Candice King started out her career in music, releasing 'It's Always the Innocent Ones' independently. She gained a spot on Miley Cyrus' world tour, and was later rewarded with a spot in the 3D concert film in 2008 which documented the tour. She made somewhat of a natural detour into acting, with guest appearances in 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'Supernatural'. King was later cast in 'The Vampire Diaries' in 2009, which was highly successful in the US. King and the show itself reached the pinnacle of critical and commercial acclaim. She remains in the role to this day, and briefly ventured into a YouTube dating series which has achieved vast viewing figures.
Candice was born in Texas and went to Lake Highland Preparatory School.
King appeared in an episode of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' in 2013.
Candice has been married to Joe King since 2014.
