Nina Dobrev Dishes on Elena as a Vampire, Self-Sacrifice and The Prom

at . Comments

It's senior year. She just got back together with her boyfriend. And... oh... right: she's now an official member of the undead.

Indeed, it will be a busy next few months for Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries, as star Nina Dobrev spilled to me during my time on set this week.

What will her character be like as a vampire? How will it affect her relationships? What was Elena's mindset and motivation when she urged Stefan to leave her in the water on The Vampire Diaries Season 3 finale and rescue Matt instead?

Dobrev dished on all these topics and more in our exclusive sit-down. Watch it now and then check out my chat with Paul Wesley:

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
