Nina Dobrev on Vampire Diaries Nudity: Not Gonna Happen!

at . Comments

In some ways, Vampire Diaries viewers will see a lot more of Nina Dobrev next season. That's because she'll be taking on the dual roles of Elena and Katherine.

In other ways, however, viewers won't ever see more of the actress. That's because she made it clear this week, at the Monte Carlo Television Festival, that she'll never bare it all on screen.

“I’m very content with not being nude on national television - I enjoy True Blood myself and I watch the show but I’m happy that bra and underwear is as stripped down as I can get for the show.”

Don't worry, ladies: Dobrev may never get topless, but the same can't be said for co-stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley.

Dobrev was also asked to compare The Vampire Diaries with True Blood and The Twilight Saga in general. She replied:

“I don’t think that we’re necessarily competitors. We’re all kind of in the same genre... but they are all very different. It’s like apples and oranges. I have friends in all three of the shows that are vampire related, so I’m very happy for all of our successes.”

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
