THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
ETonline: Given how much I know you enjoy mixing things up, is it safe to say you were excited upon finding out this doppelganger twist?
Paul Wesley: [laughs] Oh, just a little. It’s that feeling of being excited and intimidated but I try not to get into my head too much and just have fun with it. But I was thrilled to do something new.
[Hollywood Life] I’ve seen the premiere, and Caroline has a few really emotional scenes, especially with her mom.
[Candice Accola] Yeah, that’s definitely a sweet moment. It’s a proud moment.
On a show like The Vampire Diaries, with so many twists and reveals, it’s hard to keep track of all the drama, so we’re helping you out by giving you a quick recap of what went down at the end of season four. Plus, we’re giving you scoop on what you can expect this season…
Alloy Entertainment: Daniella Pineda Teases The Originals & Reveals Her Mystic Falls Crush
Alloy Entertainment: We know Sophie is a witch, but can you tease anything else about your character?
Daniella Pineda: Out of all the characters on the show, Sophie is by far the most mysterious because there really is no telling who her love interest is or what she has in store.”
To get answers about Cami’s role in the show, Rebekah’s introduction, Elijah’s possible love interest and more, TVLine went to executive producer Michael Narducci.
Caroline Forbes is going to college, and Candice Accola sat down with TVLine to talk about that transition, Caroline’s relationships with Klaus and Tyler, Bonnie’s death, and more.
TVLINE | Back on campus, will Caroline and Elena become embroiled in any supernatural battles of their own?
I think everyone has an idea that the college experience is not going to be all about frat parties, that there’s going to be supernatural goings-on at college — otherwise this would be a really boring series and they would totally have to change the name from Vampire Diaries to College Life or something. [Laughs] There will definitely be supernatural stresses that follow them to college, and they’re really great. We’re also going to meet some new characters, we’re going to learn about more of the mythology and we’re going to really see all of these characters come together.
She also plays a fun word association game, so make sure you read the whole thing!
And over at The Hollywood Reporter, Candice talks more about Caroline’s college experience, including new character Jesse:
Early on, we’re introduced to a new college student, Jesse (Kendrick Sampson), who takes a shine to Caroline. How does he play into her story?
What’s really fun about the girls going to school is we have the opportunity to meet a whole bunch of new characters and Jesse is one of these new characters. He’s a very good-looking gentleman who seems to have taken a liking to Caroline, but Caroline’s really focused on Tyler (Michael Trevino) and is not in any position to want to spend time with [Jesse]. But Elena’s trying to encourage this budding romance, which quite frankly, Caroline does not consider a budding romance at all.
Everyone wants to know what’s going to happen when Caroline Forbes goes to college. Candice Accola has some hints for us, but she tells TV Fanatic that things may not start out as rosy as Caroline (and her fans) might have hoped.
“Caroline is actually really upset [on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere],” the star says. “She wants this perfect college experience, but she keeps waiting for Bonnie to show up and Tyler to show up.”
The good folks over at Alloy Entertainment also ask about college life – including the roommate situation- and there’s an interesting question about what’s going on with Caroline’s course selections.
Alloy Entertainment: Speaking of classes, can you tease anything about Caroline’s interactions with Dr. Wes Maxfield? It seems so odd to picture Caroline sign up for a science lecture course.
Candice Accola: It’s very unlike Caroline to enroll in a biology course, and we’re going to learn more about her decision to do so. It’s definitely not something she’s ever expressed interest in. And this mysterious professor is not just giving her and Elena a hard time over their tests scores and whatnot. He has a personal agenda and some tricks up his sleeve outside of the classroom.
