'Vampire Diaries' Scoop: Meet Greta Martin — She's 'Not Someone You Want To Mess With!'

Wed, April 20, 2011 7:27pm EDT by Andy Swift 7 Comments

Greta arrives in town this week — but is she an enemy or an ally? Actress Lisa Tucker tells us what to expect from Greta!

We haven’t heard her name in a few weeks, but Luka’s (Bryton James) Klaus-napped sister Greta is about to make her presence known on The Vampire Diaries. Actress Lisa Tucker makes her Mystic Falls debut on the April 21 episode, titled “Klaus,” and she tells that “Greta isn’t too pleased when she discovers her father and brother both died at the hands of Mystic Falls vampires.” In other words, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) better watch their backs!

“Greta is not someone you want to mess with,” Lisa tells us, though she won’t say whether or not Greta presents herself as a friend or foe to the Salvatore brothers. “A lot of the witches on the show follow tradition very closely, but Greta’s definitely her own witch. She’s very powerful.”

Lisa, who has appeared on everything from American Idol to 90210, says the supernatural element of her Vampire Diaries role is totally new to her — but she loves it.

“I did a lot of practicing in front of the mirror,” she says about preparing to play Greta. “I needed to get my hand motions right and everything.”

(And yes, she says Greta does her fair share of fighting during the season’s final four episodes.)

Regardless of whether Greta ends up being an ally or an enemy, I think it’s safe to say we’ll all enjoy her character. Lisa generally describes Greta as “sassy, cool, smart and a bit of a thrill-seeker.”

Watch an extended preview of tomorrow night’s episode below — then give us your thoughts on Greta!
