In an article at Entertainment Weekly, it is reported Britt Robertson (“Life Unexpected”) is the first actor cast in the much anticipated pilot for TheCW series “Secret Circle” based on books by L.J. Smith.
Recently Kevin Williamson (“Vampire Diaries,” “Scream”) joined as producer alongside Andrew Miller, (“Imaginary Bitches”) whose team includes executive producers/writers Elizabeth Craft (“Dollhouse,” “Lie to Me,” “The Vampire Diaries”) Sarah Fain (“The Vampire Diaries ,” “Angel,” “Dollhouse”) and Leslie Morgenstein (“Pretty Little Liars,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl”.)
The “Secret Circle” will be a bittersweet transition for the starlet who struck a chord with viewers as Lux Cassidy in “Life Unexpected,” a series which unfortunately appears unlikely to be picked up for another season on TheCW. However for some fans of L.J.Smith and “Life Unexpected,” the news couldn’t be better. Just don’t expect “Secret Circle” to have the same menagerie of witches, vampires, and werewolves like in “The Vampire Diaries.” Instead, viewers will find themselves in New Salem, a small town where witchcraft is as real as the secrets it keeps hidden.
The only question that remains is the role Robertson will play since there has been no specification. If we were to go by the books and looks alone there is potential in Cassie Blake, the central character who has light brown hair and blue eyes. She is the smart and down to earth girl who happens to be new in town. While another significant character, most likely a starring role as well, Diana Meade has blond hair and green eyes. She is a popular girl who despite her angelic features and social status is far from the mean girl one might expect to find in high school.
