Pilot Scoop: Supernatural Spin-Off Casts Pretty Little Liars' Sean Faris as Wolfy Lead
One of Rosewood’s finest is joining Supernatural: Tribes.
Sean Faris, currently recurring as Officer Gabriel Holbrook on Pretty Little Liars, has been tapped to play a werewolf on The CW’s planted spin-off, TVLine has learned.
Tribes is being described as a sweeping drama about the various mafia-esque monster families that unknowingly-to-humans “run” the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly-minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural.
Faris will star as Julian Durant, the son of a wealthy family of lycanthropes who has no love for the shapeshifting Hayden clan.
He joins the recently cast Nathaniel Buzolic (The Originals), as shapeshifter David Hayden, and Lucien Laviscount (Episodes, Skins), who will portray Ennis Roth, a resolute police academy trainee whose fiancée is killed in the crossfire of the monster war. The tragedy leads him to the truth about what lurks in the shadows and to become a monster-hunter himself.
The trio will appear in this season’s 20th episode of Supernatural — aka Tribes’ de-facto pilot — airing April 29.
No stranger to the supernatural, Faris played jock-turned-vampire Ben on Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries. He also starred on Reunion and Life As We Know It.
