Nina Dobrev: What I'll Be Like As A Vampire On 'TVD'

Elena Vampire Diaries

In a new interview, Nina Dobrev gives us a hint about what her character, Elena, will be fighting for as a vampire on season four of ‘The Vampire Diaries’!

The Vampire Diaries fans were shocked when Elena [SPOILER ALERT] was turned into a vampire and chose Stefan during the season three finale Thursday and hungered for more. Thankfully, now Nina Dobrev, the actress behind the lovable character, revealed tons of details about next season in an in-depth new interview.

*On Elena as a vampire:
“We’re definitely going to see her whole transition into becoming a vampire. We’re not going to skip over it, as we have with others. Becoming a vampire, everything you feel is heightened. . . We know what Elena’s like: She has high morals, she looks out for other people. So what’s Elena going to be like with those things accentuated?”

*On Elena’s relationship with her teen witch best friend, now that she’s a vampire
“Their relationship is probably going to be so strained because of that. Her best friend, the one person she’s been fighting to protect, is now what she’s been fighting against all this time. It’s going to be interesting.”

*On fan reaction to Elena choosing Stefan over Damon
“It does kind of feel like you’re disappointing half the people. But you’re always going to disappoint half the people with this kind of storyline. I think we gave them both what they wanted at some point or another during the season, so it’s not like we shunned them or disregarded their wants.”

*On missing playing a human in addition to her second character, Katherine, who’s a vampire too
“I liked having one human and one vampire, because then I get the best of worlds and I get to do a variety of things. But, then again, it is going to be different for me and it’s going to be challenge. It’s going to be more fun to sort of explore that world.”

Are YOU excited to see season four when it hits the small screen? What do you think of Elena’s transition?

I agree with the comments here. I am so tired of the harsh treatment of Damon especially by Elena…
Enough. I don’t think that I will be as interested in The Vampire Diaries after the season finale. That phone call to Damon was cold and heartless.

Im tired of stefan, hes boring and its always damon looking out for her. damon makes thing way more interesting and his personality is way more intense, what good episodes those would be as her and damon as a couple. Stefan should just go away and return to katherine.

That phone call went waaay beyond harsh. Knowing he was going to die – ALONE, in a storage facility !! I can’t even think about it. Usually during the summer break between seasons I watch lots of D/E vids but this year I just can’t, no vids no re-runs nothing. Not getting the DVD either because of how the season ends. They have to stop dumping on Damon and hurting him at every opportunity. As a fan of Danon/Ian I just can’t watch it anymore.

i think the elena/damon relationship will really pick up in season four. becoming a vampire heightens certain aspects of your personality, maybe it will also heighten how she feels about him?
and even better, julie plec revealed that elena’s memories will come back from events when damon compelled her (most of which were HUGELY IMPORTANT moments).. which will definately affect how she looks at him. if you look back at those forgotten moments they were usually when damon was protecting her or being very selfless with her, things that she will not easily forget (once she remembers them…)

GO DELENA!

I really think that elena’s choice of picking stefan was bad because she never gave damon a chance so i think she should pick damon and see if it works out

“it was not the choice, it was the heartless phone call”
That sums up my feelings about the whole finale…Elena’s “selfless” character lost all credibility after that phone call. He was dying for all they knew…after all the times he saved her, how he was there for her all those times Stefan the “saint” was not, and THOSE were the words she chose to be her last exchange with Damon?
After that exchange, I hope the writers realize that Damon should never ever CHOOSE Elena again!

PS. Julie, having a season with Elena as a human and Damon as her boyfriend would have made for some really exciting episodes. You could have at least done that before you turned Elema into a vamp and had her running back to Stefan.

I’m not sure I will be watching TVD as religiously as I did the past three years. I’m tired of seeing Damon get stepped on and blamed for everything that goes wrong by Elena and Stefan (even if they were some of Elena’s dumb ideas and schemes). Now, next season is going to be made up of Elena adjusting to being a vamp and Stefan trying to protect from Damon and the Originals. Then when she gets in trouble, Julie Plec is going to have Damon come to the rescue. Blah Blah Blah, predictable, with Damon getting hurt again. I think I have had enough.

I hate how in season two Elena kind of lost her mojo, backbone, and it was mostly about the guys. I also can’t believe the CW pulled their forums. I’m always looking for a place to talk about the Vampire Diaries. You know, a nice populated forum, any ideas?

Is there ever going to be a chance for DELENA?
Will she ever chose Damon because they met first!
Will Stephan get back with Kathrine?
Is Tyler dead?
Is Klaus coming back?

Oh, wow! Stereo Stefan. Damon, run for your life. Hope all the fans who pushed for this and wanted it to happen are pleased by getting what they wanted. But guess what? She’ll still be Elena as a vampire. She’ll never be Katherine.

poor elena.. she didn’t even want to be a vampire in the first place.. but i think that she will handle it perfectly well!
i love that she choosen stefan! but poor damon too.. she said to damon “if i had met you first then maybe i had choosen you” and the sad thing, is that she met damon first. but she dont remember! BUT now that she becomes a vampire she will remember that she met damon first!
but i hope that she stays with stefan!

I hope there will be a way for Elena to change back to human um Bonnie.

I still can’t get over Stefan not saving Elena first. Your frantic natural instinct would kick in to save your loved one first regardless of what they had to say. It would be a no brainer. Soooo it will be Stefan feeling sorry for himself next season and Elena thanking him for what he did, ah whatever.

Nina…DE fans are used to being disappointed…..it’s now going on 4 years.
It wasn’t the choice. It was the heartless phone call :(

I’m tired of hearing how Stefan respected her choice. He’s supposed to be in love with her. No one who really loved someone would have just left them like he did. It wasn’t selfless or heroic. It was selfish, because Stefan didn’t want to make her mad. Well, dude, wouldn’t you rather she be mad, then be dead? But, you’re so brave and heroic because you respect her choices. Total BS.

Not to mention if they had all died Damon would have been left to die completely alone!! At least Stefan would have had everyone else. Some days I just hate Elena.

i think she cose him like a coin toss. i also feel that she got back together cause damon compelled her and like she owes him or somthing for sving her life and being the one who lets her chose what she wants. i prefer damon cause he would sacrafice anyone for elena besides his brother which really gets elena and like what rose said stefan will always be good for her but damon changes her aswell. damon is either the best or the worst for her!!! really really epic.

Elena wants a man who is her lap dog who will do everything she tells him to do and lets her call all the shots. That’s not Damon, but it was who she was trying to turn him in. The best thing she did for Damon was choosing Stefan.
