'The Vampire Diaries': Torrey DeVitto lands recurring role

torrey-devitto.jpgYou might've heard of the newest guest star scheduled to visit Mystic Falls when "The Vampire Diaries" returns from its winter hiatus in 2012.

Torrey DeVitto, a.k.a. Mrs. Paul Wesley, is set to play "an intelligent young doctor" on the CW soap for at least two episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She'll first show up in the third season's tenth and eleventh episodes, but will likely continue to recur afterward. (We all know how loyal this show is to its guest stars -- they pretty much dedicated an entire episode to bringing all the most beloved ones back with "Ghost World.")

Potentially awkward plot point: DeVitto will likely be a love interest for Alaric ( Matt Davis), not Stefan (her real-life husband). That'll make for some tense craft service lunches!

DeVitto is no stranger to The CW, having appeared as the delightfully evil Nanny Carrie on "One Tree Hill." She can also be seen as Melissa Hastings on ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars."
