We already know that death is following the new college freshmen to Whitmore College, and it looks like class will be as drama-filled as their social lives. Rick Cosnett has been cast as the mysterious and possibly villainous Dr. Wes Maxfield, EW reports.
A brilliant biology professor at Whitmore College, Dr. Maxfield “makes fast enemies” with his students Caroline and Elena. And when Caroline and Elena begin to think that their professor is “hiding a dark and dangerous secret,” you know the vamps will stop at nothing to uncover what the possibly evil faculty member is hiding.
And hey, though he might be hiding a dark secret and won’t be making Elena and Caroline’s educational lives easy, it certainly doesn’t hurt that he’s easy on the eyes. Silver lining?
“The Vampire Diaries” Season 5 premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
