It’s time to celebrate this spooky Friday the 13th with the birthday of one of our favorite vampires, Candice Accola!

When Candice Accola — now Candice King — made her first big splash, it was in her breakout role on The Vampire Diaries as the perpetually insecure Caroline Forbes.

In her early days, Caroline always felt second best and unloved, and she despaired that she would never be anyone’s first choice. Now, she’s a kick-butt vampire, who doesn’t care whose choice she is. Caroline knows she’s awesome, and she’s not willing to let anyone tell her otherwise.
