“Days of Our Lives” actress Shelley Hennig (pictured inside) and “Smallville”‘s Jessica Parker Kennedy have both been cast in CW’s pilot episode of “Secret Circle,” alongside previously announced Phoebe Tonkin, Brittany Robertson and Thomas Dekker.
Hennig will play “Diana,” the leader of the seven-member coven who has been dating Adam (Dekker) since childhood. Kennedy signed on to play coven member “Melissa.”
Kevin Williamson recently came onboard “Secret Circle,” which is based on a three-book series from “The Vampire Diaries” author L.J. Smith. It centers on a California teen (Robertson) who moves to her mom’s hometown of New Salem and discovers that she is a witch. Williamson is now working on the script and serving as an executive producer on the project, which, with its auspices, has emerged as a strong contender for a pilot pickup.
Shooting begins this month in Vancouver.
