The Vampire Diaries season four is just a few weeks away from hitting our television screens and, one of the stars of the hit vampire series, Nina Dobrev has been discussing her real life romance with on screen love interest Ian Somerhalder. Nina claims that she had no intention of falling for any of her co stars but that you cannot help who you fall in love with.
Nina explained to Seventeen, "The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said 'Nina: Why she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars.' And then cut to two years later."
She added, “It's funny that I said that, but you know what? It was honestly what I believed at the time. I didn’t want to be dating one of my co-stars — 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.”
You can catch Nina Dobrev and her real life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder, as they reprise their roles as Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore, in the upcoming fourth season of The Vampire Diaries, which is set to return to television screens on October 11.
