I have added captures of Candice from Thursday’s season finale episode of The Vampire Diaries …. LOVED the final scene between Caroline & Stefan!
We have two new images of Candice at the CW Network Upfronts Party from last night posing with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow actor Wentworth Miller.
Warning this includes some spoilers if you haven’t watched last nights finale of The Vampire Diaries yet!
TV Line spoke with Caroline Dries about the finale and the plans for Season 7!
It’s safe to say, for so many reasons, that nothing will ever be the same after the events of The Vampire Diaries‘ sixth season finale — but what exactly is coming up for the people, both human and supernatural, that Elena left behind?
TVLine spoke with executive producer Caroline Dries immediately after Thursday’s bloody (so many deaths!) and heartbreaking (#GoodbyeElena) hour for the scoop on what’s to come.
TVLINE | Why, in your mind, why was this the perfect end for Elena?
We knew we didn’t want to kill Elena because we do want her to come back one day, maybe in the series finale. And we didn’t want her to walk off into the sunset and get a job somewhere because that felt fake. We thought, “What could she do that proves to her friends and to the viewers who she is as a person?” And of course she would make a sacrifice so her best friend could live out the rest of her life. We thought it was fitting that, at the end of the day, after all these sacrifices made on her behalf, she takes the bullet for her friend and goes out Sleeping Beauty-style.
TVLINE | Were you at all concerned that fans would feel like Damon was choosing Bonnie over Elena?
It was never about that to me because I knew, personally, that Nina had to leave the show. Keeping Elena was never a choice, so it became more about showing Damon’s growth as a character: How did Damon change from Season — asshole, selfish Damon — and how did Elena affect him? This was the best way for that to manifest. He made the selfless choice, for once, which was also kind of his gift to Elena.
TVLINE | I imagine Bonnie will be feeling a tremendous amount of guilt for Elena’s situation?
That was my thought, too, that Bonnie would be feeling really crappy about this, but then we talked in the writers room about it. Bonnie’s so strong coming out of Season 6; she really became a woman this season. For her to go back on all of that didn’t feel like the story we wanted to see. So we gave Elena that speech at the end where she basically said, “Bonnie, let me do this for you.” Bonnie would be wasting it if she sat around feeling guilty, so she’s going to grab the bull by the horns and be awesome Bonnie Bennett. She’ll start up a fun friendship with Damon, a continuation of what they have now, but she’ll kind of become his moral center as he’s trying to figure out who he is without Elena to impress.
TVLINE | From the brief bit we saw of him, Damon was not handling it well. What’s going to be his biggest struggle? Doesn’t he realize that, as long as he’s patient, Elena will eventually come back?
[Laughs] Patient? How boring! Everything he did, every choice he made, was somehow tied to Elena. Now she’s not there looking over his shoulder every five minutes, so he has to figure out who he is without her and what choices he’s OK making. He’s going to have a rough go at it, and he’s going to get dark and be Bad-Damon. But he’s still got Bonnie there to remind him what Elena would do.
TVLINE | Damon obviously still loves Elena, but he’s also a sexual creature, so is there a chance he could take up with someone else? Is that something you’re willing to embrace?
The problem is that, as you said, he is still so madly in love with her. It would feel false for him to meet someone else and have sparks and fall in love. The viewers also wouldn’t embrace it; any girl who comes close to Damon gets clawed at with their opinions, so it’s not something we’re going to jump into as writers right away. He’s got to be with himself for a bit, and his love story will be based back on Stefan.
Vampire Diaries SterolineTVLINE | Speaking of Stefan, I’m glad he finally dropped the L-bomb, but why not go all out and have Caroline say it back?
We always thought it was more natural for Caroline to deal with the grief she’s feeling and not think that her relationship with Stefan is just a Band-Aid to cover up these tragic feelings she’s been enduring. She wants to come at it from a cleaner place, and she mentioned to him in the last episode that she’s a control freak. She’s still coping after her mother’s death and her humanity being off; she’s not feeling like herself. In Season 7, she’s going to try and figure out if she and Stefan can actually do this.
