Warning: Spoilers ahead!!!
There are a few departed souls who will be resurfacing on Mystic Falls when The Vampire Diaries
return with new episodes beginning January 21. One of which, according to TV Guide Magazine
, is Harper, a character played by All My Children
vet Sterling Sulieman.
Executive producer Julie Plec tells TV Guide
that Harper is an entombed vampire and union soldier who we'll be seeing soon, specifically on the February 11 episode of The Vampire Diaries
. Sulieman, who also appears as CTU Agent Tac on this season's 24
, is expected to stick around for at least three more episodes.
"Not going to Atlanta till Monday! but I got fitted for my Vampire Eyes. Also got to try on the black ones from true blood. Creepy," Sulieman shared his excitement about his new role with his Twitter followers.
Harper, however, isn't the only entombed vampire getting a wakeup call. Also next month, fans will see Nina Dobrev as the late Katherine, as well as "another assumed-dead lady" who will "order a very rare filet at the Mystic Falls Grill very soon." Any guesses?
