hart of dixie lauren bittner 'Hart of Dixie' casts 'Paranormal Activity's' Lauren Bittner   What is her connection to Zoe?

We’ve met Zoe’s parents who raised her, and though her biological father died before she ever met him, we’re finally getting a look at his side of the family. 

“Hart of Dixie” just cast Zoe Hart’s cousin, and she’s coming to Bluebell.

Actress Lauren Bittner has joined The CW’s southern charmer, TVLine reports. She will play a recurring role in Season 3 as Vivian, a relative of Zoe’s late doctor dad Harley Wilkes.

No word yet on how Vivian will get along with newfound cousin Zoe — or if she will side with the rest of Bluebell and hate Zoe’s guts, as she starts off Season 3 in pretty bad standing with the town she abandoned in the Season 2 finale.

Bittner is best known for her role in “Paranormal Activity 3.” She joins the previously reported “One Tree Hill” alum Robert Buckley and “Chuck” vet Ryan McPartlin for “Hart of Dixie’s” third season.

“Hart of Dixie” Season 3 premieres Monday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
