simon miller tvd 'Vampire Diaries': Simon Miller signs on as the leader of the packAncestry is key on “The Vampire Diaries,” and the Lockwood family is no exception. We’re about to learn a lot more about the Lockwood family curse — in case you’ve been living under a rock, they’re werewolves. Now, Simon Miller has been cast as the patriarch of the Lockwood pack, George Lockwood.

Miller, a professional photographer, is a relative newcomer to acting, though you might recognize him from short roles on “Gossip Girl” and “CSI” or his indie movie “Between Love & Goodbye.”

With those good looks, I completely believe that this guy could’ve spawned Michael Trevino and Taylor Kinney.

Miller’s first episode is “Memory Lane,” the fourth episode of Season 2. Ladies and gentlemen, we have flashbacks! The episode, which is currently shooting in Atlanta, will introduce the Lockwood ancestors for the first time.

Though the Mystic Falls werewolves aren’t exactly BFFs with the vampires, it seems that George may have to conspire with Katherine (Nina Dobrev) a bit. That’s never a good thing.
