I don't mean-in ANYWAY- for this to sound like a 'hate thread' but sometimes Elena's character just annoys me to tears. At the beginning i thought that it was the actress who played her but then Nina started playing Katherine and i was proved wrong as she's amazing as katherine. I just don't know what it is about elena's character. Sometimes i love her... sometimes i hate her. Comments? Does anyone else agree?
I hate the fact that she becomes "the center of the universe", every single character on the show lives/dies for her! What makes her so special? TVD is called “the vampire diaries" isn't it? Not Elena's diary, even though she does keep a journal.
I hate her character made Damon a love sick puppy and turned Stefan a doormat! She will eventually hurt both brothers in the way Katherine did a century and half ago! Writers need to stop differentiating Elena and Kat, cos deep down they are just the same! Not quite, Kat is so much more fun and prettier and with an attitude!
I would not care if she is center of universe as long as she is interesting.
Hell, Buffy was "chosen one" and almost every male(and female) fell in love with her and tried to sleep with her(or succeeded in doing so) .
But the important part was that Buffy felt like a human being. She was this most important thing, but she also had a strong character and personality, not unlike Book-Elena, that kept evolving and growing through seasons. She was most important, yet she managed to not matter at all at times. Her personality, lighter and darker sides, etc - all of that was explored.
Elena lacks that. She lacks personality(last time she had it was the first road trip with damon and the alaric/damon/elena university trip). She lacks SOMETHING to do(it does not matter on if its fighting, researching or sprouting snarky puns or manipulating, just SOMETHING). ALl she has is the love triangle and "caring for people". It feels as if the show was too afraid Elena might overshadow Katherine, that it made EVERY character existing overshadow Elena.
So yeah. Elena needs to get personality, plotlines and something awesome to do next season. If next season is all about Damon searching for his brother while elena sulks in the kitchen i don't know what i will do to this show...
Yes i was thinking the same: omfg, is that actress so horrible? Elena is quite boring and doesnt have anything extra .. and then BOOM, katherine appears as someone totally awesome!!! I srsly dont know that is the point of writers to keep Elena as the way she is. Maybe they think that it is how nowadays normal girls behave and wanna bring us closer to her? Anyway if it s like that, it doesnt work. :D
How can you say that Nina Dobreva have done a bad job acting Elena?
It's not her that makes the characters scripts...
Since you have been promoting Buffy ever since you got here, i've decidet to download some of it:)
Only season 1-7(i dunno how many there is)
it is 146 GB and will take 6½ days:)
And if i turn out to like it, it can keep be busy till the 3rd season of TVD:)
I don't think that they're saying the actress is acting the character badly. It's more that the writer's have given her bad material to act and i agree. The character named Elena is too one dimensional. She needs something to do. Her bro is a budding vamp hunter, her best friends are a witch and a vamp etc, etc. I know she's a dopplewhatever but thats who she is and not what she does. Quite frankly SHE DOES NOTHING
I assume, that Buffy is a human, who learns about vampires, and decide to hunt them?
Or does she knows about vampires already?
OMGQT, wrote "OMG is this actress really so horrrible?"
That is not saying she is a bad actress?
It is not the acters who in charge of what happens on the show. I don't even know how it got into someone, that it is the actors/actresses fault that the character was/is written poorly.
