Philadelphia (CW Philly) — Prepare to see a new face in The Salvatore School this fall. Alexis Denisof, who is well-known for portraying Wesley Wyndam-Pryce in The WB series Angel, will star in the second season of Legacies.
Denisof will play Professor Vardemus, who’s described as an “urbane British sorcerer… a bit of a dandy [who] wins over the Salvatore students with his steadfast belief in the superiority of their supernatural world.”
Denisof took to Twitter to confirm the casting news and received an outpouring of support from fans.
You thoroughly deserve it.

My favorite actor. Guess I’ll have to start watching Legacies. 💖
