Six down, one to go, “Secret Circle” fans.
After weeks of speculation, the CW pilot based on the book series by “Vampire Diaries” author L.J. Smith has finally found its Nick. Zap2it has exclusively learned that Australian actor Louis Hunter has been cast as Nick Armstrong.
Hunter is a virtual unknown in the states but appeared in the Australian TV soap “Out of the Blue” as Kyle Mulroney in 2008.
Nick is one of seven members of the show’s coven of witches and could be described as the group’s “bad boy.” He appears to be a drug dealer and casually hooks up with Faye (fellow Aussie Phoebe Tonkin). He is new girl Cassie’s (Britt Robertson) next door neighbor.
The pilot script was written by “TVD” executive producer Kevin Williamson and Andrew Miller. Also serving as executive producers on the project are “Dollhouse” alums Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain.
For curious minds, here’s a music video Hunter recently appeared in called “The Fear”:
