Candice Accola is not only a fan favourite, but reporter one. This past month, the blonde talked to various media about Caroline, her relationship with Matt and Tyler and what’s to come. Continue to read for the best snippets and visit the links above them for more.
Who would you prefer to date: a werewolf or a vamp?
This has nothing to do with who Caroline should date, but if I had to honestly answer that question, it would probably be a werewolf because I’d rather deal with just one night of the month than every single day of high-strung, potential death. You could deal with, like, one day a month he’s going to be an asshole. I think that’s doable.
“What I love about Caroline’s arc this season is that she’s just gained so much perspective, which in turn has made her grow up so much,” Accola says. “Whereas before, throughout Season 1, I feel like Caroline would hold a grudge, [now she knows] she’s not perfect either. On her first night as a vampire she took advantage of a nurse and killed an innocent man. She’s killed and she’s asked to be forgiven, so she has it in her.”

The Vampire Diaries is back on TV tomorrow night! The second season is picking up where it left off — a mysterious Katherine reappearance, Tyler Lockwood dealing with his new, scary self and his dad’s death and is Jeremy a vampire? Is he dead? So many questions which will all be answered tomorrow night! I can tell you this: there is no way you will be disappointed by the season premiere. I adored this show last season as it continued to get better and better while delving deeper into the mythology in Mystic Falls and the residents who cause trouble (human or vampire). I recently had the chance to catch up with the cast and producers at Comic Con. Ian Somerhalder talked about the upcoming season, his teetering humanity that we saw come out last season and how his motivations have changed since the first episode.
What excites you the most about this new season?
The challenges that await. It’s not going to necessarily be the funnest season for Damon. I think he’s going to be challenged a lot where I don’t think he was used to being challenged. There’s some things that wreak more havoc in Mystic Falls than he probably did in season one, and it’s going to be a problem. So those challenges are something to look forward to, because it’s not boring.
Are we going to keep seeing the humanity come out in Damon or is he going to go back to the way he was in the beginning of the season?
Well, I think when he finds out that it wasn’t Elena, I think he’s going to be a little pissed off. [But] probably yeah. I think that’s the only time you ever see it, is when he’s with [Elena]. Nina Dobrev will do that to you. There’s no two ways about it.
The Vampire Diaries was one of my favorites from last season, prominently standing out as one of the best new shows in a crowded pack. Last season ended on a huge cliffhanger and this season brings a lot of surprises. There are supernatural beings and twists and turns that I’m not going to spoil for you. However, I can say that everyone is in for a treat because the premiere is absolutely amazing. And if you haven’t watched the first season, seriously, the show is out on DVD, what are you waiting for? At Comic Con, I spoke with the cast and producers of The Vampire Diaries. Paul Wesley talked about playing the darker side of Stefan, what his motivations are for the upcoming season and how is relationship with his super sexy brother Damon is going to change.
In season 2, how does Damon and Stefans’s relationship change?
From my perspective, for me, I’m broken hearted by my brother because as sociopathic and religious as he is, I still love him, and he knows that as well. I think at this point Stefan — he doesn’t empathize as much or care. He’s like “You know what, I’m not going to deal with this guy.”
What do you think Stefan’s motivations are for season 2?
Elena, Elena, Elena, Elena…he loves her. Also, coming to terms with himself — sort of the transformation. Season 2 is going to be a lot of acceptance for Stefan, being like “this is who I am.” He’s going to do other things. Be jovial. I think it will be nice.
This week (and next!) on The TV Chick might as well be called CW week. There are so many amazing shows premiering soon and I can’t wait. One of those shows is of course one of my favorites from last season, The Vampire Diaries. If you haven’t watched this show about Mystic Falls and supernatural beings, what are you waiting for? The Vampire Diaries is so much more than your quintessential teen drama; it really has it all. It ended on a huge cliffhanger and I can tell you the season premiere will not disappoint. This summer, I attended Comic Con, where I got to talk to the cast of the show. Steven R. McQueen, who plays Jeremy Gilbert (Elena’s brother), talked about what’s coming up this season for Jeremy, losing Anna, and his fragile relationship with all of the people in his life.
What’s coming up for you this season?
There isn’t much I can give away because of the cliffhanger. I can tell you that Jeremy’s pushed around a lot. He’s lost everything that has mattered to him, and has no father figure and has no mother to give him guidance. So he develops a mindset that he’s done being pushed around and starts to push back.
What about his relationship with Elena, that’s still kind of fragile?
I think he starts to view things from a more logical standpoint, rather than acting on emotion. He sees people for what they are. He doesn’t trust anyone. Elena’s the only family he has left besides Aunt Jenna, but she’s a different age and doesn’t quite understand all this natural crazyness that’s going on. So though he doesn’t trust Elena, it’s the only connection to humanity he really has left.
The Vampire Diaries producer Kevin Williamson wants to have a gay character on his show. It probably won’t be Jeremy, Bonnie, Caroline, Matt or Jenna. And it couldn’t be Stefan, Elena or Damon, even though that would be a really big twist, because it would kind of end that whole love triangle thing.
So Williamson thinks he’ll have to bring in a new character to make a gay storyline work.
“It’s one of those things that needs to feel organic and seamless,” Williamson told a group of reporters on July 28 in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he was at The CW’s party for the Television Critics Association press tour. “I don’t want it to be a character that comes in and is a one-off. I want someone to come in and have a reason and a purpose and really push that story forward the way I want to do it, and they’re so important to the story that without them the show won’t happen. That’s what I want.”
Gay teens are an important issue to Williamson outside of show business. He supports GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. “I’m sitting in the wings waiting,” he said. “I’m waiting. Which character can be gay? Which character won’t? Where will it fit in? How can I get the gay character in? I don’t want to sound like I’m a militant about it, like THERE MUST BE A GAY CHARACTER, even though I am. It’s not just that, it’s also diversity. I always feel like I don’t have enough diversity on my show, and that is one of the things I’m very conscientious of, and not just gay characters. Any diversity. In anything, I want everyone represented. I want everybody on the show.”
If there’s one thing we can’t get enough off, it’s season two “Vampire Diaries” scoops. In the last week alone, we’ve given you an exclusive sneak peek into Damon’s reaction when he finds out it’s not Elena he kissed, the dish on the werewolves that will descend upon the town and of course the confirmation that we were all waiting for — Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Katherine will meet.

The last one was a pretty big deal, especially because of the shroud of mystery surrounding the relationship between the two girls. After all, they do look exactly alike and we’ve all wondered why. So, when we chatted with show exec producer Kevin Williamson at Comic-Con, we decided to work our Hollywood Crush magic and get him to give us the goods on whether or not the truth would be revealed in season 2.
“We 100 percent go there,” Kevin said of revealing why Katherine and Elena look so much alike. “It’s not an easy answer, it’s something I think Elena’s going to have to uncover, and I think the answers aren’t exactly what she wants to hear. But 100 percent, she is going to figure out the doppelganger aspect.”
