Is Nina Dobrev using her mystery Mark Foster boyfriend to kickstart her movie career? Nina Dobrev‘s movie career has been a long time coming and The Vampire Diaries star has the talent to make a go of one but Nina still hasn’t gotten enough momentum to take off without some additional assistance. Sure, she’s landed bit parts in studio films before, but she hasn’t headlined a film nor has she had an integral supporting role in any of them. However, as we’ve mentioned before, the cast of The Vampire Diaries is excellent at using the media to their advantage, and as such, Nina has a secret weapon in her arsenal – the interest in her love life.
Think about it – the coverage on Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, The Vampire Diaries, and their romantic lives has been covered extensively ever since Nina and Ian began dating all those years ago. However, the cast is barely B-list, at best, and yet, the media coverage is similar to that of an A-list celebrity. That’s because Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have developed a rabid fan following thanks to The Vampire Diaries, and that means that they can easily utilize that to further their own careers.
In fact, Ian did just that with The Anomaly – he managed to land that film opposite some pretty big actors, even though the movie flopping was clearly a sign that his TVD fans weren’t willing to support him in theaters. However, Nina can now utilize her Mark Foster romance to do the same, except she’ll want to land movie roles in films that don’t rest solely on her shoulders for their success.
Now, the fact that Nina Dobrev is dating Mark Foster has been widely publicized over the last few weeks, even though Nina’s camp hasn’t confirmed or denied the rumors. That being said, the sheer interest in her private life shows that her fan following is as strong as ever, and Nina has wisely been using that PR as a campaign to kick start her own movie career. The Vampire Diaries is coming to an end, and Nina has to prove to her agents and to studio executives that she has enough of a brand name to carry her over into film. And you know – she’s young and pretty, and she’ll probably have a better chance at it than Ian ever did.
