BIOGRAPHY:

Nina Dobrev (born Nina Kamenova Dobreva; January 9, 1989) is a Bulgarian Canadian actress and model. She played the role of Mia Jones, the single teenage mother, on Degrassi: The Next Generation, from the show's sixth to ninth season (2006–2009). Since 2009 she has starred as Elena Gilbert on The CW's supernatural drama, The Vampire Diaries.

Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, as Nina Kamenova Dobreva (Bulgarian: Нина Каменова Добрева), and moved to Canada at the age of two, where she was raised in Toronto, Ontario. She speaks fluent English and Bulgarian. She has an older brother, Aleksandar Dobrev. Her father, Kamen Dobrev, is a computer specialist, and her mother, Mihaela Dobreva (née Radeva), is an artist.

Dobrev attended J. B. Tyrrell Sr. Public School, where she started ballet and jazz classes, and competed in rhythmic gymnastics. Then, she attended the arts program at Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts in Scarborough, Ontario, and Ryerson University in Toronto, majoring in sociology. She left in 2008 to pursue her acting career. She took acting classes at Armstrong Acting Studios in Toronto. She is now currently living in Atlanta, Georgia where The Vampire Diaries is shooting.

Dobrev has appeared in a number of feature films, including Fugitive Pieces, Away from Her, Never Cry Werewolf, and the teen television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. She also starred in a number of Lifetime original movies. In 2007 she appeared in the music video of You Got That Light performed by Wade Allain-Marcus and David Baum. She also was in the MTV movie The American Mall. She is currently starring in The CW's supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries, playing the role of Elena Gilbert, a girl loved by two vampire brothers, Damon and Stefan Salvatore.

She also had a role in the erotic thriller Chloe, theatrically released by Sony Pictures Classics on March 26, 2010. The film had enjoyed commercial success and became director Atom Egoyan's biggest moneymaker ever.

In April 2011, Dobrev was cast as Candace in the film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, alongside 'Logan Lerman', 'Emma Watson', 'Paul Rudd' and Ezra Miller. Shooting began in May of that year in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and she completed her scenes on June 27, 2011. The film was released on September 21, 2012.

In August 2014, she starred alongside Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. in the 20th Century Fox comedy Let's Be Cops.

Dobrev loves to travel and has often visited Europe both for pleasure, as well as competing internationally representing Canada in Aesthetic gymnastics. She enjoys playing volleyball, soccer, swimming, rock climbing, wake boarding, snowboarding, and horse back riding to name a few.

But above all acting is her passion, and she sees it as an adventure that has just begun; she believes that the journey and the characters we create along the way will help us understand ourselves.

Dobrev began dating The Vampire Diaries co-star 'Ian Somerhalder' in late 2010. The two split in May 2013.
