We thought we were as excited as we could get about Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries — and then we saw Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) on set. It’s just not a TVD party until our favorite Vampire Barbie breaks out her “serious vampire face,” you know? Check it out!


“#Regram @tytheprince11 Day 1 #tvd Warming up our ‘Serious Vamp’ faces. Cameo by @josekingseco playing ‘set trailer human’ #season6,” Candice captioned the WhoSay photo of production assistant Ty Armstead looking wide-eyed in the foreground as Candice shoots her vamp face at the camera from over his shoulder. In the background, Candice’s fiance, Fray guitarist Joe King, is seemingly clueless to the photo shoot he’s taking part in. Have we mentioned how excited we are to see the TVDers back on set?

Candice will most likely need her serious vampire face in Season 6. Though several months will have passed since the apparent deaths of Bonnie and Damon, that doesn’t mean everything is hunky dory — especially for Caroline, whom executive producer Julie Plec told TV Guide was taking it the hardest, in some ways...

“Caroline is probably someone who will surprise you,” Julie teased about Season 6. “She's taken this loss — in a weird way almost the hardest — so she's going to have to bounce back in her Caroline way. Who she bounces back with and how she does it and how she's living her life is revealed in the first episode. Her journey is where are all her friends and if only she could figure out a way to bring them all back together, get the magic back to Mystic Falls, find a way to bring Damon and Bonnie home than life would be perfect. But it's harder than she thought.” Activate serious vampire face...now!
