The 27-year-old actress of course stars as Caroline, our favorite fun-loving vampire who sadly just lost her mother to cancer.
Not only is she dealing with this huge loss, but Caroline and Stefan (Paul Wesley) just shared their first kiss after years of friendship and seasons of sexual tension.
Candice gives us the scoop on Caroline’s tribute to her mother, Steroline’s chances of survival, and more. Check it:
The Vampire Diaries airs TONIGHT, February 19 @ 8PM on The CW!
JustJaredJr.com: Hi Candice! So we’ve seen a lot of deaths on this show, but really not that many funerals. What can you tell us about the episode tonight?
Candice Accola: You can expect a lot of tears. If anyone thinks the episode is going to get more cheerful this week, be prepared with a lot of Kleenex because it’s going to be an emotional funeral. And yes, I sing at one point. Caroline pays tribute to her mother and it’s a really really huge moment. You see all the characters really come together and mourn. It’s just sad. And like you said, there’s so much death on the show, but this is just something they couldn’t compete with. It’s not some spell or some vampire disease. It’s a very real thing. Caroline’s mother, Sheriff Forbes, died of cancer and there was nothing anyone could do. So it’s a really sad funeral.

“I’m not here because your mom asked me to look after you,” Stefan told her, adding that he’s there, “Because you’re my friend. Because I know what it’s like to lose a mother. Because when you told me you hated me, that’s pretty much the worst thing I had heard in a long time.”
