Nina Dobrev Was Professional on TVD Sets despite Break-up
Years before, Dobrev was dating her The Vampire Diaries (TVD) co-star Ian Somerhalder. On the show, their characters – Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore – were a couple.
The on-screen romance became real when the two began dating each other in early 2010. However, after three years of dating, in 2013, the two ended things for good.
Despite their split, they remained professional and continued to play the roles of a couple on the show. In May 2021, a fellow star of The CW show, Claire Holt, talked more on that topic during her appearance on Dear Media’s Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.
She said, “I was on The Originals [TVD’s spin-off show] at that point so I don’t know the timing. But honestly, they were really — they kept it super professional, it never got weird, like props to them.”

“They did a great job at managing that. But it’s hard, like for a lot of people it’s really tough,” she further added.
Not only were they professionals on the show, but they continued to be friends off-screen too. During the 2014 People’s Choice Awards, the former couple had joked about their split.
Furthermore, after the final episode of The Vampire Diaries aired in 2017, Dobrev had a farewell dinner with Somerhalder and his actress wife, Nikki Reed. “I don’t think that’s weird at all,” Dobrev said of the dinner on Watch What Happens Live in 2019.
She further said, “Why can’t everyone be friends? I think they [Somerhalder and Reed] have a beautiful baby, and they are happy and so am I. What’s bad about that? I don’t see any problem with that.”
