Candice King Teases About Klaroline Coming Together on 'The Originals' Final Season

Candice King Teases About Klaroline Coming Together on 'The Originals' Final Season

Candice King has 17 days until she returns as Caroline Forbes on The Originals – and she’s chatting all about it in her cover story with NKD magazine.

The 30-year-old actress opens up about how fans gave Klaroline life and what’s ahead of them on the final season of the show.

Julie Plec always had a very clear idea of what she wanted for Caroline and Klaus together,” she explains. “It wasn’t exactly always in line with what the fans wanted for those characters…she wrote very important moments that she wanted for those characters, but I think she also gave a lot to the fans and what they wanted to see.”

For the final season of The Originals, fans “gave life” to a relationship that they’ve “wanted for so long”.

Candice also admits that her five-episode appearances were originally only supposed to be one.

“When Vampire ended, it was just supposed to be a quick little pop-in to say goodbye to the Caroline and Klaus storyline for the fans,’ she says. “We all felt that it would be really significant and important for anyone who supported – or ‘shipped’ as the kids say – those two together.”

But, it all changed over one dinner.

“One thing led to another, as it usually does with Julie and I. A couple bottles of wine later and I’m in five episodes of the show.”

The Originals returns on Wednesday, April 18th on The CW.

    Hayley is amazing character and great mother. Hayley can’t die. She
    doesn’t deserve this. Hayley Marshall deserves the best ending with Hope. Julie Plec really shouldn’t ruin the TO on it’s last season. If Plec kill off Hayley I will boycott this show and I won’t watch anything else Julie Plec has her hands on.

    Hayley is not only my favorite character, but she is one of the main characters of The Originals and I think it’s super unprofessional to kill one of the amazing characters on The Originals. Hayley is Hopes mom, are they just gonna rip her mom away from her just like they ripped away her dad? Hayley has tried so hard to keep her daughter happy and safe and this is what she gets in return? Hayley deserves so much more happiness and she doesn’t deserve to die. TO is my favorite show but without Hayley I’m done with it.

    Julie Plec seems to have a problem with moms, she constantly kills them in her show. She killed off Katie in Containment, Jo in TVD, and now she want to do the same in The Originals. It’s really disgusting. It looks like that Julie think the only mother who deserve to live is Caroline. It is disgusting that Julie think it is ok to kill off a mother, to make a place for Caroline.

    Julie Plec and the writers swore up and down last season that they are feminist. They killed a ship last season because feminism but in reality the ship was never toxic until that one episode. Julie Plec has killed so many female characters and killed two leading ladies in one episode back in season 3. She is killing the female character who is the reason the show even happened to make a place for Caroline . Julie Plec should be called showruiner

    Hayley Marshall is the first female lead in the TVD/TheOriginals universe who chose morals over love, didn’t crumple under pressure but thrived in it,and wasn’t used as a way to keep the male leads “good” like what was done with Elena/Damon, Caroline/Klaus, Cami/Klaus, Davina/Kol. Feminism is important to the world now and without Hayley it’s just another patriarchical show led and written by women.

    Hayley is a strong character that has been through so much. It is so cruel Julie Plec want to take Hayley away from Hope. Hayley should be alive for her daughters sake. Hayley is definitely by far my favorite character. I won’t watch The Originals if Hayley dies.

  • Gabriella

    The Originals S4 was the best season,and now Julie will ruin the show with Candice and Caroline. Julie Plec made a TVD final atrocious, and now by killing off Hayley The Originals final will be the worst final CW ever had

  • Andre

    Hayley Marshall is the backbone of The Originals .It is not fair to kill her off. Hayley didn’t get the chance to fully know her mother so Hope should be able to get that chance. Hayley fought for years for the safety of her child even before Hope was born.Hayley deserves every right and happiness with the child she gave life to. Hayley should be alive

  • tracy

    The Originals has a very bad habit of killing off it’s female characters. Male series regular has never suffered the same fate. Hayley is such a strong female character: she doesn’t need anyone but herself – all she wants is to protect Hope, by taking her away from the show Plec ruin The Originals.

  • Alexia

    Plec talk a big game about feminism yet she kill one of the strongest females in TO. Hayley is a great character and she is vital to the show. Hayley deserves to be alive with her daughter, Hayley deserves the best ending with Hope.

  • Alice

    Julie Plec thinks she can kill off Hope’s mother because she suddenly
    decided to bring a certain blonde vampire from a deceased show to The Originals. I will not continue to watch a show made by people who
    disrespect the fandom like that. Good luck Julie of pleasing KC bullies
    who insulted you, the actors and the crew
