Vampire Diaries’ Candice Accola on Caroline’s Near-Kiss With Klaus and Tension With Tyler and Hayley — Exclusive
We’re not quite sure what’s going on in a certain photo from Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 7, “My Brother’s Keeper.” Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline (Candice Accola) are inches apart in their finest outfits. Naturally, we had to ask Candice Accola what that was all about when we caught up with the blonde beauty at the TV Guide Magazine Hot List Party. Candice also talked about whether her vampy character will join forces with Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) for their hybrid mission.
There are some interesting photos of Klaus and Caroline in Episode 7 — a near kiss! Does something happen to make her warm up to him? Caroline is starting to see different sides to Klaus. So not necessarily warming up to him, in the sense of the human definition of what it means to warm up to another person. He's very aware of the fact that he has not been a good, nice guy.
If anything, we've learned Caroline is very strong, very smart. She holds a high bar for herself at this point. And she sticks to what she morally believes is right and what she believes is best for the situation. Even if she screws up, she's still doing what she believes is the right thing. So I don't think being with Klaus is anything she could ever picture as being the right thing. But yes, they will be interacting. And she will be seeing different sides to him, as will viewers.
Now that Phoebe Tonkin has joined the show, will we see more tension between Hayley and Caroline? What is it like having her on set?
We will see plenty of tension between Hayley and Caroline. As far as Phoebe is concerned, it's been a joy to have her on set. She's a wonderful actress and a strong woman, and it's always to have new energy in the workplace when we're doing the same thing day in and day out with each other, which creates a nice familiarity. But it's nice to have someone come in and push buttons.
Tyler and Hayley are trying to de-sire-bond hybrids. Will Caroline join their mission?
Caroline's main concern so far in this season is to support Tyler, so she is going to do her best. But as I said before, Caroline has a strong sense of self what she believes is right and the moral truth to the situation, and she won't let that go either.
