In one season on The Vampire Diairies, Candice Accola’s Caroline has gone from human midnight snack for Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to a powerful, slightly neurotic vampire forging a friendship (and possible romance) with werewolf in waiting Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino). Accola sees the two forming a sort of alliance that is becoming so strong, all things are possible between the two supernatural characters:
There are hints that Tyler and Caroline’s friendship is something more. Are we going to see them develop a romance?
A lot of great romances can grow from friendship. Of course, there’s definitely a possibility of that. Whether or not that’s going to happen, I don’t know. We’re not that much farther ahead of the audience. So I really don’t know. I know that … Caroline’s the only one that knows what Tyler’s been going through, so that friendship isn’t just going to go away. There’s something there. Whether that turns into a romantic relationship or whether it turns into a really beautiful support system for one another, who knows. The fans will just have to stay tuned and watch.
Romance or friendship-wise, do you think they’re doomed in a way since vampires and werewolves are historically enemies?
It’s definitely got a Romeo and Juliet quality to it, the idea of them becoming romantic. Who knows? That didn’t end very well with Romeo and Juliet. [Laughs] Hopefully, it wouldn’t be that same result for Caroline and Tyler. I don’t know. Really, right now, the most prominent thing going on between both of them is finding a safe place for Tyler to transform. It’s really about his transformation right now. It’s not about anything else, which I think is such a wonderful thing because, for Caroline, any involvement with a member of the opposite sex was immediately sexual throughout the first season. It was immediately like crush-worthy. It wasn’t just like a friendship. I think it’s just a lovely way of showing that she as a character has grown within the second season. It’s more than just about a boy I immediately have to have a crush on. It’s a friendship. It’s something a little bit more substantial.
So what is in store for Caroline & Tyler? The last two shows of 2010 on December 2nd and 9th deal with the werewolves and Tyler’s transformation so there should be lots of scenes together. Should we call them Cyler or Taroline or Fockwood? Either way – I like the Romeo and Juliet aspect of these two characters.
Accola has truly been a wonderful surprise in the second season of TVD – and for a show that is consistently raising the bar every week with twists and shockers – that is saying something.
Check out The Vampire Diaries episode 2.10 “The Sacrifice” on Thursday December 2nd on The CW.

Camilla Belle’s latest big screen offering: From Prada to Nada hits theaters this winter. The romantic comedy sees Belle as Nora in the modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. The official synopsis:
“From Prada to Nada” is a new romantic comedy starring Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Kuno Becker and Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza. It’s a whimsical fish-out-of-water story of two spoiled sisters: Nora (Camilla Belle), a law student, and Mary (Alexa Vega), an undergrad party girl, living with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so “90210″ she refuses to admit she is of Mexican decent. When dad suddenly passes away, their posh lives are turned upside down. They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia’s (Adriana Barraza) modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. They are terrified to leave their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever had to take on actual responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, they both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and they learn that the life of PRADA actually means NADA without love, family and community.
Nada opens January 28, 2011. See the trailer below. Read more »

Chloe Moretz attended the 2010 Children’s BAFTA Awards in London on Sunday November 28th. The young actress wore the Chanel dress that Jessica Alba was featured in for one of her two covers on Elle magazine for December 2010. (See all the photos below.)
Moretz has been cast in the film Hick (based on the novel from Andrea Portes) and today she gained a costar: Kirsten Dunst. The story is about 13 year old abandoned by her folks who makes her way to Las Vegas and is taken in by Dunst’s con-artist Glenda.
Moretz’s character Luli is raped in the book (and it is likely to happen in the film as well.) How graphic it will be on screen remains to be seen and this is not new for a young girl to portray a victim of rape. In 2007 Dakota Fanning’s parents and filmmakers received sharp criticism for allowing her to take on Hounddog, where Fanning’s on screen character was also victim of a sexual assault.
Fanning appears well-adjusted and downright happy today which makes it seem as though if enough care is taken, the actress can be young and not leave the film damaged but is it worth the risk? Many actor regardless of their age will say how a character – especially an emotionally scarred one – will live with them long after the movie shoot; the psychic “dust” still clings to them.
So what do you think? Is this a disturbing trend – not just this but the number of assassins and killers that teenage girls are being cast as? Is it ok as long as the actress is well-taken care of emotionally? Will you see this movie?

Jackson Rathbone is always busy with multiple projects. The Twilight actor is starting work on Breaking Dawn, keeping a web diary of his band 100 Monkeys and is starring in a new web series “Aim High” with Aimee Teegarden. The photo above is Rathbone as Nick, a teenage spy posing as an ordinary high schooler:
The actor’s playing Nick Green, a high school student with a side job as an international spy. Nick is one of the US government’s 64 trained teenage operatives and just blew a hit he had on a Russian mercenary named Boris the Bear (Clancy Brown). He’s juggling the ripple effects of that with his secret love for Amanda Miles (“Friday Night Lights’” Aimee Teegarden). The major problem there is that she’s got a jealous boyfriend (Jonathan McDaniel) who just so happens to be the swim team captain.
The full series will released online and as a DVD sometime in 2011.
Jackson is still in high school in this? Well, I do happen to adore him so I will catch this anyway – but I have to admit, I’m getting tired of actors in their late 20s and early 30s playing high school students. I understand when you need an actor who won’t age significantly as a vampire but the rest of the time it’s ridiculous. Is it just me? What do you think?

Taylor Momsen is back in tonight’s new Gossip Girl. Episode 4.10 “Gaslit” is the last episode Jenny will be in through January. Last week it was reported that Momsen has been sidelined by the show for a while. There are conflicting reports as to why – was she that much of a pain to the show or was it just because her storyline dictates her absence – but none the less, this is it for Jenny Humphrey through the January episodes at least.
Here is tonight’s official synopsis:
TATE DONOVAN DIRECTS THE EPISODE: Chuck (Ed Westwick), Serena (Blake Lively), Blair (Leighton Meester), Dan (Penn Badgley), Jenny (Taylor Momsen) and Eric (Connor Paolo) find themselves faced with a crisis when a member of one of their families is hospitalized. Meanwhile, Nate (Chace Crawford) attempts to help his parents, The Captain (guest star Sam Robards) and Anne (guest star Francie Swift), put their complicated past behind them and reconcile. Katie Cassidy guest stars as Juliet. Jessica Szohr, Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle also star.
