Nina Dobrev may not appear on The Vampire Diaries Season 7.

But the actress made a stop this week at an event at The Improv in West Hollywood. And she wasn’t alone!

According to E! News insiders, Dobrev spent time at the Hallmare Shoebox relaunch cozying up to actor Austin Stowell, with the stars even swapping spit at one point.

This sighting comes just days after rumors spread that Dobrev was dating Zedd, and weeks after Dobrev’s famous ex-boyfriend married Nikki Reed.

But Nina has repeated over and over that she and Ian Somerhalder ended their long romance on a friendly note.

She even referred to Somerhalder and Reed’s late April wedding as beautiful in a recent interview.

Still, even if Dobrev is down with Somerhalder moving on, it’s nice to see her doing the same.

The actress stunned fans by announcing her departure from The Vampire Diaries about three-quarters of the way through Season 6.

Stowell, meanwhile, is likely best known for his role in Whiplash.

Up next on the big screen, he’ll star opposite with Tom Hanks in the Steven Spielberg-directed Bridge of Spies; and also will appear in TNT’s upcoming 1960s-set cop drama Public Morals.
