"Days of Our Lives" actress Shelley Hennig has been cast as Diana in the CW's "Secret Circle." Earlier today it was announced "Smallville" alum Jessica Parker Kennedy signed on to play coven member Melissa.

Hennig, 24, will play Diana, the leader of the seven-member coven who has been dating Adam ( Thomas Dekker) since childhood. Described as smart, sexy and a natural beauty, Diana immediately befriends new girl Cassie ( Britt Robertson). As in the book series by L.J. Smith from which the TV series is based, Diana will clash with Faye ( Phoebe Tonkin).

The pilot script was written by "The Vampire Diaries" executive producer Kevin Williamson and Andrew Miller. Also executive producing are "Dollhouse" and "TVD's" Sarah Fain and Elizabeth Craft.

That leaves Nick and Doug as the only coven members yet to be cast. Leave your casting suggestions in the comments below, "TSC" fans.
