The Vampire Diaries’ has cast its latest bad guy, the immortal and mysterious Silas.

Actor Scott Parks has been cast in the role, which will be pivotal this spring.

It was unclear, given the events of the past few episodes – warning, Vampire Diaries spoilers ahead! – if the ancient witch would ever reveal his true self.

Silas can take on any form, an ability he’s already put to good use and surely will again as the CW series’ fourth season gears up for its finale May 16.


With the casting of Parks, however, we now know he will be seen in his original body at least once, though it’s not clear when or for how long.

That’s The Vampire Diaries for you! Always keeping you on your toes … and providing gratuitous shots of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev making out.
