Nina Dobrev who plays the role of Elena Gilbert in the popular TV series ‘The Viampire Diaries’ was rumored to not appear in the series after their current season. The actress has however responded to the rumors confirming her exit.
She confirmed the sad news in a lengthy letter which she posted on her Instagram page on Monday, April 6. It looks like Nina felt the need to confirm the news since fans were already suspecting the worst.
Rumors of Nina’s exit first started running rampant when the cast posted mysterious photos over the weekend. Two photos, which were deleted and/or edited, had mysterious captions. One read, “lake life in honor of @michael_trevino and @nina_dobrev,” while the other said, “playin a little croquet at the lake #unicornlake #ninawewillmissyou.”
Sadly Nina is not the only star leaving the series at the end of the sixth season as the executive producer, Julie Plec revealed in a statement that Micheal Trevino who plays the character of Tyler Lockwood is also leaving.
The statement read; “Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful. After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold.
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.
Michael [Trevino] has been a beloved member of the Vampire Diaries family since day one. Even though he’s also going to be out in the world exploring new opportunities, we look forward to finding creative ways to make s sure he and his character Tyler Lockwood always remain a part of the show.”
