The problem is probably more with the character than the actress. Katherine is pretty good, and flashback Katherine in Bulgaria was really nice for that short clip. Most flashback Katherine scenes are good. blaming dobrev for Elena's blandness probably isn't fair.



It'd be like blaming Matt the Monstrosity on the poor actor, whatever his name, who got saddled with the role.

I think she's better as Katherine than Elena. She's a great actress, but as Elena, she falls flat sometimes, especially when she's supposed to look devastated or breaking down.


I think either way, she works well with Ian Somerhalder because I've been seeing more emotion in her performances with him since season 1. Ian works well with everything including the wall, LOL.

The actor is suppose to portray the character as they see it and bring that character to life. She has failed at that with Elena and with Katherine it's not to hard to act like a bitch. Candice did that in her sleep in the 1st half of season 1.

Nina is fine,

Elena is just a fail character.

it's hard to portray the idea of her being like what she is, because she presents inhuman qualities

WEll frankly, Nina dobrev lacks that "trampling anyone in my way, getting what I want and being fiercely dangerous" vibe Elena needs. Things that actresses like Emily VanCamp(Emily, Revenge), K.Cassidy or SMG had. She is good actresss, but nina would not be able to pull off book elena.

i think that she's a terrible actress in TVD, it's not that she doesn't show emotion' it's that she's always being overdramatic and fake. it's getting hard to watch sometimes...

Hate the character, not the actress. She's perfectly fine as Katherine and I'm actually amazed how well she can play two completely different girls. Elena is not boring and blant because of Nina's acting, she's that way because that's exactly what the writers and producers wanted her to be.

I think you are spot on about Nina's acting it's not good at all. just look at the scene when she cried over Bonnie that was awful and anyone who says otherwise i consider to be stans and don't really care about the actress. you want your favorite actress to progres and get better and she won't be able to do that if people continure to lie to her. i support your blog. your honest, and bravery to speak out on the matter. you go girl ....LOL!

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.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
