Nina Dobrev Wants to Play a Punk or Drug Addict in Her Next Movie
In addition, the Elena Gilbert on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ shares how people sometimes doubt her acting skill and wishes they could be ‘a little more open-minded.’Nina Dobrev has revealed her wish to portray various kinds of role. In an interview with Nylon magazine for its February issue, the Bulgaria-born actress, who plays Katherine/Elena on “The Vampire Diaries”, shared that she would like to ditch her good-girl persona and play a punk or a junkie.
“I want to become a different person, and that’s what working in film allows. I want to be a punk or a sweetheart or a drug addict! There are so many things to explore,” she said. “Sometimes they’ll be like, ‘She’s not plain enough.’ Or ‘She’s not edgy enough.’ That frustrates me. I feel like a blank canvas, and I wish people would be a little more open-minded.”
Beside talking about doing more films, Nina gushed about Drake, her former “Degrassi: The Next Generation” co-star. “He was so sweet. It’s almost weird to me that he’s a rapper and a sex symbol now. I remember being in the car going to a party, singing along with the radio, and somebody said ‘Isn’t that your buddy Drake?’ I was like, ‘Who’s Drake?’,” she spilled.
Additionally, Nina told the publication about her fondness for cats. “I’m gonna say [I am a] ‘cat woman,’ because ‘cat lady’ makes me sound 500 years old,” she shared before adding, “But I love my furry friends. I even made a calendar for 2012. It’s called My Pussies: A Hairy Love Story. [Cats] just migrate to me. I’m pretty sure I was a cat in a past life.”
