We don’t usually do celebrity birthdays here, but when it’s the star of The CW’s Vampire Diaries, we have to make an exception. The beautiful Nina Dobrev turns 25 today, in turn, making me feel very, very old. Last night, the actress took home the People’s Choice Award for best onscreen chemistry with her co-star Ian Somerhalder (as seen above). The two had been dating in real life for a while, but have since broken up recently, much to the dismay of fans everywhere.
Dobrev has had quite a year between a hundred episodes of The Vampire Diaries and landing her own Cosmo cover. She had to play three different versions of herself as The Vampire Diaries kept making new copies of her for its plotlines, and has one of the tougher acting gigs on TV as a result. With how long the CW tends to run their shows, and how large a fanbase The Vampire Diaries has, I expect the show will continue on for quite some time, probably about nine or ten seasons in total, if I had to guess.
So once again, a very happy birthday to Nina Dobrev, and we hope that she has a great one.
