So here's the thing I was thinking while watching the last AMAZING episode : this Elena is really starting to get on my nerves.

I LOVE THE SHOW. I LOVE THE BROTHERS (and I think the actors are doing a GREAT job... in general)

I think - and it's only my opinion - that the actress playing Elena does not really conveys a lot of emotion in her acting. That first started when she talked about her dead parents : I never really felt her pain or anger. Then, last night, was the apotheosis of bad acting for me : I never really felt her despair or her love for Damon, at any moment in the episode. While Stefan was really heart-breaking and Damon did, as usual, an amazing job in 'character-deepness', I just felt nothing with this Elena who should have been worried to death about her lover being suicidal...

So is it just me being jalous of this beautiful actress (after all, she gets to act with two hotties ^^) or does somebody else feel this way ?

She's not bad, but I think they could have cast someone better especially considering she is the protagonist and has the most screentime.

You're right, I'm might have been exagerating a bit but this is really a torture for me considering that I LOVE the story and the show but I can't stand the principal actress -_-' (I mean, there's no chance they are going to kill her off at some point ^^')

Anyway, hope I will learn to like her with time...

i must say this though i use to see nina dobrev play elena  as this person with no emotion or thought but what i now realize is that if you look close you can see the emotion. i think nina does a great job shes a hard worker and it comes through her work. if you cant see that then i dont know but i do love her. when she plays katherine its amazing and the way she plays elena is good cause if you cant see the fact that elena is a stronge willed person and who cares about everybody plus its only the first season maybe you will end up likeing her in the season finale but if you still watch it maybe  i mean the producers saw something in her maybe we will all to.

@danielle Thank you, you gave me a little hope here !

What I actually meant is that I feel like I could do what Nina Dobrev does on the show (and God knows I'm not an actress !) but MAYBE I didn't want to look for more 'depth' in her acting. (Hope this is making any sense because english is not my first language ^^').

Anyway, I don't want to compare the show with other ones (because the Vampire Diaries is A GREAT SHOW by itself) but I'm going to do it anyway (lol) : you will have to agree with me that Nina Dobrev doesn't have the imposing presence of Leighton Meester, Sophia Bush or Felicity Huffman for examples.

Again, it's my opinion !

... Yeah, I do feel some stiffness with her sometimes.. but I wouldn't say she was bad.. 

She could just put a bit more of an emotion into it sometimes. As Katherine she's great though!

 

Nina Dobrev doesn't have the imposing presence of Leighton Meester, Sophia Bush or Felicity Huffman for examples.

Very true.

...But then again, remember that Leighton & Sophia started off as intended supporting actors to other bigger characters (i.e. Blake Lively, Hilarie Burton) && they worked their way to the top as the seasons progressed. 

I see Nina doing that too (:

i agree..sophia bush as  brooke was a bad girl and all and then by the end of s1 we see her as the lovliest person on earth because her character evolves..and i think the same with elena.

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.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
