Chris Wood

‘Diaries’ Thesp Hand-Picked for CW’s show

Julie Plec has made stars out of Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley — and she’s about to introduce another: Wood. After he was cast in the past season of “The Vampire Diaries,” Plec hand-picked the actor to star in “Containment,” her third CW series and an early favorite among execs all through pilot season.

“Chris showed up on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and instantly started blowing everyone’s minds, but my love for him was clinched when Paul Wesley, who is hilariously very sparing with his compliments, texted me after his first day of directing Chris and said, ‘This guy is unbelievably good,’” Plec raves. Wood is no stranger to the CW, as he also recurred on “The Carrie Diaries,” showing off his versatility.

“He’s committed, prepared, delightful, and extremely gifted,” she says. “He’s also excellent at Catch Phrase.”

Don’t feel badly for Goode though. The British thesp will return (in a big way, apparently) to Downton Abbey as Henry Talbot for the PBS phenom’s forthcoming sixth and final season.
