Another girl from Damon's past will show up in present time when "The Vampire Diaries" returns with a new episode after a three-week hiatus. When Stefan mentions Sage to Damon, she appears in a flashback scene as a woman who beats a man in a boxing ring.
Sage will be portrayed by former "Smallville" actress Cassidy Freeman. The character is described as a "ballsy and sexy and dynamic and fun" vampire with ties to the Originals as well as to Damon. It appears that she and the older Salvatore had a good time together a hundred years ago.
Gushing about her character, Freeman said, "She [is] really aware of what being a vampire is and owns it." As for why Sage resurfaces in modern-day Mystic Falls, she teased, "She comes back for good reasons, but she is [out] for herself."
"1912", which will present a backstory between the characters during the year, will air on Thursday, March 15 at 8/7c on The CW.
