Catch the premiere tonight of the CW's The Vampire Diaries! IMTA Alum Zach Roerig stars as Matt in the new dramatic thriller series about teenagers and vampires! Don't be afraid this is a Twilight knock-off, the series is based on the L.J. Smith books which were actually written in the 90's before Twilight ever saw the light of day!
The Vampire Diaries is one of Fall's most hotly anticipated dramas and is getting rave reviews! The all-star cast includes Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder! The Executive Producer is Kevin Williamson, who was the driving force behind Katie Holmes' (another IMTA alum) hit series, Dawson's Creek! Zach plays Matt Donovan, the ex-boyfriend of lead actress Nina Dobrev's character!
Zach competed at the IMTA Convention in Los Angeles in 2003 where his charm, great looks and acting talent impressed the agents and managers attending. Zach signed with the late Thomas Harding Jones and FORD MODELS and was cast on One Life to Live, Reba and MTV's True Life. He is widely known for his portrayal of Casey Hughes on the daytime drama As The World Turns from 2005-2007. Last season, Zach Roerig joined the cast of the hugely popular Friday Night Lights as Cash, a local rodeo star who had eyes for fellow IMTA alum Adrianne Palicki's character, Tyra Collette!
