Nina Dobrev may star on The Vampire Diaries, but she portrays a relatively normal character. Elena Gilbert is a mere mortal, after all.
Hence why the young star wants to expand her resume to include more movies, telling the latest issue of Nylon “I want to become a different person" and adding:
"I want to be a punk or a sweetheart or a drug addict! There are so many things to explore... 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.”
Dobrev is on the verge of major stardom, despite her small screen status, thanks to the wild popularity of her CW show and her relationship with Ian Somerhalder. But the actress says she wants to maintain a bit of anonymity overall.
“I can’t say I’m not interested in Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their family," Dobrev says. "But it’s something you fight really hard to preserve and keep private.”
