The CW’s “Shelter” pilot is rounding out its cast. As if we didn’t already love the script enough, executive producers J.J. Abrams and Mark Schwahn have now chosen Malese Jow — one of our favorites — to play Morgan, a 22-year-old “party girl” type who works at the Shelter Bay Inn.
Best known for her role as teen vampire Anna on “Vampire Diaries” and Lucy on Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush,” this role is definitely a more adult turn for Jow. Let’s just say Morgan’s reputation for promiscuity isn’t exactly unfounded. Homegirl likes to spread the wealth.
In fact, one of her lust interests is faded rocker Tyler Green, played by fellow “Vampire Diaries” alum Trent Ford — though the two never shared scenes together on “TVD.”
“Shelter” is shooting in North Carolina. The casting was first reported by Deadline.
