Matt Lanter Enjoys ‘Star-Crossed’ Comparisons to ‘Vampire Diaries’


90210 alum Matt Lanter has made his return to The CW in new sci-fi series, Star-Crossed.

Matt plays an extraterrestrial teen who falls in love with a human girl when he and six others of his kind are integrated into a suburban high school, leading many fans to call the show “Vampire Diaries with aliens.”

So how does Matt feel about the comparison?

“I can see why people are saying that,” he says. “It has that sci-fi cool element. It’s got a romance triangle I think people are going to dig. But, I keep saying, it’s a mix between Romeo and Juliet with a bit of District 9 mixed with Brown v. the Board of Education.”

Catch a new episode of Star Crossed on Monday night at 8/7c on The CW.
