For the girl who’s played about four hundred characters on ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ it’s tough to say goodbye. So instead, we’re focusing on the best moments that Nina Dobrev had on the show. Also, you can just add on anytime Katherine smirked, because well, it’s amazing.
The Vampire Diaries is about to change a lot. Nina Dobrev is on her way out at the end of season six, but why dwell on it? Nina, 26, has played a ton of amazing characters during her six roles and has pretty much been a serious badass! She said goodbye with a lake party with the cast, so we’re saying goodbye with gifs and videos of our favorite moments of the show.
Nina Dobrev Leaves ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ But First Her Best Moments
It was definitely tough to narrow down best Nina moments. As Julie Plec said in her statement, “we will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.”
Yes, we do too — so here’s a look at some beloved Katherine/Elena moments!
