Vampire Diaries sinks teeth into Gay character
The hit U.S TV show The Vampire Diaries will introduce a gay character in its latest season.
Chris Brochu, an American actor and singer, who has appeared on CSI: NY, NCIS:Los Angeles and Melissa and Joey will play Luke, 'a fun and charming student at Whitmore college who bonds with Elena and Caroline.'
The character will be introduced in episode 16 of the current season.
Creator Kevin Williamson explains his decision to wait before introducing a gay character.
"It's one of those things that needs to feel organic and seamless.I don't want it to be a character that comes in and is a one-off. I want someone to come in and have a reason and a purpose and really push that story forward."
