Earlier today E! Online reported that former The Secret Circle witch, Phoebe Tonkin will be joining the cast as a recurring character named Haley. If you remember a few weeks ago, we were told that a new character named Hayley would arrive in Mystic Falls, and that she would have history with the town's resident werewolf, Tyler Lockwood.
Tonkin's casting should come as no surprise to fans of The Vampire Diaries, since executive producer Kevin Williamson stated that he'd love to have Phoebe on the show once news of The Secret Circle's cancellation broke. Whether or not, Hayley will just be Tyler's friend, or something more isn't known at this time. Nor do we know if Hayley is a supernatural, or just plain human. I for one hope we get to see her mix it up a bit with Damon, since I had dreams of a Damon/Faye crossover last season. How hot would that be? Tonkin will make her first appearance in episode 4x03.
