Orlando native Candice Accola talks to the Orlando Sentinel about the Vampire Diaries, playing Caroline, what to expect in upcoming episodes, and where Matt and Caroline are headed for the rest of the season.
Q. What’s the appeal of playing Caroline?
A. “I loved Caroline from day one of auditioning for the pilot. I loved her vulnerability and her brutal honesty and that’s relatable. She’s trying to make everyone happy and make herself happy and make everything perfect the same way it’s playing out in her head. I think a lot of girls in high school have these thoughts and scenarios in their mind. They hope it works out in the real world, and it never does. As the season has gone on, her perspective is growing. Viewers will see a lot of growth in Caroline.”
Paul Wesley fans will be excited to learn that his angelic mini-series, Fallen, is due out on DVD on May 4th. It will be available as a full set of all three parts, and also split into two parts for those who like to have twice as much Paul on the covers of their DVDs.
Based on the popular books by Thomas E. Sniegoski, “Fallen” centers on Aaron Corbet (Paul Wesley, “The Vampire Diaries,” Extra’s Breakout Star of 2009), a high school student with a promising future. Aaron harbors a secret crush on Vilma Rodriguez (Fernanda Andrade, “CSI: Miami”), a classmate from Brazil, and the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. On his 18th birthday, Aaron has more than unrequited love to occupy his mind when he learns that he is a nephilim — a “Redeemer” — who can return fallen angels to Heaven. Aaron holds the world’s destiny in his hands, as he battles warrior seraphs and ultimately confronts the diabolically proud angel that has tormented his dreams (two-time Emmy-Award winner Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad,” “Malcolm in the Middle”).
This week’s Entertainment Weekly (Angelina Jolie on cover) profiles a handful of upcoming season finales and waaaaay down in the bottom right-hand corner is this nugget from Vampire Diaries’ executive producer Kevin Williamson. It’s not really a blatant spoiler, more an explicit tease that something may be happening before the season officially ends on May 13th.
How about capping off your weekend with Ian Somerhalder in a suit?
