Pitching in on publicity efforts ahead of her hit show's October 11th season four premiere, Candice Accola scored herself a feature in the Holidays 2012 issue of The STNDRD magazine.
The 25-year-old "Vampire Diaries" damsel looked chic in black, white and gold getup for the fashion forward spread while dishing about everything from life outside of acting to where she sees herself five to ten years down the road.
A few of the highlights from Miss Accola's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The STNDRD!
On what she enjoys when she's not acting:
"I love to be with the people I love. I love to read. I love antique shops... sometimes I think I am an 80 year old woman."
On where she sees herself in 5-10 years:
"That's such a weighted question. I hope I'm working. I hope I'm continuing to challenge myself. I hope I have someone to share my life with and have kids. I hope I am surrounded by a lot of love."
On working on 'Vampire Diaries':
"I grew up loving shows like 'Vampire Diaries'. I'm excited to be a part of a show that I would've loved. The reception the show has received is incredible. We have such a loyal following. When I meet people on the street everyone is so kind. I can't be happier to be a part of this show. I'm so honored to be a part of it... I know that is really cheesy (laughs). But, it's true!"
