Ian and Nina — you two were being ‘very touchy’ in between takes on the set of ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ a source close to the show tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Considering you split up in 2013, after dating for a number of years, I’m happy to hear you’ve remained good friends.
Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev — when you broke up in May 2013, many fans, including myself, were worried your split would affect The Vampire Diaries in one way or another. I feared that you both would find it hard to work with each other and any animosity towards each other would be hard to miss onscreen. Luckily, the opposite is true. Not only are your characters, Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert, involved in a loving relationship with each other, but you both show each other affection in between filming scenes, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. That’s amazing!

I can’t imagine how hard it must be for you, Nina, to watch your ex move on with his life. It was recently confirmed that Ian and your good friend, Nikki Reed, got engaged. That must have been tough to learn, but you seem to be showing a great sense of maturity while on set.
While recently shooting episode 16 of season 6, Nina, you, “walked in and sat next to Ian on the pew. When she sat down, she immediately leaned her head on his shoulder and just sat there for a few minutes until it was time to roll,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
