Candice Accola possessed innate talent and an approachable charisma that made her a breakout star on television. Prior to acting onscreen, she launched her career as a recording artist and even sang back-up for tween pop star Miley Cyrus. But it seemed Hollywood had bigger plans for the hardworking and driven Accola. She made her mainstream feature debut in the surprise hit "Juno" (2007), the award winning, slice-of-teen-life movie written by Diablo Cody, and immediately landed roles in independent features and on primetime TV shows. Eventually Accola made her mark on "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ) - a sexy and thrilling series that surpassed expectations that it was merely a "Twilight" (2008) rip-off - as a former bad girl-turned-vampire. Accola's layered and often times moving performance on the hit program won her a loyal fan base while also establishing the actress as an ingénue capable of a multifaceted entertainment career.
