Speaking to The Insider, former Secret Circle star Phoebe Tonkin teased her new role on The Vampire Diaries Season 4, saying, “I like that she’s a world traveller, a bit of a tomboy, pretty ballsy and provocative, but not in the way Faye was on The Secret Circle.
“I mean, [Faye] went out to manipulate and see what she could gain from people. Hayley just doesn’t have a filter. She didn’t really have parental figures in her life, and I like that kind of a person.
“I like that she’s tough and tries to keep up with the boys. That’s what I responded to when Julie [Plec, executive producer] first pitched the character to me.”
Hayley will appear in the fourth episode of The Vampire Diaries Season 4, which premiers 11 October 2012 on The CW. The Vampire Diaries Season 3 is available now on DVD priced £26.75 and Blu-ray priced £32.29 from Amazon.co.uk.
