It’s summer break for The Vampire Diaries, but that’s not keeping Mystic Falls’ resident emotional vamp Nina Dobrev hiding from the sun-, erh, spotlight. The 24-year-old actress is Company magazine’s July 2013 cover girl! And she’s dishing on basically everything besides TVD (and the news that broke our hearts).
If she wasn’t tearing up the town alongside Paul Wesley and ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder on television, what else would she be doing? “I was a rhythmic and athletic gymnast for a little while. Then, when I quit gymnastics, I fell in love with yoga. So sometimes I think I’d like to open up a yoga studio.”
But that’s not the only career move she once considered: “I’ve always dreamed of being a Burberry Girl, but I know it’ll never happen because I’m not British. Still, you can’t stop a girl from dreaming. And owning way too many Burberry coats!”
In other news, bestie Candice Accola is engaged! But despite how close she is with CA, as well as the other girls from The Vampire Diaries, Nina admits that developing friendships isn’t always easy in the business: “[Life in Hollywood is] exciting because it’s so sunny and beautiful there, but at the same time there’s something a bit distant about Los Angeles. It’s hard to make good friends. Everyone’s in their car, with their sunglasses on, and disconnected. But Hollywood is work — then Venice by the beach is play.”
