‘Legacies’: Peyton Alex Smith Joins The CW Drama As Series Regular

Former The Quad star Peyton Alex Smith has signed on a series regular in the CW’s upcoming Legacies, the next chapter of The Vampire Diaries/The Originals trilogy from executive producer/writer Julie Plec.

Legacies tells the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, where 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson, played by Danielle Rose Russell, and others come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses…all under the watchful eye of headmaster Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis).

Smith plays Rafael, a dangerously charismatic and newly-triggered werewolf. With a combination of a pure and loyal heart mixed with a lifetime of abuse and anger, Rafael wants to be a good person but lives in a constant struggle with the emotional demons that have plagued him through a difficult childhood.
