Nina Dobrev

“Vampire Diaries” co-creator Kevin Williamson recently told E! online that writers have given some thought to turning Elena into a vampire – but not quite yet. Though Elena has joined the ranks of the undead in the books, she will remain warm-blooded for the time being on TV. “That’s news to me,” Nina Dobrev, the actress who plays Elena Gilbert (and vampire Katherine Pierce), told MTV when she found out about Williamson’s revelation. “I have fun playing a human and a vampire so I don’t want [Elena] to turn into a vampire just yet… I’ve got my work cut out for me, and it’s fun to be human.”
