Caroline is one hot commodity in Mystic Falls. The blonde beauty has hybrids lining up to buy her bracelets and take her decade dances. When Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Candice Accola at the Elle Women in Music Awards on April 11, we asked her to spill some secrets about the big dance — and exactly why she and Vampire Diaries’ other blonde vamp, Rebekah (Claire Holt), will face off.

Wetpaint Entertainment: We hear that Caroline is going to have a showdown with Rebekah over the decade dance — she wants ‘70s, Rebekah wants ‘20s. Who is going to win and why?
Candice Accola: Yes. So, Rebekah wins on the ‘20s decade dance, but their showdown is one of my favorite scenes that we’ve shot recently. I absolutely adore working with Claire Holt and I think that both of those characters have such a funny ping-pong effect in their dialogue. It’s really fun and there’s going to be a lot more scenes like that.

With the back and forth banter?
Yeah. With their banter.

Why do you think fans want Caroline and Klaus to be together so badly?
I think that the viewers just really like seeing the sensitive side of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) because he’s just so mean and he’s got an accent, so when he has an accent and he’s nice, he’s charming. I kind of keep reminding anytime I’m asked that question that Klaus is technically a bad guy; you know he murders a lot of people and he’s evil. So it’s funny that all of a sudden everyone wants him to be with Caroline now that he’s just dropped a little bit of the bad guy act and trying to play nice.

Now that he’s shown a little bit of his weakness…
I think it’s the accent. I think that’s why viewers want Klaus to be with anyone.

Can you fill us in on the Caroline/Klaus/Tyler love triangle? Who is Caroline going to go to the dance with?
Caroline is going to the dance with Tyler (Michael Trevino). And Klaus will make an appearance and so there will potentially be a nice little interaction between them.

So do you have a special person in your life right now?
I have a lot of special people in my life right now.

She’s a sly one, that Candice.
