Nina Dobrev Answers Fan Questions

24 Jan

Q: Will Elena keep her word to Elijah?

Nina Dobrev: I think so. Elena will do whatever it takes to keep everyone around her safe. So whether that ends up being keeping a promise or in the spur of the moment, something happens and she has to, in order to keep her friends safe, not keep her promise, then she will do whatever it takes. She’s a very selfless person who, as you can see, is willing to give her life for those around her.

Q: Will Katherine die in the tomb or will she escape?

ND: I don’t know, will she? I will tell you that I am going tomb crazy myself. I’ve been in the same wardrobe for six episodes. Every time I shoot that, they have to actually make my hair dirty and mess it up. I feel dirty and gross and I want to shower. I’m ready to come out of the tomb too. I’m ready to never be in the tomb ever again.

 

 

Q: They actually put dirt in your hair?

ND: Yeah, they do. They put dirt and they tease it. It’s weird because when vampires are desiccating and they don’t have blood, they start to look sickly and look like they’re dying. Usually as actors we want to look our best. You’re on national television! But when the character calls for it, you draw on undereye dark circles. It is cool. I personally love it. I love getting nitty and gritty and doing the opposite. I actually really love that.

Q: How do you like kissing the hottest guys on TV?

ND: Between the two characters on the show, I’ve literally kissed almost everyone in the cast.

Q: Wait, that doesn’t answer the question.

ND: I’m not going to kiss and tell. Everyone always asks me but I never answer.

Q: Who do you think Damon should end up with?

ND: Whoever he wants to be with.

Q: Have you thought about what you’d like to see Elena do after graduation?

ND: Survive.

Q: College maybe?

ND: Yeah, of course, but she hasn’t really been in school much lately so I don’t know how she’s going to graduate. She probably still gets A’s in all of her schoolwork even though she doesn’t go because her aunt is dating her teacher.

Q: Would you like to do a Vampire Diaries movie?

ND: I would like to finish season two of The Vampire Diaries first before I do anything. I’m so overwhelmed right now, in a good way.

Q: Does it get confusing playing both Katherine and Elena?

ND: It’s confusing to be in my head and to do this.  It’s not easy and I think I’m slowly becoming a schizophrenic because of it, but it’s cool. I even forgot the question.  I’m so like confused now.

Q: It was about playing both characters.

ND: About playing both, and there’s a lot going on but I’m loving it and it’s never a dull day on The Vampire Diaries. For me, I’ve always got something to do and it’s pretty awesome.

Q: Do you enjoy playing Katherine or Elena better?

ND: Not better, not one better than the other. They’re both so different. Elena I get to do a lot of emotional scenes. She goes through such a roller coaster ride where as Katherine, I just get to f*** with everyone. Excuse my language but I just get to play around and have fun and be bad and get away with things that all throughout my life I’ve been taught by my parents not to do and now I get paid for it.

Q: Could you see playing a third character at some point?

ND: Hypothetically because Katherine is the first doppelganger that means there was one before her. So I guess we’ll see what happens.

Q: Would you like to do that?

ND: I have my hands very full right now, but I’m sure it would be interesting.

Q: What are your thoughts on the arrival of Klaus? Who should be cast and have you imagined an actor playing him in your head?

ND: I can’t tell you too much because I don’t want to give it away, but Klaus is coming at some point by the end of the season.  He hasn’t been cast yet as far as I know.  We don’t really know that much.  We won’t find out again until it’s actually written on the page, but he’s going to be a big, bad vampire.  I think Sacha Baron Cohen should be cast, do one of his crazy characters with an accent. So Sacha.  Anyone can just pass along the message.

2011 CW Winter TCA Tour

24 Jan

The beautiful NINA DOBREV attended the 2011 CW Winter TCA Tour along with other CW actresses; Candice Accola, Maggie Q, Erica Durance, Aly Michalka and Lyndsy Fonseca.

“It’s not easy, and I think I’m slowly becoming a schizophrenic because of it,” Dobrev said during the CW’s Kick-Ass Women panel at the TCA Press Tour last week. At a cocktail party after the event, she spoke further with a small group of reporters, including Show Tracker, about getting to play two such diametrically opposed characters.

