Switched at Birth Casts Vampire Diaries Actress in 'Unexpected' Role

Zach’s Vampire Diaries daughter is getting caught up in Switched at Birth‘s family drama.

Tristin Mays — who played the late Salvatore’s offspring, Sarah Nelson, on TVD — will recur on Season 5 of the Freeform drama as college student Ally, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Ally makes her debut in Episode 6 and has unexpected ties to the Kennish/Vasquez clan.

Mays’ TV credits include appearances on Supergirl, The Newsroom and Big Time Rush.

The actress joins Season 5 additions Valery Ortiz (Hit the Floor) as a renowned tattoo artist and Michael Galante (Jane the Virgin, NCIS) as a UMKC college student who bonds with Regina.

    Gosh I hope she’s a love interest for Daphne. The series has tackled many issues, and a queer-exploration story would be very fitting for the show. Plus, they consistently give Daphne the *worst* boyfriends…maybe she needs a girlfriend

    So… Is she never returning to Vampire Diaries…? That plot line just… Went nowhere… Really?

      RIGHT?! Thank you! I thought the Sarah arc had some promise (was really looking forward to seeing Stefan bond with his many-times-great niece or whatever she was), but then they just dropped it like a hot potato. :/

    Watch her be like a cousin or another sister or something. I just want the next season to come out already.

    Just bring back the next season already!! I’m sure she’ll be another sister or something. What happened to the step sister that was adopted? Haven’t seen her since!

    Angelo had another daughter? I read somewhere he was coming back for the 100th episode in flashbacks…
