We bloody loved, and still mourn, cancelled ABC Family gem The Nine Lives of Chloe King here at GTTV, and actress Grace Phipps, who played best friend Amy, was a big part of that. Good news then, that she’s joining Vampire Diaries for its fourth season.
She’s joined as recurring character April, a regular human who moves to Mystic Falls after the death of a loved one. She’ll fit right in, then. Notes describe her as a “natural beauty with a bit of an edge”, and will probably have known Elena and Jeremy as a child.
The show needs new blood, if you’ll pardon the pun, and definitely needs more beating hearts after Elena’s was stopped in the season three finale, so this is great news. Maybe this is a new love interest for Matt? [TV Fanatic]
