You all know how much I adore Nina Dobrev, but with her characters making out with every hot guy on “The Vampire Diaries,” our friendship may become a little bit strained. What can I say? I’m a jealous person.
“You just wait!” she tells me at the 2010 Scream Awards. “You haven’t even seen. I don’t want to give anything away, but if you thought the makeout scene with Mason in the car was something worthy of not talking to me anymore, you just wait.”
At New York Comic-Con, “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer Kevin Williamson told Zap2it that the show would be taking its biggest flashback ever, to 1492 Bulgaria. When I chatted with Bulgarian-born Dobrev, I asked her if she’d had any pull as to just where Katherine originated.
“I didn’t have anything to do with it,” she says. “I didn’t choose it or tell them to do that, but I think they were inspired by the fact that I’m Bulgarian. So, we’re going to play a little bit. It’s going to be really fun. You guys are in for a treat, I’m excited.”
Dobrev has been working double duty this season as both Elena and Katherine. She was in nearly every scene of “Memory Lane,” but she’s not complaining about the long hours. Does she even need sleep? “I’m a vampire, no,” she laughs. “It’s a lot of hard work. It’s really awesome, and I’m one of the luckiest people I know. It’s a lot of hard work, long hours… we shoot a lot of nights, and dual characters are pulling double duty.”
