Crash PadPost-Production 2017 as Hannah A hopeless romantic who thinks he's found true love with an older woman, only to learn that she's married and that his fling is merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband.
I think everyone’s dream is to be an actress, but I never really thought it was going to happen. Now that it’s happening, it’s incredible. I do a lot of other things, too. I’m not stuck in this little world. I’m aware that we’re in the middle of an economic crisis in the U.S. There’s a lot going on in the world, and I’m really happy and excited about what I have and I don’t take it for granted. I’m pretty lucky.
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.

“I’ve been wanting to cut it for years and years and years. I wanted to cut it midway through shooting [The Vampire Diaries], but I couldn’t because of the character. This is the first time, I realized, since leaving the show that I’m finally on-screen again, so I thought new character, new year, new ‘do.”
Why she asked Riawna to do it:
“Riawna Capri is a very dear friend of mine and she flew to London to cut it. It was a big deal for me—it’s been 15 years since I had a major change. I wanted my best friend to do it.” The emotions she felt when getting the cut:
“I’ve been waiting for this for so long that I was just like, ‘get it out of the way, get it over with, and do it fast.’” Continue Reading

Nina’s really keeping busy lately with promoting xXx:Return of Xander cage and she dished on a few things with Coveteur.com today along with doing a beautiful photoshoot as well for the piece, check out a few things below and view the rest of the article at the Coveteur.com
Her favorite scenes to film:
“The group scenes were probably my favorite. Whenever the whole group’s together we can play off each other. In between the takes, we would make jokes and get to know each other. The cast is so multi-cultural that I personally learned a lot about different places that I didn’t know about—little fun facts. Now I feel like I have homes in so many different countries because we all became very close. I’m welcome in all of their living rooms [laughs] and they’re welcome in mine as well.”
How those prank wars started with Ruby Rose:
“I was bragging about being the best prankster, that I could scare anyone and no one could ever scare me. So she said, ‘Challenge accepted.’ When she said that I immediately, that same day after we wrapped, ran to her trailer and hid behind a cupboard so when she entered, I scared the living bejeebus out of her. That sparked a whole war. She put the head shots of herself in my trailer and I put the crabs in her trailer, because she was crabby with me on set. We kept on going back and forth for a long time. At the end of it, we were both terrified and couldn’t leave our trailers because we thought the other one was plotting something at all times. Which we were.”
On her upcoming film, Flatliners:
“The film is so beloved. Any time I mention it to anybody, everybody knows about it and has fond memories. This new take is sort of a departure from the last one, in that technology has changed so much, and the advancements in medicine—doctors can actually do a lot of things we do in the film. It’s a lot more grounded in reality, and our director, Niels Arden Oplev, who directed the [original] Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, is a stickler for detail. He wanted it to be as real as possible, so we had to go through three weeks of medical training. I had to learn to play the cello and do swim lessons and all these crazy things. It was a blast. I had a great time.”
