The Secret Circle, which just had Britt Robertson announced as part of the cast, is now in the process of casting to film the pilot, which is in contention for a spot on The CW’s Fall 2011 schedule — and let’s be honest, unless it’s really bad, it’s going to be on there, especially considering the talent involved.
KSiteTV has learned a little bit about the roles they are currently casting for the pilot. I’ve never read the books so I have no idea how different (or alike) these details are.
Cassie Blake – I’m imagining this is the main character. Her mother died in a fire and she’s recently moved into town. She does not know her father. She has a book that says “The Circle” and there are several names written on it. This is probably the role Britt Robertson is playing.
Faye Chamberlain – Her mother is the red-haired Vice Principal of the school. She doesn’t make a very good first impression on Cassie, and apologizes for it.
Dawn Chamberlain – Faye’s mom. Vice-Principal. She knew Cassie’s mother. She has a friend Jane who seems to know about the history of witchcraft in the area.
Diana – She’s one of the first friends Cassie makes. Another neighbor. She hangs out with Faye and they both share secrets. (of course!)
Adam – Cassie tells this character about the book of witchcraft that she has. He tells her to put it away and keep it a secret. He seems very sure of what he’s talking about, and it seems he is one of the Circle.
Nick Armstrong – Cassie just moved into his neighborhood. He talks about her as if she is attractive and sounds like a bit of a peeping Tom.
Other roles are also involved, such as “Sally Waltman,” “Thomas,” and “Melissa.” Fans of the books surely would have a better idea of what’s going on, but what we’re hearing sounds very good.
