It’s unlikely that Nina Dobrev will return for season 8 of ‘The Vampire Diaries. Nina has scored a few major movie roles and made connections with some of the hottest actors in Hollywood. Isn’t it obvious Nina doesn’t need TVD anymore?
Ian Somerhalder must be steaming mad that Nina isn’t going to come back and resurrect TVD from the dead. Ian’s career is going nowhere – The Vampire Diaries is all Ian has and the actor has already said he’s not returning after season 8.
Look at the list of Hollywood heavyweights starring in ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.’ You have Vin Diesel – just about every action movie he makes is box office gold. There are two Oscar-nominated people in the cast – Samuel L. Jackson and Toni Collette. Then there’s Ruby Rose, who made quite the name for herself as Stella Carlin in ‘Orange is the New Black.’
Why would Nina Dobrev want to come back and work with a D-lister like Ian Somerhalder? The ‘xXx’ franchise is a hot ticket and if Nina plays her cards right she’ll be back for many more movies in the series.
Nina has yet another movie – ‘Crash Pad’ – in post-production and it looks as if Nina has top billing in this one. It’s not just ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ that has Nina in demand right now. A remake of the 1990 movie ‘Flatliners’ is now filming in Toronto. Nina is working with Ellen Page and Kiefer Sutherland and is taking on the role portrayed by Julia Roberts in the original.
Ian Somerhalder’s career is at a dead end. Ian is pushing 40 and is minimally talented at best. Where’s Ian going after TVD is cancelled?
Prior to taking on the role of Damon on ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ Ian’s biggest role was on the ABC primetime drama ‘Lost’ as Boone Carlyle. Boone popped up in only four episodes after being written out in 2005.
It took a little while for Nina’s movie career to get rolling after leaving ‘The Vampire Diaries’ at the end of season 7. But it looks like Nina Dobrev is getting the last laugh now, don’t you think?
