‘The Secret Circle’ star Britt Robertson is the lead star of the new CW show and spoke with the actress about which book from the trilogy was her favorite! Plus she explains why she didnt research witchcraft in preparation to play Cassie.

Britt Robertson chatted with a group of reporters following The Secret Circle TCA panel last Thursday and we spoke with the chatty and friendly actress. “Once I got the part I obviously read the books and got familiar with it,” explains Britt, when asked her if she’d read all of the books. The CW show is based on a trilogy of the same name, penned by Vampire Diaries author L.J. Smith. But Britt says she specifically didn’t learn too much about witchcraft, before playing a witch on the new Fall series. Why is that?

“I didn’t want to do much research on the witchcraft world considering my character is so new to that world,” confesses Britt. ” Learning as my character learns was the best decision for me.”

Had she heard of the series before she was asked to audition? “I didn’t really have any knowledge of the story at all, I mean I knew Kevin’s [Williamson] work with the ‘Scream’ movies, and I love that kind of thing but I had never really seen ‘Vampire Diaries’ up until meeting with him, and then I was like I got to get into ‘The Vampire Diaries’!”

Well Britt, we’d have to say we agree with you!

Are you excited for the CW series that’s being toted as the new Vampire Diaries?
