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.”
