Candice Accola has been making her rounds yesterday and today! The Vampire Diaries star appeared on Associated press and PopSugar. Plus check out the interview below with Wetpaint, we’ll add more as they come up!
Wetpaint Entertainment: Klaus is going to New Orleans. Do you see yourself making regular visits to The Originals? Has there been any talk about crossing over?
Candice Accola: Not at this point. There isn’t any crossover talks right now. I mean, I think it would be an absolute blast just because it’s a great group of people to work with. The storyline — that’s really up to the writers where they see everything going. Honestly, I feel like we usually get kind of a breakdown of what’s going in the following season, and this year, for Caroline in particular there’s always, “Well, there’s a potential for door A, door B, or door C.” Where the first couple seasons, I kind of got an understanding of exactly what was going to happen. I know that it would be very fun to go to The Originals and pop over and say, “hello.” A little à la Private Practice kind of creeping over into Grey’s Anatomy, if that’s possible, but there’s no direct plans right now.
On Klaus as a father: Fans might be divided about the Originals baby twist, but Accola is totally on board. “I thought that Klaus finding out that he was going to be a father was really smart,” she says. “That’s the most human thing that can ever be done. It feeds into the storyline of The Originals. They have had such a strong want and need for family and even with Rebekah, she wants to start a family, she wants to have a family, and this is kind of the first time they’re actually going to be able to have that be a reality.”
But will Caroline feel as supportive? Accola says it remains to be seen. “I can say as season 4 comes to a close she doesn’t find out [about the baby],” says Accola. “She doesn’t know why Klaus is gone or why he’s left.”
