4 August 11th, 2011 Former GH Star Sebastian Roche cast in “Vampire Diaries”!


The former bad -to-the -one, Jerry Jacks, played by Sebastian Roche is leaving his soap days at General Hospital behind and instead heading for a recurring primetime gig on the hit CW show, The Vampire Diaries!

According to VD’s executive producer, Julie Plec, who told this exclusive to Entertainment Weekly, Roche will play “a very mysterious man who appears to be hunting vampires, most specifically Klaus.”

Roche has already made a splash on set apparently, and Plec is a big fan of Sebastian’s from his Port Charles nefarious activities!

She told EW,  “He showed up for a costume fitting, and I got an email from the costume designer that all of the women in the costume fitting were flushed and atwitter because he’s a very charming, handsome man. He’s a classically-trained theater actor, he is mysterious, he has an element of danger to him,” she adds. “We liked the idea of bringing an adult into our world that wasn’t one of our founding families. He’s just got a quality that is really exciting.”

    I wish Sebastian Roche was on EVERY show I watch! I absolutely love watching that man work, especially when he’s a ‘bad’ guy. His portrayal of evil glee is so fun to watch.
