‘The Vampire Diaries’ Kevin Williamson On Why He Wanted Caroline To Turn

Season two of The Vampire Diaries took a surprising, yet interesting turn when Candice Accola’s character (Caroline Forbes) turns into a vampire.

Executive Producer ‘Kevin Williamson’ told TVGuide.com that they needed a “game-changer” and “if one of these characters had to be a vampire, which one would you want to see?” Williamson wanted to see Caroline. He was interested in showing a different side of the vampire/human relationship than what’s been seen thus far with Stefan and Elena.

Caroline, after becoming a vampire, makes the decision of ending things with human boyfriend Matt (Zach Roerig) to protect him. “She’s the stuck up, little narcissistic mean girl” He says of Caroline “…and she did the right thing. Because she loves him.”

What do you think of the new vampire Caroline? Do you think they made the right decision in turning her? Let us know your thoughts below!

  1. At first, I wasn’t too thrilled with Caroline turning into a Vampire. But as the season has progressed, I think it makes sense. Kevin was right, they did need a game changer. I love the Caroline TV version so much better than in the books, in the books she is a snotty, very unlikeable brat who I didn’t feel any empathy for. But on screen, I love her, she is one of my favorite characters. I just hope they don’t kill her off lol 😉

  2. I love vampire caroline! I liked her in the first season but this year she’s a total scene stealer!!!! fingers crossed she doesn’t get staked!
