'90210's' Jessica Parker Kennedy Talks 'Secret Circle' Fans, What Would've Happened on the Canceled Show (VIDEO)
Jessica Parker Kennedy, best known for her role on the short-lived but fan-loved CW show, The Secret Circle, is heading to 90210 this fall for a recurring role.
The actress, who will play Megan on the show, will first appear on the fifth season’s fourth episode and is currently set to appear on seven episodes.
How is she feeling so far on 90210? The actress told Celebuzz when she visited our studio last month, “Everybody’s been incredibly welcoming. I brought my mom to set the other day. It’s such a family oriented set, which is really nice.”
She added, “I think that the big difference is when you’re doing something like Secret Circle you’re there every single day. There’s a sense of belonging and tightness there and comfortability that I’m just right now working on on 90210.”
What did The CW star tell us would have happened had Secret Circle continued?
She hints that there could have been a definite possibility for a Melissa and Adam (Thomas Dekker) romance.
“Adam and I definitely had some chemistry there when he was supporting me and making me feel better when I was sort of over being a witch,” she said. “I talked to Andrew Miller about it, who was one of the producers on the show, and he definitely hinted to me if we had a second season that it was very possible that Melissa and Adam were going to someway end up together and be together, which would have been really, really interesting. “
Had the show continued, this development would have been the source of a massive amount of tension between Melissa and fellow circle members Cassie (Britt Robertson) and Diana (Shelley Henning).
“I was the third girl in the circle to possibly hook up with this guy. He’s a hot commodity,” laughed Kennedy, 28.
The actress, who was just recently cast in a new pirate adventure pilot, Black Sails, for Starz, also mentioned her admiration for the Secret Circle fans.
Following the cancellation of the series, fans took to the internet in an effort to save the show.
“The Secret Circle fans are some of the most loyal, incredible, passionate fans that I’ve ever come in contact with. I went to Milton Keynes in England recently to do a signing and I literally had fans crying at the table being like, ‘Why is the show cancelled? Oh my god!,’” she said. “It was just unbelievable the support on Twitter, the letters they’ve written, I love them so much.”

The complete first season of The Secret Circle can be seen on Netflix. The fifth season of 90210 premieres Monday at 8 PM on the CW.
