Jan 21st: Nina Dobrev on the Challenges of Playing Good and Evil

Webby | Categories: News | Comment

The Vampire Diaries’ star, Nina Dobrev talks about the challenges of tackling the dual roles of good Elena and evil Katherine.  Dobrev also thinks there’s a possibility of playing a third character!

Nina Dobrev is going a little crazy. The actress plays the dual roles of sweet, innocent Elena and evil, naughty vampire Katherine on the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries,” which finally will return Jan. 27 with a new episode. It’s a challenging job that at one point this season called for Dobrev to play opposite herself during a tense heart-to-heart between Elena and Katherine, as well as play Katherine during her human days in 1400s Bulgaria, Katherine masquerading as a Brit and Katherine as a newly made vampire all in one episode.

“It’s not easy, and I think I’m slowly becoming a schizophrenic because of it,” Dobrev said during the CW’s Kick-Ass Women panel at the TCA Press Tour last week. At a cocktail party after the event, she spoke further with a small group of reporters, including Show Tracker, about getting to play two such diametrically opposed characters.
