MTV has announced the following new cast members as well:
Malese will play Mareth, a young woman who’s both volatile and unpredictable and possesses magical abilities. Sharp, brash and independent to a fault, Mareth gets what she wants on her own terms (and by any means necessary). She’s best known for her recurring roles as Linda Park/Dr. Light on The CW’s The Flash, as Anna in The Vampire Diaries, and as a series regular on the short lived series Star-Crossed. She also recently guest starred in the first season of MTV’s Sweet/Vicious.