“Elena, I get to do a lot of emotional scenes. She goes through such a roller-coaster ride,” she said. “With Katherine, I just get to [mess] with everyone. I just get to play around and have fun and be bad and get away with things that all throughout my life I’ve been taught by my parents not to do. Now I get paid for it.”
But it might not stop with Elena and Katherine. Could Dobrev be playing a third character at some point? “Hypothetically,” she said. “Because Katherine is the first doppelganger, that means there was one before her. So I guess we’ll what happens.” She’s up for the challenge too even though she’s got her hands “very full right now” with two roles. “I’m sure it would be interesting,” she said.

Until then, she just wants to get out of the tomb, where Katherine has been trapped without blood for several episodes. “I’m going tomb crazy myself,” she said. “I’ve been in the same wardrobe for six episodes. Every time I shoot that, they have to actually make my hair dirty and mess it up.” Real dirt and teasing goes into Dobrev’s hair, as well as drawn-on, under-eye dark circles to make the CW star look like a “desiccating” and “sickly” vampire. “I love getting nitty-gritty and doing the opposite,” Dobrev said, but she’s ready for a change of scenery. “I feel dirty and gross and I want to shower. I’m ready to come out of the tomb too. I’m ready to never be in the tomb ever again.”

Thankfully, she still gets to play in the sun as Elena, who’s focused on a suicide mission right now” to save her friends and family in exchange for her life. But will Elena keep up her end of the deal with Elijah?

“I think so,” Dobrev said. “Elena will do whatever it takes to keep everyone around her safe. So whether that ends up being keeping the promise or, in the spur of the moment, something happens and she has to, in order to keep her friends safe, not keep her promise, then she will do whatever it takes.”

And if Elena does survive, what will happen to her after graduation? Would she like to see college in her future? “Yeah, of course,” she said. “But she hasn’t really been in school much lately, so I don’t know how she’s going to graduate…. Well you know what, she probably still gets As in all of her schoolwork even though she doesn’t go because her aunt is dating her teacher.”

Nina in February Issue of Flare Magazine

28 Dec

NINA DOBREV is Flare Magazine‘s cover girl in the February 2011 Issue.

“I don’t see myself any differently than I did a few years ago,” says 22 year-old Nina Dobrev from the set of Flare Magazine Toronto cover shoot. “Aside from the fact that I’ve moved over nine times and I’m now a bloodsucker,” she adds with a laugh. “It’s been a step by step process and I’ve had the luxury of adjusting to every different phase.”

Dobrev’s journey to TV sensation and cover girl started two years ago, when her Degrassi: The Next Generation character boarded a plane headed for Paris to pursue a career as an international model. It ended up being a case of art imitating reality when in real life, after the episode wrapped, Dobrev packed her bags and left her hometown of Toronto to try her luck in Hollywood. The move paid off in spades. In less than a year, she landed the coveted parts of Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce in The Vampire Diaries.

In addition to starring in the hit vampire series, Dobrev is also set to play Twilight hottie Kellan Lutz’s pregnant wife in the upcoming thriller The Killing Game, opposite Samuel Jackson.

Dobrev can currently be seen in The Vampire Diaries (Thursdays @ 8pm ET/PT on /A\).  For more of my exclusive interview, check out the February issue of FLARE, on newsstands January 10th. Here’s a teaser until then:
Diary she would love to read:
“I would never actually read anyone’s diary, but I would be fascinated to step into Rachel McAdams’s shoes. We’re both from Ontario and studied in Toronto so I’d be interested to know what her process, achievements, and hardships have been throughout the years. She’s a great talent who holds her own opposite names such as Robert Downey Jr., Diane Keaton, Eric Bana, and Harrison Ford.”

Her most memorable day:

?“There have been so many, but most recently, being part of The Emmys was pretty incredible. I documented every moment from the recording of the Bruce Springsteen track “Born To Be” to the rehearsals with Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, and Jane Lynch (to name a few) to the on stage performance/dance we all did on Emmy night. It was so exhilarating and fun.”

The best date:
“It’s a toss up between two: “[In the first], I was supposed to have a date with someone, and at the last minute I had to fly to another city for business. Not only was he extremely understanding of the whole situation, but he surprised me by flying to meet me for dinner later that night. I was shocked at how far (literally) he would go to surprise, and spend time with me. It was very romantic. [In the second], after a long, extremely exhausting, and emotionally draining day on set, I got back home to find my boyfriend in the kitchen making me dinner. He handed me a glass of wine and walked me into the living room where there was a massage table set up. He said ‘You’ve had a rough day, I have a masseuse coming to the house in a few minutes and after you’re finished with your massage dinner will be ready.’ I almost died. That is what I call romantic and thoughtful.”
