Australian actor Louis Hunter has been cast as a drug dealer named “Nick Armstrong” in CW’s pilot episode of “Secret Circle,” alongside previously announced Phoebe Tonkin, Brittany Robertson, Thomas Dekker, Shelley Hennig, and Jessica Parker.
Hennig will be playing “Diana,” the leader of the seven-member coven who has been dating Adam (Dekker) since childhood. Kennedy also recently 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.
