Candice Accola

The Vampire Diaries returns from its way-too-long hiatus on Thursday, and we know how much waiting sucks. So, to whet your appetites, we sat down with star Candice Accola, who answered a few fun questions from the fans. Does the former Miley Cyrus backup singer miss performing? What are her upcoming birthday plans? Does she like the Southern culinary staple chicken and waffles? Keep reading to find out!

If you could bring any dead character back to life, who would it be?
Kayla Ewell (Vicki Donovan) has become one of my best friends, so to have her in Atlanta with me would be really cool.

What's the last book you read?
I've been reading a lot of plays, but I'm halfway through The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Do you like chicken and waffles?
I've never had chicken and waffles! I know it's crazy I haven't been to Gladys Knight [and Ron Winan's Chicken and Waffles in Atlanta] or Rosco's in L.A. I like chicken, and I like waffles, so I think marrying the two would be a good idea.

Do you miss singing?
I sing so much in my daily life, whether it's in the shower or in my living room playing terrible guitar. So, I feel like I get enough music in my life and eventually I'll start bringing it out more. But I sing constantly.

What's your favorite Disney movie?
I feel like it should be The Lion King because as a kid I saw it three times in the theater.

Do you have plans for your birthday next month?
I'll be back in Los Angeles. A friend of mine has a clothing line called Show Me Your Mumu, and so we found a print and we're going to sell it on her website. All the profits go to Turn the Corner, which is a foundation that focuses on Lyme disease research and prevention. So, that's what I'm doing for my birthday.

The Vampire Diaries returns with new episodes on Thursday at 8/7c on CW.
