Lisa Tucker cast as Greta, Paul & Joseph join Twitter + another guest star

The ever reliable Carina Mackenzie dropped a “Vampire” bombshell once again. A couple of days ago, she confirmed that Lisa Tucker has been cast as Luka’s sister. You may recognize her from the fifth season of the hit show “American Idol”. However, she made her debut as actress on “The O.C”. EW was the first to mention the character of Greta. Now, we have more scoop on the last Martin via Zap2it. She’s set to appear in two to four episodes, including the much anticipated finale. Read more below and visit Zap2it for the full article.

Greta is described as “cool, hip, smart,” and “a bit of a thrill-seeker.” Witches are going to play a huge part in the sacrifice and the Salvatores’ quest to kill Klaus, especially now that Jonas, with his dying breath, gave Bonnie (Katerina Graham) the tools to make the kill. Greta will appear in at least two episodes, but we’re hearing that she may actually appear in four — including the big finale.

I’m more than happy to tell you that not one, but two cast members have recently joined Twitter! First, Joseph Morgan (@_josephmorgan) made his current and future fans by creating an account. Paul Wesley (@paulwesley) himself followed “Klaus” and “succumbed to the lure” of the social network. They were both warmly welcome by TVD family (Paul made Twitter explode by gaining more than 100,000 followers in less than a week!). A bit of advice: go follow these two if you haven’t yet. You know you want to. ūüėČ

Pittsburghlive.com interviewed Gino Anthony Pesi a few weeks ago. He’s one of the main supporting guys in “Battle: Los Angeles”, which has been released this month. In their chat, Pesi teases an upcoming role in “Vampire Diaries”. His character is a warlock named Maddox. There’s no current information on whose side he is or how long he will stick around. Anyway, he’d better NOT be killed. With that pretty face, it would be a great loss.

Currently, he’s working on something completely different — the CW Network’s “The Vampire Diaries.”

“My character is a guy named Maddox, and he’s a warlock. It’s kind of fun, because I basically hold up my hand and people go flying off walls.”
