Nina Dobrev in Teen Vogue: Exhausted!

at . Comments

Let's give Nina Dobrev a moment. The Vampire Diaries star is really tired, and for good reason: she's been playing two roles for all of season two.

The actress is featured in the latest issue of Teen Vogue and talks to the magazine about the challenge of portraying Elena and Katherine.

“When I signed on to the show, I didn’t know whether I’d be playing both girls. And while it’s been cool, it’s also exhausting because it’s double the work," Nina says. "You invest so much of your heart and soul and energy into making even one character. It’s like doing two movies at once.”

As for chatter that she's dating Ian Somerhalder, Dobrev puts that talk to rest:

"We expected the rumors. Like, if I wasn’t dating Ian, I’d be dating Paul. A lot of people who work together end up dating, so it wouldn’t be unusual, but I’ve never dated anyone I’ve worked with.”

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.
