When we last caught up with Candice Accola we asked her whether she liked Caroline with Matt (Zach Roerig) or Tyler (Michael Trevino)—read her answer here. So, obviously, we couldn’t let her go without finding out which way she ships when it comes to another notable Mystic Falls triangle.
Of course, we’re talking about Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). You know, the trio that inspires endless debate amongst fans and makes it nearly impossible not to choose a side! Considering the fact that we think being on Team Delena or Stelena is pretty much essential to watching “TVD” (we take our triangles seriously!), we had to find out which pairing Candice was rooting for.
“I don’t know,” she said. “I’m excited to see what happens. I don’t like to choose sides in that…in those things because I feel like there’s so much story that’s untold yet.”
Candice cited some episodes to show that while it may seem like we’ve been besties with these characters forever, there’s still a lot of development to come, and it wouldn’t make sense to pick a side until all those layers really unfold.
“Even though we are in the second season, there’s so much about the characters that we don’t know,” she said. “I mean, it’s just like the flashback episode, within ’The Dinner Party’ episode, you learn so much more about the character of Stefan, and you know this season we’ve seen such a such a softer side of Damon and yet he still can be very, very reckless.”
The girl makes a good point. We were still curious to know whether she had even the slightest preference, but Candice made it clear that she’s not taking sides anytime soon.
“I think it’s going to take a couple more seasons of really getting to know these characters to see, you know, what’s gonna be the better choice because in the land of Mystic Falls, not a lot of time has passed, you know, a lot of the episodes are the following day….in Mystic Falls, everyone is still getting to know each other.”
In other words, we’re gonna need to schedule a follow-up with Candice a couple of seasons from now to get her stance on this one!
