Sharks or a teen witch scorned: Which is more dangerous? Shark Night 3D’s Chris Zylka will soon find out. He’s set to guest on The CW’s new fall drama The Secret Circle as Billy, a young man who broke the heart of Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) – the most volatile of the six Chance Harbor High classmates who, we’ll learn in the Sept. 15 premiere, must bind their newfound magical powers to not only control them but also to protect themselves from a mysterious threat. Naturally, when Billy returns to town, Faye has revenge on her mind. And that should be fun. As exec producer Kevin Williamson described the character to EW earlier this summer, “Faye will be a force to be reckoned with. You’ll love to hate her, and you can’t wait to see what she does next…. Faye has the whole journey of right and wrong. That’s the thing with all of them. There’s good witches and bad witches. It’s that epic story of battling the good and bad inside of you.”
This being a show exec produced by Williamson, Billy will have a few secrets of his own (and, knock on wood, a reason to go shirtless). He’ll also show an interest in Circle member Cassie (Britt Robertson), who’s proving quite the popular new student at school. As we previously reported, Make It or Break It star Zachary Abel will also guest in an episode as a hot jock named Luke who’ll ask Cassie out.
Zylka’s other credits include the TV show 10 Things I Hate About You and the upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man.
