Katherine, Nina Dobrev‘s devious doppelganger character, has been missing from “The Vampire Diaries” for months… but we found her. She appeared on “Conan” on Wednesday night to promote the Season 3 finale.
We’ve spent plenty of time with Miss Dobrev over the years, and we’d definitely venture to say that she’s much more like good-girl Elena than like Katherine — but for Conan O’Brien, she let her sassy, sexy side rule the show. We particularly liked the flirty way she dropped her blazer in Joel McHale’s lap as she shucked it. Get it, girl.
Not to mention the bold yoga move she performed on O’Brien. Yes, we said on O’Brien. Nina showed off her scorpion skills proudly, putting her feet in some dangerous places while McHale looked on in delight.
She didn’t just display her flexibility, though — she also talked about the show and the difficulty of playing Katherine. “You’re drinking this fake blood which is really actually disgusting in real life… it’s corn syrup and a whole bunch of other [stuff],” she says, “But you have to look seductive and sexy, and at the same time scary and mean.” She even popped in her custom vampire fangs to demonstrate the vampire growl… and the super-sexy vampire lisp, which conveniently gets edited out in “Vampire Diaries” post-production.
On the other side of the hill, Nina’s boyfriend and co-star Ian Somerhalder was doing a little bit of sexy promotion of his own, on “Chelsea Lately,” where Chelsea Handler asked him about the persistent “50 Shades of Grey” rumors.
“That would be really cool to make fact,” Ian said. “It’s not actually fiction, it’s just not actually fact now. I’m starting to, and let me tell you something… I play 175-year-old vampire who is in love with an 18 year old, so technically I have a lot of… I’m good with younger women.”
As for whether he’s into the kinky stuff featured in “50 Shades,” Ian said slyly, “I mean, isn’t everybody, in some sense?”
Whew. Check out both clips below. Then go take a cold shower, you perv.
