Nina Dobrev on Vampire Diaries Season 4: A New Beast

at . Comments

Let any speculation cease: Elena will most definitely transition on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere.

There was really never doubt that the final scene of this month's finale would lead to that development, but Nina Dobrev made it especially clear on The CW Upfront red carpet last Thursday.

"I'm vampire-squared now," the actress told Us Weekly, referring to both Elena and Katherine. "I'm playing two vampires, so my challenge is going to be making them different, as I have thus far. Before it was because one's a vampire one's a human - it was easy - and now I have to try and make Elena a vampire."

Dobrev added that the main struggle for Elena will be holding on to her "humanity." As well as still having to figure out with whom she's meant to be: Stefan or Damon?

"Finding out that she chose Stefan even though she actually met Damon first... there's so much going on and there are so many emotions," Dobrev said. "It's going to be a new beast going into Season 4."

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.
