Many have speculated that the reason why “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev left the series was her awkwardness with Ian Somerhalder.
However, in a recent interview, the Canadian beauty finally broke her silence.
“I’ve said this before, that we didn’t break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn’t love or friendship,” Nina Dobrev told E! Online .
“I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he’s great and I care about him.
And that didn’t change.
Yes, we’re professional and that’s fine.
We were friends long before we dated and we still are now.” “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev even opted to take a series of wacky photos with her former beau a few days before she officially left the CW series.
The “Let’s Be Cop” actress also commented about Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed’s wedding.
“When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful,” she told US Magazine .
“They look happy and I am happy, and so I don’t see why there should be a problem with that…Of course, we’re on a teen drama show, everyone’s going to look for drama …
I just ignore it.” “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev left the show after playing the lead role of Elena Gilbert for the past six years.
She reportedly wants to “spread her wings” and focus on making films.
To prove she’s serious to take a leap, the “Final Girls” actress relocated from Atlanta, Georgia, where “The Vampire Diaries” is being filmed, to Hollywood, California.
She will be seen for the last time in the season finale episode of “The Vampire Diaries.” In a previously released promo, Elena was seen dying in the arms of Damon Salvatore.
Even if she decided to follow her dream, “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev admitted to ABC News that it would be weird to not be with the cast members anymore.
“I’ve loved working on this show.
It’s been such a crazy, awesome adventure, and I’ve been surrounded by so many people who I consider family,” she said.
“I know this is a new exciting step in the right direction for me, but it’s going to be so strange not to be with them.”
