    I love new characters coming in, but I already have trouble keeping track of who’s who now, and who’s dead in which season. The family trees are driving me crazy!
    Can’t wait for October!

  • Henrita

    he is hot

  • James_Ever

    I approve. I hope that Shane and Bonnie have a great story arc.

    Ha! Welcome aboard. I’ve seen him the The Tudors, and he did a good job.

    Seeing his photos on the IMBD make me think he would look really good next to Bonnie;) Seeing how he’s going to be playing “Professor Shane” and has a  connection to Bonnie’s family, I wonder if he was a student of Grams’…after all, she Grams taught occult at the local university. That could be the connection they’re talking about. Either way, he’s a cutie. TVD has such a talent for casting really actors to play these characters. Looking forward to meeting him, and can’t help but wonder what his role is going to be in the upcoming season;)

     When I first saw his picture I thought TVD just added more “Eye Candy” to enjoy.  The second thing that came to mind was that he had been a student of Bonnie’s Grandmother (Grams) when she taught  the “occult” class at the local college.  The third thing that came to mind was how great Bonnie would look next to him.  I am very much looking forward to Professor Shane.  ;)

  • Manningtod555

    looks too young to be a professor to me,too cute too

  • From Beginning To End

    He looks sort of like an older Jeremy. In that pic anyway. 

  • Mehr03

    He is handsome and is linked to Bonnie… I cannot wait!!!

  • Iansfan

    I wish I ´d ever met such a good looking prof at my university. … LoL But we had ways to prolong witches´lives with one of Klaus witches so why shouldn´t he do something to stay young and yummie too. People in MF apparently never ask and the audience will surely appreciate it! 
    Wish it was October….

  • ihatepeople

    Tick tock…You have just under 2 months to get your computer fixed. The count down is on. :)

    I’m interested in the occult background this guy will bring and what it could mean for Bonnie.

  • ash

    Today (Tuesday, August 21, 2012) is the last day of filming for episode 4, which is the flashback to 1100 and it is also the Halloween episode. It will air on November 1st.  This is going to be a “biggie”! Looks like it was written by Rebecca Sonnenshine, Brett Matthews and Julie Plec (all three have been in Atlanta during filming).  Joshua Butler (@TheJoshuaButler:twitter ) is the director and he has been very good about tweeting.

    From what I can tell so far:
    Episode 1 – Growing Pains-written by Caroline Dries

    Episode 2- Memorial -written by Jose Molina

    Episode 3 – untitled – written by Brian Young

    Episode 4 -untitled – written by Rebecca Sonnenshine, Brett Matthews, Julie Plec (of course Julie is involved with most of the episodes)

    Episode 5 – untitled- written by Michael Narducci.  (This episode is going to be very edgy. According to Kat Graham this episode will be full of action and stunts)  The table read for this episode took place Monday, 08/20/2012, and Candice Accola tweeted out a hint posted below.

    Episode 6 – untitled- written by Evan Bleiweiss

    This should be very promising. Bonnie needs someone in her life to connect to, since the relationship between her and Jeremy was a total faliure, mostly because of Jeremy. Him and Elena are just annoying. Go Bonnie and her family tree!! ^_^
