For someone in her 20s, Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) is damn good at playing a teenage vampire. In order to get into character, the Vampire Diaries star told Orlando Magazine that she just harkens back to her own high school days. 

“In every high school there’s going to be cliques,” says Candice. “Some people are a little more snarky than others. They say one thing to your face and then another thing behind your back. I’ve definitely had experiences with those kinds of girls, and now I’m playing one.”

Candice attended Orlando’s Lake Highland Preparatory School. Though she left before graduation to move to L.A. for singing and acting, the TVD star still finished school with the rest of her class through correspondence.

Not that we’d expect anything less of someone playing the academic achiever Caroline Forbes.
