TV Line reports that Species beauty Natasha Henstridge has joined the widening cast of CW’s pilot episode of “Secret Circle,” alongside previously announced Phoebe Tonkin, Brittany Robertson, Thomas Dekker, Shelley Hennig, Louis Hunter, and Jessica Parker.
Henstridge will play Dawn Chamberlain, the New Salem High School vice principal who was once a friend of Cassie’s mother and knows all about the coven that has ruled the town for over 300 years.
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.
