Jim Halterman from the Futon Critic dropped in on the “Vampire Diaries” set in Atlanta, Georgia recently to talk in person with cast members Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Candice Accola (Caroline), Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and Zach Roerig (Matt) about Dangerous Laisons as well as what’s to come for our favorite vampires, werewolves, hybrids and the occasional human.
In a recent episode, Klaus saved Caroline’s life after she was bitten by hybrid Tyler (Michael Trevino) and, unexpected or not, fans definitely noticed there was a nice spark between the two. Can we expect more of that in the coming episodes? “You will see Caroline and Klaus interact more,” Accola said, carefully, “but this is also the first time that they’ve ever interacted so… everyone’s like ‘Oooh, there’s spark’ but there was one scene! [laughs] The sparks might just be a reflection off the bracelet, I don’t know.” Joking aside, the actress said that the large number of characters on the show makes moments when they finally come together really pop. “It is an odd thing with these wonderful, wonderful characters developed throughout the show and the series but because there are so many of us on set at once… even Caroline and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) have never been in a scene together, ever! There’s all these different characters whose paths don’t cross… ”
On the potential of the Klaus-Caroline coupling, Morgan said he was surprised with the way fans responded to their first scene together. “I expected a reaction,” he said, “but it’s pretty amazing.” He added that he wanted to watch some of his scenes with Accola again and looked them up on YouTube. “What I found,” he said, “was like pages and pages of ‘Carolaus’… it was kind of amazing how people latched on to that.”
