The Vampire Diaries
has had a lot of Elena Gilbert doppelgängers over the years, but it's been decided that a different approach would be taken this season.
A key role will be filled with an actress who could pass as Nina Dobrev
, and we're kind of freaking out about it.
That actress is Alexandra Chando
Chando is slated to appear on The Vampire Diaries
Season 8 Episode 8 as a doctor named Tara, who will apparently become embroiled in Damon and Stefan's plans to get the darkest souls for Cade.
Yes, the Devil is in Mystic Falls, and he's got the two Salvatore brothers doing his bidding.
A lot of supernatural series introduce the Devil one point or another, but something about the way it's being executed on The Vampire Diaries
is surprisingly fresh.
The episode will also be directed by none other than Ian Somerhalder
, who plays Damon.
It's kind of a big deal.
