The Vampire Diaries returns March 15, and Saturday night the entire cast reunited in LA at PaleyFest to chat with fans and preview the upcoming new episode. We chatted with Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, and the rest of the Mystic Falls crew before they hit the stage, and they gave us some interesting insight into Damon, Elena, and Stefan's love triangle as well as what might happen to Klaus — stay tuned for more on PopSugar Rush! Once the panel got moving it was clear they weren't giving away too many spoilers, but the group did deliver some great jokes and stories. Here are the best quotes from the panel!
- "Do you think Klaus has a Match.com profile?" — Wesley to Candice Accola following her description of Caroline and Kalus's relationship

The Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola was among the stars who stepped out for the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala in LA on Saturday night. She revealed some upcoming secrets for her character at the TCA, and on the weekend's red carpet she gushed about how thankful she is to be playing such a kick ass vampire on the hit show.
Candice Accola, who plays Caroline on The Vampire Diaries, made a stop at the Winter TCA to talk about her role on the Buzz reader favorite. She touched on how her character Caroline has transitioned into the life of a new vampire and what's next for her romantically. We talked about all her potential love interests — yes, even Stefan!
Buzz: Were you shocked when you first found out that Caroline was going to be a vampire?
Candice Accola: It had been hinted. I guess I was shocked at the extreme at which she kicked ass so much within that episode too; it wasn't a slow build. And the fact that they gave her the opportunity to catch on and to be very dominant in the sense that she killed people. When the people you work with on a day-to-day basis look at the blood on your face and have to turn away . . . it was pretty graphic. I'm glad that they allowed the character who's so perky and vain to just get dirty.
Buzz: When did you find out?
CA: I was very happy to get a phone call from Kevin [Williamson] before we went back for season two, so I did know that it was going to happen, but things do get brought up and changed. It wasn't until I saw it on the paper that it was like, this is real, this is happening.
Buzz: You and Michael Trevino (Tyler) recently had a very moving scene when Tyler transitioned to a werewolf for the first time.
CA: It was moving just to be in the room. It was a smaller set and a smaller crew and it was shot over two 12- to 14-hour days, and it was really hard to watch. Trevino obviously wasn't wearing very many clothes, the chains he had on in the episode, they were real chains. He was bawling his eyes out. It was really tough to watch. You know, Trevino is a dude, he is a full-on, very masculine man and so to watch him get so vulnerable, it definitely created a very open space in which [I was] able to feel what was going on.

The CW's new hit series The Vampire Diaries had its share of sexy scenes in its first season, and the steamy moments didn't stop with the finale! Candice Accola and Steven R. McQueen were spotted kissing at the Chi Chi Club on Catalina Island, CA, last week. The two looked like they couldn't keep their hands off each other in these exclusive photos from the night. Candice also took the mic to sing some karaoke at the bar El Galleon — her song choice? "Take Another Little Piece Of My Heart" by Dusty Springfield — between their hands-on liplocks. While we'll have to wait until Sept. 9 to find out what happens with Steven's character's cliffhanger, the cast is bringing the heat already. These two may not play famous vampires, but they seem to be happy experts at the face and neck sucking.
