Nina Dobrev talks about her time on Vampire Diaries, her co-stars, and her connection to Ian Somerhalder, in an interview with Seventeen Magazine as their upcoming covergirl. Dobrev is currently promoting the return of Vampire Diaries as well as her role in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’.
Even though the last time Dobrev appeared on the cover of Seventeen, she said she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars, she is now dating Vampire Diaries leading man Ian Somerhalder. She says in the interview she remembers saying that and now that it’s two years later, it’s funny she did say that. Dobrev adds, “"I didn't want to be dating one of my costars. My goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can't help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long – which I did for a really, really long time."
She also talks about having girl weekends on the set of ‘Vampire Diaires’, saying, “Girls weekend with the girls has become a big deal," she says. "It's our quality time. It's so much fun to unload and not feel guilty complaining or talking about your insecurities or bonding over things that you thought you were on your own about."
