The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev looks fabulous on the cover of the Atlanta area magazine Jezebel. Dobrev opened up about her role on Degrassi, how much she loves playing Katherine on TVD and enjoying Atlanta:
Degrassi was a great first acting job: “[...]The show taught me a lot about being on set and how to act on camera, because I was very green. I ended up spending four years on “Degrassi,” but because it was a Canadian show made far away from Hollywood, I was able to get into the business more progressively. A lot of people who start acting at an early age lose their sense of reality, but I had time to be a normal kid while at the same time doing this thing I loved.”
Playing evil vamp Katherine rocks: “I’ve played nice girls before–Mia Jones of “Degrassi” was a nice girl–but Katherine has an edge to her that I haven’t had a chance to play before, so it’s a challenge that keeps things fresh and exciting.”
Atlanta area awesomeness: “We’ve been to a lot of places around Atlanta, but still haven’t discovered as much of the city as we’d like to because we film 15-hour days. But when we do go out, I love that there are so many diverse pockets to explore, from Buckhead and Inman Park to Little 5 Points, which has that awesome urban edge.”
