Nina Dobrev may have left The Vampire Diaries, but she is doing just fine! I would actually say she's doing more than fine, as she's returned back to her home country in Vancouver, Canada, and is already working away on a film called Crash Pad.
The Vampire Diaries have decided to continue without the star, and co-star Ian Somerhalder had intense reservations about, which he discussed with Variety:
“I personally think everyone thought it was going to be a huge departure after Elena (Dobrev) was gone. And I was one of those people. I thought it was going to be a huge departure for the typical formula of our show. By virtue of the fact that it wasn’t a huge leap for mankind, as far as changing it up, there were some differences that sort of mixed up the formula.”
Change isn't always a bad thing, and if Ian's reasonable concerns have been sequestered, then that's always a good sign!
While we have no information on Crash Pad's release date, we can only hope that it comes out sooner rather than later. We can't go that long without some Dobrev in our lives!
