The Lying Game's Alexandra Chando Scrubs Into The Vampire Diaries

Alexandra Chando ought to fit in well on The Vampire Diaries, given her past experience with doppelgängers.

Chando, who played multiple roles on ABC Family’s short-lived thriller The Lying Game, will appear in The Vampire Diaries‘ midseason premiere (Jan. 13, 8/7c) as a young doctor named Tara. In the episode, directed by Ian Somerhalder, Tara’s morals will be tested by the Salvatore brothers as they continue to hunt for dark souls.

Here’s the complete description of the episode for your viewing pleasure:

Stefan and Damon attend an anger management support group looking for their next victim. Sybil is still alive and teaching a group of high school students who she’ll later use as leverage to get Caroline to locate a historical artifact that can be used against her. Meanwhile, Stefan and Damon continue their commitment to Cade as they test the morals of a young doctor, Tara.


After The Lying Game ended in 2013, Chando maintained a steady stream of guest appearances on shows like Castle, Hindsight and Outcast.

    She looks so much like Dobrev I was afraid it was gonna be an Elena-recast announcement

  2. tawn says:

    I hope she gets scenes with Zach Roerig! Loved them on ATWT!

  3. spindae2 says:

    As far as I know she was one of the actresses that was in the inner circle when Elena was being cast reached final 2 or 3 if I’m not wrong.

    • Dominique says:

      she was! i’m pretty sure i read somewhere that one of the reasons she was ultimately not cast, was because they wanted a cast who hadn’t worked together before yet. since zach had already been cast…

  4. Rachel says:

    Agree, hope she and Matt cross paths with a wink to ATWT

  5. "A" says:

    I wonder if Alexandra Chando aka Tara might actually be a love child of Grayson or John’s making her really a Gilbert, as well Jeremy’s half sister/cousin … and/or … Elena’s half sister/cousin.

  6. Dominique says:

    man i really hope this isn’t just one episode, and i REALLY hope she’ll cross paths with matt donovan. that would just epic! #Masey

  7. Jared says:

    LOVE Alexandra Chando! Happy to see she’s on one of my favorite shows.

  8. Paula says:

    I still miss The Lying Game (and the wonderful actors/cast of characters). One of ABC Family’s better series. Maybe it would have fared better under the change to Freeform? Anyway, Alexandra is a very good and appealing actress.

    OMG I have been waiting for this….she needs to be Matt’s new love interest!
    loved them on ATWT

  11. Liz says:

    I’m sorry, but really adding new characters to a show on its way to the end seems a little pointless. They should be wrapping up the show, not adding new characters that will be half explained with little or next to nothing with what is actually going on. And another almost doppelganger on the show, so we are getting more are you look like someone I know jokes, no thanks!

  12. joanne says:

    This is gonna be lit, but I have a question is the lying game over?

  13. Kathy says:

    A nice twist could be, that Caroline would be forced to awaken Ellena having her two girls siphon the cure from her. So that she can help save Damon and Stephan. That way Damon forced to become human to please Ellena.
