Cassidy Freeman lands Vampire Diaries role

The Vampire DiariesCassidy Freeman is to guest star in supernatural drama series The Vampire Diaries.

The actress will be most familiar to viewers for her role in fellow CW drama Smallville as Tess Mercer, a role she played between 2008 and 2011. Most recently she appeared in NBC‘s quickly dispatched drama The Playboy Club which is only really notable because it incurred the wrath of the Parents Television Council. TVLine reports the actress has landed a guest role in The Vampire Diaries, appearing in the 16th episode of the current series.

The actress will play ‘Sage’ who, the entertainment news site says, is ‘sexy and fearless with a devilish smile’. The actress will only appear in flashbacks to 1912 with her allure felt by both Salvatore brothers (played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley) as well as the original Vampire family. The role has the potential to become recurring.
