The Secret Circle: Meet Melissa, the Bad Girl's Best Friend
From everything we're hearing about "The Secret Circle", it sounds like once we get through the first couple of episodes, we can expect shit to be hitting the fan in typical Kevin Williamson fashion. First, though, we have to get to know the characters, and helping in that regard is today's video interview with Jessica Parker Kennedy, who introduces us to Melissa, bad girl Faye's best friend.
Be sure to tune in to The CW next Thursday, September 15th, for the season premiere of "The Secret Circle"!
Episode 1.01 "Pilot" (9/15/11 Air Date; 9:00-10:00 PM):
FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCER KEVIN WILLIAMSON (“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”) COMES A STORY ABOUT A SECRET CIRCLE OF FRIENDS WITH EXTRAORDINARY POWERS — Cassie Blake’s (Britt Robertson, “Life Unexpected”) world is turned upside down after her mother dies in a mysterious accident, forcing Cassie to move in with her loving grandmother Jane (Ashley Crow, “Heroes”) in the small town of Chance Harbor, Washington. While trying to adjust to her new life, Cassie is quickly befriended by Diana Meade (Shelley Hennig, “Days of Our Lives”), a sweet-natured classmate who offers to show her around and introduces her to mean-girl Faye (Phoebe Tonkin, “H2O: Just Add Water”), her sidekick Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy, “50/50,” “Smallville”) and Cassie’s next-door neighbor Nick (Louis Hunter, “Out of the Blue”). Things get complicated when she meets Adam (Thomas Dekker, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Diana’s boyfriend, with whom she feels an instant and powerful connection.
Upon meeting one of her mother’s childhood friends, Dawn Chamberlain (Natasha Henstridge, “Species”), the school principal and Faye’s mother, Cassie begins to wonder why her mother never spoke of her hometown. When strange and dangerous things begin to happen, Cassie’s new friends are forced to tell her their secret – they are all witches, and her arrival will complete the Circle. However, the Circle has not been drawn together again by chance – Diana’s father, Charles Meade (Gale Harold, “Queer as Folk,” “Desperate Housewives”) has plans of his own for the group. Liz Friedlander directed the episode written by Andrew Miller.
