Nina Dobrev has one of the best jobs in television right now. The Vampire Diaries actress gets to play not only the sweet Elena Gilbert, but in the upcoming season, we will see more of her as the driven and maniacal vamp Katherine Pierce. Dobrev, who is the cover girl for the September issue of Saturday Night Magazine has this take on playing Elena and Katherine:
SNMag: What initially drew you to the show and the character of Elena?
Nina Dobrev: Well, I remember reading it and just being drawn to the fact that she was this average girl who was damaged in many ways and then I did some research and found out that I would probably end up having to play Katherine too, who is the complete opposite. This is one of the rarest, coolest opportunities in television, to play two people on the same medium.
SNMag: What can you tell us about Katherine coming back at the end of the finale last season?
ND: The only thing I can really tell you is that she’s back, and if I told you any more I’d have to kill you or bite you or something. But, yeah, she is back and you can just imagine now that she’s back in action things are just going to get more and more intense. It’s fun to see what she is going to do because she is just so spontaneous and crazy, but I’m just as in the dark as you are because they don’t tell us anything until we get there.
SNMag: Who do you have more fun playing – Elena or Katherine?
ND: I think like anything in life, whatever you’re deprived from or you don’t get to do as often, you end up enjoying more than anything else because it’s like a guilty pleasure. So, whenever I play Katherine, because I do it seldom, I have the most fun playing her.
As the promo for the new season is called ‘The Year of the Kat’ (check the super hot video here) she will get to don Katherine’s clothing more often – more fun for her!
Check out more of her interview at Saturday Night magazine.

Vampire love isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and by the looks of the crowd that turned out to the Hot Topic store, the human cast members of The Vampire Diaries were welcomed to the Town Center Mall in Kennesaw, Georgia. On hand: Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Katerina Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Sara Canning, Matt Davis, Michael Trevino, and Steven R. McQueen were signing autographs and answering fan questions on Saturday afternoon. From the Q&A:
When one fan asked her [Nina Dobrev] who was a better kisser between Stefan and Ian [Damon], she responded as any lady would, “I’m a girl who never kisses and tells.” The competition between Ian’s and Paul Wesley’s fans was almost as intense as Team Edward vs. Team Jacob, but the boys were able to joke about it. Paul said, “Well, Damon’s crazy, and Damon drives Stefan crazy.” To end the quarrel Nina told the crowd she would pick “Defan” (a mixture of Damon and Stefan) their “other” brother over the two vampires to date.
Some of the cast will be stopping at Hot Topic stores in California and New Jersey. Get the list here.

‘One Less Lonely Girl’ singer Justin Bieber has more than just dominating the music charts on his mind. The Canadian born teenager wants to head to college to expand his horizons.
He doesn’t fill his time playing PlayStation or watching videos of Michael Jackson, one of his influences, on his tour bus. Instead Bieber hits the books. “I have a tutor,” he says. “I want to go to college. As Asher Roth says, I think college would be a blast.” And a prospective major? “I’m good at English,” he says. “I like to write.”
Check out what else you didn’t know (he plays four instruments) about Bieber here.

The Vampire Diaries premiered this week on the CW Network and now website The Smoking Gun has uncovered the arrest of the young stars of the new series. On August 22nd, actresses Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Kayla Ewell and Sara Canning were arrested outside Atlanta, Georgia on charges of disorderly conduct as motorists phoned in reporting the group hanging from Rumble Road Bridge.
According to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office report, the actresses were being shot by photographer Tyler Shields, whose digital cameras were inspected by a cop who discovered numerous images showing “the females hanging, sitting and straddling the bridge.” One photo, a deputy noted, “even showed one female being held by her legs by the other females, as if they were trying to throw her over.”
The four were arrested along with another actress, Krystal Vayda and photographer Tyler Shields who was taking photos of the group. Whatever photo shoot this was for, it was poor planning on the part of the photog (or maybe it’s genius publicity!) Shields paid the $4000 fine and all were released.
Nice mugshots – really.
Who watched TVD? I enjoyed it – hopefully they will spend more money on special effects in the next episodes but otherwise it was a pretty good start. Besides, it has Ian Somerhalder in it.
