Vampire Diaries Casts Nathalie Kelley as Sybil

The Vampire Diaries Casts UnREAL Beauty — As 'Evil Herself’?

Something wicked this way comes — or, rather, someone wicked.

UnREAL alumna Nathalie Kelley is joining The Vampire Diaries for Season 8 — its final season — in the heavily recurring role of Sybil, aka “evil herself.”

But come on — can the character really be that bad? Apparently so. The casting breakdown for the dastardly immortal describes her as a power monger who manipulates her victims “into twisted games and tests for her own amusement and glorification.”

Underneath, however, Sybil is just like all of us: She only wants to be loved. (Aww.)

At the series’ Comic-Con panel Saturday, executive producer Julie Plec elaborated on what would make the minx such a formidable femme fatale. “It’s a new take on villains for us,” she said. “It’s rooted back all the way to ancient times.”

In related news, the show has cast two Containment grads, Kristen Gutoskie and Demetrius Bridges, as, respectively, Seline and Dorian, Alaric’s new nanny and intern.

Season 8 kicks off on The CW Friday, Oct. 21, at 8/7c. How do you hope the series will end? Hit the comments.

    I know this is weird but I think it would be cool if everyone dies- except Matt lol and they meet each other in that peace that Silas talked and they all “lived” happily ever after and they were in couples like Damon and Elena , Stefan and Caroline and Bonnie and Enzo and Bonnie

      When they say she Sybil comes from the begingging pretty much. They mean even though Silais was the 1st immortal she was made around the same time, He was created how? By a witch for that matter he was a witch. He just started the line of immortals. She isnt a vamp nor a witch she is just as old maybe older but a different supernatural being. Long before the 1st immortal there was still magic.
