Candice Accola King Is on ‘Vampire Diaries’ Maternity Leave — But For How Long?
The 28-year-old actress announced she and husband Joe King were expecting back in August 2015 and now it’s time for her to take time away from filming to deliver her first child.
While we might imagine that to mean Caroline will be leaving us until the Season 7 finale, that’s not the case. According to the TV boss, Candice has filmed through Episode 15 and will only be gone, in the grand scheme of things, for a few episodes.
“She actually won’t be gone that long,” the Julie continues. “I think [Episodes] 16 to 20, maybe. Actually, it’s the same contracted amount she’s in every year, it’s just all in one stretch.”
With Caroline being surprisingly pregnant with Alaric Saltzman’s magical twins, not seeing her for a few episodes seems a little strange. If she’s back just in time for the finale, looks like we might see a new set of Gemini twins just in time for the season’s end.
The Vampire Diaries Season 7 midseason premiere airs Friday, January 29, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
