History may not end up remembering The Secret Circle—The CW’s sorta cash-in on its #1 hit The Vampire Diaries—as anything other than a footnote. But those of us who stuck with the witchy teen drama until its (crazy) end will remember it as being much more than that. It was a simmering cauldron of superbly weird TV elements, some of which were quickly tossed while others approached greatness. One of its best elements was present from the beginning: Phoebe Tonkin’s Faye Chamberlain, the dark-haired, (secretly not very) mean girl who alternated between snarky one-liners and naked vulnerability to a whiplash-inducing extent. Say what you will about The Secret Circle’s place in TV history, it did at least one undisputedly important thing: It introduced America to Tonkin and, in my opinion, Hollywood now owes Australia a THANK-YOU NOTE. (Well, after the Hemsworth one.)
Plus teen monster fans can now rejoice! This week worlds will collide in a truly awesome way when Tonkin joins The Vampire Diaries as Hayley, a wayward orphan werewolf who may come between Tyler and Caroline. While it’s up in the air just how long Hayley will stick around Mystic Falls (TVD guest-stars don’t have the highest survival rates), Tonkin spoke to me last week from Atlanta (which, hey, good sign that she’s still there!) about her new character, the main differences between The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle, and also why she keeps getting cast as tough girls when she claims to be anything but.
