Nina Dobrev has admitted that she works “crazy” hours on The Vampire Diaries.
The actress plays the roles of vampire Katherine Pierce and doppelganger Elena Gilbert in The CW series and spoke to the Vancouver Sun about the workload.
“I’m not sleeping very much,” she confessed. “The hours are pretty crazy and I’m working a lot; I’m actually becoming a vampire in my own right.”
However, she added: “But it’s great – it’s a really great opportunity that I’ve been given.”
Discussing the differences between the two characters, Dobrev said: “As Katherine, I can get away with a lot more and say a lot more and be a little bit more edgy and bad. She has a very playful personality. As soon as I put on the heels and they start curling my hair, I’m in the zone.
“As Elena, it’s the same thing: I put on the Converse and jeans and a T-shirt, and I feel like this strong young woman, figuring herself out. That’s who she is: she’s figuring herself out and she’s growing.”
The Vampire Diaries continues on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW
