Nina Dobrev is always multi-tasking. The December cover model for Russia’s ElleGirl magazine has a lot on her professional plate.
Playing the roles of Katherine the vampire and her dopplegänger descendant, human Elena on The Vampire Diaries is quite a challenge, but Dobrev is up for it and is “working really hard.”
Along with having twice the scenes, Dobrev has also added an unofficial title to her resume: translator. The actress, who was born in Bulgaria and relocated to Toronto, Canada with her family when she was young, can speak Bulgarian. This came in handy as the writers of the show put Katherine’s origins in her birth country. Dobrev had to tweak her lines a bit, with help from her Mom:
“I called my mom, and she and I translated it,” Dobrev said of the Bulgarian dialogue in the episode titled “Katerina.”
“I think the writers had used an internet translator and it was so funny. All those online translators are never right. So we did it. I translated my own dialogue, but I called my mom just to confirm I was right.”
The 21 year-old actress has been doing a great job playing both parts convincingly, but perhaps she will have a bit of a rest coming up. TVD returns with new episodes on December 2nd and 9th and these seem to (you can never be too sure with the writers on this show!) focus more on the werewolf transformation of Tyler (Michael Trevino.) Love the show, Nina and I can’t wait for new episodes!
