Nina Dobrev Dishes on Life After TVD in Stunning harper by Harper’s BAZAAR!
The Vampire Diaries gorgeous, Nina Dobrev, is the new cover star on the latest edition of the famous fashion magazine’s harper by Harper’s BAZAAR. In an interview with the magazine, Nina dishes on life after TVD as well as opens up about leaving the supernatural hit series at the end of season six. Check out a sneak peek of her interview below.
Of course, Dobrev’s most infamous leap into the unknown was her decision in 2015 to leave The Vampire Diaries, sending fans, costars, and network executives into a tailspin. Though it seemed like a surprising choice, Dobrev insists that she never considered staying beyond her six-year contract. “That was the plan from the get-go,” she says. “If anything, the fact that [leaving] terrified me drove me even more. I needed to feel that fear of ‘Oh, my God, what if I never get a job again?’ That just made me want to work five times as hard to make sure that didn’t happen.”
Her roles since have been sparse (xXx: Return of Xander Cage and the upcoming Crash Pad and Departures), but that’s only because “the things I want to do aren’t necessarily the things that are expected of me,” she says. “I don’t want to play a teenager anymore. I want to play adult roles and be challenged and work with great filmmakers and tell incredible stories, and that has meant being really picky.”
