Yes, you heard that right. It’s chat time again! With season two coming to an end, there’s been hundreds of interviews surfacing. I put them all together in this post for your safety and sanity.

Zap2it: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev on Katherine: ‘It must be a lonely place’

Don’t expect Katherine to stay down for long, though. “When she gets rejected, she wants it even more,” she says. “It’s the want-what-I-can’t-have syndrome. It makes the dynamic with Katherine and Damon a little bit more interesting because all of a sudden he doesn’t want her anymore. It’s kind of like ‘Oh, you don’t want me? I’m going to make you want me.’ It heightens the love triangle even more between those three.”

myFanbase interviews Malese Jow: “I love being hands on with fans and getting them involved.”

11. Anna is a great character and fits perfectly in the whole show. Do you know if there are any plans to keep your character for the second season?

I can’t say… Guess you’ll have to keep watching and see for yourself!

12. Anna tried everything to reunite with her mother. Now that Pearl is out of the tomb Anna seems to notice that is wasn’t for the best. Will she act against her mother’s believes?

I can’t give away plot details, but Anna definitely doesn’t regret getting her mother back. Sure there are differences, but that’s because they’re getting their sea legs back within their relationship, considering lots of time has passed since they’ve been together.

Candice Accola to Kidult: “The finale takes things to a whole new level.”

At the tender age of 22, Candice Accola has already attained a great deal of success. She was signed to a record label at 16, toured the country with Miley Cyrus at 20, and currently stars on the CW’s #1 show, The Vampire Diaries. Despite these achievements, Candice says she’s not immune to insecurity when it comes to matters of the heart. “I’m a girl in her twenties trying to figure it all out,” she says. “I definitely understand vulnerability.” That’s something she and her character, Caroline Forbes, have in common.

Where were you born and raised?

I was born in Houston, Texas and raised in Orlando, Florida.

What were you like in high school?

I always had tons of friends and I considered myself a floater because I never belonged to a particular clique. I was a singer so I always did lots of activities outside of school. Halfway through my junior year, I moved to LA and six months later, I was signed to Maverick.

IESB talks to Candice Accola: “There’s so much that happens in the rest of the season.”

On the hit drama The Vampire Diaries on The CW, Candice Accola makes her debut as a series regular in the role of Caroline Forbes, friend to Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and current girlfriend of Elena’s ex, Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig). But, in the town of Mystic Falls, you don’t have to just navigate being a teenager and growing into adult responsibilities. You have to survive all of the blood-thirsty vampires.

In this exclusive interview with IESB, show star Candice Accola, who has also had a successful music career (she signed a record deal at the age of 16), said that the cast is just as anxious to learn about what’s happening next as the viewers of the successful series are, to the point where the crew has to hide scripts from them. She also promises that things are going to get even crazier, before the explosive season finale.

IESB: What led you to acting? Did you always know you wanted to be a performer?

Candice: I wouldn’t say that I necessarily had the acting bug. I think it would be more accurate to say I had the performing bug. I grew up performing. I started off as a singer. I was eight years old when I went home and told my mom that I was having auditions to form my own girl group, and that was that. I took singing lessons and did a play or two at school. It just all progressed and led me to Los Angeles, which led me to a record deal and doing a record.

While doing that, I was introduced to a manager and agent and started auditioning. And then, I realized how much, not only do I love the art form of acting itself, but more importantly, I love the business. It’s exciting to me. I just really love the film and television business, so I was hooked. The more I auditioned, I slowly started to work more. And then, I had the most incredible opportunity to audition for a show, called The Vampire Diaries, and here I am in Atlanta, where it’s been exactly a year since we started the pilot. We’re all feeling very nostalgic this week.

Orlando Magazine talks to Candice Accola

Candice Accola, a Lake Highland grad, plays a catty high schooler on The Vampire Diaries. By Jay Boyar

When Candice Accola is performing in a scene on The Vampire Diaries—playing high-school student Caroline Forbes—she often thinks about Orlando.

Specifically, the 22-year-old actress thinks back to the days when she was a real-life high-school student at Lake Highland Preparatory School. In fact, she says that reflecting on “the dynamics of the girls” in her old classes helps her to figure out how to play her mean-girl character on the CW television series.

“In every high school there’s going to be cliques,” Accola explains during a recent visit home from Atlanta. “Some people are a little more snarky than others. They say one thing to your face and then another thing behind your back. I’ve definitely had experiences with those kinds of girls, and now I’m playing one.”
