From vampires to vampires.

Dawn Olivieri, who played "True Blood’s" Janice Herveaux, has joined the cast of Vampire Diaries. She will be playing the role of Andie Star, the local newscaster for Mystic Falls. Will she be shedding some light on the gruesome goings on around the town, or will she just be taking part in them? It might be awhile before we know. Olivieri has just begun shooting scenes for the recurring character in Atlanta but should be seen early next year.

Olivieri has previously appeared as Lydia on "Heroes" and Constance on "Knight Rider." Check out Stephen Amell Joins The Cast Of The Vampire Diaries for more about who else is coming to Mystic Falls.
