yet in person, though, and everyone says she doesn't look like her in person. She's a great actress, and she's perfect for the role...We'll get to see her present-day story and then everything will click when you see her in the future."
While Caroline was addressing that doppelganger buzz, she also revealed that Vampire Diaries fans might be a little surprised when the season picks back up next year (and not just because of Nina's twin). "You might be asking, 'What show am I watching?' when you turn on the TV," she said. "We'll be dealing with the fallout from the winter finale for a while, both emotionally and plot-wise." Gulp.
Season 7 will resume Jan. 29 on The Cw at 8/7c. Well definitely be tuning in.
