MacGyver Reboot Adds Vampire Diaries' Tristin Mays as Series Regular

MacGyver has recruited his final team member in advance of his return to television this fall.

Tristin Mays (The Vampire Diaries) has joined the CBS reboot as a series regular, TVLine has learned. Mays will play Riley Davis, a “highly unpredictable” computer hacker who isn’t exactly thrilled to be working alongside MacGyver and his team — but it sure beats rotting in prison, right? (Note: This completes casting for the retooled reboot.)

Riley will make her first appearance in MacGyver’s series premiere, airing Friday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c. In addition to TVD, Mays’ small-screen credits include roles on Supergirl, The Newsroom and Everybody Hates Chris.

MacGyver also stars Lucas Till, George Eads, Justin Hires and Sandrine Holt.
