Candice Accola King, best known for her role as Caroline Forbes in Vampire Diaries, has appeared in other vampire shows like The Originals and Legacies. Despite drama behind the scenes and rumors of pay gaps, Candice remains close to her co-stars, including Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder.
After playing Caroline Forbes for 13 years, Candice announced that she is done with the character and is taking a break from acting.
Candice's love for the vampire genre led her to star in The Originals and Legacies, where she reprised her role as Caroline Forbes. In The Originals, she had a complicated relationship with the main character Klaus. However, she only made a longer appearance in the series finale of Legacies. Candice loved playing a vampire because of the stunts and the make-believe world. After playing Caroline Forbes for 13 years in three separate shows, Candice announced that she was done with the character.
Currently, Candice is taking a break from acting. She started a podcast called "Directionally Challenged" in 2018 with her Vampire Diaries co-star Kayla Ewell. The podcast is still ongoing, but they've adjusted the format to accommodate their busy lives as moms. Candice is not currently dating anyone and is possibly taking time to focus on herself and her children. While she doesn't have any upcoming projects, she remains close with her friends from Vampire Diaries. Her friendships with Nina Dobrev and Kayla Ewell, along with their husbands, provide her with support and positivity during this period.
