Here’s what we know about the character so far: Aaron will show up in season five at Whitmore College, where Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) are freshmen. Aaron wants to escape his past, which includes a dark family tragedy.
Surviving whatever mysterious tragedy that Aaron wants to put behind him will be what helps him bond with Elena very quickly. But just how close will the two become and should Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena fans worry about the new hottie?
Time will tell, but we have to admit that it’s refreshing to have a potential new love interest thrown into the mix whose last name is not Salvatore. The role will be heavily recurring.
In addition to “Life Unexpected” and “Melrose Place”, Sipos has appeared in “Smallville”, “CSI: Miami” and “Shark.”
E! Online was the first to report the casting.
