Ian Nelson, The Hunger Games’ District 3 Tribute will soon be back on our screens. The 17 year old will be playing a younger version of Derek Hale, played as an adult by Tyler Hoechlin, in flashbacks during the new season’s eighth episode, E! Online is reporting.
They had this snippet to say about the character:
But don’t expect to see the same intense and broody Derek we all know and love today as Nelson plays Derek at 15 years old, when he was a popular and charming star athlete; this is Derek before disaster struck his family, turning him into a lone werewolf always in search of a new pack.
It’s always exciting when fandoms collide, isn’t it? Will you be checking Ian out in his new role when Teen Wolf returns on June 3 on MTV?
