“O’Bannon says landing Davis was “an added bonus”: “From the beginning, we said, ‘Bring me a Matt Davis type,’ and then we got word that they were going to kill his character on ‘The Vampire Diaries.’ So we got really excited and made a deal very quickly. My daughter is a very big ‘Vampire Diaries’ fan and when I got home, I said, ‘You can’t tell anybody, but guess who I got to be the lead in “Cult”: Matt Davis!’ It was amazing to see her reaction. At first she was so excited: ‘You got Matt Davis!’ And then she was horrified: ‘He’s leaving “The Vampire Diaries”?!’”"
