The Vampire Diaries creator and showrunner Julie Plec has released a statement about Nina Dobrev‘s exit on the hit vampire drama in a report from Buzzfeed.
Get the scoop:
Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful. After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold. We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.
Dobrev has confirmed her exit via Instagram on Monday (April 7).
