EZ: How did you get the role on “The Vampire Diaries”?ND: When I finished “Degrassi,” I decided to fly down for pilot season in L.A., but I didn’t have high expectations. “The Vampire Diaries” was one of the first auditions I went on, and I loved the script. But I was sick for my first audition and they weren’t really sure about me, then I got a movie that was being shot in Canada, so I went home. [“The Vampire Diaries” casting directors] asked me to put myself on tape and they liked what I did, so they flew me back down. It was a long process, and I really had to fight for the role because there were so many girls who wanted to play Elena. I was very lucky, and I still feel like I have the coolest character–or characters–on TV.
JEZ: Which do you enjoy more, being fought over by two hunky vampires or getting to play two different roles?
ND: I love getting to play two roles, because one is such a sweet, nice girl and the other is this crazy, conniving, narcissistic vampire killer. That’s an opportunity that rarely happens on one show. I’ve played nice girls before–Mia Jones of “Degrassi” was a nice girl–but Katherine has an edge to her that I haven’t had a chance to play before, so it’s a challenge that keeps things fresh and exciting.