TVLINE | Stefan’s speech about Elena not being his destiny, that she was merely leading him back to his brother, was also a huge moment. Why was that important to get in there?
It was Stefan saying goodbye to Stefan-and-Elena and being thankful for her presence in his life. He took an adult step back and looked at the big picture and said, “That was a huge part of my life, but at the end of the day, this is the good that came out of it. Now, I’m ready to move on [with Caroline].”
Candice spent today in New York City at the Upfronts for the CW in support of her show The Vampire Diaries. Candice looked beautiful in a We Are Kindred’s Olivia Printed Drape Dress in Abstract which she accented with Moonstone and Grey Chalcedony Earrings by Andi Alyse and cream heels.

Just Jared Jr spoke with Candice at the Upfronts today and talked about lots of stuff related to the Vampire Diaries finale!
JustJaredJr.com: What about Caroline and Tyler? Will we see any sort of goodbye scene with them tonight or is there nothing left to say there?
Candice Accola: I think we got a little bit of Caroline and Tyler, and where they stand, in last week’s episode. They really don’t have anything to talk about anymore. Even when I read that scene, I was like, ‘They are being so honest.’ They aren’t friends. They aren’t pretending that they’re cool with each other. Instead, they are trying to awkwardly be friends again and he’s like, ‘No, you don’t get to give me advice. I really liked it. I thought it was a good moment.
JJJ: Both Carolina and Bonnie both had to deal with a lot of stuff this season. Any chance we’ll see more of their friendship next year?
CA: I hope so. I think Caroline and Bonnie will have more time together, I hope that they do. I really don’t know what’s happening in season seven, but there is a little bit of a tease tonight at the end of the finale. Judging by that, I think there’s a chance that all these characters will come together.
JJJ: And we have to talk Damon. Caroline’s never really liked him, but clearly Elena is going somewhere tonight. Will Caroline be sympathetic?
CA: Damon won some major points at Caroline’s mother’s funeral. So there’s potential for these characters to be in a good place. But I don’t think she’ll ever truly trust him.
MTV News spoke with Candice and others at the CW Upfronts today about their favorite scenes with Nina Dobrev who is leaving the Vampire Diaries.
Candice talks to Access Hollywood about filming her final scene with Nina Dobrev and the opportunity to work with her for six years.
Nina Dobrev’s final episode of The Vampire Diaries (6×22, “I’ll Be Thinking of You All The While”) won’t just be a bittersweet event for viewers, but the show’s cast and crew members as well. Kat Graham shared her thoughtful perspective on her co-star’s shocking-yet-understandable decision back in April and Michael Malarkey followed suit. Now, Candice Accola, who plays the lovable Caroline Forbes, is opening up about saying goodbye to the character of Elena Gilbert….and the earnest tears that flowed while shooting her very last scene with the brunette beauty, whom she instantly clicked with when they met in Vancouver in 2009 on the set of the fateful pilot.
“Filming with Kat and Nina and knowing that for the three of us it’d be the last time the we’d be in a scene together, was really emotional,” she stated during an interview with Access Hollywood. “When you are an actor and you book a series, you first hope that it gets picked up. And once it gets picked up, you just hope that it stays on for a while. And then if it does stay on for a while, you hope that you genuinely like what you’re doing and you like the people that you’re with everyday; luckily for us, we got to check all those boxes off!”
Reflecting on the CW show’s humble beginnings — before it became a smash hit and the obsession of fang fans everywhere — and its little nook in Atlanta, Candice revealed she, Nina, and their co-corkers have bonded to the point where they consider each other family — a family she affectionately describes as a “the traveling circus that doesn’t travel anywhere.” ! She adds, “It was an emotional last day, but also really great because it’s been a great run. You know? It’s not emotional because we’re not getting what we want — we all knew that this was coming. Six years is a really long time and it’s been a great journey leading up to this point.”
