Here’s a small casting tidbit from Ask Ausiello. Very spoilery…so you have been warned.

Question: Vampire Diaries scoop pretty please with a Smurf on top? —Randi

Ausiello: New blood alert! The show is casting the potentially recurring role of Vanessa, a very attractive, smart, young grad student who assists Damon and Alaric with their werewolf research at Alaric’s alma mater, Duke University.

Update: Also TV Fanatic is reporting that this new character will be a new species called a Blue Devil.
