News leaked today that French-born, Greek-Italian actor Gilles Marini will guest star in this season of “Teen Wolf” to play a character from the main family’s distant past.
On a flashback episode that takes place in 18th century France, Marini will appear as a French soldier who comes back home to discover that a beast has been terrorizing those close to him.
According to executive producer Jeff Davis, “When Gilles was on set, he was excited to do the story”. Marini’s French upbringing also helped him immerse himself in the character, as Davis said of Marini that, “for his family, the Beast of Gévaudan was their Boogeyman. They would all tell stories about the Beast, so it was a very familiar character to him.”
The episode will also feature another high-profile guest star sure to draw in plenty of soap opera fans, as Lachlan Buchanan from “The Young and the Restless” will also be appearing.
Tune in to the February 23rd episode of “Teen Wolf” on MTV to catch Marini in action.
