Fancast has posted an exclusive interview with Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola. Find out what Caroline will be up to when The Vampire Diaries returns in January.
Who is the right guy for Caroline: Matt or Tyler?
I don’t think there is a right or wrong guy. Caroline, her number one relationship is the one that she has with herself right now. She cares for both people, but for very different reasons. The writers have done such a great job because her relationship and friendship with Tyler is based on experience that Matt could never relate to. It creates a bond for them that there are no words to describe. Her relationship and friendship with Matt is based on her first love. That really takes a hold of your heart when you’re young. It’s like that old sweater that you always want to wear. But, at the same time, there’s things changing in her life that he won’t be able to relate to. She will never be able to be her full on, open self with him. Both of them were lacking what the other one has so there really is no right or wrong choice.
In the preview of the first post-hiatus episode, Caroline laments that everyone is kissing her. Can you give me some hints about what is happening?
The next episode is her figuring out what she wants. Now there’s options. She had to work her butt off to get Matt’s attention. For the first time she’s really occupied with what she wants in her own mind, where these guys are all coming to her. I think she’s a little overwhelmed. It was really funny to read the script. There’s a lot of kissing in this episode.
