Vampire Diaries Hires Following Actress as Head of Mysterious Organization

There’s a new order coming to The Vampire Diaries this season — but can its leader be trusted?

Mouzam Makkar (The Following, American Horror Story) will recur as Alex, a “beautiful, charming and cocky researcher at the head of a mysterious organization,” TVLine has learned exclusively. Described as a “viper in sheep’s clothing,” she’ll make her first appearance in Episode 714.

“She has ties to Enzo’s backstory,” executive producer Caroline Dries tells TVLine. “As he’s trying to find his place in the world, she comes in and says, ‘Let me help you out with that.’ Is she good? Is she bad? What’s her bigger agenda? We’ll pull back her layers as the season goes on.”

The Vampire Diaries returns with new episodes Friday, Jan. 29 at 8/7c on The CW.

TVD fans, are you curious about this new “organization,” and how Enzo — and potentially Matt — will become involved? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Either a Vampire or a Vampire Hunter.Maybe that’s why he was taken out.

    • Missy says:

      Why does this scream Sarah Salvatore take #2? They dropped the ball with that useless Enzo revenge plot against Stefan so I’m expecting that this will fizzle out before season end. Ugh Sorry tvd you can’t make Enzo relevant.

  2. Beba says:

    well we saw the leaked script, she’s know about Enzo’s family in fact she might be related to him so there’s that. Plus we always know due to the leaked script that something bad happens after there meeting, since she wants to kill him afterwards and asked Nora for help/

  3. Ian says:

    Ok, but where’s Bonnie’s storyline?

    • Malachi says:

      Is just like the other side: non existent

    • tvjunkie says:

      does it matter, whenever she gets one they’re all the same…complain, b1tch, moan…rinse and repeat. it’s like they have no idea how to write for her character other than make her an annoying nag. I don’t blame the actress for that, it’s the writers.

      • TJ says:

        How is Bonnie an annoying nag? I can think of at least three other characters that always whine in every episode…Caroline, Damon and Alaric. If Bonnie does whine it’s only because the writers make her sacrifice her life or make her in pain (anchor anyone? or the latest the stone with painful visions) almost always because of the three characters I’ve already named. At least she has a reason to whine. Bonnie should have one of the most interesting s/l on tvd since she’ s suppose to be from a powerful line of witches but the writers don’t know how to write their own mythology. That’s why TO is a much better written show.

  4. Jake says:

    Maybe she kills them all and ends the stupid TVD and perhaps even T.O.

    • Missy says:

      One can only hope.

    • Malachi says:

      Can’t kill the originals but TVD yes

    • Phoenix5634 says:

      I don’t get why “fans”, like, you must be a fan or you wouldn’t be here, post negetive comments… It’s useless, like even you should want a good ending eventually. And besides, these shows are still going strong with the storylines, I’m getting really annoyed of these “fans” who are trash talking the show becuz Nina left, or some other “ship” isn’t going the way they want. The storylines are still strong and could go for YEARS still, especially TO.

      • Ric says:

        I’m pretty sure the comments section is for anyone that has an opinion about the tv show. My advice to you would be if you don’t like reading other ppls opinions DON’T read the comments section! It’s really not that hard. People will always have an opinion different than yours whether positive or negative, get over it because people aren’t going to stop just because you don’t like what they have to say. Have you ever thought that maybe people don’t like what you have to say and get annoyed?

      • Malachi says:

        Cause it true. Don’t bash people for saying something negative about TVD. It needed to be said. The storylines this season are horrible and most of the fan base doesn’t even give to cares about any of the story arcs this season. CW Will end this for something new. Nor like it a surprise

        • Phoenix5634 says:

          Negetive comments don’t have to be negetive, you could say the same thing but in a creative way that may actually assist the show instead of just bashing a show you claim to be a fan of. Especially when most ur show bashing comments seem like an upset toddler becuz you didn’t get ur ship u wanted, or maybe it cuz Nina left, but either way you people are stupid you’re sabotaging a show you’ve watched for up to 7 years over. When in reality the shows story is going great, an basically the only thing hurting the show is fans like you.

          • Malachi says:

            Oh so when someone says something negative it hurting. No other show On The CW right now(TO included) is having negativity at this level. tVDis nothing more then character ruining fan Service and never ending false promises and hopes Julie Plec throws at us. Heretics are a prime example. Where’s this big fear and all powerful group of evil vampire witches? Or the fact they still Had no type of development for Bonnie or Matt. You sit here talking about we’re the problem just cause we point out flaws in the show well cause it there. That not no one’s fault but the show itself

          • Phoenix5634 says:

            Well maybe if you gave the heretics a chance, we’ve seen them for like what half a season now, and most of that time they were being held back by lilly. Fans like you really need to get over Nina, or I dunno learn some patience. The show is actually doing really good with plot/ and storyline wise. Fans like you are nothing more than irrational shippers who actually are the reason a lot of good shows end too early.

    Wen is Elena coming back?

  6. courtney says:

    these photos are awsome but could use some teen wolf or shadow hunters

  7. pebbles51 says:

    The Originals have a secret organization called the Strix, now TVD has one too.

  8. dan says:

    Vampire hunter group

  9. Honey Jackson says:

    Honestly,I’m not thrilled with the way the arcs are going,3years into the future?The back & forth is tiring,but,I’m not Julie plec,or the writers.whatever the outcome, I just wish there could be some “lightness”for the main characters before the end of the series.
