Michaela McManus Joins Vampire Diaries

She’s been seen in a wide variety of shows – from CSI:Miami to One Tree Hill – but now Law & Order: SVU actress Michaela McManus is set to be the latest addition to CW’s hit series The Vampire Diaries as Jules, who is a friend of  Mason Lockwood- the Black Sheep of Mystic’s Fall’s Mayoral family who had his heart ripped out (quite literally) by Damon Salvatore in the 6th episode of the show’s new season.

Mason arrived in the season premiere of the show’s second series after the death of his brother, Mayor Lockwood in the thrilling season one finale. We would soon learn that the Lockwood family harboured a dark secret, and the arrival of the Temptress Katherine would herald a new danger when we learn of her relationship with Mason, who is merely her tool in order for her to get her hands on a Moonstone which has been passed down through generations of the Lockwood Family since 1864.

Jules is said to come to Mystic Falls in search of her werewolf friend and along the way is said to get flirtatious with our local bad boy, Damon, as he tries to hinder Jules’ search through his usual flirtatious methods. But this, will not be a thing of romance as she is in town strictly for business.  McManus is not the only former CW star to join The Vampire Diaries as Supernatural’s Lauren Cohan (Bela Talbot from the show’s third season) is joining the show in 2×08 as the 500 year old vampire, Rose, along with Trent Ford and Daniel Gillies.

Michaela’s character is set to arrive on our screens in December.

Vampire Diaries can be seen on ITV2 on Tuesday nights at 9pm.
