Nina Dobrev’s Top 5 Best Performances in The Vampire Diaries

Mar 10 2017
Category: Articles ,Nina News ,Vampire Diaries       Comments: Comments Off on Nina Dobrev’s Top 5 Best Performances in The Vampire Diaries

In celebration of the final ever episode of The Vampire Diaries on March 10th 2017; I decided to write my own opinion of Nina’s top 5 best performances in The Vampire Diaries, although it is important to appreciate that all of Nina’s performances in each of her appearances of The Vampire Diaries are all amazing for one reason or another such as dialogue delivery, expression or multiple characters.

Note: This article contains mild spoilers for five episodes of The Vampire Diaries.

5. Season 1: Episode 6 – Lost Girls

Elena puts all of the clues together from recent events that have taken place since she met Stefan; deciding the best approach is to angrily confront him at the Salvatore Boarding House by demanding to know what is happening and who exactly he is. This is a really emotionally charged scene as Elena has serious suspicions that Stefan is not all that she thought he was, especially after having a conversation in the previous episode with a man who claimed to have known him a long time ago when he looked exactly the same. This was the definitive first moment that convinced me that The Vampire Diaries was absolutely not just going to be any other teen horror show, but something much more ambitious and story driven.

4. Season 2: Episode 1 – The Return

The Return was on an equal par of pacing and plot twists with how the first season ended with all of the chaos being focused on the actions and reactions of Katherine Pierce and Elena Gilbert respectively. Katherine’s first meeting with Bonnie, followed by Katherine’s and Elena’s scenes with both Stefan and Damon were certainly important to shaping everything from that episode onwards and provided not just season 2, but every episode since with a consistent momentum and genuine progression in such contexts as allies, enemies and relationships within the story driven narrative.

3. Season 2: Episode 7 – Masquerade

Nina’s performance as Katherine is superb as she showcases Katherine’s ruthlessness in such actions as complimenting an innocent girl’s necklace who believes Katherine is Elena; only to use untwisting her necklace as an excuse to stand behind her so she could progressively kill her in stages and in the process sending a disturbing message to a shocked onlooking Stefan that she wants the moonstone sooner rather than later. Katherine fights Stefan and Damon in a 2 vs. 1 battle with real physicality, while any wounds they inflict on her hurt Elena with Nina’s performance as both characters showing her range once more between action film style scenes in Katherine’s fight scene and Elena’s pain etched across her face as wounds are inflicted.

2. Season 2: Episode 9 – Katerina

Katherine has flashbacks to her origins as far back as 1490 as it is revealed that Katerina was banished from her native Bulgaria to England after having a baby at a time when she was not married with her father not even allowing her to hold her baby daughter as Katerina’s mother attempts to comfort a clearly distressed and emotional Katerina; as her father takes her baby away for adoption. When in England, Katerina meets Klaus and Elijah without knowing anything to do with vampires, doppelgangers or how her family line of doppelgangers connects with Klaus’ curse. Upon her discovery, Katerina makes a run for it, but shows her true survival instinct and cat-like reactions by turning herself into a vampire to escape the group who are looking for her and returns to her family home in Bulgaria in 1492 only to find that Klaus has murdered her entire family with extreme brutality. This was such an eye opening scene as it proves that Katerina who was once playful yet harmless had no-one else left in the world to bring her back from the edge after her family had been slaughtered and needed to turn off her humanity switch to overcome what her life had become. Nina successfully portrays Elena Gilbert in the modern day, a decaying Katherine who has been starved of blood since the masquerade, Katerina as a Bulgarian in 1490 and the development of her English accent after being banished with many important scenes taking place in which Nina is effectively talking to herself as Elena Gilbert in conversation with the modern day Katherine Pierce. Managing that many characters, accents and mannerisms is all supremely impressive!

1. Season 4: Episode 15 – Stand By Me

If ever a casting director or any major personnel involved with casting for a film or any dramatic role needed a highlight reel to showcase Nina’s range as an actress; this would be the scene to steal the show. Nina provides a world class performance in which Elena Gilbert suddenly realises that Jeremy is dead and that he is not coming back after holding onto the hope that he would be resurrected from wearing the ring which usually protects from death at the hands of the supernatural. After realising that her brother is not coming back, she paces back and forth thinking about funeral plans and the cover story for Jeremy’s death; resulting in a major breakdown in which a huge amount of grieving and emotion spills to the surface. Elena starts pouring gasoline on everything as she tells her friends that she has no family left and how everything in her family home reminds her of all the family she has sadly lost as the lit match burns her finger and almost ignites. Elena falls to her knees, tears streaming down her face, begging her friends to make her pain stop. The scene has even reached over 1.7 million views on YouTube. Now that is saying something for its true emotion and quality of acting.


Vampire Diaries prepares for It’s Final Bow, Elena Gilbert’s Crying…

Category: Articles ,Vampire Diaries       Comments: Comments Off on Vampire Diaries prepares for It’s Final Bow, Elena Gilbert’s Crying…

ELENA GILBERT’S CRYING. Standing in the Mystic Falls cemetery where she’s said many goodbyes — and even a few hellos — Elena’s surrounded by everyone she loves. Well, almost everyone. One person is missing. Did we forget to mention that this is a funeral?

