Even though Nina Dobrev wasn’t shy about showing her fans on Instagram that she’s spending Christmas along her ex-boyfriend Derek Hough, with whom she split because of distance issues, 2014 had something else waiting for her.
Looks like Nina’s new year resolutions didn’t include neither Ian Somerhalder or Derek Hough. Instead, rumours about her dating a former Vampire Diaries co-star arise. She and Nathaniel Buzolic, who used to play Kol in the Vampire Diaries, were spotted together in several places in Sydney, Australia (of which Nathaniel is a native). According to Just Jared, the two were spotted together at Barrio Chino restaurant on January 2nd, where they seemed to be getting cozy and having a great time together.
Do you think the two are good boyfriend/girlfriend material?
Nathaniel Buzolic also posted a picture on Instagram with another two Vampire Diaries co-star couple, Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin.
Nina Dobrev had her debut on the teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation, starting from the sixth and ending on the ninth season (2006-2009). Although I’m totally infatuated by Nina, I have never watched Degrassi, as I don’t think the producers came up with enough of her flouncing around in underwear and/ or skin-tight outfits. Please correct me if I’m wrong!
From 2006 to 2009, she also starred in several movies (more on this in the upcoming posts), but no doubt her breakthrough was in 2009, playing the role of Elena Gilbert in the CW’s supernatural drama, The Vampire Diaries.
The action takes place in Mystic Falls, a town thriving with sexy supernatural beings, where Nina Dobrev a.k.a. Elena Gilbert is the centre of sexiness, most of the narrative revolving around most of the alpha, supernatural and non-supernatural males falling in love with Elena.
The most important love triangle in the series is the one between herself and the two devilishly handsome Salvatore brothers, Stefan Salvatore (played by Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (played by Ian Somerhalder). That being said, from The Vampire Diaries season 1 to the start of season 4, she is in love with the loving, caring Stefan, but due to an unforeseen turn of events she decides that she has greater feelings for Damon, the cockier, psycho-brother than for his kin (please, a moment of silence for Stefan everyone!).
Relationships outside the show? It’s great how all of them have a great friendship outside the show. Check out what Nina has to say about whom is more attractive, Damon or Stefan:
