Vampire Diaries Rayna Cast

Vampire Diaries Scoop: Meet Rayna, Season 7's Lethal New Vampire Hunter

Damon and Stefan’s lady problems on The Vampire Diaries are about to get so much worse.

Episode 712 will introduce Leslie-Anne Huff (NCIS) as Rayna, a vicious vampire hunter who “returns to the world of the living after being taken out by her enemies,” TVLine has learned. Described as “fierce, driven, smart and confident,” Rayna literally can’t rest until she’s exacted her vengeance — which probably isn’t great news for our Mystic Falls faves.

(Also, no, we’re not going to address the fact that she looks exactly like Elena. Nope, not even going to bring it up.)
