Wetpaint caught up wit Candice Accola during her Ford commercial shoot. Check out what Candice had to say about new character Jesse, and a new nemesis! The interview is in two parts.
Between the new guy Jesse, Tyler, and Klaus, Caroline basically has a different guy every day of the week. What can you tell us about Caroline and Jesse?
Caroline and Jesse. Jesse is a boy at college that Caroline and Elena meet and he happens to be very good looking, which is weird for The CW. They’re trying something new this year.
He’s another student at Whitmore College, where the girls are going, and so there’s a budding friendship that a lot of people have speculated on potentially being more than that. But it’s still early in the series.
We hear she has a nemesis in the new professor. Can you talk about that?
Ooh, not really, but that sounds very exciting. We are going to see a new professor, and I know there’s been some people thinking that this professor is anything like Professor Shane. And it’s not. This is a completely different college professor, and we’re going to learn more about him as the season goes on.
It doesn’t sound like he has much in common with Alaric, either.
No, he’s definitely not very similar to Alaric. They both have light-colored hair, but this college professor is nowhere to be seen at the bar. He’s more actually in the classroom.