It’s a sunny January day in Atlanta as the Vampire Diaries cast films its last group scene in the woods. In between takes, there’s laughter and excited whispers about who’s in town for the upcoming wrap party, but when showrunner Julie Plec, the director of the show’s final hour, calls “Action,” an emotional fog sets in. This is a goodbye — and it’s a big one. “We wanted to go big, emotionally, with the action, and with the spectacular of it,” says Plec, who co-wrote the episode with co-creator Kevin Williamson. “We were absolutely feeling epic.”

When The Vampire Diaries premiered on The CW in 2009, it found itself smack in the middle of the vampire craze. With the success of both Twilight and True Blood, this was network television’s chance to see if fans still thirsted for blood, and when the Vampire Diaries pilot attracted the largest audience of any series premiere in CW history at that time, all signs pointed to yes. “I remember being in Vancouver with Ian [Somerhalder],” Zach Roerig, who plays Matt, says of filming the pilot. “In the hair and makeup trailer, Ian’s like, ‘Hey, kid, get ready for the ride of your life.’” Somerhalder adds: “Twilight was very much the zeitgeist of pop culture. There was just that sense that the market desired this genre. This material was going to work.” Continue Reading at EW


Nina Dobrev Covers Prestige Hong Kong Magazine

Category: Articles ,Gallery ,Interviews ,Magazines       Comments: Comments Off on Nina Dobrev Covers Prestige Hong Kong Magazine

Nina Dobrev is featured on the cover of the February 2017 issue of Prestige Hong Kong Magazine. The issue’s cover story, Nina talks about filming xXx: The Return of Xander and promoting the film around the world. She shares how she felt returning to her hometown od Toronto to film both xXx and the upcoming film, Flatliners, which debuts in September. Nina also dishes on leaving The Vampire Diaries, living in L.A. and much more. Here’s a sneak peek,

What was it like going back? Did it feel like you were no longer a hometown girl?
I was more of a hometown girl compared to the rest of the cast. But I definitely feel that in the 10 years that I’ve lived abroad the city has changed immensely, and going to the city as an adult and being able to drink and go out and stuff is a different experience. When I was younger and just getting into college I really wasn’t in that world. Now there are so many restaurants that are amazing and so many lounges and rooftops and places you can explore. The city has gentrified and grown in such a beautiful way. I can safely say that I got to discover the city in a new way almost as though it was the first time. But I did know a few places that the others didn’t that I got to take them to. So I did play tour guide a little bit.

Do you miss hanging out with vampires?
[Laughs.] I miss my family 100 percent. You spend six years with a group of people – the crew, the cast, everybody involved. They really, really did become my family and I miss a lot of those people.

It must have been really hard to walk away from Vampire Diaries.
I don’t know if I would have the opportunities that I have now if I hadn’t done the show. I’m eternally grateful. It was such a great stepping stone and hopefully it will lead to even more amazing
things. I’ve been very lucky so far. I’ve been very fortunate with the show and the movies and I can’t wait to see what will happen next.

We’ll start with the bad news: Nina Dobrev is no longer your long-haired source of beach wave inspiration. The good news? You’re about to be running to your hairstylist for an entirely new look. Because after years of sporting her enviable long, brown, perfectly-curled locks, the star has just made one of her most major hair moves yet, revealing (drumroll) a bob at the xXx: Return of Xander Cage premiere in London.

The star’s longtime hairstylist Riawna Capri tells PeopleStyle of the short, choppy cut, “Nina has been itching to cut her hair off for years, even before the big trend started. It’s 2017, new year, her birthday is Jan 9, so we did a birthday chop!” Read More at People!

How do you feel about Nina’s new do? Do you love it? I personally think it looks amazing on her.

So our hope for a reunion isn’t that naive??

Despite any awkwardness at the upfronts, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are still very much friends, according to a close source.

The Vampire Diaries co-stars recently split after three years of romance, but this insider swears:

“There’s no bad blood between them. There was no other person involved or any big fight. They still talk daily. This wasn’t something out of the blue.”

Hmm… it ‘wasn’t something out of the blue.’ Source

The Vampire Diaries Exclusive First Look: A New City and a New ‘Do for Elena!

Category: Articles ,Gallery ,Vampire Diaries       Comments: 9

Because The Night

The Vampire Diaries’ Elena Gilbert has a new attitude and a new hairstyle to go along with it. In the upcoming episode “Because the Night,” Damon (Ian Somerhalder) takes Elena (Nina Dobrev) on an adventure to New York City in an effort to get her mind off of recent events (RIP, Jeremy!). Judging from our exclusive first look from the episode, it appears that Elena has gotten a new look on her trip by adding some red streaks and stylish new waves to her tresses.
But perhaps more important than the new ‘do is the big fat smile on her face. Has alone time with Damon positively affected the newly dark (and emotionless) vampire? Continue Reading at TV Guide
