Candice Accola and Zach Roerig of “The Vampire Diaries” spoiled to Zap2it about tonight’s very romantic Matt and Caroline moment. The duo also dished about Michael Trevino’s exit and possible season 2 return. The fabulous Caroline stills are from behind the scenes of tonight’s episode “The House Guest”, which airs on the CW at 8/7c.
“It was such a fun scene to shoot,” Zach says of Candice’s big Mystic Grill performance number. “I’ve got a lot of love for Candice. She’s just incredibly talented, and incredibly fun to work with, so to see her get to work in a different capacity was just a really great day on set. She first came out to Hollywood to be a singer and to launch a music career, so she went into it fearlessly.”
“What better way to say ‘I’m sorry for lying to you all the time’ than to serenade someone?” Zach laughs. “Part of what’s great about Matt and Caroline up to this point is that in the middle of all of the vampire werewolf drama, they manage to have almost a normal young love story. It’s nice for me to get to see some good things happen for Matt.”
Nothing in Mystic Falls is ever “ideal,” though. “What happens in these next couple of episodes is going to make that really difficult,” he says. “The Tyler search party gets put on hold because there are much bigger, more urgent, more dangerous things that we’re dealing with, unfortunately.”
“The Vampire Diaries” writers aren’t shy about killing people off of their show, and since Tyler left town with his heart still in his chest, we’ve got high hopes that he’ll come back eventually. When he does, will he come between Matt and Caroline?
Zach scoffs. “If Tyler comes back, he’ll have much more to deal with than just this love triangle. There will be a whole other can of worms. He’s not going to be a threat to the romance aspect of it, I don’t think,” he says. “Honestly if Matt and Caroline can just get through everything that happens to them in these next couple episodes, they can get through just about anything.”
