Nina Dobrev True Feelings For Ian Somerhalder Revealed

The Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder may not be dating anymore, but fans are still hoping for a possible reunion in The CW’s supernatural show.

Nina and Ian started dating in 2010. After their fallout in 2013, many wondered the reason behind the split, and fans of The Vampire Diaries even hoped that they will reconcile after a good communication. However, this did not happen. The actor married Nikki Reed and focused on his career. Meanwhile, Nina left the fantasy show and started pursuing her career in different films.

At the same time, it was reported that the Bulgarian actress was furious over him and said to be so angry that she even regrets her time on TVD.

An earlier report from Celeb Dirty Laundry revealed that Nina can’t seem to forgive Ian for their past together. Ian seemingly wanted more from their publicized relationship but Nina was not on the same page with him.

After their split, the Lost actor started dating Twilight actress Nikki Reed, with whom he tied the knot shortly after Nina announced her departure from the show.

An insider close to Dobrev claimed to the publication that the actress has tried to forgive him and move on with her life, but she can’t stand watching Ian and Nikki show off their relationship.

“Nina has tried to stay strong watching Ian and Nikki flaunt their relationship in her face, then witnessed them rush to the altar. And now she’s at the point of regretting her time on The Vampire Diaries completely. Nina knows that if she had never done the show, she wouldn’t have fallen in love with Ian in the first place.”

However, Nina’s statement towards Ian and Nikki’s wedding completely contradicts the claim by the online media outlet.

When she heard the news about their marriage, she told Entertainment Weekly that she shares a unique bond with the actor and after ending her relationship with him, she has finally come to terms with herself and has no bad blood for anyone.

“When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy and so I don’t see why there should be a problem with that.”

The xXx: Return of Xander Cage actress further stated that after their split, she and Ian are still very close and respects his decision of moving on with the Twilight actress.

“I’ve said this before, that we didn’t break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn’t love or friendship. I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he’s great and I care about him. And that didn’t change. Yes, we’re professional and that’s fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now.”

Meanwhile, a lot of Ian-Nina fans were hoping to see their possible reunion in The Vampire Diaries’ last season.

Show creator and executive producer Julie Plec recently dropped a major hint that fans could be seeing their beloved actress return to the vampire-human drama before the show airs its series finale next year.

The last aired episode, titled “Coming Home Was a Mistake,” suggested that Nina could potentially be back, but not in the role of Elena Gilbert but as Katharine.

Plec dished on the scene in her recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, where she addressed the possibility of Nina reprising her role of Katharine.

“I will confirm nothing, but the visual similarities are not accidental. The big question of the season is: How do our characters fit in this world? Are they all doomed? Is there a chance for redemption? Can you earn your way back out of a one-way ticket to Hell?” Plec admitted.
