Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) is one crazy kid. What did the Vampire Diaries actress and fiancé Joe King recently do because life called? Read on to find out!



“When life calls, sometimes you gotta jump in to the freezing cold water with all your clothes on,” Candice captioned the WhoSay photo of herself and Joe taking a spontaneous plunge off of a dock into what were apparently cold waters. Did we mention Candice is fully clothed? That one has a wild streak in her — just like on-screen counterpart Caroline Forbes. And we love them both for it!

Candice has used the break from filming TVD to spend a lot of time with Joe, who has his own busy schedule as the guitarist for The Fray. In April, just following production break, Candice and Joe traveled to Hawaii where they engaged in plenty of kayaking, surfing, and other forms of fun in the sun. Candice also took the time off from filming to treat her bridal party to a weekend away in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The friends, including TVD co-star Kayla Ewell (Vicki Donovan), wore floral crowns and/or “Bride”/”Bridesmaid” t-shirts and looked to be having a lot of fun.

Though Candice and Joe will tie the knot in 2014, they haven’t revealed the exact date — though we do know that the couple will marry in New Orleans. Last year, Candice told Craig Ferguson: “We both just really love the city. And [Joe]’s always on the road and I’m always traveling, so we figured why not make it a destination for everyone.” We can’t wait!
