Actress Nina Dobrev Confirms She Is Leaving The Vampire Diaries

Nina-Dobrev2

(PCM) In an incredibly heartfelt Instagram post to fans The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev has revealed that she will be leaving the hit CW series after six seasons.

Dobrev claims that six seasons was exactly how long she saw her character, Elena’s story lasting and graciously thanks fans for their undying support over the years.

Dobrev’s post read as follows:

Dearest TVD Family,
I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there’s still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I’ll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever.
There’s more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you’ll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale (I have given an exclusive interview for the June issue of SELF Magazine that I am excited for you to see!), but until then I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert’s life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her — and to my work family— as I move on to the next chapter of my life. I want to share this goodbye with all of you (this weekend’s pictures were just the beginning). You, the wonderful fandom who gave more love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in LA to audition for ‘that Twilight TV show.’ ;-) I love you all. Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what’s coming, you don’t.
Love, Nina

It definitely sounds like there is still a lot more in-store before we say good-bye to Elena for good and we certainly do not think that Elena will leave us with a few more surprises and quite a bit of drama on the way out!

Fans are devastated by the news of Dobrev’s departure from the series, however having a main character depart from the series is something that has been discussed for quite some time, but chances are fans just did not expect it to be Elena.

The Vampire Diaries Take On Life And Death At Comic Con 2014

KS2_6388

(PCM) Last season, the hit CW series “The Vampire Diaries” left us with quite a bit of a cliffhanger. Fans were beside themselves with emotion as well saw both Damon and Bonnie step into The Light.

We were able to catch up with the cast of “The Vampire Diaries” while out at San Diego Comic Con 2014 to get the inside scoop on season six. The show put on a wonderful presentation in Hall H and of course, after a hilarious intro video, stars Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder entered the stage first, at least proving that we definitely haven’t seen the last of their characters in the world of Mystic Falls.

When we asked actress Kat Graham how she was going to deal with being on the other side she jokingly responded “Well, I’ve been there for quite some time and I’m not paying rent…so…that’s good”.

Graham also comments on the fan reaction to last season’s jaw-dropping finale saying “Sometimes fans create their own backlash, not realizing that we as the actors are totally in on it. I knew it was coming and I wanted to make sure that I had the best reaction possible. There are a lot of discussions that take place before these events occur on the series and it is profusion of all the actors and their art to bring these stories to life.”

Graham says she can not reveal a lot about what is going on with the two characters or their current predicament because that would be giving away some major spoilers but says she doesn’t know if Bonnie is in a good place or a bad place, well she does know, but she really can’t say.

Producer Julie Plec said that the two characters are either in hell or a picinic, to which Graham responded, “It’s definitely not a picnic.”  When speaking about the fans, especially at Comic Con, Graham adds “Comic Con is about the fans and bringing them into your world and creating this world with them. It is exciting for everyone”.

When speaking about the amazing transitions her character of Elena has made from the beginning of the series until now, actress Nina Dobrev tells us ” I don’t even know where I would like to see her go next. I have done so many things and it has been so cool. Julie has back herself into a corner, so good luck, I’m looking forward to seeing how she gets us all out of everything that has happened. She works wonders. Elena is an amazing character and she is like a real person. She has transitioned through so many phases and she is very well-rounded, so I’m incredibly excited to see what Julie is going to have in-store for me next.”

This season will also see the return of Alaric, who learn has been working outside of Mystic Falls as a university instructor. Actor Matt Davis is thrilled to be back saying “The past two years I have been feeling really out of sync and in limbo and I think having Alaric come back it feels like not only he has grown, but I have grown as well. We are starting the season a bit in the future and it will be my favorite season from all that I have been told.”

Alaric has always been a huge support of the Elena throughout the series, we were curious if that relationship will change in the new season. Davis reveals ” Their relationship has actually grown deeper. I think that relationship is set up in the very beginning and will set up what will become a big plot point for the new season.”

Stay tuned for more interviews with the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries from San Diego Comic Con 2014 coming soon.

Fans can still expect to see a ‘Stan The Man’ cameo in next week’s Guardians of the Galaxy, although he had nothing to do with the creation of that particular Marvel franchise.AliLegendsWe visited a Legends panel with cast members Ali Larter (Heroes), Morris Chestnut (American Horror Story, Nurse Jackie) and Tina Majorino (Grey’s Anatomy, True Blood), and executive producers Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24) and David Wilcox (Fringe). (more that conversation next week!)

TNT is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. (more that conversation next week!)

The hashtag plays on the fact that Bean has died in more than 20 acting roles, including the two characters for which he is widely known: Boromir in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Eddard “Ned” Stark in the series Game of Thrones. The hashtag will have its own tumblr page and will be featured on Legends premium items being handed out to Comic-Con attendees.

TV Guide also reported that the CW will run a crossover special with Arrow and The Flash this upcoming season. Earlier reports have indicated that there are no plans to connect the television shows with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
