Nina Dobrev takes over the September 2012 issue of Ocean Drive magazine.
The 23-year-old actress chatted about her fashion on the red carpet, her parents and her dream roles. Check it:
On red carpet fashion: “I think the Donna Karen red gown that I wore to the Emmys last year is what people think about. That’s when I started to get recognized for fashion. From that point forward, people were watching. There was this incredible pressure all of a sudden. Now it’s like there’s a bar that’s been set. But it’s fun to put things together—it’s really another form of expression.”
On the role she’d love to take on: “My dream role is to do a James Bond film, or if they did another Lara Craft, or even a prequel Lara Croft, I’d want to do that, to get it out of my system.”
On her family takes to her fame: “Luckily, my parents are overseas a lot, so it’s a delayed reaction. The conversation I’ll have with my dad is always different from the one I’ll have with my mom. My mom understands a lot more, and my dad—well he’s my dad. He’s more apprehensive about me being in this industry. It’s almost like being a character: I’ve done movies where there are simulated sex scenes, so they understand, but it’s always kind of awkward. They say things like, ‘Oh you look great. That’s interesting.’ I always pride myself on the fact that I’ve gotten this far without taking my clothes off.”
