Casting news for the Warner Bros. and CW pilot – The Secret Circle – is coming in fast. Last week we reported that Thomas Dekker had been cast as Adam. Yesterday we posted that Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin had joined the cast as the main antagonist and coven member Faye.
Today it’s been announced that former Smallville recurring actress, Jessica Parker Kennedy, has secured the role of Melissa. Melissa is apparently not a character that appears in the original book series of the same name by L.J. Smith. However, she will apparently be another member of the witches coven in New Salem and also a friend of Faye.
As mentioned, Kennedy previously had a role as Plastique on Smallville. She’s had guest roles on other television shows such as V, Lie to Me and Brothers & Sisters and she also appeared in the movie A Cinderalla Story with Hillary Duff and Chad Michael Murray.
The Secret Circle pilot will be filming in Vancouver, Canada, and will likely film there (as many Warner Bros/CW shows do) if it gets picked up as a series.
